Ice Castle Wonderland in the Dells sets opening date

Warm winter temperatures have slightly delayed the creation of the Wisconsin Dells' first Ice Castle Wonderland, but the cold weather seems to be here to stay for a while and the tentative opening date is Jan. 12.

The Ice Castle is located at Mt. Olympus Resort – near the near the intersection of Wisconsin Dells Parkway and County Highway A, next to the "upside-down" White House.

Thirty builders are working on the massive ice project that, when complete, will feature a 35-foot tower, fountain, walkways, tunnels, slides and a maze – all of which will have an embedded light show.

It's recommended that guests wear boots, buy tickets online, use the hashtag #icecastles when posting to social media and bring a small sled for children instead of a stroller. For more FAQ go here.

Ice Castle Wonderland will be open six days a week – closed on Tuesdays – through March 18, 2017 if the cold weather permits. Ticket prices and hours of operation vary; go here for all of the information.

Slip, slide away! (Not literally, please.)
