Exploring the new 'Ice Palace Maze' in Stillwater, Minnesota

The maze promises half a mile of icy corridors, plus a slide and an "ice-bar."

Nothing says winter like walking through a frozen maze.

Stillwater's Ice Palace Maze is made with over 1,500 ice blocks -- each block weighing about 280 pounds. That's almost half a million pounds of ice!

The maze includes half a mile of passageways, which light up at night.

If puzzles aren't your thing, there still might be something for you at the Ice Palace Maze. You could check out the ice slide, or grab a drink at the outdoor ice bar. 

The maze is sponsored by Explore Minnesota and several other local partners with the hope of bringing more visitors to Stillwater after a difficult 2020.

It's located at The Zephyr Theatre, 601 Main Street North, Stillwater, MN 55082. 

The maze is open to visitors now. You can get tickets and find more information on the website: IcePalaceMAZE.com. Most January tickets are sold out, but the maze is set to stay open through Feb. 28. 

Because of the pandemic, the maze will only have up to 100 visitors at a time.
