“Yummy and different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

My kids loved this. One got a mix in made in a way I've never seen and the other got an iced coffee that was very tasty. It's not cheap and I'll still never get used to pay $5 for ice cream but that's not their fault.
The staff is friendly and best of all it's right next to the Walnut Street Bridge...get your cone and go for a walk!

“As a local, my favorite ice cream in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

The ice cream show is a place I visit every time I am downtown! I love that you can get yogurt as a choice and then I usually try different mix ins every time. I like flavored soft serve and don't like marble slab creameries where the ice cream is melted by the time you get it. This is an excellent soft serve.

“Make your Taste”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

The Ice Cream Show is interesting. They claim to have a thousand flavors, which if you do the math I guess it is possible. You can order a base ice cream such as chocolate or vanilla and then a topping of combination of toppings. The ice cream was not bad, but a little pricey for ice cream. Although there was a crowd standing in line the staff quickly and efficiently handled everyone. Our wait was less than five minutes. You may eat inside or outside. Inside is crowded and noisy. Outside there are a limited number of tables and seats, but if the weather is nice, I would prefer the outside. This place is a little hidden. It is at the end of the Walnut pedestrian bridge so look for it on the town side of the river.

“Limitless Ice Cream/Yogurt Options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

You can choose vanilla or chocolate yogurt or ice cream. Then you choose your mix-in options. They have a huge selection. They mix your selection together and serve it to like a soft serve. It was the perfect afternoon snack.
