My mom and I went to Turkey Hill experience today and it was good. It is a hands on experience for people who like to touch things, it is great for younger kids. Though it is very noisy and disorganize. They also have a tea tasting and ice cream tastings and you can go back up as many times as... More

We went on Sunday when they first opened so our breakfast was a pint of ice cream with a flavor we made ourselves. Free samples of ice tea and ice cream. Cute activities.

Was hesitant to go because of the mixed reviews on here... but was really happy we went. Interesting and very interactive and tons of free samples. Lots to see and we did the taste lab which you make your own flavor ice cream - and get to take it home (bring a cooler). Cute and clean and very personable staff

We were visiting relatives in the area and thought it would be a fun diversion for the kiddos. Overall, the attraction is vibrant yet cramped. They have a lot of interactive exhibits and this kids enjoyed climbing and testing them all out. But I always felt like I was bumping into people. The sampling of the ice cream and drinks... More

I recently visited the Turkey Hill Experience with my grandsons, ages 6 and 4, and my daughter, their mom. We arrived when the place was opening and easily found a parking space next to the building. We attended the first "make your own ice cream" session and enjoyed learning how ice cream is flavored and we each made our own... More

This was a rip-off! $9.50 for the self-guided tour which consisted of reading about the company's history and development. There was a 3 minute movie narrated by a cartoon cow. Free samples were available of the drinks and ice cream - all for $9.50. If you wanted to play ice cream scientist and make your own ice cream the cost... More

All the tastings were great!! The interactive part wasn't as much as I expected but the kids still thought it was fun. I wouldn't make a long trip just for this place but as an add-on to Amish town or Dutch wonderland it was perfect!!

How do you waste $20 in one half hour, and that's stretching out your stay? Pay for admittance to this experience and then feel like you've been taken. The experience includes iced tea and lemonade tastings, ice cream tastings, and an embarrassingly stupid cartoon. Thank god we didn't pay the premium price to make some ice cream. A tourist trap...

This place is way too pricey for what it is. There's not much for kids to do or see. It would be great for them to actually see the factory or process of making the ice cream. Wasn't impressed at all. We paid thirty bucks for family of four to be there for an hour bc that's all it took... More

Initial interaction was having a young man run up to my vehicle after my family was out of the vehicle and tell me we couldn't park in the parking lot because it was for other building tenants. I was forced to park on the busy side street in front of the building. After that we had a great time. The... More
