Last year I think Sam and I decided to finally check out the Ice Castles…on the coldest day of the year…but it was 100% worth it! Honestly, being that cold almost made the experience better (until I couldn’t feel my toes anymore). You can experience it for yourself starting this Friday in Hawrelak Park

You can find more information and buy your tickets in advance if you go to icecastles.com, here are some tips they have for you!
“Wear Boots! The walking surface inside of the Ice Castles is made of crushed ice. Walking in boots is definitely best.
Buy Tickets Before You Arrive! When you buy a ticket, you buy an arrival time. We ask that you arrive within your 30 minute time window. Once you are inside the castle you can stay as long as you’d like!
Save some trees! When you buy your tickets online we’ll send you an email with a unique QR code, so there’s no need to print your tickets. We can scan the code right from your phone!
Photos are encouraged (and we want to see them! #icecastles) but we ask that you please leave photography equipment such as tripods and lights at home. For information about commercial or specialized photo sessions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sleds are better. We highly recommend bringing a small sled to pull children instead of a stroller. It is extremely difficult to push the stroller through the castle (think of it like trying to push a stroller through a sandy beach).”
