The past 3 years we’ve been skiing in Alta, Utah (read blog post here) but this was the first time we had time to venture somewhere different! Park City is somewhere most people think about when they think of Utah so we decided to stay there one night, check out the scene and also make a pit stop to the Utah Ice Castles since it was only 30 minutes. Keep reading to find out if the Utah Ice Castles were worth it!
From Park City, Utah Ice Castles are approx. 30 minutes away. We found it very easy finding an uber to get there but it was pretty difficult to get an uber back since it’s in the middle of nowhere. If you aren’t renting a car, keep that in mind. We had to call a tax service to come pick us up!

What you are paying for?
Ticket prices are reasonable but also non refundable. You are able to reschedule within 24 hours. We had to cancel our initial trip last minute due to COVID and unfortunately lost the money! Make sure to book in advance because spots sell out quick. Also, bookings are in 30 minute increments, but the day we went we had no issues staying longer than 30 minutes – in fact we stayed for an hour just to make sure I got the right shots I wanted!
Is It Worth It?
Many people asked me if the Utah Ice Castles was worth it. Here’s what you need to know: The Ice Castles are built from thousands of icicles and is 100% manmade. With that being said, it is a sight to see and a great photo op. Be prepared for it to be busy with tourists, especially kids living out their Frozen dreams! There are fountains, thrones and ice slides to make the experience more magical. I’m glad we went but it’s definitely something to do once! Check out the pictures we got below! Initially when we had planned to go to the Ice Castles I was prepared to take some “cute” pictures in some warm clothes but my friends peer pressured me into packing a big lehenga and I’m so glad I did!
