Valhalla!! Here is where it happens folks! Or at least it WAS until corporate hijinks planted very dirty stuff ther to discredit the #2 ice cream in the country. The south may not rise again, but BLUE BELL certainly will! Isn't is strange that for over a hundred years they had zero problems, but once the public tasted what they... More

It was very reasonable besides being interesting. Our tour guide was very nice. You could pick your flavor of ice cream and buy an extra dip for .50. There were two books which you could look at about Tulsa and Broken Arrow while waiting which were interesting

I have taken the tour with my kids a few times (School Related). Blue Bell is truly the best icecream, next to home-made. My kids truly love watching the workers package and box the product as well as sample at the end. It is a major highlight for them. The staff here is top notch and very polite to the... More

This was a great stop for our family - my parents, my sis-in-law, and our kids (ranging from 2yrs-10yrs). The tour is less than an hour, very informative, and kid-friendly. There's not a lot of walking and strollers are welcome. Of course, we really enjoyed the ice cream at the end!!!

It has been a few years since I toured the Blu Bell facility but it was very interesting and informative. I think I got more out of the tour than my kids did! And - we got to eat ice cream afterward. Very worthwhile.

Probably best for kids 10 and under but we still had fun. Cheap family tour, yummy ice cream and interesting for adults as well.

We found it interesting and fun with our kids to see the ice cream being made. It is remarkably simple. Then the best part is testing it at the end!

You walk into the front building. This is where the tour begins and the country store is located. We asked the ladies in the store if we could get a tour. The website asks that you call ahead to make a reservation. We were on our way out of town and forgot to call ahead. They were super nice and... More

Blue Bells tour and guest facilities was excellent, very good for children or grandchildren, generous on their "samples" of ice cream and they have a very good tour!
