Christmas at Gaylord Hotels

For those seeking out the “coolest” ways to kick the Christmas season into high gear, Gaylord Hotels’ signature holiday attraction is sure to impress.

ICE!, which anchors the holiday festivities at Gaylord Hotels’ four massive resorts, is back and bigger than ever in 2013 with more than 2 million pounds of ice carvings at each location and new themes depicting scenes straight out of classic holiday tales.

“ICE! is kept at 9 degrees with 10-inch-thick walls, and visitors are given warm parkas to wear as they walk through,” said Warren Lyng, director of special events for Gaylord Hotels. “We’ve made it our goal to be among the country’s ‘coolest’ holiday attractions, and it’s fun to see families identifying us that way.”

Gaylord Opryland’s A Country Christmas in Nashville, Tenn., and Christmas at Gaylord Palms in Kissimmee, Fla., near Orlando, can join everyone’s favorite snowman and his friends on their quest to the North Pole in a colorfully frozen retelling of Frosty the Snowman™.

At Gaylord Texan’s Lone Star Christmas in Grapevine, Texas, near Dallas, favorite scenes from The Nutcracker will come to life, accompanied by the original Tchaikovsky score, in a magical adventure with Clara and her Nutcracker Prince. In addition, the resort will feature a giant 8-lane indoor snow tubing hill made with real snow.

At Gaylord National’s Christmas on the Potomac in National Harbor, Md., near Washington, D.C., we will see Ma in her kerchief, Pa in his cap and Saint Nick with his eight reindeer in scenes from the classic holiday poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.

A series of inter-connected rooms features breathtaking larger-than-life, 3-D sculpted ice pieces, including fantastic recreations of beloved characters, two-story tall ice slides and memorable holiday scenes. The awe-inspiring experience concludes with the wonder of the Nativity of crystal clear ice.


ICE! opens mid-November and runs through early January. Group outings and holiday parties at ICE! also are available and guaranteed to give “chills.” There is no cooler place to “pop the question” than with a wedding proposal package inside ICE!

Tickets and holiday getaway packages are on sale now. For more information, please visit online.
