Make plans now to visit Lake George this winter, because a brand new interactive attraction is coming for the 2023/2024 season, and you will not want to miss out.

Find out the inside scoop on what to expect with Lake George Winter's Dream below, including an update on Winter Realms, formerly Ice Castles. Between the two, plus all the other events and activities that take place during the season, Lake George will be an actual winter wonderland!

An Extraordinary Multimedia Experience

Lake George Winter's Dream will transform the Fort William Henry Historical Fortress into a fantastical winter paradise. The attraction appeals to all ages, and taps into the nostalgia of everything you loved about winter as a child.

Visitors will be immersed in ultra-modern lighting, original music, video, special effects, architecture, and interactivity that draws out the emotions and sensations of this magical season. 

The attraction will take place at the Fort's outdoor courtyard and on all four bastions, and is expected to open on December 8, 2023.

Guests should expect to spend 45 to 60 minutes in the attraction. Photos will be allowed, just no flash photography.

There is no age restriction, although the attraction is best suited for those ages 7 and up. Strollers are not allowed inside the attraction because of space reasons, but there will be an area for stroller parking outside the experience.

The Fort William Henry Historical Fortress has undergone massive renovations to better assist those with mobility challenges. They will have a limited number of free wheelchairs available, and a built-in elevator reserved for guests with mobility needs.

The attraction will be open every day except Tuesday. Special open days are Tuesday, December 26, and Sunday, December 31. Winter's Dream will be closed on Monday, December 25, Monday, January 1, and Tuesday, January 2.
