The Ice Castles You Need to See to Believe

Kick the winter blues when you see this icy blue structure that is an out-of-this-world experience.

The Ice Castles are a magical winter wonderland. Starting in 2009, Ice Castles started being featured in different locations including Utah, New Hampshire, Alberta and new to Wisconsin and Minnesota this year.

The spectacular sight of these ice castles were coming to a site near me. Obviously, I needed to get there.

This manmade wonder uses tens of thousands icicles that are created and placed throughout the structure. In time, the construction of the icicles are absorbed, contributing to the growth of the structure. The exact science behind the 25 million pound ice structures is now patented.

Within the park, there are features that amaze kids and adults alike. Enjoy snowy trails, tunnels, maze, ice slides, fountains and an evening light show with family and friends. Open for everyone to enjoy, go and create unforgettable memories in this place!

  • Admission is cheaper during the week–$9.95/adults, $6.95/children–and $12.95/adults, $8.95/children on weekends
  • Arrive during your dedicated timeframe and stay in the park as long as you wish
  • Buy tickets for early evening to see the sunset and frozen light show
  • Check the website for updates before you go in case of closure due to unseasonably warm temperatures
  • Dress for the weather! Don’t forget to wear your winter hat, gloves and boots.

  • Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
    completely off topic but I had to tell someone! http://pagebin.com/mDCShTjF
