Ice! at the Gaylord Palms resort has an all-new theme this year: Shrek the Halls, featuring everyone’s favorite giant green orgre, his wife Fiona, Donkey, Puss in Boots, Gingy, and all their other friends. The colorful ice sculptures follow the story of how Shrek learns how to celebrate Christmas. You’ll also meet many of your favorite Dreamworks characters in person.
But although most of the exhibit is new, there are still two parts that multi-year Ice! fans will recognize. First, and perhaps most fun, the ice slides are back for a slip-sliding ride. Click the video at left for an overview of the ice sculptures and a peek at the slides.
Second, fans of the nativity that traditionally caps the exhibit is back in all its glory. In contrast to the bright colors in the Shrek part of the display, the nativity is rendered in crystal-clear ice. You can see this grand finale in the photo at left. Click here for Ice! ticket information.
