We took the kids to eat ice cream and play when they needed to get out of the house but it was too cold to do anything outside. Service was great, the ice cream was well worth the money and the kids loved playing in the large play area. The play land was large, very clean and well kept.

They don't even make their ice cream in Columbus any more, much less at this "factory" so the factory tour is a fake. Basically you sit for a few minutes for a series of videos showing how they make their ice cream (in Cincinnati, no less) then walk past old equipment with signs telling you about the equipment you are looking at. Lastly, you watch a bored girl make the wheels (ice cream cake) through a window. She didn't even look up at us or smile. It was worth every penny we spent for the tour - which was free.

After the tour, you can buy some of their ice cream. I like the quality of it and the amount of chocolate chip pieces but that's a different story.

it was just so so and overpriced. There was nothing special abotu this whatsoever. And, when you live in central ohio and in the presence of going to the UDF (united dairy farmer) places and can get GREAT ice cream at reasonable prices, why wouldn't you go to those places?

On our trip to Ohio we check trip advisor and saw this was rated so highly so we drove twenty minutes to this ice cream factory. It was not what we were expecting... We basically just went in bought two pints of ice cream (which were very good) and left... We looked around but the site makes the "tour" seem so much more exciting.. Good ice cream but that's all
