Lincoln, New Hampshire


Thank you to everyone for all of your support this year at the Lincoln Ice Castles! We always wish the weather would allow us more time to create magical memories with all of you, but it seems Mother Nature wanted to give us a sneak peek into Spring.

We hope to see you all again next year!

Ticket Policies

All ticket sales are final. Ticket dates and times may by changed as long as changes are made at least 24 hours in advance. Please take this policy into consideration if there is inclement weather imminent or if you have a sudden change of circumstances.

Tips for a Great Experience

Wear Boots! The walking surface inside of the Ice Castles is made of crushed ice. Walking in boots is definitely best.

Buy Tickets Before You Arrive! When you buy a ticket, you buy an arrival time. We ask that you arrive within your 30 minute time window. Once you are inside the castle you can stay as long as you’d like!

Save some trees! When you buy your tickets online we’ll send you an email with a unique QR code, so there’s no need to print your tickets. We can scan the code right from your phone!

Photos are encouraged (and we want to see them! #icecastles) but we ask that you please leave photography equipment such as tripods and lights at home. For information about commercial or specialized photo sessions please email us at

Sleds are better. We highly recommend bringing a small sled to pull children instead of a stroller. It is extremely difficult to push the stroller through the castle (think of it like trying to push a stroller through a sandy beach).

For the second year in a row, and seventh time overall, the New Hampshire Maple Producers Association has deemed that the best maple syrup in the state is being made by the Fadden family.

The Faddens have been making maple syrup for nearly 200 years, said Jim Fadden, the family patriarch, and have been selling the sweet stuff at the Fadden General Store and Maple Sugarhouse since its opening in 1896.

Holiday Inn Express

This straight-forward hotel in a 4-story, gabled building adjacent to Interstate 93 is 2.8 miles from the Loon Mountain ski area and 4.5 miles from Franconia Notch State Park (home of the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway).

The rooms with en suite bathrooms all have free WiFi, flatscreen T Vs, microwaves, minifridges and coffeemakers, while some have forest views. Suites add separate living spaces and come with fireplaces and whirlpool tubs.

A complimentary hot breakfast buffet is provided. The hotel offers computers for guest use and meeting space. There’s also an indoor pool, a hot tub, a game room and a gym, plus free RV parking.

Loon Mountain

Loon Mountain is New England’s most accessible big mountain resort. Located just two hours from Boston and three miles off Interstate 93, Loon offers 61 trails and 2,100 vertical feet of unparalleled skiing and riding.

Although it’s close to home, Loon offers the kind of varied terrain and possibilities that you would find at a more remote resort. It’s a mountain that has something for everyone, whether you’re looking to ski the steeps or take your first snowboard lesson.
