The whole castle is made from 25,000 pounds of ice all grown from a nearby icicle farm. The 20,000-square-foot structure is made entirely of ice.

Crews from Ice Castles LLC battled unseasonably mild temperatures in Lake Geneva throughout November and December, twice postponing the opening of the attraction. Construction began in October.

Visitors can try out slides, tunnels, mazes and other interactive components.

With the winter cold now here and the construction complete, site manager Jesse Stone said he was thrilled to see crowds finally enjoying the Ice Castles.

The Ice Castles are located at 812 Wrigley Drive, Lake Geneva. For the venue's hours and more information, click here.
