We wish we could accommodate everyone that wants to do a photoshoot at Ice Castles. Due to the extensive daily maintenance, prep work and weather dependency we are unable to accommodate all of the requests.

We will not be able to accommodate Portrait, Family/Child and Wedding/Engagement Photography sessions outside of operational hours. 

Guests wishing to explore opportunities to utilize Ice Castles for commercial purposes/photoshoots must contact us here.
