Only went into the ice bar - didn't even see a maze or slot machines. It was fun to go in for a little bit and drink our beer - yes I agree the beer is a little expensive. You have a choice of parkas...More

It looks nothing like what the website shows; those pictures are from *before* it even opened. What is *actually* is is a very dirty, very empty, walk in freezer where you can order small craft beers through a tiny window for a whopping $9 after...More

This is such a fun and unique place to visit. If you haven't been to an ice bar, you are in for a treat. After putting on your parka and gloves which are provided with your entry fee, you enter an enchanted room where everything...More

This was a cool place - really nice concept and the people were super nice. The ice bar and various games (ice shuffle board anyone) were neat. The place isn't very large. There weren't many people when we were there but I could imagine that...More
