November 18, 2011 - January 3, 2012 | Gaylord Opryland Events Center
Gaylord Opryland's popular ICE! event is returning this year with an all-new theme! Our ICE! artisans will be bringing DreamWorks Animation's Merry Madagascar to Nashville in the form of 2 million pounds of larger-than-life colorful ice sculptures and incredible 20-foot-tall ice slides! Relive the story of how Alex the Lion and his friends saved Christmas after Santa and his reindeer crash onto the island of Madagascar. ICE! is hand carved by 40 artisans from Harbin China who will be arriving in Nashville early fall. They are very excited to be working with our new Merry Madagascar theme, and so are we! ICE!—which is sponsored by Delta Dental—will be bigger than ever in the new 40,000-square-foot Gaylord Opryland Events Center. There's even an exciting new pre-show experience where you can get a behind-the-scenes look at how ICE! is created.
