We enjoyed our visit to the Ice Castles - it was beautiful and we were in awe! Our only disappointments centered around us not being able to go to the gift shop and get warmed up and then being able to re-enter the Ice Castles....More

I personally enjoyed the ice castles. I know a lot of people who think they are overrated or kind of lame. But I felt transported right into the world of Disney’s Frozen! I have no idea how they built these things but they are spectacular....More

Amazing to see these man-made ice castles! A very cool spot to visit if you are in NH. It's a good for any age, but I noticed it was especially fun for children and families. There were Disney characters there you could take photos with...More

We are so glad you stopped by our New Hampshire location. It is one of our largest Ice Castles and certainly provides a winter experience worth remembering.

This is definitely a cool place...The structure, integrity and design of the castles is super cool, if you can appreciate something like that. Otherwise, pictures can be deceiving. I may have an unpopular opinion on them, but pictures made them seem like they were enormous...More

Very unique and have never seen anything else like it. The concessions were a bit overpriced. $4.50 for a Pillsbury cinnamon roll? And $4 for some Swiss Miss hot chocolate?

Well we can check Ice Castles off of our bucket list. It was an okay place to visit for the day. Our pictures did come out cool but the actual Ice Castles themselves were smaller than I imagined they’d be. The lights at night were...More

It was worth the trip but dress warm because you are surrounded by ice. The workers were very informative about how the castle was built.

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.

No it is only open in the winter and selected dates. The castle is very sensitive to weather so if it is a cold winter it will last longer.
