After reading excellent reviews online and seeing that they catered to my allergy, offering dairy free icecream, my other half and I headed here to see what all the fuss was about. It was amazing! They make the icecream up in front of you and they just used almond milk for me. You get a flavour of icecream and three... More

A large variety of ice cream (dairy free and vegan also available). You pick what you want in it or choose from a pre-made menu. All the servings are large and the ice cream is made in front of you using nitrogen.

Great selection of toppings. Freezing the cream with nitrogen is pretty awesome. Right across the street from Gatorland.

..so little room in my stomach. I love ice cream, and to be able to make your own choice of what goes in it, and watch it made right in front of you - yum. The taste is awesome, and the experience is fun.

We come to Florida every year for vacation (whether spring break or summer vacation) and always go to this place. The ice-cream is out of this world and is such a blast to watch him make. I would recommend this everyone to try at least once (you'll keep going back after you go once). Kids will love watching their own... More

If you come to Orlando and have a car you should visit the best ice cream spot in Florida. It is opposite gatorland so easy to find. The shop is looking a bit tired but the theatre and flavours are amazing. Worth the visit.

What a great find!!! You literally pick what kind of ice cream you want and if you are a fan of Mexican chocolate, you need to have them make it! Delicious!! The experience was as good as the ice cream....you watch cream, sugar and your flavors frozen right in front of your eyes! I'd go back again and again!!!

We have over 50 different things you can toss into your ice cream, including homemade caramel and fudge, so you can be the chef and create your own unique ice cream flavor, which we then freeze up before your eyes using liquid nitrogen. If you are a local and you'd like a fun place to take the family for an affordable night out, or a tourist looking for one of those unique world-class experiences that only Orlando can offer, then Private Island is the place for you!
