The material of the walking surface is made up of crushed ice and snow, and this creates a walking surface much like a cold, sandy beach. Weather conditions affect the walking surface, and while it is usually not slick, there can be some places that are slippery.

While we will not turn away an individual in a wheelchair, you will want to carefully consider the best way to experience Ice Castles. The bumpy, uneven surface could cause pain if an individual has sensitivity to a bumpy ride, and pushing wheels through the surface is extremely difficult and takes a lot of effort. We have had groups such as the Australian Paralympic team successfully navigate Ice Castles, as well as individuals with specialized wheelchairs that have wheels made to withstand a surface like ours.
