Ice Castles may bring out the kid in all of us, but this season we’ll have something NEW just for adults 21 and up! This winter, we’re excited to debut ICE BARS. Come grab a drink and warm up at the chilliest place in town.
Freeze your special moment in time with a private, secluded experience inside our Arctic Alcove. Whether you are proposing, celebrating a special occasion with a small group of family or friends, or just want a quiet area for a more personal and intimate experience, our Arctic Alcove gives you an exclusive, private area of Ice Castles away from the crowds for a moment of magic and memories.
How are they built?
They start by “growing” more than 5,000 icicles each day that they harvest and sculpt together. Newly placed icicles are then drenched in freezing water. The blend of icicle placement, changing temperatures, water volume, and wind result in an astonishing variety of ice formations. And so all of the beauty you see at the ice castle is a unique blend of an artistic eye and mother nature’s work.
The process is repeated once or twice a day, depending on temperatures. and after about a few weeks of growth they can create very large towers, tunnels, archways, caves, caverns, and safe pathways for pedestrian exploration. Continued development of the structures throughout the winter results in an evolving ice masterpiece. Odds are, that if you come to visit one of the ice castles more than once, you’ll have two very different experiences.
