Lake Geneva has a new reason to visit this winter. Ice Castles is the perfect excuse to plan your escape! Visitors can walk through a real-life winter wonderland at Riviera Beach in downtown Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Ice artisans will spend a combined 4,000 hours this season dripping, shaping and hand-placing harvested icicles into a castle display. Lake Geneva's castle will feature ice-carved slides, tunnels, fountains, crawl spaces and more. Bring the family and visit Lake Geneva this winter!
Ice Castle artisans carefully create icicles, harvest them and purposefully position them in the display using sprayed water. If you are in Lake Geneva for the holidays, stop by Riviera Beach to see them at work. When completed, the ice castle will stand 30-feet high using fresh water from Geneva Lake.
Ice Castles was founded by Brent Christensen, a Utah father of six, who was looking for ways for his family to enjoy the outdoors together, even during the winter. He created an ice cave in the front yard of their home, which ultimately brought out more than just his own children. Ice Castles is now an internationally renowned experience with six locations in cities across the United States and Canada, including Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
