It's like a scene from a fairy tale: frozen waterfalls, fountains, and ice caves that magically light up at night. Made up of hundreds of thousands of icicles, the ice castles are one of the most unique attractions in Utah and, really, the world. This year, the Midway ice castles relocated from Soldier Hollow to Homestead Drive to take advantage of city water, which makes the ice turn blue, only adding to the previous mystique. The best part about the display is that it's interactive, giving guests the opportunity to wind through tunnels, get lost in the jagged mazes, or take a run down this amazing attraction's newest edition: a two-lane ice slide.
