The frozen, tactile art exhibit pops up in six cities across North America this January. The Ice Castles include breathtaking LED-lit sculptures, frozen thrones, ice-carved tunnels, slides, and fountains.

According to the Ice Castles site, each castle is built by hand and takes thousands of man-hours to create. The daily process consists of growing 5,000 to 12,000 icicles that are harvested by hand and individually sculpted into ice formations.

LED lights frozen inside the ice light up and twinkle to music adding a magical ambiance to the breathtaking interactive sculptures.

All Ice Castles sites are located next to a natural water source so the water returns directly to the environment to be used again by wildlife, people and plants in spring. “We look forward to bringing new winter experiences and giving our guests even more unique ways to make winter memories together,” Ryan Davis, Ice Castles CEO.
