The Turkey Hill Experience is a fun place where you get to see a bit of the Turkey Hill history and indulge in a little fun. The kids and adults alike can take part in making their own flavor and it will then be emailed direct to your email address. Sample the many flavors of ice cream made by Turkey hill and at the end you can purchase items in their store. Fun for the entire family.

Made online reservations for the Turkey Hill Experience and for an additional charge, the Tasting Lab, where you can make and create your own flavor of ice cream, design your own ice cream container and star in your own ice cream commercial. If you are a military veteran, either active or retired, your admission to the Turkey Hill Experience is FREE and only a small additional charge for the Tasting Lab. As you enter the Turkey Hill Experience, you learn about the development of the Turkey Hill brand, participate in some interactive exhibits and get to taste as much Turkey Hill Ice Cream and Iced Tea products as you want. We then went to the Tasting Lab, where we created our own flavor of ice cream and were able to perfect it until we were satisfied with its flavor and consistency. We then were able to create our own personalized commercial, touting our newly created flavor. The finished commercial was then sent to our e-mail address for us to enjoy at a later date. Even had a souvenir photo taken. The tour and tasting were very enjoyable and well worth the visit. Had a great time.

We went to the Turkey Hill Experience not expecting much after reading some of the reviews. Instead we were pleasantly surprised! We got there at 10:00am and only left at 1:00pm because we had other plans. It wasn't very crowded so we could see everything. Endless samples of ice cream and tea/lemonade! Be sure to do the creation lab. That was fun! It's a bit melty but we still enjoyed it. The employees were very nice & helpful. There is a gigantic ice cream container you can crawl in for pics. I would recommend going with children. My 7 year old liked making her own ice cream & the 3 year old wouldn't leave the slide. We definitely plan to return.

Pleasant for adults with children. Lots of fun for kids. We went during a weekday, so no crowd problem. Granddaughter had LOTS of fun!

Turkey Hill employees are very nice. This is a go at your own pace mooseaum. You get to taste ice cream and turkey hill beverages. We got to make our own ice cream, packaging and commercial. Plenty of photo opportunities. It's an enjoyable visit.
