Christmas in Ice, the 6-week winter ice park located next to Santa Claus House in North Pole, features Christmas-themed ice art competition pieces, ice slides and a maze, twirlers, indoor kids’ crafts, and educational ice sculpture demonstrations, adding color and light to our Interior Alaska winter. This unique ice park is constantly evolving throughout the 6 weeks. New sculptures and kid’s park pieces are added almost weekly.

Prepare for outdoor winter fun with snow boots, snow pants, gloves, and the rest! This is an ICE park and we think you’ll enjoy it more if you wear appropriate cold-weather clothing.

Our New Year’s Eve Spectacular begins at 10 pm Dec 31st with free admission to the park, countdown to ‘2016’ with Santa, and a spectacular fireworks show on park grounds. Join us for this family-friendly, alcohol-free, community event. The park doors will close at 11:45 pm so the volunteers can go outside to enjoy the fireworks and countdown at Midnight.
Sleds are available for park guests to use on the ice slides on a first-come basis. They are located at various slides within the park. Many thanks to the North Pole branch of Mt McKinley Bank for sponsoring the free use of sleds within the park this year!
Feel free to bring your own sleds. We also sell sleds at the park.

Ice Park offers the best in family entertainment! Ice Alaska is in its 26th year hosting the finest annual ice art competitions and exhibitions in the Western World. The Fairbanks event, the BP World Ice Art Championships, has grown to a month long attraction involving over 70 teams from all over the world. The competitions, and the accompanying kids park, attract more than 100 ice artists and approximately 45,000 visitors from Alaska and all over the world.
We are excited to be in our 4th year at our new location. The new Ice Park has a larger, deeper pond – O’Grady Pond Too – that produces abundant world class ice. The Single Block sculptures are nestled in a grove of trees and Multi-Block ice sculptures have a back drop of large trees with attractive sunscreens separating each piece. The center of the park provides ample open space for all the Kids Park activities which are highlighted by the big slides and an ice skating rink.
