ICE! at the Gaylord Texan is holiday family fun!

This post is sponsored by Gaylord Texan Hotels and ICE!

ICE! Dallas Gaylord’s signature holiday attraction is back with a new RUDOLPH theme for 2018!

It doesn’t feel like the holidays until we wear those big blue parkas and slide down the ice hills at ICE! Every year we look forward to the new attraction inside the Gaylord Texan hotel — which is dressed to the nine’s from head to toe! With so many family friendly activities there are to do. I’m a little bit jealous of the families who have conferences there, but what a great family staycation it would be!

Experience favorite scenes from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer brought to life in this walk-through winter wonderland carved from more than two million pounds of colorful ice! It’s everything Christmas in one extraordinary place!

In addition to the indoor ICE! exhibit, there is ice skating, 12 lanes of ice tubing, stories with Mrs. Claus, gingerbread house decorating, Santa’s escape room, Build a Bear workshop, Rudolph’s Holly Jolly breakfast, and more!

  1. I use to love coming but not anymore! Parking ($15) is rediculous and too far. Just added more waiting time to the experience. There are other attractions that are better!
