Today my mother, my daughter and I went to ICE at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine. If it’s called something more than ICE I don’t know. Anyway, in a previous post I balked at the price of the tickets ($20) to see it, or I should say, ‘experience it’. I think I’m still balking, but only a little. Actually it was quite impressive. . . and unlike anything I’ve ever done. First we put on these heavy coats to wear during our walk through it. As we’re getting ready to go in I say something to a worker about how they must always be cold, working there like that. She said, ‘yes, they keep it at 9 degrees in there. I could hardly believe it. 9 degrees!! Then when we were in there it FELT like 9 degrees. Fortunately there was no wind chill factor!
There were some beautiful ice sculptures. The first room was a Santa motif, the second was a nativitiy scene with a huge beautiful angel, and the third room was filled with darling penguins, and 2 slides that people could go down (we didn’t). Everything was made in ice. And yes it was pretty impressive.
I don’t know if I’ll go next year, though. Well, unless they charge about $12, or less.
