Glad we (family of 4 -- 13 and 16 yr old teens) did not pay full price for our tickets (Living Social deal). Visited during the evening in February. Did not have to wait in line (thankful because we did not think it is worth a wait) and went right in, with no major crowds on Thursday during NH school... More

We've been to the Hobo Railroad on a couple of occasions over the past year. Once for the Santa train ride and just this past weekend for the ice castle. Both times we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The staff are always friendly and courteous and the "value" is pretty good considering it being a tourist destination.

I wish the ice castles had their own attraction to review here- as I can not speak to the Hobo Railroad itself. The Ice Castles were amazing, we saw the night show- and seeing them lit up with the music playing was beautiful! Would highly recommend wearing snow pants, and allowing enough time to park. It was nice not to... More

The experience was fun and the price was good, $15 total for an adult and child. The tunnels and ice slides made it an icy adventure. It was just right for young kids, although some parents braved them too. We went late afternoon to see the ice in daylight but then once the sun set the lights were awesome. They... More

My family and I took a train ride which started out fun but after about 10 minutes the lack of scenery and the turtle pace speed I had a tough time keeping my eyes open; and most kids got pretty restless (the route takes you to the Jack O Lantern golf course and then just turns around).

The Ice a Castle in this location is a lot better than when it was a Loon mtn. We went on a Sunday night and there was plenty of parking and no line for prepaid ticket holders. The castle is so neat! There are lights that synchronize with music. Olaf is there to take a picture in front of. There... More

Winter is upon you and the weather is cold, snowy and everything you've come to expect it to be, as the old saying says "if you can't beat them join them". The ice castles in Lincoln uses the cold and ice to maximum effect by creating a winter wonderland out of towering sheets of ice and caverns illuminated softly by... More

My husband and I took the 2.5 hour drive to see this beauty for our Anniversary. We received tickets for Christmas. We stayed locally to do shopping and visit local businesses. We didn't run into a traffic problem, probabley because we happen to travel durring an unexpected Ice Storm. I wanted to arrive so we could see both day &... More

I came to see the ice castles on 1/23/15. It was a Friday night and there was no traffic, which was a huge plus! We were able to see the castles, go down the ice slides and take pictures without a crowd of people. We spent over an hour just admiring the castles- and we are 2 adults. Beautiful and... More

We visited the Ice Castles and the kids hated to leave. We went on a holiday and traffic was fine. They even had police directing traffic. It is absolutely beautiful. There is a cave to crawl through, a slide through a tunnel and much more. We plan to return during February school vacation. Well worth the trip and visit.
