Midway Ice Castles

Midway Ice Castles are a fun unique experience where you get to visit an ice castle made from man-made icicles. We have loved visiting the ice castles, they have gotten better and better each and every year. I think this year was by far our favorite. The kids especially loved that they had more slides.

This year, the Midway Ice Castles is set to open on December 29, 2017. Opening of the ice castles is always dependent on weather. Sometimes they open earlier and sometimes they have to close early because of the weather. It’s best to attend the ice castles early on in the season because if the weather doesn’t stay cold they have to close early.

The Midway Ice Castles are built at The Homestead at 700 Homestead Drive, Midway, Utah.


Monday – Thursday: 6pm – 9pm

Friday: 6pm – 10:30 pm

When pulling into The Homestead off of Homestead Drive, continue following the road left until it wraps around the “Homestead Crater.” At the end of the road you will be greeted by a parking attendant who will help you.

Wear Boots! The walking surface inside of the Ice Castles is made of crushed ice. Walking in boots is definitely best. (Especially if you have kids I would highly recommend full snow gear.)

Buy Tickets Before You Arrive! When you buy a ticket, you buy an arrival time. We ask that you arrive within your 30 minute time window. Once you are inside the castle you can stay as long as you’d like!

Save some trees! When you buy your tickets online we’ll send you an email with a unique QR code, so there’s no need to print your tickets. We can scan the code right from your phone!

Photos are encouraged (and we want to see them! #icecastles) but we ask that you please leave photography equipment such as tripods and lights at home. For information about commercial or specialized photo sessions please email us at [email protected].

Sleds are better. We highly recommend bringing a small sled to pull children instead of a stroller. It is extremely difficult to push the stroller through the castle (think of it like trying to push a stroller through a sandy beach).

Fire Performances

Enjoy a high energy fire show before entering the Ice Castle! They will amaze you with a versatile and unique show using many different manipulation props including fire breathing, spinning, hula, and more.

Princess will take breaks throughout the scheduled time, so please be patient and understanding with this need.
