My husband and I love to try new things. We are huge on traveling and finding unusual experiences. When my mom asked what we wanted for Christmas, I wasn’t really sure. That is until an ad popped up on my Facebook for the Art of Ice Cream Experience in Scottsdale. I have been dying to visit The Museum of Ice Cream but it is impossible to get tickets. I know they aren’t affiliated, but I figured this would be as close as I would get.
Basically, The Art of Ice Cream is a large art exhibit containing 8 different ice cream themed rooms. They are interactive and offer plenty of fun photo ops. There are also different ice cream treats. Before you enter The Freezer, there are chocolate bonbons. They were delicious!
As you enter the various rooms, you will be offered Otter Pops, mini milkshakes and and an ice cream cone or cup of your choice. As you leave there is also a giant bowl of candy.
Beyond the edible treats, there are some interactive areas as well. You can swim in a ball pit, box in the ice cream ring or play for the Phoenix Sundaes. I won’t spoil the whole thing for you, but here are a few more pictures.
Tickets run $25 a piece and can be purchased directly from the website here. When you purchase your tickets you will just pick a date and time you want to go and it looks like the exhibit runs through the 9th of March. I have tried to find discount tickets but have yet to come across any.
Honestly, while it was fun, I do not think this event is for everyone. I think the people who would enjoy this the most, for the price, are bloggers or people just wanting to take unique pictures. For those who just want to look at the exhibits and eat sweet treats, it is a little over priced. However, if you can find discount tickets for $10-$15 a piece then I think it would be worth it.
What do you think, will you be giving this event a try?
