The Queen Mary is thrilled to present CHILL – an enchanting winter event for the whole family! They’ve turned their dome into a giant igloo, which is now home to The Ice Kingdom – an awe-inspiring exhibit featuring larger-than-life ice creations.
In addition, CHILL also features an outdoor Ice Skating rink, Ice Tubing, and a Holiday Village, complete with Christmas trees, “Candy Lane,” gingerbread decorating, carolers, and, of course, Santa Claus.
Last season their giant dome – once home to the legendary Spruce Goose – was frozen over and transformed into a giant igloo and home to The Ice Kingdom with ice creations towering over 2.5 stories tall and used more than two million pounds of ice.
The Ice Kingdom – The Story of the Nutcracker
Step inside their frozen igloo and immerse yourself in an enchanting world of ice and enjoy the dazzling story of The Nutcracker – handmade entirely out of ice. Their 13,000 square foot winter wonderland features over two million pounds of ice as each exhibit is meticulously created by an international team of expert ice sculptors and enhanced with stunning lights and colors for a visually captivating experience unlike any other. This holiday season, The Ice Kingdom allows you to be a part of The Nutcracker story, following little Clara and her Nutcracker through her adventures on one cold Christmas Eve Night as they battle the Mouse King and his army. But don’t forget to grab a parka and gloves – temperatures drop to a numbing 9-degrees in their igloo.
Outdoor Ice Skating
Enjoy a perfect Southern California night by going on a yuletide glide at the Queen Mary’s world class 6,500 square-foot outdoor ice rink. Feel the crisp Pacific Ocean air dance on your face while you bunny hop, swizzle, and twizzle your way across their outdoor rink. Located in front of the ship and built with real ice, the majestic Queen Mary provides a stunning backdrop for a winter tradition that is not to be missed. Experience the holidays the way they were intended…on ice.
The newest mountain for wintery fun in Southern California is now at the Queen Mary. It’s cold. It’s fast. It stands at two stories tall, 100-feet long., and it’s made entirely out of ice! While the view from the peak of the ice slide may be dazzling, the real thrill occurs on the way down. Grab an oversized tube and feel the chill as you barrel down at bone-chilling speeds. Reach the peak of excitement in this brr—eath-taking adventure.
