Ice! Charlie Brown Christmas

Hey, ya’ll! 

So I went to Ice! at the Gaylord Texan resort in Grapevine, Texas. The theme this year was Charlie Brown Christmas. It’s a tradition to watch that every December. Even if I can’t find it on the tv, I own the Charlie Brown holiday specials, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown(Halloween), A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and A Charlie Brown Christmas, on DVD. 

The ice sculptures were amazing! I took pictures of all of the sculptures, right at the end, my phone lost all battery power. It was 9 degrees F in there to keep the sculptures from melting. They gave us parkas, which I will admit, when the website said visitors would be given parkas, I was expecting actual parkas, not flimsy blue lab coats. My body was kept warm, as I was wearing jeans and a long-sleeved shirt under the blue ‘parka’ but my hands were cold, as I forgot to bring gloves as they recommended and I was taking pictures. My face was numb within about 15 minutes as I wasn’t about to put that hood up on my head. Who knows who all has worn those parkas since they were washed, and how well-washed they were. My hair is one of my favorite physical features. But even if I had put the hood up, my face would have still been numb. 

Below are the pictures that I took. 

There are quite a few as the Ice display went through the entire movie from beginning to end. There was a surprise nativity and Angel scenes at the end but my phone died just before then. IT’s back to normal, for hte most part, so I think it just got too cold. Even when it does get that cold here in Texas, I don’t have it out in it beyond my pocket or purse so it’s not used to those conditions.

Now, each scene had their own room. The play rehearsal room actually had a large ice slide in it that kids and adults could go down. I did not as, 1) I didn’t trust the parka to stay under me and keep my butt dry and 2) the shoes I was wearing are old and worn and don’t have very good traction on wet ground, much less on ice. Charlie Brown’s scene was at the top of the slide while the other characters were gathered around it.

So that was Ice! The amount of color and detail in every character was Amazing. If you are in the DFW area, I definitely recommend checking it out. It isn’t that expensive, though buying your ticket online makes it even cheaper. The theme changes every year so don’t count on Peanuts still being there next year. 

 

‘Til Next Time, Friends!
