The structure will continue to morph and grow through the duration of its existence as icicles will be added, and certain patches may melt and refreeze due to temperature fluctuations. The space will also take on a certain glow at night as thousands of LED lights will be set up to illuminate the castle both inside and out.
It will take four to six weeks to build the ice castle, and the mall plans to open it for viewing sometime in late December, hopefully running through February. Admission is set at $10 for adults, and $5 for kids. For more information about the ice castle project, visit www.icecastles.com.
