Ice Castles Preparation Underway In Excelsior
Construction is underway on a holiday display of a different kind near the Twin Ctiies.
Ice Castles is bringing their acre-sized attraction to the city of Excelsior.
It's expected to open to spectators in late December.
Each day up until then, ice artisans will grow and harvest up to 10,000 icicles to build the winter experience. Each icicle is hand placed and sprayed with water. That process is repeated until the castles reach heights of about 30 feet.
This year's castles will feature ice-carved slides, tunnels, fountains, crawl spaces, and more!
Excelsior is one of six Ice Castles locations in North America and the only one in Minnesota.
