Ice Castles In Midway To Open Saturday

Ice Castles

MA popular winter attraction in Midway will open Saturday. Ice Castles will return for its ninth season this Saturday, January 5, 2019. Tickets are now on available online at

The Utah-based company, Ice Castles, LLC, is currently building in six cities across North America. The attraction features ice-carved tunnels, fountains, slides, frozen thrones, and cascading towers of ice embedded with color-changing LED lights that twinkle to music at night.

“The first Ice Castles location we ever built was here in Midway,” said CEO Ryan Davis. “Utah has been so supportive of Ice Castles, and we are proud to bring this winter tradition back to our home state for another season.”

Artisans have spent the last five weeks growing, harvesting, and hand-placing icicles to create the life-size winter playground which brings tens of thousands of people to Midway each season. The frozen creation at Homestead Resort is made up of 25 million pounds of ice and is roughly an acre in size.

The company has other locations in Stillwater, Minnesota; North Woodstock, New Hampshire; Lake Geneva, Wisconsin; Dillon, Colorado; and Edmonton, Alberta.

About Ice Castles: Ice Castles was founded by Brent Christensen, a Utah father of six who was looking for ways for his family to enjoy the outdoors together, even in winter. He created an ice cave in the front yard of their home, which ultimately brought out more than just his own children. Ice Castles is now an internationally renowned experience with six locations in cities across the United States and Canada and growing.
