I was the only person there at 6pm, I stayed about 20 minutes and no one else came in. Not worth the admission fee of approx. £18 to view a few ice sculptures and drink a small fruity wine concoction.

It's a funny place, very cold (minus 5) but you are equiped with a poncho stuffed. It's a little bit expensive but you live this experience only once.

Magic Ice has a little bar in it and lots of Ice Sculptures. You would only stay in here about 20/30 mins max. I think both are possibly the same thing.
