Once again this year the Gaylord Palms hotel in the Orlando area will be hosting the Gaylord ICE show 2010. So just what is the ICE at Gaylord Palms show all about?
Well let me explain. Each year around the Holidays Gaylord Palms sets up an enormous tent outside the hotel. In fact it’s around 18,000 square feet big! Then they cool it down to only 9 degrees!
Next they truck in two million pounds of specially made ice blocks into the tent for the ICE at Gaylord Palms show. Some are crystal clear, while others are colored.
Then a team of 40 artisans from Harbin, China travel to Orlando. They are master ice carvers, and they spend a month working around the clock in shifts transforming the ice blocks into a lit up, colored Christmas landscape for the Gaylord ICE show 2010!
This year’s theme is the classic ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas story. There will be dozens of full size scenes from the story made from ice. It’s amazing to see how they make so many beautiful scenes all from ice.
The ICE at Gaylord Palms show will have some exhibits made from clear ice and lit up inside, while others will be very colorful with many different colored ice blocks.
There will be a duel 30 foot ice slide, a giant lit up Christmas tree, Christmas light show, classic Christmas music and much more. Gaylord ICE show 2010 is well worth seeing as it’s a one of a kind event.
Now, here’s a few things you need to know if you go. It’s kept at 9 Fahrenheit inside, which is really cold! They do give out hooded, over-sized winter coats for everyone to wear, including kids sizes.
Closed-toe shoes and long pants are required to see the ICE at Gaylord Palms show. Hats and gloves are not required but strongly recommended and you can buy them in the ICE! house gift shop.
I highly recommend you go to this years Gaylord ICE show 2010. Seeing all that crafted, lit up and colored ice is amazing. More details about the ICE at Gaylord Palms show is below. Check it out!
