Hands on ice cream adventure. We did the very basic tour and were very happy. Unlimited samples of ice cream and Turkey Hill brand drinks. Vanilla Latte and black cherry pomegranate tea two of the best!

The website says plan for 2 1/2 to 3 hours to do both the Experience and the Lab. That's only if you are the first person in. The lab times sell out quickly, so get their early. We got there just after 10 a.m. and the earliest lab time we could get was 12:15 p.m. -- which is okay, because... More

This was a great stop for my four-year-old, six-year-old, mother, my husband and me. We spent over three hours learning about ice cream, sampling lots of flavors, inventing and marketing our own flavor and actually creating like a pint of our own ice cream creation. My kids loved milking the fake cows. The staff was really really friendly!

We ended up spending over 3 hours here. It was a great way to learn the history of Turkey Hill, how ice cream is made, and what goes into making it on such a large scale. It was educational, but also fun, with a lot interactive displays and games for the kids to play to re-inforce the concept of each... More

Brought my daughter here and we had such a great time. From sampling ice creams and teas.. to making our own ice cream and commercial. A cute place to spend 2-3 hours at on an afternoon. Very clean facility and such nice workers.

My husband and I passed this on a drive last year. I was curious (and I love Turkey Hill ice cream) so we planned it in as a stop on a trip last week. We had such a great time- we felt like kids in a candy (well, ice cream) shop! There are two ticket options to purchase- one of... More

Who doesn't like Ice Cream? Since I have grown up in the Philadelphia area all of my life I have been having Turkey Hill Ice Cream since I was little; later in life learning they make Ice Teas and Lemonades just as well as the Ice Cream! Upon entering you walk into the lobby/gift shop area, once you get your... More

We had a fun, light-hearted (and educational) experience. We learned about cows, farms, the Turkey Hill company, and how ice cream is made, all in a fun way. We pretended to milk a cow, and took pictures in the posing places. We played the games and enjoyed the various activities. The best part was sampling the ice cream and tea... More

We enjoyed every minute of our time here. We stopped by because we knew the stores but this was more than I expected. The exhibits were well done and engaging , there was an abundance for ice creams and teas to sample and we even designed our own ice cream flavor. The staff were very service focused and made us...

We had a coupon through Certifikid and drove from Metro DC to check this place out. We drove up in the morning on a Sunday and got there at about 11:30. Mike's Diner and Pizza Hut are in the same building and Burger King is behind the building. We opted for Mike's Diner, but they are a little slow which... More
