EXCELSIOR — It’s official: The Ice Castles will not be returning to Excelsior this winter.
Ice Castles LLC announced Friday, Nov. 1, that the popular winter attraction will be built about a 40-minute drive northeast from Excelsior, at Long Lake Regional Park in New Brighton, this year.
“We are thrilled to bring the magic of Ice Castles back to Minnesota this winter,” Ice Castles CEO Ryan Davis said in a news release. “Long Lake Regional Park is a great, convenient location just 20 minutes north of both downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul. The scenic park on the banks of Long Lake also makes for the perfect backdrop for our winter experience.”
