The Arctic Adventure will begin with a brief orientation at “basecamp” with your guide, Frostbite Fred. He will then lead you on the no-chills-just-thrills expedition through the “snowcapped” expo halls of the Owensboro Convention Center. When the “avalanche warning” sounds, follow Frostbite Fred into the “cool down zone” for even more fun and some hot cocoa!
All Arctic Adventure activities are included in the $15 entry fee for kids ages 3-17. For a limited time, use the coupon on the ad in the November issue of Owensboro Parent magazine to save $3 on each entry fee. Adults and those under 3 years of age are free.

For each Arctic Adventure ticket holder, the Owensboro Parks and Recreation Department is giving a FREE general admission skate pass for ice skating at the Edge Ice Center.
