Ice, Ice Baby: The Midway Ice Castles Open This Weekend

By Tessa Woolf January 23, 2015

WHAT: Date-night just got a whole lot cooler: the annual Midway Ice Castles are set to open tonight! But if you want to stroll mitten in mitten through the acre-sized Narnia-like winter wonderland with your beloved, this weekend (and Monday) may be your only chance to do it due to warmer temps in this season's forecast.

The Ice Castles not only make a fun night out, they're also a stunning backdrop for engagement and bridal photos—like the image above by Jacque Lynn Photography—thanks to icy archways, tunnels, slot canyons, caverns, slides, a glacial waterfall, and a frozen throne. Check out more of Jacque Lynn's Frozen-esque bridal images for inspiration. 

WHERE: 2002 Soldier Hollow Road, Midway

WHEN: Friday, January 23 and Saturday, January 24, 6 p.m.-midnight; Monday, January 26, 6-10 p.m. (closed Sunday, January 25) Check the Ice Castles website for future open dates.

HOW: Tickets are limited and must be purchased in advance online.
