A winter wonderland made of icicles grown from 4 million gallons of water will be created at the Mall of America this winter.

The ice castle, made by a company called Ice Castles LLC, will stand 40 feet tall and an acre wide. It will be illumniated with colored lights. The company says it will be the largest castle it’s ever made.

Officials say it will take four to six weeks to construct the castle. A late December opening is planned, and the castle will stay in place until late February.

Admission will be $10 for adults and $5 for kids ages 3-12.
