Roaming the ice-themed park, visitors can closely view ice sculptures glistening under colorful lights, and also experience entertaining snow sports such as curling, ice bowling, tug-of-war on a snowy field, and sledge races.

Furthermore, events like a bonfire party and fireworks celebration will also be presented to visitors until March 20, 2017.

The ice funfair has used a total of 7,800 cubic meters of ice and 21,000 cubic meters of snow since its opening on Jan 6.
