We were invited to the Gaylord Texan to experience the Lone Star Christmas festivities and see, firsthand, what makes ICE  the crowd-puller year after year. Arena B was kind enough to represent Mommy Snippets and share her experience at the Lone Star Christmas At The Gaylord Texan Featuring ICE! All opinions on the same are her own and have not been influenced.

Lone Star Christmas at the Gaylord Texan

Lone Star Christmas at the Gaylord Texan is a must during the holiday season in Dallas. And this year, it’s even bigger and better than ever!

ICE! is such a cool and unique experience. Don a blue parka and walk into a display featuring 2 million pounds of ice carved into beautiful masterpieces. Artisans from China work for months to create intricate sculptures.

It’s so cool — literally! They have to keep the exhibit at a chilling 9 degrees to preserve the sculptures.

There are also six slides made entirely of ice — my son LOVED it!

He also loved exploring all the tunnels and nooks inside the exhibit — they make it so fun for little ones!
