We do not limit the amount of time spent enjoying the Ice Castles. Typically guests spend about 30 minutes to an hour.
Whether you're planning a visiting during the day or night you can expect to have a spectacular experience. The daytime allows you to appreciate the deep blues that only the natural light of the sun brings out in the ice, as well as the details in the Ice Castles. At night LED lights illuminate the Ice Castles from within as you experience the majestic creations under the stars.
Unfortunately we are no longer able to allow guests to leave and come back in the same day, so be sure to experience everything you want to see and do before exiting the Ice Castles as you will not be allowed to reenter once you leave.
If you're hoping to experience the Ice Castles both during the day and at night we recommend purchasing a ticket with an arrival time just before sunset. Be sure to dress warm so you can fully enjoy the time spent inside anticipating night to come. These time slots vary by day and location so be sure to check for the anticipated sunset time on the day you'd like to visit, and then purchase tickets for your preferred location below:
