MINUS5º ICEBAR AT MANDALAY BAY, THE VENETIAN RESORT® LAS VEGAS ANNOUNCES NEW ICE CONSTRUCTION BEGINNING FEBRUARY 27
New Themes Include Japanese Samurai Swords, Medieval Fire + Ice Fantasy
LAS VEGAS (February 2023) – New ice construction inside Minus5º ICEBAR at Mandalay Bay and The Venetian Resort® Las Vegas will begin on February 27. When completed on March 3, the attractions will feature new ice displays throughout, including an all-new Japanese samurai sword display at Mandalay Bay and a medieval fire and ice fantasy display at The Venetian Resort.
The new displays will be created by master ice carvers Dan “Hollywood” Rebholz and Austin Greenleaf. With more than 38 years of experience, Rebholz has won multiple international ice carving championship titles. In addition, he was also part of the Olympic ice carving team in 2002 and 2006. His work has been featured on the Discovery Channel and Food Network.
Greenleaf has also carved ice sculptures for monumental events, including Minnesota Vikings games and the Super Bowl. He now serves as Minus5º ICEBAR’s in-house executive ice sculptor where he assists in designing and executing the rotating ice displays at the three Las Vegas locations.
New blocks of ice will be used in the construction, and each ice block weighs 250 pounds, requiring four men to lift and hoist it into place. Prior to arriving in Las Vegas, the ice was created by utilizing a special process that removes all air bubbles, resulting in the clearest ice possible.
“Dan and Austin are two of the best ice carvers in the country,” said Noel Bowman, owner, Minus5º ICEBAR. “They are dedicated to putting their creativity and talents together to make world-renowned ice sculptures for our guests to enjoy.”
The new construction represents part of Minus5º ICEBAR’s quarterly Staying COOL re-theming program to keep the experience fresh for guests.
Media interested in taking photos or videos of the new ice displays are recommended to visit after March 1. Media must email Vanessa Thill at email@example.com and all photo and video shoots must be scheduled in advance.
