Interested in seeing Dr. Seuss’s famous characters the Grich or Cindy Lou Hoo come to life? From Nov. 15 through Dec. 30, you can see life-sized ice sculptures of these beloved storybook characters at ICE! at the Gaylord National Resort. The main attraction is more than 2 million pounds of hand-carved and hand-colored ice sculptures that you can admire from every angle. Your ticket entitles you to a self-guided walk-through tour of the Grinch and Hooville scenes (it’ll probably take you about 30 minutes to see all the ice sculptures) before heading over to the popular ice slides. Kids are welcome to take as many turns on the two-story slides as they want before everyone retreats to the cocoa shop for something sweet.
Be aware that the whole area is maintained as a frosty 9 degrees, so be make sure to dress warmly!
