Canada’s largest ice castle is open for 2018, complete with ice slides, frozen thrones, and, presumably, wanna-be ice queens belting out Frozen’s “Let It Go.”
Given the sheer magic of this collection of ice towers, we hardly blame anyone for feeling a small sense of royalty while wandering through Edmonton’s ice castle, especially once the sun goes down and the lights turn on.
Created by aptly-named Ice Castles, Edmonton’s attraction is one of six other ice castles in North America, being joined by a second, newly-erected Canadian castle in Winnipeg.
You will have to pay to check out the castle, but the pictures, memories, and Ista-cred you’ll end up with will be nothing short of priceless.
