Over an acre of frozen winter wonderland will open for the season this week.

The New Hampshire Ice Castle will open for the season Thursday, Jan. 14. The Ice Castle is located at 24 Clark Farm Road, in North Woodstock. The location is just a few miles from its former location at the Hobo Railroad, in Lincoln.

This year's castle features massive turrets, archways, tunnels, ice thrones, ice slides and fountains that glow with colored LED lights frozen into the ice. According to NBC Boston, organizers are adding a quarter-mile magical forest walk, and a sledding hill. The added attractions are designed to encourage social distancing.
