HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO WALK THROUGH THE ICE PALACE?
We get this question a lot but different groups stay for different amounts of time. If you just want to quickly walk through to see the ice, you might only be there 15 minutes (not recommended). Other groups (who dress warm) stay for a couple hours. Our fire shows start at 5:30 p.m. as well as your favorite snowman and winter princesses who visit! There are fire pits, a sledding hill, and lots of good food and drinks so hang out and visit as long as you'd like.
CAN I BRING A WHEELCHAIR OR STROLLER?
You will be walking through crushed ice and snow so it is very difficult to push anything with wheels. Strollers and wagons with large wheels are manageable but may still be difficult. Wheelchairs are not recommended. Sleds are really the best way to navigate the Ice Palace! Bring one large enough to accommodate your stroller or a chair plus a little muscle to pull it and you will have a much more pleasant experience.
WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY?
Dogs Only. No other pets will be allowed on Ice Palace grounds. Dogs must be well-trained and on a leash at all times. Dog leashes cannot exceed 4 feet. Owners must clean up after their dogs. Please do not allow dogs to urinate within the immediate Ice Palace or Courtyard grounds. Only one dog per owner will be allowed. Please keep in mind that on most nights, the Ice Palace will have large crowds, music, and lots of little children. If your dog is not suitably trained to be around these situations, please leave them home. We require dogs be removed from the premises immediately if we detect any behavior that we deem aggressive including but not limited to barking, lunging, and growling.
