we were told not to water our trees this fall and barge traffic is affected by low water in the Mississippi, but THE MALL can build an ice palace with 4 million gallons of water??

"Tickets: $10 adults, $5 ages 3-12; $35 family four-pack (two adults, two children)." Well, that's a heck of deal for the family pack. Oh, it's an error on the Strib site I'm shocked (link says $25 for a family 4-pack)

The Winter Carnival Ice Palaces were better. This looks like something that dripped off a roof. What a joke!

Check out the Winter Carnival ice castle from 1992. It was when the Super Bowl was playyed here and it was MUCH more impressive than this thing.

I drove by it yesterday. It was sort of cool. Doesn't compare to the Winter Carnival Ice Palace. I overheard visitors at the MOA who'd never seen snow before. They were excited. Generated some jobs.

Went tonight to see it. Seems to be not done yet. Don't go for another couple of weeks. It might be ready then. I asked on the way out if this is what it was supposed to be like, since it didn't match the description here in the Star Trib in any way. They said, "oh, it's a work in progress" and, "it's an evolving work", but didn't offer to give me my money back.

It's clear that the people behind this creation have lost touch with reality. How do they justify wasting FOUR MILLION gallons of water in a D-R-O-U-G-H-T???

The four million gallons of water will melt and run through the storm drains and find its way to the Minnesota River. Temporary storage of water in ice form. Not too excited about having to pay. Typical MOA, make money off of the tourists.
