Nov. 12, 2009 - Jan. 3, 2010 - ICE! and Lone Star Christmas (Grapevine, TX)
BThe thrilling, chilling, one-of-a-kind holiday attraction ICE! returns to Gaylord Texan Resort for the 2009 Christmas season... and this time, we're bringing one of the country's most-loved children's tales — the Dr. Seuss classic, How The Grinch Stole Christmas! This icy attraction is part of Gaylord Texan's annual Lone Star Christmas celebration, which includes a wide variety of holiday events and activities. This year, ICE! tells the story of The Grinch by recreating cherished scenes from the book in intricately carved, larger-than-life, interactive ice sculptures set in a walk-through world of ice. Some of the sculptures weigh in at more than two tons each. From The Grinch's frozen mountaintop lair... to the 20-foot-high ice slides... to built-in photo opportunity stops... right down to the picturesque Who-ville, complete with smoking chimneys and feasting Whos... ICE! Returning to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for its sixth season, our 2009 Lone Star Christmas is bringing back fan favorites, including a 50-foot rotating Christmas tree, magical train sets, a life-sized gingerbread house, and 1.5 million twinkling lights.
