Make the best out of a cold situation with Ice Castles.

Winter is still a couple of months away, but Ice Castles will be back for a magical winter wonderland back in North Woodstock, New Hampshire. They will have slides, caverns, tunnels, crawl spaces, and sculptures all made entirely from ice and snow. The award-winning frozen attraction also has a snow tubing hill, Mystic Forest Light Walk, and a Winter Fairy Village. And new this year is an ice bar with adult beverages! Ice Castles is great at making a winter experience, but not great at predicting the weather. So, hang in there for the opening date. Typically they open early to mid-January.

In a press release, the CEO of Ice Castles, Kyle Standifird said,

Winter is such a magical time of year. We're honored to be celebrating our 10th year in New Hampshire and have some fun new discoveries and surprises in store for guests of all ages.

Ice artisans (they are true artists!) will start as early as November.  It takes a team of about 20 ice artists to build the experience using icicles that they grow, harvest, and hand-place one by one. The ice is embedded with color-changing LED lights which creates something that makes their evening tickets the ones to grab! Grab your tickets early starting on November 28!

It is cool with the changing LED lights at night, but Mother Nature does a pretty good light show herself and you may just want to go both night and day. It's a totally different experience! Either way, enjoy and make sure that your camera is fully charged for great pictures!
