ICE! and Lone Star Christmas
The Gaylord Texan Resort brings the magic of a winter wonderland indoors with its annual ICE! exhibit, featuring more than 2 million pounds of ice hand carved by a team of Chinese artisans. You’ll pile on a heavy parka (provided, but bring a pair of gloves) and stroll through a maze of themed ice sculptures throughout a 14,000-square-foot exhibit hall kept at a numbing 9 degrees. Think 2 million pounds of ice carved, by more than 40 ice sculptors, into symbols of Christmas and well-known, holiday animated characters.
There are also huge ice slides to ride down. ICE! also boasts one-and-a-half million twinkling lights, 12,000 ornaments, a 52-foot-tall rotating Christmas tree, and a life-sized gingerbread house. The temperature inside the exhibit is a chilly 9 degrees so make sure everyone is dressed warmly.

The Elf on the Shelf® Scavenger Hunt
Guests will need to put on their thinking caps for The Elf on the Shelf® Scavenger Hunt, an interactive adventure through the resort. Ten of Santa’s scout elf helpers have landed at Gaylord Texan, but they won’t be able to fly to the North Pole until they have a name. By solving puzzles and finding all of the elves hiding around the hotel, kids will reveal the elves’ names so they can report back to Santa. All families that complete this enchanting scavenger hunt will win a special prize.
Admission: $12 per map. Maps can be purchased at the Concierge desk.
