Visit the Ice Castle

All Weekend
Enter the truly magical world of the Ice Castle. If you had a chance to visit last year, you know how fascinating it can be to visit. This year, the latest Ice Castle opened at the Hobo Railroad in Lincoln. A sight to behold, this one has enchantment written all over it. Spanning over an acre, the ice castle is built by "growing" icicles using an irrigation system. The result is nothing short of sensational.
