Visited because we got a deal through Living Social. Later found out this was because the Taste Lab was closed for renovations. Still got to experience the free samples though :-) My kids are 9 & 7, which seemed to be an appropriate age for this. Younger ages may be bored-it may be a little over their head. Overall a...

A great stop for kids and adults! The Taste Lab is definitely worth the price; you get a pint of self-created ice cream to take with you. There are also ice cream and tea samples all around as you "milk a cow," create your very own ice cream container label and film your own commercial.

We took our nine year old granddaughter while she was visiting us for a few days. I had read mixed reviews, but still felt I wanted to check the place out. I am glad we did. We had a lot of fun. The best way to describe this place is that it is an interactive museum. There is a lot... More

We were here on 2/28/15 and we had a great time. They have about 16 flavors of ice-cream, at all times, and you can try any one you want...as many times as you want. HEAVEN! You are able to make a "virtual" ice-cream. You choose flavors, the name, the container and can even make a 30 second commercial for your... More

Greetings, Thank you for taking the time to write your Fun & Yummy review. The CYO codes at THE can only accept one email at a time. To receive three different emails you would need three different emails. Unfortunately, this is out of my control but if you send me your CYO information I would be more than happy to... More

I loved the fact that I could try the different drinks that Turkey Hill has... found my new favorite to be honest! Then I made my own ice cream that was pretty amazing. I didn't have kids with me but continued to think of how fun this place would be with kids because it was very kid friendly & had... More

Nice place to visit to learn about not only Turkey Hill but ice cream as well. And there are samples of ice cream to be had. Lots of hands on things to do for the young and young at heart.

I'm definitely not agreeing with the reviewer that said there is not alot to do. My kids who generally rush to see things then rush out stayed for three hours. You can create your ice cream, create packaging for the ice cream, record a commercial, play in a ball pit, eat all the ice cream you want and many other... More

With some time to kill on a Sunday, we decided to try the Turkey Hill Experience. Yes, they mean unlimited samples. They gave decent sized scoops but we were still not discouraged from going up and getting more. We learned about the history of Turkey Hill as well as how ice cream is made. It's very interactive which is good... More
