Children learn IceMaking at IceCulturesby Diva Kerri Gingerich

Although I wasn’t always thrifty, I am becoming more and more so the older I get and when I first heard about the new, family-focused ice plant tour put on by Iceculture in Hensall my immediate reaction was, “that sounds cool but $14 per person is a lot of money.”

Long story, short, I decided to check it out and am so glad I did – the tour was professional, educational and well worth the money (be sure to check out the video of me in the ice playground)!

The plant tour itself lasted about 45 minutes and then there was playtime in the ice playground.  The tour is very kid-friendly and includes: learning how crystal clear ice is manufactured, watching a carving demonstration, a tour of an ice lounge, and of course, the opportunity to slide down a 50ft ice slide.   (See on YouTube here)

If you’ve never had a tour of the plant and are looking for something fun to do with the kids this week, I would definitely recommend checking this out.

The tours started March 9th and are running daily, through March 17th.  Tours must be booked in advance.  Cost is $14 per person with special group rates available.
