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 effect 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 the 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 the Ice Castles, as well as individuals with specialized wheelchairs that have wheels made to withstand a surface like ours.

We do not allow strollers within the Ice Castles. If you are bringing small babies or young children who would typically want to be in a stroller we recommend wearing them in a wrap, or you may possibly consider bringing a sled to pull your child in. Sleds are allowed in the Ice Castles, we just ask that guests with sleds are courteous of other guests and do not run with their sleds.
