Where to Visit?

The increasingly popular winter attraction can be found in five locations across the US. This year, New York's location is transforming into the Winter Realm and will not offer the ice castle experience, but tons of other fun winter activities!

Woodstock, New Hampshire

Located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, Woodstock is a quintessential New England mountain town with tons of slopes to ski down in the winter months. There are plenty of overnight accommodations, restaurants, and activities to do around the area. Visitors can expect big and small ice slides, ice thrones, horse-drawn sleigh rides (for an additional cost), and more! One thing that makes this particular ice castle location unique is that guests are also able to go snow tubing down a nearby hill at no additional cost!

New Brighton, Minnesota

Just a 14-minute drive north of Minneapolis, the New Brighton ice castle offers similar amenities as the other locations, including twin ice slides that guests can grab a sled and race down on.

Midway, Utah

Less than 30 miles southeast of Salt Lake City, Midway is located within the Rocky Mountains in Heber Valley which has been dubbed Utah's 'Winter Wonderland', offering tons of snow-filled activities like snowmobiling, fat tire biking, skiing, and more. Explore ice tunnels, slip down ice slides, and take a winter sleigh ride for a small additional fee.

Lake Geneva, Wisconsin

Built next to Geneva National Resort and Club, this Wisconsin location is set in a winter paradise with skiing, sledding, and ice skating options nearby. Guests can enjoy an open carriage ride on the resort's premises for a little extra cost. At night you can enjoy the icicles illuminated by LED lights.

Cripple Creek, Colorado

This year, the ice castles are bringing back their Colorado experience. Located in Cripple Creek about an hour's drive from Colorado Springs. The Colorado location had been closed for the past two years, so the welcome back is expected to be bigger and better than ever.

Winter Realm in Lake George, New York

Located in the Adirondack Mountains, Lake George is a great ski location and annually hosts a winter carnival in February. There are also several unique 'ice bars' in town for tourists and locals to enjoy. Though in previous years there has been an ice castle at this location, due to the changing climates and expected warmer winter, they are hosting something a bit different this year—The Winter Realm. You'll find a dazzling lit-up ice skating rink, a polar bar, ice sculptures, and so much more at this new event!
