Minnesota Ice Castle

MOA Ice Castle Week 4 Progress

MOA Ice Castle Week 4 Progress

Don’t miss out on the ice castle being built in the parking lot at the Mall of America in Bloomington!  The castle will open on New Year’s Eve, December 31, and stay open until February 20, weather permitting.

This is something to see! The castle is being constructed on a roughly 1 acre parking lot with around 4 million gallons of water.  The first to be created in the Midwest, the Ice Castle is built by a unique, patent-pending construction process using icicles that are fused together, rather than blocks of ice typically used for ice structures. Water from sprinklers freezes over the icicles creating spires, walls, tunnels and cascades.  The castle itself will be 40 feet tall.  It is not just something to look at, you can actually go inside and walk through it!  The icicles sparkle during the day in the sunlight and at night it is illuminated by thousands of multi-colored lights in the ice.

Don’t miss this one of a kind event! For hours of operation and ticket prices, click here.

Take a look at this progress video to see how the structure is actually made, it is definitely interesting!
