Ice Experience is coming to Sky Pier at The Hive entertainment complex on Grand Parade, featuring -20℃ temperatures and an adventure for all the family.

Following the closure of the The Ice Experience in London, the attraction will be the only one of its kind in the UK.

The two themed bars will feature an ice bar itself and then a ski chalet-themed holding bar, where families can prepare to go on a search for the Skegness Yetti..

The Ice Bar in London is closed, meaning the attraction at Skegness could be the only one in the UK.

It will bring the total investment at the complex to £4.5 million, will 11 bars over five floors.

Richard Hutchinson, manager of the complex, said it was disappointing Covid-19 restrictions will mean the opening of the new attraction has had to be delayed.

"We are really excited about the new bars and disappointed we will have to delay the opening until later in the year," said Richard.

"When we open we are likely to be the only one in the UK with the closure of London and the uncertainty around the one at Glasgow which is closed now.

"Ours will be different because rather than just being an ice bar we are turning it into an experience for all the family during the day.

"They will go into the ski lounge and then go on a guided tour in search of the Skegness Yetti. before entering the ice bar itself.

"Covid restrictions allowing, coats and hats will be provided so people don't have to worry about it being too cold in their summer clothes.

"We were hoping to open an Easter, but unfortunately it looks like it will be later in the year now."

One open, tickets for the attraction will be available to book online.
