Enter a cold room where you can experience what it is like at the Antarctic. The temperature in this room starts from a pretty "warm" temperature of minus 5°C. Turn on the wind-chill machine and all hell breaks loose. The temperature suddenly dips to minus 18°C. That's crazy, but do try it.

Address: by the Christchurch Airport
Directions: Just follow the boot prints from the Christchurch Airport. You'll be glad you did. OK, now I sound like and advertisement. OK, maybe I should stop editorializing.
