Enter a breathtaking world built with hundreds of thousands of icicles by professional ice artists. Explore castles filled with frozen sculptures, thrones, slides, fountains, tunnels—all illuminated with colorful LED lights.

Ice Castles founder, Brent Christensen, created his first icy work of art at his home in California to bring happiness and joy to his kids. When his family moved to Utah, he built an ice cave in the yard to cure his kids of cabin fever during the long winters.

Christensen started Ice Castles in 2011, and it’s now located in six cities in the U.S. and Canada during the winter:
