Visitor Tips and News About Igloo City - Giant Igloo-Shaped Building
The Igloo was no longer padlocked when we were there in June, but you take your life in your hands if you go inside. Vandals have had a great time and it's a huge mess. However, even though it was raining quite hard, people still pull off the highway to have their pictures taken in front of the Igloo.
For a building that never opened or did business, it's still a tourist attraction.[Hanna Huibers, 10/05/2010]
While traveling to Alaska by motorcycle we couldn't help but stop at this landmark located right on the George Parks Highway. We found out from locals that the "Hotel" has been built for many years, perhaps in the 70's, and has never been open because of not meeting building codes. Different individuals have owned it and yet no one has been able to open it. It is currently padlocked and becoming dilapidated. The RV park adjoining it is also closed and buildings and pumps are gone, leaving only "The Igloo"[Larry Klink, 09/10/2009]
The attraction, Igloo City, is sadly no longer open. The Igloo is boarded up, the gas pumps are missing, and one of the dormer windows has started to collapse in.[Kenton Henry, 06/01/2007]
The 4-story igloo building. I used to live 3 miles from the Igloo -- now live about 100 from there.[DeVonne Koppenberg, 03/20/2005]
