The ice cream at Private Island was delicious. They have a number of chalkboards with lists of potential toppings. It's $5.50 for an ice cream with any 3 toppings. I chose Nutella, peanut butter and chocolate chips (I'd recommend it wholeheartedly). The toppings are mixed with a liquid ice cream base and then turned into ice cream with liquid nitrogen.

We stopped by having read about Private Island are are very pleased that we did. It's a functional place with no glamour, but the ice cream was good and the experience of having it made gor us was fun. We will be back.

If you are anywhere near the Orlando area you MUSt try this place. I have never tasted ice cream sooo good. And I eat a lot trust me, yogurt, gelato, custard.. This beats them all. Our family tried sea salt caramel, bananas foster(heaven in your mouth), and peach which tasted like peach cobbler with ice cream! Wish we had this... More

Both myself and my boyfriend are huge ice cream fans and when we saw this we just had to go. I love how you can make your own creation, we had banana, marshmallows and pretzels in ours and it was amazing. The staff here are really friendly and the portions are huge so great value for money. We sat and... More

This was a fun stop for a cold treat on a warm day. The owner was present and made our ice cream by hand. It is a small place with only a few places to sit. The place was not open when we first stopped in as the owner was at a catering event. We ate next door then came... More

We visited Private Island one sunny afternoon. It is opposite Gatorland and difficult to see from the road BUT it is worth the drive from anywhere. My daughter wanted Nutella, Oreo and Gummi Bear ice cream...all made in front of her and frozen before our eyes. I went for a more normal combination as did my husband...all were delicious and...

Absolutely delicious ice cream. I got chocolate caramel sea salt and it hit every craving I had been having. I was 100% pleased with my ice cream, but the two others in my group thought theirs was just okay. It was a fun thing to go try and very cool to watch them create your ice cream from standard ingredients.... More
