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 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.
