Always a fun time. Plus you can't beat the colossal peanut butter shake - my favorite! We liked that we got in right away - went about 6:30 pm. In past lines can get a bit long especially after show next door at Showplace...

If you have a couple days & figure ice cream will make an appearance then you should take the friends & family to Showcase. The troupes from Surflight Theater put on a great show & get all involved! The ice cream is good too!

Ice cream was very good, staff energetic, helpful and friendly. The place was so crowded though, that we were finished with our ice cream, while people in the back were still ordering. Would have been nicer in a smaller venue, because the singing for your...More

Since 1976, New Jersey's original singing ice cream parlour featuring the "Waitri" who serve you theatrical themed sundaes all while singing jingles, songs, dances that correspond with each theme. You might even have to get up and sing for your ice cream! Very interactive, fun for the whole family!
