Day of ice

Wow, what an awesome way to understand and experience what it’s like in Antarctica! Really enjoyed meeting the Little Blue Penguins and the Huskys. The storm room and 4D theater were invigorating.

A MUST to visit

A great experience for all ages. Our grandchildren loved it. The staff are very friendly, helpful & ensure you don’t miss anything! The Cafe is pretty good too.

Great afternoon outing!

A great experience for families. We enjoyed the storm and ride on the Hägglund the most. Staff were pleasant and informative (especially the driver of the Hägglund!)

It’s all inside, so is awesome for those rainy days. We spent a couple of hours here but you could definitely do longer.

It was $119 for 2 adults, 1 child and 1 infant. A little expensive but if you have some time and don’t mind the cost definitely worth a visit while in Ōtautahi.

Poor pricy experience

Due to a technician creating an electrical fault there was a power cut during our visit. We were told by a lovely staff member that there would be a short delay to get things working again which was fine as they rescheduled the Hagglund ride to fill in time while we waited. We were also happy to watch the penguins for a while. However, after waiting over 50 minutes when I enquired if the 4D theatre was back online the lady at reception snapped back a incredibly short and rude reply. We were not offered a discount or refund nor kept informed on the continuing delay. I really feel that the $49 per adult ($98 for us two) was very pricy for the shortened experiences and rudeness. Had there been more communication and an offer of a refund it would have been a much happier experience.

Disappointed

We took a 15 yr old with us, he enjoyed it but felt it was aimed at much younger kids which was disappointing.
Not as good as it was 2 years ago unfortunately.

Not a bad way to pass a couple of hours

It’s a fun few hours out (especially for younger kids) and I’m very happy that our money went to helping out the penguins, but I do think it’s a bit overpriced. The penguins are cute and the Haaglund is just bonkers (maybe put a window in the back one so passengers can see where they’re going and what the obstacles are?) The arctic room is an interesting experience but in my personal opinion a little tame - add some of those arctic winds!
The huskies are always going to be a winner (especially as there was a pup when we went) and the owner is a great guy who’s happy to talk
If we’re honest some of it - especially the electronic stuff does need a bit of updating, but it’s a diverting couple of hours.
