MIDWAY, Ut. – The Ice Castles in Midway will open to the public at 6 p.m. on Friday, January 14, 2022, just in time for the holiday weekend. Tickets go on sale on the company’s website Tuesday at 5 p.m.
Weekday (Monday-Thursday) pricing for ages 12 and up is $15 and $11 for children ages 4-11. Weekend pricing (Friday-Sunday) for ages 12 and up is $22, and for kids ages 4-11 is $15.
Ice artisans are working around the clock to get the attraction at Soldier Hollow Nordic Center ready for Friday’s grand opening. The interactive experience will feature ice-carved tunnels, fountains, slides, frozen thrones, and cascading towers of ice embedded with color-changing LED lights.
Guests can also add a horse-drawn sleigh ride to their visit.
Artisans have spent the last eight weeks growing, harvesting, and hand-placing icicles to create the life-size fairytale playground. But it hasn’t been without setbacks. Mild temperatures this winter delayed the attraction’s opening by about a week.
The Utah venue, which has been seen on National Geographic, the Travel Channel, Lonely Planet and Travel and Leisure, has inspired four other locations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, and New York.
