Shape shifters sculpt it, to help get over their homesickness for their alien ice planet.

Actually, apparently...

Quote
Built one icicle at a time

Visitors often ask how we create the ice formations that we call ice castles.  We start by “growing” more than 5,000 icicles each day that we harvest and sculpt together.  Newly placed icicles are then drenched in freezing water.  The blend of icicle placement, changing temperatures, water volume, and wind result in an astonishing variety of ice formations.  And so all of the beauty you see at the ice castle is a unique blend of an artistic eye and mother nature’s work.

We repeat this process once or twice a day, depending on temperatures. and after about a few weeks of growth we can create very large towers, tunnels, archways, caves, caverns, and safe pathways for pedestrian exploration.  Continued development of the structures throughout the winter results in an evolving ice masterpiece.

I thought she said at the end of the video that she filmed in Colorado.
I thought they just turned on a sprinkler .... they actually moved them and formed them? wow
In Wyoming the big sprinklers that water the hay would make some cool stuff on cold nights in the fall. :)
