    Freezing conditions.. Antarctic Centre

    by rozehill Written May 3, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Visitor Centre International Antarctic Centre allows you to experience real Antarctic conditions with Audiovisual and Touch Screen technology. Feel "genuine" Antarctic wind chill or slide down a snow slope in the real Snow & Ice Experience. You can even dress up in real Antarctic Clothing and see live fish and sea spiders from Antarctica!

    Fondest memory: Try the new Antarctic Hägglund Ride, a 'Behind the Scenes' tour of Christchurch's Antarctic Campus. During the ride passengers visit the US Antarctic Programme's Clothing Warehouse, Antarctic Departure Terminal and see the Antarctic Aircraft Apron. They then take visitors over an adventure course to experience the amazing all-terrain abilities of the Hägglund. Dare to drive over the 'Crevasse' and watch in amazement as it swims through water! Bookings for the ride are recommended
