Hershey's Chocolate World

Feed your sugary fantasies in attractions dedicated to all things cocoa-related at this chocolate-themed attraction.

The town of Hershey thrived because of the beloved candy that is celebrated at Hershey's Chocolate World. Watch shows, explore a replica factory and take part in hands-on chocolate experiences. Spend an entire day learning about and tasting Hershey's candy and at the end of it all, you can decide whether there is ever such a thing as too much chocolate.

It's hard to overstate the impact of Milton Hershey on the town of the same name. As well as his chocolate, which is wildly popular throughout the U.S., Hershey was also responsible for many of the town's most popular sights, such as the gardens and theater. His main legacy, however, is undoubtedly his confectionery, which is the topic of every attraction in Hershey's Chocolate World.

Ride a train that follows the journey of a candy bar on Hershey's Chocolate Tour, an attraction that allows visitors to trace the production from cocoa bean to final product. The carriage takes you through a replica factory and explains what goes into making chocolate so tasty. Enjoy a taster of the chocolate after the tour has finished.

Put on a pair of stereoscopic glasses for the 4D Chocolate Experience, an interactive animated show featuring confectionery characters. This unique attraction has over 100 different possible outcomes, ensuring each show is different.

For those visitors who want to eat more chocolate, the Chocolate Tasting Experience and Create Your Own Candy Bar sessions let you realize your childhood dreams. Choose what you want to go into your bar and design your wrapper for a unique souvenir.

Hop on the Trolley Works into Hershey to see the long-lasting impact of the famous businessman. The tour takes you through the town built on the back of the confectionery industry.

Hershey's Chocolate World is located near other Hershey attractions, including the theme park and the theater, which is about half an hour away on foot. Use on-site parking which is free for the first 3 hours or all day if you buy tickets to multiple attractions.
