"I can't reveal too much, but what I can say is the new experience is one-of-a-kind and will take viewers to another dimension," said a source from inside the Hershey's Chocolate World Attraction, who only agreed to speak on the condition of anonymity, "and we've taken extra care to ensure visitors will not have the same experience twice."

No official details have been announced to date, but clues are beginning to pile up that may help visitors decode what's to come.  This video was just found on the premises, with a mysterious note signed only with an "H." 

Hershey's will share breaking developments as clues are discovered throughout March 2013. Fans are invited to share their findings, theories and guesses about the new experience on the Hershey's Chocolate World Attraction Facebook page.
