Due to temperature rise and safety concerns, the hugely popular Harbin Ice and Snow World dropped its curtain on Thursday evening.

Since opening on December 19, 2023, the winter wonderland has drawn record-breaking visitor numbers from around the country and the world, with around 30,000 visitors to the park every day, nearly double pre-pandemic records.

The park, which covers more than 816,600 square meters, features a slew of gigantic ice and snow sculptures. It was also recently named the largest temporary ice and snow theme park in the world by Guinness World Records.

Crowded with people on the last opening day, both adults and children were immersed in a joyful atmosphere. Right before closing, the saxophone tune of "Going Home" gently echoed in the park, with many tourists lingering around. Children were spotted rushing to the gate of the giant ice slide, anxiously asking, “Do we have time for one more round?”
