Merry Madagascar on ICE! at Gaylord Palms

Gaylord palms ICE! show 2012

If you love ice sculptures, Dreamworks’ Madagascar, or just plain old family fun, then you will want to bring your family to Gaylord Palms for this year’s ICE! show featuring DreamWorks’ Merry Madagascar presented by Coca-Cola.

This is a one-of-a-kind event that will thrill and awe children of any age with the artistry and imagination it takes to produce these incredible ice sculptures.

The scene is laid out on 20,000 square feet of space, featuring hand-carved ice sculptures including two-story tall ice slides and a tribute to DreamWorks’ animated Merry Madagascar and all the fun and charismatic characters that you have come to love.

You and your children will be able to revisit the story of how Alex the Lion and his zoo animal friends save Christmas. As you walk through the spectacle, you will be amazed at the detail and likenesses of each individual sculpture.

What a perfect way to thaw out from the hot Florida sun as you chill to a balmy 9 degrees Fahrenheit and take in this luminescent Christmas show. ICE! is an award-winning display created by 40 artisans from Harbin, China.

These artists take over two million pounds of ice, and an entire month’s full of work, and turn it into a playground of delights for you and your family to enjoy.

Harbin is known for its International Ice and Snow Festival which brings 2000 ice sculptors to the town to create a 100-acre ice park.

Appropriate clothing must be worn to tour the ICE! show. Wear closed toe shoes and long pants to the show. If you need them, you can borrow hooded coats inside.

Do not miss this awesome show, open daily from November 10, 2012 through January 1, 2013, including holidays.
