It required 3000 hours of design, planning, rigging and derigging, with our team working through the night to meet deadlines. The build is not simply a conversion of an existing building – we are erect each destination as we go. After trucking the main components from Warwickshire to London, we created the Magical Ice Kingdom – an immersive walk-through experience, filled to the brim with ice and snow sculptures. Another success was Bar Ice, our Deep Sea Adventure – while our Explorers’ Rest was a stylish outdoor ski-lodge bar where visitors could sit and relax. It was another successful major project completed on time by Area 51.
