In a move to satisfy those with winter wanderlust, Snow City has come up with Singapore’s first Ice Hotel Gallery experience just in time for the school holidays and the festive season.
Opening its doors to the public on 3 November 2021, this new highlight will be certified as Singapore’s First Ice Hotel Gallery Experience by the Singapore Book of Records.
The permanent exhibit replaces the Arctic Snow Playground and features sculptures and furniture entirely carved out of ice.
The Ice Hotel Gallery experience transports visitors to the Arctic Circle without having to leave their home in the tropics.
Set in an environment that simulates ice hotels found in Finland, Norway or Sweden, with temperatures measuring at a frosty -5 degrees Celsius, this immersive attraction is an instant getaway to a Nordic wonderland.
Guests can lounge at the Ice Bar furnished with chairs, couches and tables fashioned out of blocks of ice and admire the intricate ice sculptures carved by local award-winning artisan Jeffrey Ng depicting scenes with animals, flora and fauna.
Norazani Shaiddin, General Manager of Snow City Singapore, said: “We are very proud to be unveiling Singapore’s first Ice Hotel Gallery experience at Snow City with the support of STB’s Experience Step-Up Fund. Taking the theme of our current exhibit further, this feature incorporates a different aspect of the Arctic we have not given prominence to before.
“Drawing inspiration from ice hotels in the Nordic region, we have also included local influences into its design. We hope this will be an exciting and fun new attraction for young families and even couples who are looking for unique locations to do photo shoots.”
Entry to the Ice Hotel Gallery experience is priced affordably from $17 onwards and includes access to the rest of Snow City’s features including the Snow Field and Arctic Snow Slide.
Guests can take things up a notch with an additional session at the target shooting gallery, a battle in a sub-zero shooting arena or an ice bumper car ride.
Tickets for all these activities can be purchased via https://ticket.snowcity.com.sg or Klook with SingaporeRediscovers Vouchers.
In addition, special admission bundles will be available for visits during the year-end school holidays, offering up to 20% discount with the purchase of tickets for two adults and two children.
Guests who purchase bundles will also receive a 10% discount on merchandise at the retail shop.
Snow City’s Ice Hotel Gallery experience is a special Christmas treat for the whole family.
