Last night we decided to check out the Ice Castle in Dillon with some friends. It has been advertised like crazy and sounded like it could be pretty cool. It only lasts as long as weather permits so we thought we should go now. We were originally thinking we’d go in March when we have some family in town but it’s been a warm winter and it may not last.
Ice Castle Tickets
We bought our tickets online prior to going. We found a coupon code that saved us a couple more bucks. Try happykids in the promo code box. Tickets are for a specific time frame when they want you to show up. Once you are there you can stay as long as you’d like. I’d recommend wearing your ski gear. It’s cold and if you make the most of it, you’ll be sitting on, crawling over, and touching a lot of ice.
Self Guided Tour
They told us the ice castle is on about an acre of land. They even gave us a map to navigate our way around it. They have a room with a hot tub that squirts water into the air. They have colored lights that are spectacular on the ice formations. There are a couple of slides and a few tunnels you can go through. It’s a great place for the kids to play and it brought out the kid in me. I belly crawled into a couple caverns and tried out both slides and of course, took quite a few pictures.
It’s an interesting experience that I would recommend. It’s a little pricey for what it is but what isn’t these days. I hear it’s going to be an annual event so if you missed it this year, put it on the calendar for next. It’s pretty cool (pun intended)!
