The popular Ice Castles attraction is under construction and is expected to open sometime in January of 2022 in New Hampshire.

The annual winter attraction, which draws tens of thousands of visitors each year, features ice slides, crawl spaces, caves and fountains illuminated at night. There is also a snow tubing hill, a forest walk, horse-drawn sleigh rides and a new ice sculpture garden and an illuminated winter fairy village this winter.

Construction has already begun, with ice artisans growing, harvesting and hand-placing icicles to create the frozen attraction. Each day, up to 10,000 icicles are being added to the multi-acre ice castle.

The attraction is expected to open in early January, weather permitting.
