Ice Palace

Since the Ice Palace was a very cold place and populated by creatures who were created by the magic of ice and snow, it only makes sense that a warm weapon would be quite useful. Those explorers who had command of the Fire Rod found this device to be very useful in the chambers of the Ice Palace. A supply of Potion was also good to have as the enemies were very strong and in large abundance. The villain, Kholdstare lurked deep in the palace dungeons.

First Floor

The Ice Palace was built where a Faerie once granted wishes, in the Pond of Happiness.

Dark World Entrance

The way to reach the Ice Palace was through a Warp Tile in the Light World. This magical entrance to the Dark World was located under a heavy rock at the entrance to the Pond of Happiness.

Fourth Basement

A Break in the Ice

The Ice Palace was carved out of a huge iceburg. So, it was not uncommon for some of its passages to melt away. A HookShot was a very important item to have in cases where the flooring had dissolved and nothing was left but a bottomless pit.

Fifth Basement

Cold Corridors

The chambers of the Ice Palace proved to be quite a maze. Adventurers were particularly perplexed by a switch in the floor of one of the lower chambers which would only keep a door open when constant pressure was applied.

Sixth Basement


Some Ice Palace creatures could only be defeated by the powerful Ice Rod. Go here for an enemy list and boss tips for this level.

It is said that 90% of an iceberg is underwater. This was true in the case of the Ice Palace, as most of its chambers were well below the water line.
