We spent a day at Hershey Park on our recent cross country road trip. Our friends said we could not miss Chocolate World so we went there first. Thankfully they were giving out 3 hours of free parking (otherwise it's $35/day!). After Chocolate World we moved the car to the main lot which is literally right next door but costs $15 day. Basically Chocolate world is not much more than a giant gift store. We didn't need to spend $15 to make our own chocolate bar or ride a trolley. The free "factory tour" is incredibly corny and badly done (singing cows). The soundtrack music was awful and way too loud. Yet, we were rolling with laughter by the time it was done, and amazingly you do actually learn a bit about how chocolate is made. There's also a bit of history about the company and specifically, Mr. Hershey.
