Occupying 5,520 sq.ft. at Inorbit Mall, Wadgaon Sheri, Freeze has been divided into three zones — Arctic Circle, North Pole and Freeze Bar. Artic Circle is an ice-skating zone and can accommodate around 30-40 people at once. North Pole is a snow-themed zone and has been designed to recreate the experience of snowfall; it can accommodate 40-45 people. The third zone is the Freeze Bar which is a lounge offering various hot and cold drinks.

Ayushmaan Khurana of Vicky Donor fame took centerstage and introduced Freeze with a walkthrough at the property. He said, “This is a great chance to experience the weather of Shimla and Manali in this part of the country. People can unwind over lazy weekends doing ice-skating.”
