News to Know Around Lake George With a Wonderful Winter Attraction and a Business Expansion
Introducing: Ice Castles! A Winter Attraction Coming to Lake George
Although we’re all hyped up about the fall right now, frosty fun is just around the corner. The much-talked-about sensation Ice Castles is officially coming to Lake George in January 2022, as announced at a press conference on October 5 at Charles R. Wood Park; this is also the future location of the attraction.
Lake George Village Mayor Robert Blais, Warren County Tourism Director Joanne Conley, Chairwoman of Warren County Board of Directors Rachel Seeber, Ice Castles CEO Kyle Standifird, and others gathered to celebrate and answer questions on Ice Castles.
Highlights of the new, hand-constructed attraction include: an ice castle approximately 1 acre in size with 20 million pounds of ice, towers roughly 20 to 25 feet tall, crawl tunnels, slides, caverns, thrones, an Arctic Alcove where a private experience can be booked, and color-changing LED lights frozen in the ice.
