“fogetaboutit”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Not impressed at all, since this is just a come-on to buy a photo of an individual standing in a freezer. You can get a better experience by visiting a Birds-Eye vegetable freezer storage facility. Or for that matter an occasional drop in temperature in Wisconsin, during the winter months, which gives you at least the opportunity to purchase an hot toddy at the local bar.

“Go & Feel It.”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

I was not impressed. The marketing point of it this is to sell you a photo as you stood and froze your buns. It's a little freezer room with a window. It's cold!!! But I would not splurge for the photo.

“Just a Freezer in the Back of a Gift Shop”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

Not impressed. The whole point of it was to try to sell you a photo as you stood and shivered behind the glass. It's just a bare little freezer with a window -- that's it.

“It's cold, next”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

Just a little room in the back of the gift shop. You go in, you shiver a bit, you leave. Not one of those minutes that shape your life.

“Spend 30 seconds in the freezing cold and pay them for a picture to show all your friends!”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

More fun just to say you did it. They don't want you to take your own picture of yourself standing in front of a thermometer that shows how cold it is.
