Dad Grows Ice Castles-Youtube

This cool dad took it upon himself to make something fun for the whole family – so he started growing his own backyard ice castles that notoriously attract families from around the world.

Brent Christensen started the Ice Castles entertainment company on an acre and a half of land outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. The castles each range from 30 to 40 feet tall and weigh about 30,000 tons each.

Brent and his ice artisans create the castles by growing and harvesting up to 10,000 icicles a day. The workers place the icicles to strategically build the framework and then they hose the area down with water so that the pieces freeze in place.

The company now has several other locations in Wisconsin, Minnesota, New Hampshire, and Alberta. Many of the “buildings” are even equipped with ice slides and nighttime displays featuring lights and music.
