A spectacular frozen fantasy for the young – and young at heart

What kid would not want to play in an ice castle? And the Ice Castles in Lincoln have everything a child – or a child at heart – could fantasize about: ice slides, ice thrones, tunnels to crawl through, frozen fountains and towers. Sometimes there is even an enchanted frozen princess to greet castle guests. And there’s always a spectacular light show at night, turning the ice fortresses blue, red and green. Families are advised to buy tickets ahead to get arrival times (you can spend as much time as you like once you’re inside), to dress warmly with boots and to consider a small sled instead of a stroller for really little ones. There’s a concession stand with hot chocolate and cider. Tickets are guaranteed to sell out each weekend - be sure to buy yours in advance on our website!
