Buy your tickets early. Best on a Sunday night. Friday and Saturdays its packed. Great experience walking through the different rooms and tunnels. LED lights change the ice different colors. Could use some more ice sculptures though.

When you first walk in it is breathtaking! Amazing what they can do with ice! We went when it was about 15 below zero! Dress in layers-NOT the place to be a fashion-ista! Wear winter BOOTS. Use bathrooms BEFORE entering. Take the time to stand...More

Though a bit pricey, Ice Castles was a pretty cool site. The kids had fun and the adults enjoyed the ice slide almost as much as the kids. Best to go at night after sunset and mid season when they have campfires in the center.

... for a UK visitor anyway. The time to go is just before it gets dark. Have a quick look round while it's still light, then enjoy the lovely colour effects as the sky turns dark blue.

This year the Ice Castle had fire dancers. Unfortunately, people put kids on their shoulders, stood in front, and basically most people are taller than me! It was cool, but I don't think you need to stay for the whole show. The slide is super...More

The ice castles were cool no doubt. But from what the online pictures look like and what they make it sound like, it's pretty far off from the actual thing. They are built in a parking lot and once your inside it doesn't take long...More

1st time visit to this attraction after hearing lots about it. It was very pretty. Amazing to be surrounded by all the ice! Glad I went but would probably not do again. For me it was worth seeing once.
