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

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.

Price apparently is flexible! Two of us paid $50.00 . Not sure about children rates. It's a reach... should be 1/2 that!
