Visit the Ice Castles
Today we were able to explore the Ice Castles! It’s really an amazing place with fountains, slides, tunnels, and caves. The Ice Castles is amazing because its made over months of adding water to icicles over time letter each layer freeze. We happened to go in the day but going at night has its perks too. During the night the ice castles are lit up with different colored lights and some nights there are even fire performances (see special events).
Couple of things to mention if you do visit is I would highly recommend wearing boots or snowshoes. The floor is made up of crushed ice and will get in your shoes. Along those lines dress warmly. Even on a sunny day like we went, it was still cold. In fact, it may not be a bad idea to dress in show gear with snow pants especially if you plan to go down the slides as you will most likely get your pants wet. We wore gloves and hats too. If you do go in the day wear sunglasses as the sun shines off the ice.
You cannot use strollers and the facility is not handicap friendly. Hiking poles are permitted but wheelchairs are not. You can bring a small sled to pull kids around as well. There is some food available for purchase inside the castles but not outside food or drink is permitted. There is a heated gift shop and port-a-potties on site.
Overall plan an hour or longer to explore the castles. While at the ice castles you can go down several slides. There are also tunnels and caves as well as some fun little passages. Bring your camera! It is really a fun magical place worth a visit.
