Take the kids to ICE at the Gaylord Texan for the coolest, coldest Rudolph Reindeer ice sculpture tour ever (Bonus: there’s an ice slide to ride!)


There’s no way to mentally prepare yourself for two million pounds of ice and snow. Or the bone chill of the 12 degree air, especially when a breeze hits you square in the nose. The upside, though, is it’s just a fifteen minute stroll through the icy world of ICE!, part of the Gaylord Texan Resort’s annual Lone Star Christmas celebration. The entire resort is done up in holiday fashion. Two million twinkling lights, a 54-foot Christmas tree, snow slides, a gingerbread house…you’re gonna be Griswalded out before Santa even takes to the sky.

ICE! is a blast, and it opens Friday, November 9. The two million pounds of ice have been stacked, glued together with water, then carved into some really cool designs by a team of Chinese artisans. This year’s theme is Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. The sculptures’ vivid hues are created by using food coloring, and the whole thing stays around until January. Then all the ice is chopped up, carted out and left to melt in a big field somewhere, Wizard of Oz style.

Tickets are available here and include free parkas (bring mittens and hats), free runs on the ice slide and photos are permitted.

Take a walk through the fun with me:
