'Antarctica' the Snow and Ice experience is some really ‘cool’ fun with icy slides, a 'polar plunge' ice water challenge, a cave and an Antarctic storm! Get your adrenalin pumping with an exciting ride on the all-terrain, amphibious Hagglund and experience a magical simulated Antarctic Cruise in the 4D Extreme Theatre!
