The ICE! Experience
The ICE! experience will give guests and visitors alike an opportunity to visit a whimsical winter wonderland of interactive environments; larger-than-life, three-dimensional ice monuments; and colorful ice sculptures - many of which are more than 25 feet in length.
This icy exhibit is created from 1.5 million pounds of ice and is kept at a chilly 9 degrees. ICE! blends amazing frozen creations with thrilling ice slides, all enhanced by dramatic lighting and special effects. To stay comfortable throughout this "frozen fountain of youth," guests are issued complimentary warm parkas with hoods.
ICE! is the creation of 35 dedicated artisans from Harbin, China. The talented team spends nearly an entire month in Nashville creating this one-of-a-kind attraction. The resulting handiwork includes beloved holiday figures including Santa and Mrs. Claus; frolicking snowmen; and heavenly angels, many weighing more than two tons.
ICE! provides an unusual and exciting addition to Gaylord Opryland's A Country Christmas. This unique attraction has garnered national recognition from USA TODAY, The New York Times, Southern Living magazine, and Travel + Leisure magazine.
