Prepare your wallet and belly for overload. I've never seen so many ice cream options! You get huge serving size but the price tag matches it too. When it's really crowded there's no option but to sit in your car to eat, but with a volcano size sundae,who even cares ;)

The place is cute with lots of nostalgic decor; however, the line to order and pay is a bit chaotic during busy times. The ice cream was good, not great, but ok. They offer a decent variety with a wide selection of toppings. If in the area we would return.

We were looking for a different ice cream parlor and got lost trying to locate it - so glad we did! Cool Scoops is the best ice cream place in Wildwood, hands down! The outside of the building draws you in right away, with bright colors and portraits of famous people enjoying ice cream. Walking in, we were totally unprepared... More

Enough ice cream selections for everyone, both soft serve and traditional. Great retro decorations and memorabilia! A few booths are from old cars. Clean and well maintained. Don't miss it!

We just went there last week while staying in Wildwood. 2 of us had the Kryptonite and said it was great. I myself had a pistachio ice cream, and my mother tried the vanilla soft-serve with a sugarfree chocolate syrup, and loved it. Prices are reasonable, the people are very nice, and the decor is great. We went on a... More

We had ice cream at Cool Scoops twice during our stay in Wildwood. The ice cream was good but the big drawer is the 1950's décor. It was fun to look at all of the old photos of famous actors and performers and the nostalgic items that they displayed all over the shop. You could even have your ice cream... More

Cute shop but ice cream is just average...nothing special & probably not worth the wait. Go, if it's off hours or off season.
