Something different to do!

Went with an 11 and 13 year old this summer. It was a nice outing and something different to do. However, plan on paying extra for the "make your own ice cream" activity. That... read more

Thankfully it was free for children 4 and under. I took my 4 year old there so it only cost my nearly $10 admission. Turkey Hill must want people to go and equate it with Hershey's Chocolate World. The Turkey Hill Experience requires LOTS of reading. I'm sure there is a lot of great information there but there is no... More

Went with an 11 and 13 year old this summer. It was a nice outing and something different to do. However, plan on paying extra for the "make your own ice cream" activity. That made the whole experience. You do receive free ice cream and free ice tea regardless but if you're traveling any distance, it wouldn't be worth the... More

The ice cream experiment lab was excellent! The computer programs set up prior to the lab experience was the horrible. They need more computers and more helpful workers. I was there with two other friends and got treated dismally by the young "worker" I think his name was Glenn. At any rate we waited in line like everyone else but... More

Would have been nice if it was the actual factory. My 8 year old decided that she just wanted a Tshirt and walked around the gift shop, she didn't care to just walk through a building unless she was seeing the real thing being made.

We are a senior couple and decided to visit the Turkey Hill Experience and also did the taste lab. We had so much fun and would love to go back again some time. There was so much ice cream tasting, iced tea, iced coffee, and lemonades also, to our delight. It is a great place for families with children and... More

This was not what I was expecting at all. This is not the ice cream factory. You will not see ice cream being made. The closest you get to that is looking at live video cams of the factory. But what really disappointed me was the "all you can eat" ice cream. While that may be true, it is very... More

This attraction was a pleasant surprise as we took our grandkids and their families to Turkey Hill. What a fun afternoon as we interacted with computers, videos, and the like. Our grandkids really liked to milk the cow. They also liked the opportunity to make their own ice cream flavor. Eating ice cream was the highlight of the day. Gene... More

We hit the Turkeyhill Experience for a little weekend diversion. To be honest, neither of us were big Turkeyhill fans but decided to give it a go. They provide an opportunity to taste 8 or so of their ice creams and about 15 of their beverages as well as an understanding about their operations. It is definitely geared at kids... More

There is more than free Ice Cream and Ice Tea samples. We recently visited the Turkey Hill Experience with our 2 grandsons. One was 5 and other was 10. They had a blast. Arrived mid-morning and are glad we did. This place got really busy after lunch. It was a great 3 hours with our grandsons and they want to... More
