Tickets will go on sale on Friday morning. 

The Dillon Ice Castles are a popular winter attraction here in Colorado, and it was just announced that they will be opening on Saturday, December 19, for the 2020-2021 season. Dates and hours are dependent on the weather. The castles were approved to return this year with new COVID-19 friendly restrictions. Located in Dillon Town Park, the attraction brings in a lot of business and holiday cheer to Dillon and delights thousands of visitors every year.

Tickets will go on sale tomorrow morning, Friday, December 18, on the Dillion Ice Castles website. Some tickets may be available at the door if they are not sold out.

Opening night will start at 6 p.m. on December 19, and the attraction will be open in a limited capacity. Masks are required for everyone, and social distancing rules will be in place. Some areas may be closed off.

Some things to know before you go:

  • If you or anyone in your family has not been feeling well, you are asked to visit at another time.
  • A 6-foot distance must be maintained between all household groups whenever groups are seated. 
  • Staff will be masked at all times.
  • Guests are required to wear masks or face coverings in all common areas, near other guests, and when interacting with employees. 
  • High touch areas are being sanitized regularly. 
  • Crawl spaces, slot canyons, and tunnels will all utilize a one-way traffic flow and be marked as such to help maintain social distancing. 
  • Hand-sanitizing stations are located throughout the attraction near the entrances, exits, restrooms, and concession area. 

The Dillon Ice Castles have been a big hit since they came to Colorado a few years ago and are always one of those attractions that sell out quickly. The amazing colors and ethereal displays delight children and adults alike, making this a family-favorite.

The ice castles also have locations in North Woodstock, NH; Midway, UT; and Lake Geneva, WI.

Often described as a fairy tale brought to life, it takes almost two months and a lot of people to construct the giant icicles and embed them with LED lights.
