In the leisure and hospitality industry, creating the perfect guest experience starts at design level, with both architects and designers selecting the best elements to bring this vision to life.

Fire & Ice

How do you create the warmth of a Christmas fire in a Magical Ice Kingdom without melting the stage? By using the Optimyst Cassette 500.

More than 200 awe-inspiring sculptures, created from 500 tonnes of ice and snow, filled Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland arctic environment that was kept at -10° C. The temperature was necessary to maintain the integrity of the ice sculptures, but the designers enhanced the visit with audio and theatrical lighting.

To operate successfully in such extreme conditions, Glen Dimplex Heating & Ventilation’s R&D team created a specially adapted version of the Optimyst 500 cassette for the challenge that the creators of the Winter Wonderland’s Magic Ice Kingdom faced.

“We were delighted to be working with Glen Dimplex Heating & Ventilation at the Magical Ice Kingdom. The Optimyst fires were a great addition and truly impressed our visitors across the festive season.”
