Did you know that every year talented artisans from this festival descend on the Gaylord National resort in order to bring iconic Christmas scenes to life in the Greater DC metro area?
Every year, the ice sculptors transform about 2 million pounds of ice into amazing scenes from iconic holiday books and movies.
You will feel transported into the fictional land being portrayed so don’t forget to bring your camera because you will absolutely want to take photos.
One of the highlights of ICE! are the gigantic ice slides. Very slick, but so much fun. There are slides for kids as well as older kids and adults.
At the end of the tour, ICE! always recreates the nativity scene dubbed, ‘The true story of Christmas.’
You are ushered into a semi-private room with lots of funky bean bag chairs. Kids are given a huge cookie and bottle of milk and they listen as Mrs. Claus reads them a story.
