Interesting place. Ice sculptures were impressive, slide was fun, free shot was nice. They give you a large, warm jacket but with flip flops your toes do get cold. Would recommend as a pit-stop, but if you don't have the time - don't force it.

Have to visit the Ice bar at least one. Loved the ice sculptures. Interesting displays made of ice. Great free shot. It's not a place you can spend a lot of time in unless you enjoy the cold. Really enjoyed the free shot in the ice shot glass.

The front room where you don your parkas isn't much but you're not there to see that anyway. The ice sculptures are fantastic and knowing they change about 4 times a year means you can go back and see something new each time. The bar is limited but the ice will chill the air making you forget all about the heat that drove you in...

Broken ice everywhere. Slippery ice on the floor. Poor selection of alcohol (approx 10 bottles). No souvenir shot glass with paid admission. Free shot was in small plastic container and it was nasty flavored rum. 25 bucks for entry. There was no one else in there. Disappointing waste of money.

The idea was cool, but at the time of our visit, we could see that some of the sculptures were already worn down.

Says there is happy hour at the bar in the evening in the sign outside the sho. We walked in and the guy was monotone and did $25 to see ice sculptures and we inquired about coming back in the evening to see the sculpture and hang at the ice bar during happy hour he said no I am closing at 3. I only do happy hour in season or if there is a cruise boat.

This place is really unique, from the ice sculptures to the slide it is really neat place.
Plus you get a shot with your ticket. Wes was great to deal with. Needless to say it is cold
in there, but you will enjoy the visit.

Thank you very much for your visit and feedback! Wes says hi and hope to welcome you back sometime. The exhibit changes yearly, so there will always be new sculptures to look at!

Warm Regards

This was my first time in an ice bar!!! This place is superb. They provide jackets and gloves and then you go inside where its 23F. There are beautiful ice sculptures. There is a legit bar inside and they give 1 shot of cruzan rum for for free with the ticket. This activity can be definitely squeezed in your itinerary. Shouldn't take more that 45 mins unless you plan to get drunk there. Also it closes at 3 (yeah its a day time activity!!!!)

The ice sculptures were beautiful,each one with a different theme. My husband and I didn't quite know what to expect when we booked the excursion, and we didn't stay very long, but we were glad we went.

Wife and two teens did this while I had a couple beers around the corner. Said it was neat. Worker at desk was super friendly and enjoyed talking to him. Glad they went.
