You can wind your way through the world's largest ice maze at the Alaska State Fair this winter.
The new attraction opened in mid January, welcoming guests to navigate a labyrinth of pathways among solid ice formations illuminated by lights frozen within it.
The Ice Maze is the creation of artist Cory Livingood, an ice artist. Construction began on December 17, and due to wildly changing weather conditions, it was a challenge. Running a pump around the clock, it took nine days to create the ice maze. Livingood was on site the entire time, working 186 hours and sleeping only 30 during the nine days. The final construction is indeed the largest ice maze ever created, but in order to receive the title from the Guinness Book of World Records, it had to be professionally surveyed and photographed. It is currently awaiting the official title.
The Ice Maze is open Wednesdays through Sundays, 4-9 p.m., weather permitting. Tickets are $15 for adults, $13.50 for seniors and $10 for children age 3-11. Tickets must be purchased online HERE prior to arrival. Because it is an outdoor attraction, dress warm and have fun!
