The acre-sized, all-ice castle returns to Lincoln this winter. It features include giant archways, tunnels, slot canyons, ice slide, caverns, glacial waterfalls and a frozen throne, and  an amazing light show set to music at night.

The concept for Ice Castles was created when founder Brent Christensen attempted to build an ice cave for his daughter in the front yard of his home in Alpine, Utah. The project turned into a winter hit drawing crowds of locals to visit and tour his creation. Located in five locations across North America, the ice castles are built entirely by hand using hundreds of thousands of icicles hand placed by professional ice artists. The castles reach astonishing heights and include breathtaking LED-lit sculptures that twinkle and dance to ambient music at night, frozen thrones, towers, slides and fountains.

Weather permitting, the Lincoln Ice Castles will be open late December 2017 through February 2018.
