“Really Fun Attraction”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We did the make your own chocolate bar (complete with hair nets)! Chocolate University, rode the Chocolate ride twice and enjoyed just staring at the food court! Also the 4D movie was really cute and interactive with the audience. My family truly enjoyed all the activities even the tour of Hershey via the trolley. The guide was so fun and informative and of course you received chocolate at, during and at the end of everything you did. What more could you want>?!>?

You have to do the Chocolate Tasting class, it is actually very informative, and you get free chocolate. What else do you really need to know.

“Spend the day in Hershey”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Hershey's Chocolate Word is one of several things you can do in this area. There is Hershey Park and Hershey Arena. But went to Chocolate World and spend around 4 or 5 hours there. There is no admission to this attraction but there are charges for things that you can do while inside. The free item is a short ride that shows you how chocolate is made from bean to finished product. That was a good information attraction. The other things you can do that do cost are the Chocolate University where you get to look, feel, smell and taste different types of chocolates and when your done you get university degree. They also have a 4D movie area that you help capture who was breaking into the chocolate factory (sorry no hints). You can also make your own candy bar which you get to choose what you want in it (dark chocolate, white chocolate, chocolate and different things like chocolate chips, butterscotch, sprinkles etc) That was fun and your wrapper had your name on it. Also they have a trolley ride that you can take. We didn't do this so can't tell you much about it. But overall it is a good place to visit and the cost isn't really that expensive for the different items. They also have a nice food court where you can get sandwiches, pizza, and other things. And of course there is the gift area where you can get your favorite chocolate products, Twizzlers, Reese's and different souvenirs such as hats, shirts. stuffed animals, cups etc. Well hope this review helps you a little if you are planning on going to Hershey.

“Just ok”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

A nice stop after a full day at hershepark. Nice gift shop, cute ride with sample at the end. Make your own chocolate was expensive so we didn't do it. Still debating on the 4d movie for tomorrow.

“It's Chocolate!!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

It smelled so great when you walk through the doors. Got here first thing in the morning. The person at the front door gave us the advice to do the free tour while it wasn't crowded and then buy tickets to whatever we wanted to do. That was great advice. It did get crowd later on in the morning. Loved the free tour along with the free chocolate they give away at the end. We bought the all inclusive pass which included the tasting of chocolate, the 4D movie, trolley tour and the make you own chocolate. These tours all had specific start times. These were all worth the price of the ticket. There is even a food court here. They make hard pretzels with chocolate and chocolate covered chicken. All was delicious. The 4D movie was fun to watch. The most fun tour was the make you own chocolate bar. You have to wear an apron along with a hairnet (they are provided). The trolley tour was cute and educational. Before I took the tours, I didn't realize that Hershey made so many different candies, yet they do make a lot. The gift shop was huge and had almost anything you can imagine Hershey making.Loved seeing the characters walking around and getting pics with them. Would love to do this place again.
