Pelicans is a favorite for the whole family. The product is great and also the environment that they have set up is very inviting and child friendly...makes me feel like a big kid...the employees are amazing they are always smiling and love what they do..and if they dont they are great actors...they have new menu items I had the cake smash is was delicious and I plan to going at least 3 times a week...

Great place to cool off and hang out. There is ring toss, corn hole, big jenga style blocks, huge connect 4 game, hoola hoops, dart board. Over 100 flavors to choose from and you can mix flavors or add extras if you want!

Great place to go have a cool treat. Play area for the kids. Great prices. Menu options are great. They even have an option for a doggie treat snoball.

Try something sour with sweetened condensed milk. You won't be disappointed. Promise.
Personal favorite: sour tsunami w/sweetened condensed milk.

Pelican snowball is the perfect place for families with a wide range of ages included. Of course, everyone (at every age) loves a delicious pelican snowball. The deal, though, is that there are all kinds of games in the little play area ...including bag toss and ring toss. There's also a giant connect 4 machine for the adults if they want to be entertained. Everyone comes here! Youu will see every race, Creed, color and age when you visit. And that's another thing that's so great about it...the kind of folks who don't want to be in a crowd of people who aren't just like them don't attend pelican snowball. Amen.

I really like this location in Durham because of the extra different flavors they offered. They also had plenty of space for seating and games for the kids.

Love this place . Affordable prices , always good customer services , parking is o.k . They offer pelican bucks so if you plan on buying throughout the summer it's a good idea to get them.

Taste is great, price is good. Place is decent and staff is nice. Location straight at Roxboro street is not really good. However, if you are close, e.g. visiting Life and Science Museum, check out the snoballs. Taste is worth it.

Really good shaved ice with a big choicr of flavors and staff seems to be nice. I like the idea of there games and stuff but I personally think some of it can be sketchy to touch because it stinks or is dirty. I would recommend this place though.

In the heat of the night there is nothing like a nice cool treat... Pelican's SnoBalls 🍧 answer the call. I always get the clear syrup with a scoop of ice-cream in the middle of mine... simply delish! You can seat and unwind, eat with a piece of mind while children play and delight in theirs eat too.

This place is pretty cool, it was our first time going. It is very close to the life and science museum which is where we came from. It was a great pick-me-up after a long day with kids. They have ice cream flavored shaved ice 😋 I'm not a fruity snowcone person so this was great.

Simple, affordable great for hot days. The location is not fancy but it is what you would expect from a place to get shaved ice. They have a bunch of games for kids to entertain themselves or adults: corn hole/bean bag toss, large connect 4, hula hoops 😊.
Tip: for $20 get $30 in pelican dollars. Well worth the price. You would almost get 7 regular treats for $20 now you get 10! Great deal!

If you haven't come across Pelican SnoBall yet in Durham, drop in. Shaved Ice in a million flavors and a few more things to boot, you can tell how good it is by the constant stream of cars in and out of the parking lot. I've not seen it packed to the gills yet, just a constant stream of people. It's location reminds me of the ice cream stand at a small local ball park, everyone parks and goes up to the window to look at the immense menu. Trying everything would take some time, but I know I seldom get the same thing twice. Furthermore, if you're watching your sugars or you're diabetic they have some options that don't use the sugar syrups that taste wonderful as well. That's always a plus to have as an option.
I'm sure many of my fellow citizens will note that Pelican SnoBall has also been active in our community, showing up at schools, events, and parks. That's always a plus to see and when I can use my meager budget to support a business like that I want to. That way I know its going to my neighbors and not somebody a million miles away.
