Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer gets a starring role as the theme of this year’s extravagant “Ice!” holiday exhibit at the Gaylord Texan Resort. The 15th annual walk-through display features 2 million pounds of colorful hand-carved ice sculptures, which tell the story of Santa’s luminescent sleigh guide, “the most famous reindeer of all.” In addition, children can play on five ice slides as adults sip cocktails at a bar made of ice and the entire family can enjoy a snow tubing hill, ice skating rink, holiday-themed escape rooms and a new Christmas carousel. Take mittens and hats and prepare to wrap up in a provided parka — the 14,000 square foot arena is kept at a frigid 9 degrees Fahrenheit.
Other Lone Star Christmas attractions include a snow tubing hill, ice skating rink, holiday escape rooms and an all-new Christmas carousel.
ICE! is open daily, Nov. 9-Jan. 1, 2019, Tickets start at $13.99 for children and $22.99 for adults, with discounts for ages 55+ (free for children 3 and younger, no strollers inside the exhibit).
