Hoth, The Ice Planet : The Experience

Ever wanted to visit Hoth? Y'know... the ice planet from Empire Strikes Back?. Well now you can... sorta.

Minus 5 Ice Lounge has opened at Mandalay Bay. This isn't your standard Star Wars cantina though... at Minus 5 everything is made of ice - walls, tables, bar, glasses... the whole schmear. Don't worry, you won't get frostbite, they supply booties, gloves and a parka for you to slip over your beach wear.

For those of us who live in places where the only ice we see floats in our drinks, this is awesome. For those of us who scrape a half-inch of ice off the window of the car every morning, this probably isn't so awesome. Being of the former who used to be the latter and sorta misses it a little... this is awesome.

Here's a promo video from the Sydney Australia location.

That looks awesome. That place is going to be packed though all the time I bet. I've seen these on TV and the IceHotels that they build every year up in Norway, those are cool

I'm sure that will be great.... Until winter. I know it doesn't snow all that often in Vegas, but it does get pretty damn cold. How many people are going to head in there in January?

OK, January would be a bad example since AVN is in town and it would be a good place to see some "high beams".
