Lake Geneva Ice Castles opening delayed due to 'unprecedented warm start to winter'

LAKE GENEVA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The opening date for Lake Geneva's Ice Castles has been pushed back due to the "unprecedented warm start to winter."

"As a weather dependent attraction, built entirely from ice, we are unable to build the castles in temperatures above freezing," said Melissa Smuzynski, Ice Castles marketing and public relations. "This winter, we have had very few days that remained below freezing for more than a couple hours."

Smuzynski says Feb. 3, at the earliest, is the new targeted opening date. 

She said they are hopeful that cold temperatures ahead will allow them to finish building the experience in the next couple of weeks.

Those who purchased tickets for Jan. 27-Feb. 2 have been notified and refunded.
