Crews begin building Ice Castles in Excelsior, Minn.

- Construction has now begun on Ice Castles, to be found this year in Excelsior, Minnesota.

Crews have turned on water and begun growing icicles, which are the primary building material for the acre-sized attraction. The ice artisans will grow and harvest up to 10,000 icicles each day, working a combined 4,000 hours.

Each of those icicles is then hand-placed and sprayed with water. The process is repeated until the castles reach heights of around 30 feet. 

The Utah-based company behind the attraction anticipates the castles will open in late-December.
