WHAT DOES THE $200 FOOD AND BEVERAGE MINIMUM ENTAIL?
Every booking includes a private igloo for up to 8 guests for 2 hours, a keepsake glass for each person to take home, hot chocolate, plus select food and drink packages of your choice. That $200 breaks down to just $25 per person when split between 8. Tax and 20% service fee will be added to all final bills.
WHAT GLASSWARE DO I GET TO CHOOSE FROM?
Each person in your party will receive 1 glass of their choice. 1 glass per person attending the Igloo Party:
- 16oz Tall-Boy Can Glass
- 10oz Pub Glass
- 16oz Red Camper Mug
- 16oz Blue & Green Rustic Mug
HOW LONG DOES AN IGLOO RENTAL LAST FOR?
Each rental lasts 2 hours. We ask that your party arrive 10 minutes early to check-in prior to your reserved time. This will give you the full amount of time in your igloo. We prefer that your entire party arrive before seating your igloo. This allows us to seat you all at once and limit the number of times the door to your igloo will need to be opened, thus keeping you and the igloo warmer for longer.
WHAT HAPPENS IF OUR PARTY SHOWS UP LATE?
If your party shows up late for your reservation, we cannot extend the length of your rental. The igloos are in high demand and are generally booked back-to-back to allow as many guests to enjoy them as possible. As an example, if you show up 30 minutes late, your rental would be for 1 hour and 30 minutes instead of 2 hours. Partial refunds will NOT be issued for parties arriving late.
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN FIT IN EACH IGLOO?
Each igloo seats up to 8 guests. It is soft patio, lounge-style seating, and there is a coffee table provided for guests to sit around. It is set up for sitting together, sharing food and drink, spending time with each other, away from everyone in your own little bubble….err, igloo!
WHAT IF WE ONLY HAVE 4 PEOPLE, DO WE PAY HALF-PRICE?
Sorry, every igloo rental and package is the same price regardless of the size of your party. If your party is smaller than 8, we’d suggest inviting more friends.
ARE THERE AGE LIMITS FOR THE IGLOOS?
There is no age limit.
IS SMOKING ALLOWED IN THE IGLOOS?
No. Any guests found smoking, vaping, or the like will be asked to leave immediately along with their entire party, with no refund granted. Open flames of any kind are not allowed on the patio whatsoever.
ARE THE IGLOOS HEATED? HOW SHOULD I DRESS?
They are “heated,” but you will be sitting on an outdoor patio, in the Winter months in Iowa, separated from the cold winter by a thin “igloo” membrane. Each igloo includes a small, electric heater that will take the edge off of the chill, but please come dressed for a winter activity. It may take a bit of time after the door is opened to reheat your igloo. The igloos also include small windows for ventilation if desired. Please come dressed in hats, gloves, and a few layers that you can adjust to your own individual comfort level. Feel free to bring a blanket too, if you’d like. Any heater moved during your stay may result in a charge for damage to the shell or frame. If you require assistance with your heating unit, please ask a Barn Town employee for assistance.
ARE THE IGLOOS CLEANED IN BETWEEN EACH USE?
Yes! Every igloo contains a medical grade air purifier inside, and we will clean, sanitize and air out each Igloo in between each use.
WILL THE IGLOOS EVER CLOSE FOR INCLEMENT WEATHER?
In the case of extreme cold, blizzard, or dangerous icy conditions, we may need to cancel reservations to ensure safety and your comfort level. In these cases, you will be notified via email about an option to reschedule your booking or receive a complete refund. We will make every attempt to make the cancellations well in advance of your reserved time but reserve the right to make cancellations in the case of emergency weather conditions at any time.
ARE PETS ALLOWED IN THE IGLOOS?
Sorry, you’ll need to leave your furry friends at home. Pets are not allowed in the igloos.
WHAT HAPPENS IF WE DAMAGE THE IGLOO?
The igloos are strong, engineered structures that are designed to withstand 50+ mph winds and 90+ pounds of static snow load. That being said, they are constructed of lightweight materials that can be damaged by impact, heat, or puncture. We ask that you take precaution when moving in the igloos and refrain from touching the walls or grabbing the frame. The igloos are inspected and cleaned after every party, and a fee may be added should any evidence of damage or stolen items are noticed after your visit.
CAN I BRING MY OWN MUSIC?
For the enjoyment of the guests in neighboring igloos, we request that you do not add your own soundtrack to the experience.
WHAT IS THE RESTROOM SITUATION?
All igloos are welcome to use the indoor restrooms inside of the taproom at Barn Town. We’d recommend using the facilities before getting seated in your igloo to avoid unnecessary opening of your door.
WHAT IS THERE TO DO INSIDE THE IGLOOS?
With the igloos having a 12-foot diameter, your party should be composed of the type of people who aren’t too weirded out inside a full elevator. There will be a lot of sitting around in a circle watching other people eat and drink, so some pleasant conversation would be a great next step. Stay off of your phones, and enjoy each other’s company! You could also bring a game to play, but make sure it’s a game that you don’t need table space for, or standing and moving around for.
