Lake Geneva’s ice castle was set to begin hosting visitors on Jan. 23.
Officials at Ice Castles LLC posted the long-awaited grand opening day, with operating hours six days a week.
A spokesman said the frozen interactive funhouse will be open 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 4 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Fridays, noon to 10:30 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 8 p.m. Sundays.
The attraction is closed Tuesdays.
General-admission tickets went on sale Jan. 21 for the new outdoor winter attraction on the Lake Geneva lakefront.
Tickets can be purchased and tours can be scheduled at www.icecastles.com.
General admission tickets are $15.95 on the weekdays and $18.95 on the weekends. The cost for children is $10.95 on the weekdays and $15.95 on the weekends.
Ice Castles president Ryan Davis said patrons buying tickets will schedule a date and time for their visit within a 30-minute interval, which means they must arrive in that 30-minute time frame.
“That way we don’t have too many people coming at once, and we don’t end up getting overbooked,” Davis said.
There is no time limit on how long patrons can stay in the ice castle once they are inside.
People who made pre-sale ticket orders previously can go to the website to schedule their visits at any time, beginning immediately.
Ice Castles LLC is building an estimated 20,000 square-foot outdoor frozen funhouse on Lake Geneva’s Riviera Beach. The attraction will include slides, mazes, fountains and other interactive features.
The operating hours have not been announced yet, and Davis said he is not certain of the exact capacity of the attraction.
“We will figure that out as we go along,” he said.
Davis said the structure will be closed during inclement weather.
