We visited here as part my vacation with my kids ages 8, 12 and 14. We purchased the experience plus the Taste Lab. We went on a Saturday afternoon and it was not too crowded this day. The taste lab was very hands on and interesting. The tour was nice. My kids milked the mechanical cow and we had plenty... More

Stopped because I'm an admitted ice cream addict. The place was MOBBED on a hot Saturday. In fact, a bus came in as we were leaving and the place was already packed. While we really enjoyed the unlimited free ice cream samples- we could have just skipped the crowd and bought elsewhere. That said, I would return with grandchildren on... More

We had a great time at the Turkey Hill Experience!! The kids loved making their own ice cream flavor and taste testing all the other ice cream flavored.

This was an unexpected stop on our trip but it quickly became the highlight of the trip. If you hate ice cream and delicious tea then stop reading now. If you love ice cream and want to get your creative side going make sure you get a ticket for the testing lab. In the lab you are given a base... More

We stopped here because it sounded fun and something different. It may well be but the day we were there it was over run with buses full of kids. We opted to look over the gift shop and go on our way without doing the "experience".

Well, they do charge you for this huge advertisement, but most people leave happy. Funny how people still think of it as "free samples" when you paid to get in. It is very professionally designed and slightly educational. Mostly it is about all you can eat ice cream, though. The climax of the experience is a not-so-well-done "lab" where you... More

This is a good place to visit, especially if you are bringing children. I brought a teen and a 21 year old and both had a good time. They liked the hands on experience and the all you can eat samples of ice cream. No wait on anything but be prepared to share your visit with lots of elementary age... More

Enjoyable and entertaining afternoon with the family. Even with the regular experience you can sample different flavors at the end along with Turkey Hill drinks.
