Set Up Begins on Magical Ice Castles, Coming to Lake George For First Time
The Ice Castles are coming. Work is underway for the cool winter attraction coming to Upstate New York for the first time this winter.
Festival Commons in Lake George, New York is filled with activity as crews begin the process of setting up for the magical Ice Castles. Water lines are being laid out before the ice-making begins.
It'll take 8 weeks and 25 million pounds of ice to build the hundreds of thousands of icicles that turn Festival Commons from an open field......
Into a winter wonderland of LED-lit sculptures, frozen thrones, ice-carved tunnels, caverns, slides, and fountains. By day, this frozen fortress glimmers a natural glacial blue. At night, color-changing lights embedded inside the ice twinkle and dance to whimsical music.
Ice Castles is set to open in Lake George on January 22, if Mother Nature cooperates. Take the whole family for a day or night of cool fun.
Squeeze through passageways just large enough for children and adults who are adventurous enough to crawl.
Get lost in a maze of ice tunnels.
Immerse yourself in icy caverns and walk beneath archways of massive icicles dangling overhead like a winter chandelier.
Race down one of the ice slides.
Book a VIP experience in a private alcove within the castle, perfect for proposals or other special occasions.
