This year, visitors can also take a horse-drawn sleigh ride through an enchanted winter forest.

A horse-drawn sleigh ride through an Enchanted Winter Forest and a new location highlight this season of icy fun in New Hampshire. 

Each year, this popular winter attraction draws ten of thousands of visitors from across New England. The Ice Castles open this year on Friday, January 11 at a new, permanent location just a few miles away on Clarks Farm Road in North Woodstock, New Hampshire. Tickets are now available at icecastles.com.

“We are thrilled to bring Ice Castles back to New Hampshire this season,” said Ryan Davis, CEO of Ice Castles, LLC. “And now, families looking to enjoy time together outdoors this winter can not only experience the magic of Ice Castles, they also have the option of taking a fun sleigh ride through a beautiful snow-covered forest.”

The new location in North Woodstock is just 2.5 miles from Hobo Railroad in Lincoln where Ice Castles has been in previous years. Ice Castles features ice-carved tunnels, fountains, slides, frozen thrones and towering ice formations.

The acre-sized castle in North Woodstock is one of six Ice Castles locations in North America. Other locations include Midway, Utah; Dillon, Colorado; Excelsior, Minnesota; Lake Geneva, Wisconsin; and Edmonton, Canada.
