As winter winds down, time is running out to see one of the season’s most talked about attractions. Ice Castles in Midway, Utah will close for the season in just a couple of days. With high temperatures expected in the 40s next week,
Monday, February 25 will be the final day that the winter experience will be open to the public.
Ice Castles opened for the season on January 5, 2019. Over the past seven weeks, tens of thousands of people have toured the acre-sized attraction. The castles, which are made up of hundreds of thousands of hand-placed icicles, feature ice-carved tunnels, fountains, slides, frozen thrones, and towers that light up and twinkle to music at night.
The Utah-based company, Ice Castles, LLC, has six locations across North America this season. Other locations include Dillon, Colorado; North Woodstock, New Hampshire; Lake Geneva, Wisconsin; Excelsior, Minnesota; and Edmonton, Alberta.
About Ice Castles: The concept for Ice Castles was created when founder and Utah resident Brent Christensen attempted to build an ice cave for his daughter in the front yard of his home in Alpine, Utah. The project turned into a winter hit drawing crowds of locals to visit and tour his creation. Ice Castles has since turned into an internationally renowned tourist attraction with six locations across North America and growing.
