Ice Castles

In a year where many annual traditions and events have been put on hold, Midway’s Ice Castles will reopen this winter.

The winter wonderland will still offer its icy playground in January despite the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Each year the acre of land is designed with frozen slides, crawl spaces and caves. During the night there are lights that illuminate the ice and in the day it looks like the inside of a glacier.
