Ice Castle

The bright vibrant colors of the ice castles takes place in Lincoln New Hampshire. It is a wonderful activity to do on a chilled night. All of the Ice Castle is made of real ice and snow, the floor is different from the walls of the castle. It is made to look like gravel but it is actually crushed ice and snow packed down. The Ice Castle is obviously outside, so the temperature in the Ice Castle is the same as it would be outside. image
Tickets are usually sold before you arrive. If you buy your tickets online, they will send an email with a QR code after you purchase the ticket. And when that night comes they scan it off the phone or a printed piece of paper. The price is ranged on if it’s either a weekend or a weekday.

The Ice Castle is based in Utah, founder is Brent Christensen and crew. It is about an acre, and it reaches about 25 feet high at some points. The castle uses sprinklers, and the cold winter air to form huge icicles that sculpt together within a period of time. This process sometimes takes up to twice a day, depending on the temperature. Brent continuously spends time perfecting the fortress. After everything is shaped to expectation of the crew. They are able to make large tunnels, towers, and caves, for people to come and see.

It is possible to walk through the ice castle during the day, but at night it’s a totally different experience. It’s filled with colorful bright lights that make the ice glow.image
