We returned to Dillon Ice Castles last week. It is becoming something of a family tradition and the hubby and I mused that we will have pictures of Roark for every year he grows up at Ice Castles.
There were a few new things we were able to enjoy this year at the Dillon Ice Castles. First, Roark was able to crawl in the ice tunnels and he he enjoyed sliding out of them as well. He was even able to go down the kid slide on my lap and wanted to do it over and over again.
We got to see parts of the Dillon Ice Castles that we didn’t see last year and I even got to ride down the slide for the first time. Let me tell you, that was AMAZING! My only complaint is that the slide is not very long, so it only lasts a few seconds.
I am always amazed that people can build such works of art. And I consider the Dillon Ice Castles a work of art. Every night, the builders grow the icicles and spray the existing structures to create more ice. In the morning, they attach new icicles to old ones, adding layers, upon layers of magic. They even have lights built into the ice structures that light up at dawn. Unfortunately, we have not been able to see that yet with the little one, but we are hoping next year is the year!
During our visit, we learned so much about the history of the business and my favorite thing was that the Ice Castles started because the founder wanted to build a cave/playground for his kids in his yard- out of ice. It became quite a sensation with other kids in the neighborhood and Ice Castles was born. Now talk about creativity! I kinda want him to adopt me.
I’ve made a request that next year the slide be bigger, let’s see if the Ice Fairies can work their magic!
