“Interesting but overpriced ?”
Reviewed 2 March 2013

Having paid $60 for entry for two, maybe we expected more, yes it's nice the ice sculptures are interesting but with drinks $15 for a cocktail it's not cheap. Yes smashing your ice glass is fun, bu you cannot take a camera in as they take your photo another $8.
Good yes worth $100 for an hour ? personally not

“Had a great time”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

Grabbed a one day voucher which made this a very reasonable experience.

Service great and bought some photos the barman took as a moment. Nice and clean

Kids had a ball on the ice hockey table and got to smash their glasses on the chutes afterwards

Wuld recommend to all

“Awesome bar”
Reviewed 21 January 2013

The bartender was friendly, cocktails delicious (if not slightly expensive), but really it's a pretty good deal to get in, with a free drink included. Sculptures were awesome, especially the sculpture you could do shots out of! Loved the ice hockey table and the ability to smash your glass when you're finished too.

“Good Fun”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

Had a great time. Very chilly but they give you warm clothes. Cocktails are great, even hot drinks if you need. Challenge the barman at 'ice-hockey' if you dare haha!

“A Cold Reception?”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

Friendly and enthusiastic staff, who are full of warmth and laughter despite the - literally - cold atmosphere. Amazing ice sculptures with a little wear and tear, but that doesn't deteriorate from the wonder of the sights at all. And the cocktails and mocktails - amazing.
