If you live near Midway Utah or Breckenridge Colorado or Lincoln New Hampshire, you are in for a real treat. Ice Castles is a man-made dream world and we took the boys to check it out! They’ve all been enjoying the movie and soundtrack to Frozen (who hasn’t?) so our trip was perfectly timed. We’ve got some tips we learned to make your experience even better, let’s go!
Wear boots. With so much foot traffic the ground is loose and you’ll find yourself stepping in foot deep snow at times!
Buy tickets in advance. The line to purchase is long, but there’s a separate line for people with pre-purchased tickets. It will save you a lot of time! Either way it’s worth the wait.
Ditch the stroller. There are narrow hallways, and lots of people around, and you’ll wish you didn’t have it. Bring a child carrier or enough arms to hold your non-walkers. Luckily, Midway’s has stroller parking at the entrance.
You’ll want to see the castles in perfect daylight and at night when they start lighting them from the inside with colored lights. Either get your hand stamped and come back, or go around sunset so you can get the best of both worlds. It was truly magical for every age!
