Minus5 Ice Experience, the company that launched America’s first ice experience, just debuted its third Las Vegas location inside the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian. Dubbed the “coolest” venue in Las Vegas, the all-new location features the spirit of vintage Las Vegas, a beach-inspired paradise, and more, allowing guests to celebrate the summer season and beat the heat on the Las Vegas Strip.

This newest location of Minus5 Ice Experience features a 1,500 square-foot ice attraction made with more than 100 tons of 100 percent pure Canadian ice, complete with a walk-up warm bar — totaling 3,000 square feet. Named for its constant frosty temperature of minus five degrees (23 degrees Fahrenheit), guests are able to touch, feel and explore handcrafted ice sculptures and architecture, creating the ultimate winter wonderland experience, available 365 days per year.

Everything from the walls to the benches, sculptures to chandeliers is made from ice. Minus5 Ice Experience has partnered with Blue Chair Bay Rum created by country singer Kenny Chesney to create a one-of-a-kind Surf Shack, made completely of ice. Featuring an eclectic mix of palm trees, beach chairs, surf boards and more, guests can ride the ice-wave and sit on the oversized Adirondack chair, for the ultimate beach-inspired experience in the desert. Plus, guests can enjoy select signature cocktails made with Blue Chair Bay Rum served in coconut-style ice glasses.

The new location also transports guests to the 1950s with vintage Las Vegas flair including an ice-made electric chair, police line-up wall, and figures inspired by Sin City icons such as Rat Pack performers and showgirls. In addition, guests can enjoy hand-carved ice sculptures that pay tribute to the surrounding Las Vegas areas such as Joshua Tree and Arches National Parks, the gondola rides at the Venetian, and of course, the historic “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign.
