Cool idea good ice cream.

Never been to a place like that but it is simple, you choose chocolate or vanilla then any one of the massive amounts of toppings. They use a tornado mixer (not site what to call it) and bam a mixed delight. Better than cold stone. Don't miss this place. It is at the end of the bridge walk.

We first had ice cream at The Ice Cream Show two years ago and haven't stopped talking about it since. We were in town today and despite having birthday cake after lunch, we had to go to the Ice Cream Show. It's way better than all the frozen yogurt places and way better than Coldstone. It's the best - ever!

Found this place thru trip advisor. Was an excellent choice. The owner was there and explained how to order. It was amazing. I got the vanilla and added strawberries and cheesecake. My husband got vanilla with butterfingers. We will definitely be back!!

After walking across the bridge, we treated ourselves to ice cream here. There are so many endless combinations. If you happen to be undecided like me, they have a board showing popular flavors that you can choose from or create your own. I had the raspberry peach pineapple, it's a sherbet and very refreshing and delicious! You can either eat... More

Was in the area on such a beautiful day and we just happened to stumble upon this place. Atmosphere was Great! Basically they have Vanilla and Chocolate Ice Cream (soft serve) and you pick what ingredients you want them to mix with either Vanilla or Chocolate. I got the Amaretto mixed with Vanilla, and I have to honestly say this... More

I don't know what it is specifically. It's just basic ice cream and you pick your ingredients. But the way they blend it is all the difference. I wish I could replicate it but I can't. A must do!!!

Basically it's just another ice cream place. You choose between chocolate or vanilla and they blend in your choice of 40 toppings. I did like the decor of the restaurant but was expecting some kind of real show since it's called The Ice Cream Show.

I know I maybe should be more complicated than this... and I know its kind of gimmicky to make your own ice-cream flavor... but I can't help it... the ice-cream here is just really good. I like it.
