Midway Ice Castles is a unique opportunity to visit man-made icicles made into a large castle. Last year, the Midway Ice Castles included tunnels and even a large slide. You can read more about our Ice Castles experience here.
This year, the Midway Ice Castles is set to open around January 11, 2017. Opening and the creation of the Ice Castles are completely reliant on the weather. In years past, it has opened earlier in the year, sometimes later, and sometimes closes early because of warmer weather.
The location of the Ice Castles is different again this year. Make note that the Midway Ice Castles will be able to be viewed at The Homestead at 700 Honestead Drive, Midway, Utah.
Meet Ice Princesses on Saturdays and Sundays from 12-5 pm. Fire performances will be on Fridays and Saturdays from 5:30-8:30 pm.
What to wear to the Midway Ice Castles
When you are preparing to head to the Midway Ice Castles, remember how cold it will be and that you will be surrounded by ice. We recommend wearing and taking the following:
- Snow boots
- Snow pants
- Hand warmers, especially for the little ones
- To pull little ones, bring a small sled instead of a stroller
The terrain of the Midway Ice Castles
The ice castles, as they are made of ice, can get slick while walking around, especially if it’s snowing at the time you arrive. They do their best to keep the snow on the ground sanded and salted but there could still be icy areas. The ground is not necessarily level and if you’re planning to go down the slide, expect an incline up to the slide. Last year, there was an arch above one section and it narrowed which meant that some people had a hard time getting through. There are large openings, as well as tunnels to walk through.
