LAKE GENEVA, Wis. — Lake Geneva will soon have a “snowy fairytale playground.”
Winter Realms, a new take on Ice Castles, will take place from approximately Jan. 26 to Feb. 11, weather permitting.
The open-air experience provides visitor with all their favorite winter activities — but without the castle.
There is no shortage of things to do.
Visitors can take a sleigh ride along the golf course at Geneva National Resort and Club, complete with trees filled with glowing lights. Guests can similarly take a walk among the colorful lights.
But if you’re looking for a more adrenaline-inducing experience, you could ride the ice slides or cruise down the tubing hill.
The experience also comes with snow caverns, igloos, ice sculptures and an ice throne. If you’re looking for a more private environment, Winter Realms offers that too. Guests can purchase a private booking for the secluded Arctic Alcove. Officials describe it as “perfect for proposals and other milestone moments.”
Looking to get warm? Snuggle up by the smoking ice volanco or head to the Polar Pub for a beer or winter cocktail. There are also plenty of sweet or savory treats available at the event.
Tickets are available for purchase now and can be bought in 30-minute entry time slot increments. On weekdays, guests can choose any time between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m.; on Fridays from 3 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.; on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.; and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. They range in price from $26 to $30, depending on peak times.
