Visit the Magical Ice Castles

Beginning in 2017, Ice Castles moved to Lowell Park in Stillwater. Find it there, again, in 2019.

In 2013, the Mall of America was host to one of Brent Christensen’s Ice Castles. At the time I didn’t realize what I was missing out on by not visiting it. However, in 2015, I made sure to not miss out. I packed up the kids and drove out to Eden Prairie’s Miller Park just off Hwy 212.

Brent Christensen created his Ice Castles after moving from warm, sunny California to snowy Utah.  He likes to experiment and play around and the snow and ice of Utah were the perfect vehicle for his creativity.

Enjoying Ice Castles in Eden Prairie

Since 2011, he has been creating this masterpieces for the public all over the country.  This year, four different locations are hosting an Ice Castle and they are all unique–even though they use many of the same elements, tunnels, waterfalls, ice, etc. 

What to expect from Ice Castles

  • Perfect Setting for pictures. Bring your cameras. If you don’t, you will kick yourself. You are walking into the Land of the Ice Princess. You need to look for a frozen Olaf and on select days, you can meet Elsa and Ana.  
  • Hot chocolate, coffee, cider, cookies, and sandwiches for sale. 
  • A frozen tube slide 
  • Ample opportunities to crawl into tunnels and play hide and seek (although I don’t recommend that since lots of people are visiting and you may actually lose your children).
