Ice Castles in New Brighton to open Friday

The popular Ice Castles attraction is set to open to the public on Friday.

The company announced Monday that tickets will go on sale online at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

The attraction returned to Long Lake Regional Park in New Brighton after missing last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ice Castles’ artisans have spent the past eight weeks creating the experience — which features ice-carved tunnels, fountains, slides, towers and color-changing lights — and have been aided by "amazing temperatures."

This is the seventh year the attraction has been built in Minnesota and the second in New Brighton.
