Ice Princesses and Fire Dancers
A castle isn’t complete without princesses! Our very own Ice Castle Princesses will be making appearances throughout the duration of the Ice Castle. You may also be lucky enough to spot our daredevil Fire Dancers or hear the royal youth choir performances on special chilly evenings. Click here for a full schedule of all Ice Castle entertainment!
Wintercraft Ice Lanterns and Sculptures
Throughout the Ice Castle grounds, guests can enjoy the out-of-this-world elegance of Wintercraft Ice Lanterns and Ice Sculptures. These enchanting fire-and-ice lanterns and sculptures are all custom-made by Wintercraft, a Minneapolis-based company. Bring the fun home with you: Wintercraft Globe Ice Lantern Kits can be purchased on-site at the Ice Castle. Kit prices range from $14.99 to $44.99
It’s cold out there!
Because the Ice Castle is outdoors and takes approximately 20 – 30 minutes to go through, we recommend that you dress warmly. This means considering things like:
- wool socks
- heavy coats
- dress in layers!
The Ice Castle is always changing. As the weather stays cold, the Ice Castle will continue to grow, even while it’s open to guests. Because it is continuously evolving, we recommend that you plan to visit multiple times for the ultimate Ice Castle experience. Keep up with the changes with the live streaming Ice Castle Cam!
Keep in mind: The Ice Castles: Mall of America does have a capacity. Please be prepared for longer wait times during the grand opening, holidays, evenings and weekends as it is more likely to reach capacity at those times.
