New Hampshire Ice Castles returns for its sixth year on Friday, with a move from Lincoln to North Woodstock.

The acre-sized castle features ice-carved tunnels, slides, fountains, frozen thrones, and other ice formations. This year’s offerings include the option for “a horse-drawn sleigh ride through an enchanted winter forest,” according to Ice Castles.

“We are thrilled to bring Ice Castles back to New Hampshire this season,” Ryan Davis, the CEO of Ice Castles, said in a statement. “And now, families looking to enjoy time together outdoors this winter can not only experience the magic of Ice Castles, they also have the option of taking a fun sleigh ride through a beautiful snow-covered forest.”

Since its founding in 2011, Ice Castles has expanded its winter displays into six different areas in North America, from Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, to Edmonton in Alberta, Canada.

Tickets for the New Hampshire Ice Castles are now available at icecastles.com. Most North American locations are open until March, depending on weather.
