“Why am I here?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

Rather a sanitized walk through of a factory without any feel for what you are viewing. At the end is a little shop and a really tiny, tiny sample bag of chips..maybe 5 in all inside. Weird and not all that interesting as to how much is produced and as to what you are actually viewing. Amusing but uniformative and chintzy at the end.

“If you have a couple extra minutes, stop in”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2012

You basically walk down a hallway, reading signs about making the potato chips along the way. There are windows looking into the factory but when we went there were no chips being made. You are not allowed to bring your camera inside so leave it in the car. It's free and the chips in the store are extremely fresh. It's nothing crazy but if you have ten or fifteen minutes, check it out. You know their chips are amazing!

“Hysterically bad, in fact!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2012

Yes, we knew it was a 15 min self guided tour. yes, we knew it was no big deal and we just wanted to stop by. In fact it is a short hallway with about 4 windows to look through and a gift shop at the end. We just did it to be silly and laughed the whole way through!! Don't go if you seriously want a tour. Go as something funny to do on a whim or don't go.

“Interesting to watch chips made through the widows”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2011

It is pretty interesting to walk down the window lined hallway and watch a potato become a chip. Do it if you have a couple of minutes, but it will not take more than 15 minutes to complete the tour...hint: if you have small children hold them up to the windows, the workers LOVE to wave and sometimes bring out a fresh bag of chips off the line for the kids.
