The hugely successful sub-zero experience - The Magical Ice Kingdom will host even more fantastical snow and ice sculptures. This year children and adults are invited to walk through the fairy forest to discover a frozen lake and the ice queen, explore the ice palace, sit on the thrones and slide down the castle slide.

Filled to the brim with awe-inspiring snow and ice sculptures including magical princesses, frozen animals and ogres the Magical Ice Kingdom is the biggest ice and snow sculpture experience of its kind in the UK.
