The ice sculptures are amazing, the bar area and slide were so fun and the ice carvings were very unique. Such a great... More

It is a room with about a dozen ice sculptures. The price, $22 a person, is a bit high for what it is. You do get a rum shot at the ice bar inside and we received a shot glass at the end as well. The coats are a bit bulky and hard to maneuver to take pictures. We are... More

The Staff is very receptive to be your family's photographer and happy to point out the best spots for lighting so you... More

If they offered a better local rate year round they would get lots of families with young kids to go. There is limited things to do for kids on this island. The tourist price is over $20.... yikes! Won't be taking stateside visitors here any time soon!
