We made reservations online for the experience and Taste Lab. It was $14.50 for adults and $12.50 juniors. We were instructed to arrive 45 minutes before the taste lab time. 5 minutes before your time slot you wait by the door in the back. The taste lab is a pint of soft ice cream. You mix in flavoring such as... More

Just came back from doing the Turkey Hill Experience. We went by it the other day and there were only six cars in the parking lot. We went today (the day before Labor Day) and it was packed out. My advice, don't go on a holiday weekend. Anyway, it was expensive to get in in our opinion, however, you get... More

My family stopped here to take the tour. What a great time we had. We were able to sample as much of their ice tea, lemonades or other beverages that we wanted. We were also able to sample from 6 different flavors of their ice creams, once complete scoop each time. We had a great time making a virtual ice... More

We came here as a family, grandparents, parents and 2 teenagers.. Everyone enjoyed it.. The story of Turkey Hill, and how they make ice cream kept everybody interested. Not to mention unlimited tasting of ice cream and their drinks.. Kept going back to taste the different teas/drinks, and they never had a problem letting us try different things. The major... More

I thought this was so much fun for the kids, 9 and 11. The lab was fun too, but really just mixing up vanilla ice cream with toppings. But it was still fun. Fun activity. We were there for three hours.

Very neat place and fun activities to participate in. Meant more for families with young kids. And as others have said, buy Taste Lab tickets in advance.

I was underwhelmed by this and my expectations were low. A stop on our family vacation with my 4 yr old. The exhibits were fun and had some potential. The highlight of this trip should have been the sampling of flavors. The promotional materials highlighted the 21 flavors available. There were 8, and very few of the "Top 25" flavors... More

I took my daughter and four grandchildren and it cost me $71 and that included the Lab where you make your own flavor ice cream. You each get a pint of ice cream to eat right away or take home. Before we went to the Lab we had so much to do. We designed our own ice cream and carton... More

Lots of fun. We didn't know you had to make a reservation to create ice cream and had to wait 2 1/2 hours! Stuff to do, better for families with kids 10 and younger. My kids did love making an ice cream creation BUT you have to eat the pint you create or live closeby. No way to get the... More

If you are in the York/Lancaster area and are looking for something to do for a few hours, make this trip. It's fun, the kids LOVE it, but you MUST do the TASTE LAB. You create your own, custom ice cream flavor and you take a pint of it with you! It is clean and there are lots exhibits for... More
