GAYLORD NATIONAL'S ICE!
AT NATIONAL HARBOR in PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY
November 15th, 2013 to January 5th, 2014
As part of Christmas on the Potomac, the Gaylord National Resort's ICE! is a special holiday event in Prince George's County you won't want to miss. This holiday season, Gaylord National Resort's smash-hit holiday attraction returns with a brand-new theme. The 2013 edition of Gaylord National's ICE! will feature 'Twas the Night Before Christmas', which will bring the classic holiday poem to life in TWO-MILLION POUNDS of hand-carved ice. ICE! will be larger than ever before featuring an all-new bonus scene: "Christmas in New York City." The attraction moves to a new location this year with access from inside the hotel's 19-story atrium.
What is ICE!?
At the Gaylord National Resort at National Harbor, visitors step inside a winter wonderland created entirely of 5,000 BLOCKS of ice weighing 2 MILLION POUNDS of hand-sculpted by 40 international artisans and kept at a chilling nine degrees Fahrenheit. Produced exclusively for Gaylord Hotels, the attraction is fully interactive, allowing guests to roam inside, around and on-top of holiday scenes. See Photos of ICE! at the Gaylord National Resort
The indoor, walk-through attraction is housed in an enormous 15,000 square feet structure that is specially constructed and thickly insulated to help maintain its internal temperature of nine degrees. To stay comfortable inside, guests are loaned oversized winter coats to wear. It gets pretty chilly, so be sure to bring a hat and a pair of gloves.
