“Great for kids”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Interesting learning the history, hilarious watching the kids "milk a cow", guessing how many lids are in a sealed floor to ceiling stack, and of course the create your own (virtual) flavor plus designing your own packaging was a lot of fun for our kids. (there's also the option to make your own commercial.) We were there on "Sunday Sundae" (check the website for daily specialties), so we tried different flavors and made our own sundaes. That being said, the admission prices are too high, esp. for adults. I think it came to ~$32 for the 4 of us.

“Nice visit”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

A lot of things to do, the kids enjoyed themselves, everything very clean and well kept, friendly and helpful staff, yummy ice cream. Donna and Fred very helpful with smiling faces. Only issue is that I think it is a bit high priced for admission. Can cost a lot for a family.

We enjoyed going thru the "experience", tasting the ice cream and tea and creating our virtual ice cream. There is a ball pit that my youngest son really enjoyed.

“Kids will love it”
Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

This is a great rainy day visit. The kids loved milking the fake cows, mixing different cents and learning how ice cream is made. Both adults and kids will enjoy the free ice cream and iced tea.

“Great for kids!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This place was fun. We brought my 3 year old and she had fun. I'm glad she was free though, as I couldn't see spending over $30 for admission. It's probably geared more for kids 5 and up. The create your own ice cream was great, we did the ice cream, packaging and video and it was cute. It was great to get "free" samples of ice cream and iced tea as well. We went back for a few different flavors so we got our money's worth!

Thank you for visiting the Turkey Hill Experience. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the unlimited free samples. If you would like to give me your CYO code and the date of your visit I would be more than happy to send you a DVD of your daughters commercial. Enjoy your day. Rebecca Carroll
