  • SCENES & CHARACTERS YOU KNOW AND LOVE

    SCENES & CHARACTERS YOU KNOW AND LOVE

    Over 40 world-renowned master artisans spend over 6-weeks hand-carving approximately 6,000 blocks of ice to create this one-of-a-kind Christmas attraction! With over 17,000-square-foot and 9 immersive scenes, here's a peek at some of our favorite scenes you won't want to miss! 
    • Hot Chocolate

      We Got It! Hot Hot Hot, Hot Chocolate!

      Glide & Slide Through Glacier Gulch

      Plunge down one of 5 ice slides, including one specially-sized for kids, while surrounded by a larger-than-life ice sculpture of The Polar Express gliding across Glacier Gulch. The icy locomotive appears to be getting closer as it descends the mountain, complete with melodramatic lighting from inside the train and fog effects, immersing visitors in the classic movie! 
    • ICE Christmas Tree

      You Have Arrived at Your Destination

      Reach your final destination, The North Pole, to find Santa's elves monitoring children around the world to see when they are naughty or nice! Plus, an 11-foot Santa Claus  towers over visitors presenting the first gift of Christmas: a silver bell from his sleigh. Do you hear the bells?
    • ICE! Carver

      ICE! Carver Showcase

      While experiencing the arctic artistry inside ICE!, visitors can see the magic come to life in the Carver's Showcase, as a master artisan creates ice sculptures in live demonstrations. Ice carving is a way of life for many in Harbin, China - so much, in fact, that it is known as "Ice City" and is home to the world's largest annual snow and ice carving festival.    
    • Nativity ICE

      O Holy Night Nativity Scene

      The ICE! experience concludes in a separate area dedicated to a Nativity scene, meticulously carved and shaped into a dramatic display of crystal-clear ice.
