The Minnesota Ice Castle in Eden Prairie is one of only four of these uniquely crafted ice sculptures in the United States and what’s uber amazing about the castle is that it’s all crafted by hand. Over the year, the team of “ice farmers” grows 5,000 icicles per day and when winter hits, the castles get constructed in four selected states around the nation and this year Minnesota was chosen!
This year’s Ice Castle is located in Miller Park off Eden Prairie Drive just south of 494. This breathtaking ice castle is top-to-bottom ice, including the footing, bridges, tunnels, walls, benches and slide. It REALLY comes to life after dark when the lights come and from what I understand, its a site to behold.
Ticket prices for the Ice Castles can be purchased online and can be scanned on your mobile device or printed out.
