Turkey Hill Experience is great for all ages. You learn how the milk gets from the cow to your refrigerator. You can even milk a (fake) cow. Using a computer, you can create your own flavor of ice cream, design the carton and then make a commercial for it. There are free samples of ice cream and ice tea. Gift... More

We had a wonderful and fun time at this attraction. It was for the ice cream lover in all of us! The best part was making our own flavor of ice cream. The interactive displays were informative and a fun experience.

This is very good for young children with interactive experiences and just plain fun things to do. It takes about 1 hour to explore the interactive stuff and we bought the extra "Taste Lab" experience where you make your own ice cream flavour. This was the last activity on our day of touring and we had one very happy and... More

We visited with two kids, 6 and 8. They loved it! We also did the ice cream lab which I highly recommend. We learned a lot of cool things about our favorite dessert and got to make our own concoction in the lab. We also got to taste current ice creams and drinks. Come ready to eat some icecream, especially... More

Was pleasantly surprised how neat it was. Full of kids of all sizes but saw a few grown ups too. Make your own ice cream is awesome

My husband and I went and had a blast. You can milk a fake cow, sample ice cream till you get a headache and wash it down with tea. Making your very own ice cream is an awesome treat. Would do it again.

This was a lot of fun. We enjoyed the whole thing. The Turkey Hill folks were so friendly and helpful, they made a great experience an even better one. When you go, get the combo ticket with the lab to create your own flavor. (The combo gives you admission to the National Watch & Clock museum a few blocks away.)... More

This was a day trip for us - my husband and I, our son, daughter-in-law and 4 year old granddaughter. Don't make this trip without adding on the lab - making our own flavor was fun! When you take part in the ice cream lab you need to arrive 45 minutes prior to your time. That gives you more than... More
