The popular Lake George Ice Castles will be back for a second season, and with it, some exciting new additions.

We're still at least a month or so before this magical exhibit opens, but with interest already starting to pique, the Lake George chamber announced some changes.

According to a post in the Glens Falls Chronicle, the Ice Castles will be "expanded and enhanced" in year two, and some of the major additions include,  "an ice bar, whimsical winter characters for meet-and-greets, and new light features….So there will be something new for both adults and kids alike."

"The walk-through structure, built by hand from sculpted icicles by the “ice artists,” features LED-lit frozen thrones, ice-carved tunnels, slides, fountains, sculptures and private “ice rooms” to rent." - Glens Falls Chronicle

Naturally, the weather needs to cooperate in order for the Castles to really shine, and warm or damp winter weather can cause them to melt, shutting down the exhibit.

But this year, organizers are hoping that's not the case when the Ice Castles open in January and continue through early March, depending on the weather.

According to the report in the Chronicle, Ice Castles are hoping they can be allowed to pull more water from Lake George this year, so it can build bigger, heavier ice structures less susceptible to melting.
