Winter Realms in Lake George is officially open for the season, and the opportunity to explore an Après-ski ice bar, mesmerizing light trails, ice sculptures, and more within this snow-capped fantasyland is for sure enough to talk you into embarking on the 3.5 hour drive from NYC!
Winter Realms, previously known as Ice Castles and brought to you by the same creators, is a winter wonderland filled with over one million color-changing LED lights, Christmas trees, and an ice sculpture village that showcases all of the Chinese Zodiac animals.
Each year, the event team brings fairytales to life at various locations throughout the U.S. A second Winter Realms attraction recently opened in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, and four other Ice Castles locations can be found in Colorado, Minnesota, New Hampshire, and Utah.
By rebranding Lake George’s attraction, the experience can offer more weather-resistant winter fun to visitors even when winter weather is scarce.
General admission tickets start at $17 for off-peak times and $20 for peak times and give you access to the entire experience.
And, for those looking for a bit more, you can reserve a private experience in a Arctic alcove, the perfect option for a special occasion.
The VIP experience includes:
- A private area roped off from the public
- 6 tickets to Winter Realms
- 6 ice skating passes
- A 20% merchandise discount
Lake George’s Winter Realms is open now through Sunday, March 3rd.
This is truly an experience you won’t want to miss out on. To find out more about this enchanting, winter wonderland, visit their website.
