If you thought Elsa’s castle in Disney’s “Frozen” was the stuff of magic, well we have news for you. An enchanting Ice Castle has just opened in the Wisconsin Dells—or maybe we should call it the Wisconsin (Aren)Dells.
So exactly what is this ice wonderland all about? Let’s take a look, shall we?
This creation, made entirely of ice, is filled with caves, twinkling lights and even ice slides. According to the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel, it was crafted out of 12,500 tons of ice.
It’s the work of Ice Castles LLC, a Utah-based company that also sets up castles in Utah, Minnesota, New Hampshire and Canada, according to the publication.
The site will be open from 3 p.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Friday (though they are closed on Tuesdays), 12 p.m.-10 p.m. on Saturdays and 12 p.m.-8 p.m. on Sundays.
It will remain open from Jan. 13 until Mar. 5 and general admission ranges from $6.95 to $12.95 if you book online. Prices are higher if you wait to buy tickets at the door, so be sure to buy ahead online.
It’s recommended that you wear snow boots for your visit to the Ice Castle and to bring a sled to pull children rather than a stroller. They also recommend that you don’t miss the opportunity to take amazing photos during your visit and post them tagging #icecastles. We can’t wait to see the amazing photos people capture this season.
Here are a couple of our favorites among the stunning photos already posted on the Instagram account @icecastles_.
The Wisconsin Dells Ice Castle is set up on the grounds of the Mt. Olympus Resort, and whether you’re from this Wisconsin area or not, you’re going to want to consider paying this enchanting place a visit. Or check out one of the other Ice Castle locations throughout the country and in Canada!
