Ice Castles - Cripple Creek, CO

Glowing ice creations in snow

Are you longing to feel that child-like wonder and amazement again? Want to create memories with family and friends that will live on long after winter is over? Then you have to bundle everyone up and visit Ice Castles in Cripple Creek, Colorado before it’s gone!

This magical winter wonderland returned to Colorado for the 2023/2024 season and now has a new home in the historic town of Cripple Creek. The colder temperatures in this beautiful area help to create an awesome setting for the event. From the moment you pass beneath the cascading, icicle-adorned entrance, Ice Castles leads you on an enchanting journey through ice creations twinkling with fairy lights, up frosty slopes to race down thrilling ice slides, and winding around colorful frozen mazes and ice caverns.

Explore frosty mazes with tunnels that open to huge, icy caverns glowing with shades of blue, red, purple, green, and pink.
