Magical Ice Castles Coming Soon to Lake George – Here’s How to Get Tix!
Last month, we announced that the popular Lake George Ice Castles would be back for the upcoming Winter season, and with it brought some new and exciting changes.
And while we're still a few weeks out, some new information was released about how and when you can get your tickets. That info is listed below!
The Lake George Ice Castles burst onto the scene last winter here in Upstate NY, and they're primed for even more success in year number two.
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
The announcement last month is exciting news for a popular attraction destined to soar to new heights in its second season, and recently, Lake George event organizers released ticket information.
How do you get tickets and when do they go on sale?
According to IceCastles.com, tickets for the Lake Goerge Ice Castles will go on sale on November 28th. Weekday pricing (Mon-Thurs) is a bit cheaper than weekend pricing (Fri-Sun).
Naturally, the weather needs to cooperate in order for the Castles to really shine, and warm or damp winter weather can cause them to melt, shutting down the exhibit.
But this year, organizers are hoping that's not the case when the Ice Castles open in January and continue through early March, depending on the weather.
According to the report in the Chronicle, Ice Castles are hoping they can be allowed to pull more water from Lake George this year, so it can build bigger, heavier ice structures less susceptible to melting.
