This award-winning visitor experience, created by leading UK operator Continuum and opened on 31st March 2012, tells the rich story of York’s chocolate-making in a unique and engaging style.

The attraction blends technology and reality in quirky ways that provide an immersive, sensory experience for the visitor. Multiple timed exhibits and media characters are designed to interact with the staff and public throughout the exhibition, and a key project requirement was that these engagements should be facilitated with simple and intuitive user interfaces.
