Dillon Ice Castles announces when they plan to close for the season

There’s only one week left for those hoping to check out the popular Ice Castles in Dillon.

DILLON, Colo. — The Ice Castle that have lit up Dillon Town Park over the past few months are set to wrap up a third season in Colorado. 

Organizers announced that with start of spring in a few weeks, the frozen spectacle will close for the 2019-2020 season on Saturday, March 7.

The Ice Castles opened for the season on Dec. 28, 2019 and over the past nine weeks, tens of thousands of people have toured the outdoor attraction, according to organizers.

The popular event is made up of hundreds of thousands of hand-placed icicles and features ice-carved tunnels, fountains, slides, frozen thrones, and towers that light up at night. LED lights frozen inside 25 million pounds of ice twinkle to music at night. 

There's still time to purchase tickets. General admission for ages 12 and up is $16.99 during the week and $20.99 on weekends if purchased ahead of time.

Utah-based Ice Castles, LLC, operated five other locations in the U.S. this winter season.
