  • I had an incredible time here! I stayed for 2 hours to get the full experience. Day time as well as the light up after dark. It was absolutely gorgeous. The staff were also extremely friendly...  more »
  • The Ice Castles were stunning - we went at 5:00ish and saw them in day, dusk and night - truly magical. The slides looked like great fun.  more »

  • A unique experience.. For some reason I was expecting more for the price paid per ticket and got bored pretty quick after visiting.. But I found for a short time for it to be really neat. A little bit of a maze with tiny rooms you have to squat to enter and some cool designs, some neat lights and a really fancy ice chair to sit on.. After about 15-20 minutes I ran out of things to do but for the price paid I felt that it was worth returning to the same things over and over to feel some value towards my ticket purchase.. All in all it wasn't worth the price of entry, if it was cheaper I would be more enthusiastic, but with that entry price, I naturally would have expected a much larger experience. I can't say I'd recommend this, solely due to the value of the experience does not match the entry price. Maybe if the ticket price was more in line with the experience there would be more repeat customers and more sales. Possibly more of an ice maze and more enclosed areas, maybe longer slides, more chairs. Maybe a big igloo.. Maybe more sculptures and a few themed vendors working out of partially ice-made facilities would make the experience worth the ticket price. Looking forward to improvements in one way or another next year. Until then I can't say I would recommend this. 3/5 unfortunately.
  • Worth every penny, loved every minute. It was really cold when we went but the coloured ice and wonder of the ice castles warmed our hearts ♥️ every step of the way. With children it would be awesome. I'm a big kid at heart and I had just as much fun! Don't miss out on this great winter wonderland. Thank You!
