This Amazing Timelapse Video Shows Utah’s Ice Castles Like Never Before

The Midway Ice Castles just seem to get better every year. If you haven’t seen them before, check out our article about these enchanting castles that are like something straight out of a fairy tale. The company got its start right here in Utah when one of the owners built an ice fort for his kids. It grew from there, and now people in New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Alberta, Canada are all reserving their tickets for this years’ castles.

The castles are created over a period of about 45 days. Take a look at this mesmerizing timelapse video that shows the process from start to finish. It was posted on by Roadtrippers.
