[ Media Invite ]
We were invited to 2 Degree Ice Art last Fri.
Temperature at 2 Degree Ice Art is kept at a freezing -15 Degrees !
Gloves and Jackets are a must. Every ticket purchased comes with a pair of gloves, and you can rent the jacket at $5 each.
Normally, these outfits will be more suitable for colder climate, maybe Harbin.
Well 2 Degree Ice Art has brought Winter to Singapore from now till May 2014.
We have not been to cold countries before, so the whole experience was surreal. We can see our breathe when we exhale. Walking along with the thick jackets feel weird, especially when Boon Xin’s jacket can almost touch the floor haha (too cute).
In this cold -15 Degrees, it is easy to forget we are still in tropical humid Singapore. The thermostat must measure 30 degrees outside the wall !
“Welcome to our Winter Wonderland“.
We do not need 15 minutes before we can feel the chill sneaking into our jacket and we start rubbing our palms. Fortunately, active kids will stay warm with constant running and jumping.
Parents need not worry about them slipping, as the whole premise is carpeted.
Slipping and sliding at the children’s playground is part of the Fun :p
We hope that boy (From Belgium) realised he should not pee outdoor in such cold weather as his urine might freeze ? Some interesting reading here.
Video : Do check out our sliding fun on this Video clip.
Additional info :
1) Camera equipment will definitely be affected by condensation, read here for some protection measures. Unless you stay at the holding area longer (maybe a few hours), it is hard to prevent condensation due to the big contrast in temperature (-15 and 30 degrees)
2) Our gloved fingers struggle to press the shutter or camera button on both our camera and smartphones
We would like to thanks 2 Degree Ice Art for the cool invitation. More cold photos from our adventure has been uploaded on our Fanpage album.
