Eilat Ice Space

Surprisingly,this first attraction allows you to go from scorching heat of Eilat to below-zero North Pole temperatures. If you desire a day away from the beach or you just want to escape from the scorching heat, go to Ice Space, where you will need to wear a winter coat, hat, warm socks, gloves and shoes – all of which are provided at the door. Only children age 3 and over are admitted.

On display are over 150 tons of ice sculpted into all kinds of fascinating ice sculptures including polar bears and penguins. Illuminated with beautiful lights in various hues, the sculptures look like translucent glass as the colors shine through them. There is an icy music room with frozen instruments, and you can take an exciting sled ride down an 18-meter (59-foot) ice slide. An underground cave will allow your family to warm up a bit from the frigid temperatures.
