The clock counts down to the end of Minus5 Ice Experience at the Monte Carlo. The resort’s $500 million renovation into the Park MGM and NoMad Las Vegas removes the nightlife experience at the resort to make way for Eataly, opening at the front of the rebranded resort in late 2018.

“After seven cool and exciting years, Minus5 Ice Experience is closing its doors at Monte Carlo,” Minus5 president Noel Bowman tells Eater Vegas. “This ice palace has seen some amazing times and we’re sad to see it go but encourage our guests to visit one of our other two locations at the Shoppes at Mandalay Bay and inside the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian.”

The icy chambers close on Sunday, Oct. 29, when the clock strikes midnight.

Never fear the fate of the 80 tons of Canadian ice that make up this space. Some of the sculptures find a new home at the experience’s other locations at Mandalay Place and the Grand Canal Shoppes.

In the meantime, customers can still touch and explore the handcrafted ice sculptures and ice architecture anytime between 11 a.m. and midnight in the next two days.

Already Yusho, Andre’s, Hit Lounge, BLVD Creamery, D.vino, Dragon Noodle Co., Brand Steakhouse, The Buffet at Monte Carlo, and The Pub at Monte Carlo closed to make way for the changes, which include a 40,000-square-foot Eataly, a NoMad Hotel with the three-meal Primrose anchoring the bottom, Bavette’s Steakhouse, and a NoMad restaurant.
