MOA's ice castle construction to begin next month

Publish date:

The Mall of America released more information on its highly anticipated ice castle attraction expected just in time for Christmas.

The Business Journal says Utah-based Ice Castles, LLC will begin building the frozen structures next month. Construction takes about four to six weeks.

According to the company's website, the Mall of America's ice structure will be one of the largest ever. Fifty ice towers organically grown from 4 million gallons of water will be connected to create a series of tunnels and caverns.

The illuminated fortress will be open to the public from late December through February. Tickets will cost $5 for children ages 3-12 and $10 for adults, according to the Journal.
