Step inside a real-life winter wonderland Christmas attraction with 'A Christmas Story at ICE!

Located at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, ICE! is an incredible dreamland sculpted from two million pounds of delightfully colored ice enclosed in a 40,000 square-foot refrigerated events center! This festive event is a must-see for families in the Nashville area during the holiday season, and this year guests will experience the delight of walking through the classic Christmas show, A Christmas Story, depicted in sculptured ice.

Explore the fantastic retelling of the famous Christmas classic as created by talented artisans! Beloved scenes from the story are brought to life through brilliant ice sculptures in this incredible holiday attraction. You'll see famous scenes such as the flagpole dare and watch the incredible artists creating sculptures in the ice carving zone.

You'll also be treated to a traditional nativity scene, created entirely of sparkling crystal clear ice.  And you can even choose to slip down a two-story ice slide if you're feeling up to it.

Created from two million pounds of ice, ICE! is a hands-on, whimsical winter attraction where guests will be amazed by brilliantly colored, three-dimensional ice sculptures! Keeping guests warm throughout this incredible ice palace, ICE! supplies complimentary parkas with hoods.

Adults and children alike will enjoy the wonderment of this frosty holiday attraction, so don’t miss out on your opportunity to enjoy ICE! at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center!

On the Blocks ICE! Bar

Adults 21 and up will enjoy this whimsical bar that serves up some of the best chilled alcoholic beverages. Experience the unique ambience of the On the Blocks ICE! Bar alongside fantastic music and one-of-a-kind photo opportunities while you treat your tastebuds to a sample of Johnny Appleseed's sweet cider, poured through the channel of a cold ice luge. It's even gluten-free! If cider isn't your thing, try the special Block Buster drink and take the souvenir glass home with you. 

Appropriate Dress

As the activity is only 9 degrees Fahrenheit, all guests are provided with calf-length, hooded parkas to keep them warm, and these are available in all sizes, including children and infants. Long pants and closed-toe shoes are required, but boots are not necessary, as all pathways are carpeted. For your convenience, wear comfortable walking shoes. Bare feet, stocking feet, sandals, slick-soled shoes, high-heeled shoes, and all other footwear that is inappropriate for cold slippery surfaces should not be worn on the optional ice slides. 

Wheelchairs and strollers are permitted at this activity!

This was one of the most amazing events i have attended. Sure it was cold but well worth it. The colors and detail were second to none. I would recommend everyone young and old who knows the story to take your friends or family.

"Ice was awesome!"
Ice was awesome! I had no idea what to expect but it is better than anyone can describe. We took our children age 7, 13 and 20 and everyone loved it. It is truly magical. The slide is icing on the cake and the nativity scene at the end brought tears to my eyes.

We discovered this 3 years ago and my kids (9 and 6) want to come every year. We drive down for the day, about 4 hours, just to do this. It is a unique, fun experience. We love the ice slide and different theme each year! Thanks for doing this! The gaylord is beautiful to stay and eat afterwards or at the underwater restaurant at the mall behind ice! Great time!
