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!
