Overview

Be absorbed into a world crafted purely of ICE architecture! Everything from the walls and furniture, to the bar and intricately hand carved statues are all made from crystal clear ICE. Even our infamous cocktails are served in glasses made entirely out of ICE! Dress up like an eskimo and explore over 18 tonnes of ice in -5 degrees and colder. A family experience you will never forget, a pre dinner chilly cocktail, or a 'cool' start to a lively night on the town. Can you handle the THRILL OF THE CHILL?
