Jerusalem's Ice City festival closed down on Monday as sculptures were melting due a technical failure.
long line of festival goers stood outside the venue, adjoining
Jerusalem’s Old Train Station, enraged because they had paid for tickets
and had not been informed that the attraction was closed. People came
to Jerusalem from all over the country, as far as Dimona and Eilat.
ticket-seller company Bimot told customers they could return the
following week, however, they were unsatisfied with this response since
they were due to return to work and school following the Passover
holiday. The company also offered reimbursement.
People who had
turned up at the melting Ice City were angry about having wasting a day
and getting babysitters, and were demanding to be able to return the
next day to enjoy the event free of charge.
Ice City staff later announced that Monday's visitors would be able to return the following day.Jpost.com staff contributed to this report
