Visitor Tips and News About The Turkey Hill Experience
An 80-year-old Pennsylvania ice cream manufacturer has turned a gutted and abandoned silk mill into an interactive frozen dairy "experience." No ice cream is made at the Experience, but Turkey Hill is betting that you won't care. The Experience was designed by the same company that built The Hershey Story a few miles up the road. Visitors get to walk through a giant tub of ice cream, stand in a simulated deep freeze, flush out the pipes in a fake factory, and milk one of several robotic cows. Turkey Hill's president explained the motivation behind creating the Experience in a company press release: "We think as we tell our story, people will become even more in love with our products."[RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 06/11/2011]
