The Lake George Ice Castles burst onto the scene last winter here in Upstate NY, and they were primed for even more success in year number two.

But uncooperating milder North Country weather has dampened the spirits of those who wanted to see the magical formations - which unfortunately have been canceled far to often this year.

The popular Lake George Ice Castles will be back for a second season, and with it, some exciting new additions.

What's new in year #2?

According to a post in the Glens Falls Chronicle, the Ice Castles will be "expanded and enhanced" in year two, and some of the major additions include,  "an ice bar, whimsical winter characters for meet-and-greets, and new light features….So there will be something new for both adults and kids alike."

"The walk-through structure, built by hand from sculpted icicles by the “ice artists,” features LED-lit frozen thrones, ice-carved tunnels, slides, fountains, sculptures and private “ice rooms” to rent." - Glens Falls Chronicle
