This place is ok for kids but not much to see or experience for an adult. I went through the experience alone and decided it's probably not a place my grandchildren would be that excited to see.

I love the experience from the historical postings to the information on how the ice cream is made. Of course, the best part includes the samples of iced tea and ice cream, but designing your own flavor/packaging/commercial is a lot of fun too!

We had a great 2 hour trip to the Experience with our 7 year old niece and nephew and their parents and grandparents. The exhibits are hands on and fun for all ages. Many are educational and there's a "build your own ice cream" theme that ties several activities together. The included samples of ice cream and cold teas and... More

The Turkey Hill Experience was educational and fun for the whole family. My kids, ages 7 and 10, really enjoyed the interactive displays, games and the Taste Lab. This is a great place to visit when in the area, especially during colder months or rainy days. There's a bit of an order to follow for the Experience, so check a... More

I work for a before and afterschool program and we take the children on trips on days off from school. We did several trips over the Christmas break and, by far, this was my favorite. The kids had a blast creating their own commercial and enjoying the hands on exhibits and we all loved the flavor lab. My only complaint... More

Your ticket gives you as many samples as you want. And they are not tiny either! You can pay an extra fee to make your own pint which was fun and added to the experience. My mom and I ended up eating an ice cream lunch! Lots to learn about ice cream, the company and farming. I highly recommend.

This is a fun place to go but there's not a lot to do. There are a few interactive things to see and do, like the small ball pit for toddlers and the trucks to climb in and out of, but the whole experience is on one floor and you're done in about 1/2 hour. You can create your own... More

I was worried that the teens will get bored but they were kept engaged with the LAB experience and the free samples. Pretty worth visiting but would have been more fun to see how actual ice cream is being produced. The LAB experience only lets you create your own ice cream flavors and not make the ice cream. Still, it's... More

Turkey Hill Experience is fun for all ages, and a must do. You can flavor your own ice cream. They give you a pint of ice cream and they instruct you in a classroom setting how to flavor it and afterwards you can eat it. You can make a commercial and it immediately goes to your e-mail, eat all the... More
