  • Smaller than I was hoping for but still interesting to see. Expect an hour total. The host was friendly and did a quick carving at the end of the show. They had coats on hand for visitors that didn't come in with parkas.
  • Its kind of a guided tour. you start on the hour watching a video, then you get free time to interact with some ice sculptures, then there is a ice carving demo. My favorite part is the sled run, where you get to sled down an ice chute.
  • Good show. Well worth the money. + all of the photos at the end of the show were great to take pictures with.
  • Not too busy. Very friendly atmosphere ice sculptures and beautifully presented northern lights presentation.
  • Don't expect a ton of sculptures, but what they do have will be fun. There is a film about the ice sculpture competition that is held there every year.
