This is one of those once in a lifetime type of experiences. It was an amazing time despite the -20C night. Staying out in the hot tub and sauna while my beard was freezing before my eyes was a blast! Helps that there was a full moon to make my engagement the most memorable time!

The lighting was really well done, with amazing carvings, and some great themed rooms.
Highly recommend taking their "how to sleep through the night" course if you haven't before! Really helped us stay warm and enjoy our night stay.

I would hope that people realize it is only a one night stay kind of deal, nothing more than a fun experience! Highly recommended at least once!
