We went to the Turkey Hill Experience last week and had a nice time. If you're thinking you're going to see the factory making the ice cream this is not the place. However if you're looking for a great time learning the process and interactive, hands on experience of making ice cream; this is the place. We had a great... More

This was our 1st trip to the experience and was so glad we went. My 2 sons (15 and 4) and my husband and I all had a blast. A lot of interactive things such as cow milking and making your own ice cream.. Packaging and flavors. My little one loves the ball pit! There is even a bacteria blasting... More

My wife & I just drove out of Lancaster, needed gas so I saw Turkey Hill and pulled off of road. We parked and I went in , coaxed my wife out of the car ( she was glad she came in ). We got a good education on how to make Ice Cream. Great family spot. Best part was... More

Just went there yesterday with a friend, for her body. So, much Fun! First time there. We only did the Experience with the samples and walk thru history. There is also the Lab where you get to create your own flavor. Next time. As for the facility, the workers are very friendly and informative. The look outside of the building... More

We have been here twice - once with the grandchildren and another with family. It is a wonderful place for all ages. We saw how Turkey Hill got started, went through the process of "creating" our own ice cream, packaging and advertisement. Then we were able to taste several different kinds of ice cream and Turkey Hill iced teas. We... More

I saw the ad on the side of an ice cream carton about getting a tour. Since I was planning a trip to Lancaster County, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to try something new. It was great! I went with my Mother and Brother. We were like little kids in a candy shop. We paid the extra money to... More

Housed in a former silk mill, the full Experience starts with museum quality exhibits giving a detailed history of the area and the Turkey Hill company. Then it's on to viewing a short film and afterward creating your own ice cream flavor with a touch screen. A picture of your creation will be emailed to you. Finally you are ushered... More

We arrived with three teens in tow, and forced them to join us for this "Experience." You know we were already in trouble, right, when we use the words "forced" and "teens" in the same sentence? The flavor lab was already booked with no more room, so we were left to do the less expensive "Experience" alone. At 7.95 per... More

If you happen to be passing through the area, this is a fun place to spend an hour or two. You can learn about the history of Turkey Hill, and the dairy business in general. There are tastings of Turkey Hill ice creams and beverages. There are a few interactive things you can do like make a TV commercial or... More

Not much of a tour. Was expecting to get a tour of a working plant instead of a self-guided tour which seems to be geared towards younger children. You can sample as much ice cream and iced tea as you want but you can buy plenty for the cost of admission. If you don’t have kids you can skip this... More
