There are only five of these in North America and one is being created right here in Wisconsin Dells at Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park. The Ice Castles crew is on site as you read this, creating a 25-million pound ice castle that should be open to the public this month, weather cooperating. It takes 4,000 hours to create the structure, made entirely of ice and snow, with 10,000 icicles grown and put into place each day. Wear warm clothes and winter boots to enjoy this breathtaking attraction. The ice castle will remain open as long as the weather is cold enough.
