Midway, Utah (January 10, 2024) – The wait will soon be over for the return of one of Utah’s most popular winter attractions. Ice Castles in Midway, Utah will open to the public at 11am on Monday, January 15, 2023. The attraction originally anticipated an open date of January 13, but an unseasonably warm December pushed back the event’s plans. Ice artisans are working around the clock to get the attraction in the Wasatch Back ready for the weekend. The interactive experience will feature ice-carved tunnels, fountains, slides, frozen thrones, and cascading towers of ice embedded with color-changing LED lights. This season, the icy fortress is also adding a soda and hot chocolate bar. The Soda Bar will offer a variety of winter-themed hot chocolate and soda drinks.
“We’re excited to finally announce our opening day in Utah,” said Ice Castles CEO Kyle Standifird, “Mother Nature has thrown us a few challenges this season, which delayed our opening. While winter doesn’t always come on our schedule, we’re thankful that it does come eventually.”
Ice Castles has three other locations in Colorado, Minnesota, and New Hampshire, and two Winter Realms locations in New York and Wisconsin. Additional information and promotional images can be found at www.icecastles.com/press.
About Ice Castles
Ice Castles has been bringing fairy tales to life since its inception in 2011. Founder Brent Christensen developed the patented process used to create Ice Castles while attempting to build a winter playground for his kids in the front yard of their home in Alpine, Utah. The project drew crowds who came out to tour Christensen’s frozen creation. Ice Castles has since turned into an internationally renowned tourist attraction with multiple locations across North America.
