I’ve never really liked winter very much. I always find it to be to cold and I can never find anything to do. I’ve always thought summer was the best because you could go outside and find so much to do. That was until I found out about the Ice Castles.
My husband, kids and I recently went to the Ice Castles in Eden Prairie, MN. It was absolutely beautiful. We went through the ice tunnels, down some of the ice slides, went through mazes and even saw some characters from the movie Frozen.
My daughters loved the seats they had made from ice.
They even had this really neat chair.
They even had a waterfall. That was amazing to see. I thought it was absolutely beautiful. I thought it was a wonderful touch to the Ice Castles.
Olaf was found sitting on top of the ice.
Anna and Elsa were in a frozen ball.
Sven was also in a frozen ball.
Even Superman was frozen inside a ball.
The tunnels were fun to go through. My daughters had a blast going through all the tunnels. It’s a lot easier for the kids to get through, so adults may have to duck your head down so you don’t hit the top.
I would have to say that the slides were my daughters favorite part. They enjoyed going down the slides made from ice. It was a whole different experience for them. What kid wouldn’t like going down an ice slide?! Right?!
This was one of my favorite photos I captured. You can see how all the icicles are hanging. Just being able to capture all these photos was amazing. I could walk around the Ice Castle for hours if it wasn’t so cold.
On certain days they have certain performances. We went on a Monday, so we were not able to see any of these, but if you have the chance, I’d definitely go. I have heard that weekends get busy, so be prepared to stand in line for a while.

This was such an amazing experience for my family and I. They also have three other locations in Lincoln, New Hampshire, Stratton, Vermont and Midway, Utah. If you ever have the chance to go I would highly recommend going to the Ice Castles. Your family will love it!
