Embrace the deep freeze and celebrate the Minnesota way — by bundling up and exploring the great outdoors. Get together with family and friends to explore the Ice Castles attraction in Excelsior, MN, a winter wonderland that’s fun for all ages. Wander among hundreds of thousands of icicles hand-placed by ice artists and marvel at LED-lit sculptures throughout. Wind your way through the ice caves, climb a tower, and take the fun way down on a solid ice slide. A unique winter adventure, close to home!

You’ll warm up with fire dancers and hula hoopers from Insphyre Performance, who beautifully contrast the icy backdrop with their fiery talents from 6-9pm on Fridays and Saturdays. For the kids, come on Saturday or Sunday afternoons between 12-5pm to take a photo with the enchanted Frozen sisters.
