An experience like no other, CHILL transforms over two million pounds of sparkling ice into larger than life hand carved colorful ice sculptures in the 14,000 square-foot Igloo called The Ice Kingdom, located inside the Queen Mary’s Dome, formerly home to the legendary Spruce Goose. The Ice Kingdom will feature a California holiday theme complete with breaking waves, dancing dolphins, and a Surfing Santa. Frozen scenes from The Nutcracker will adorn The Ice Kingdom with walk-through castles and sugar plum fairies. Get lost in the life size candy cane forest, explore the penguin village, and slip down three ice slides off of a 30’ high replica of The Queen Mary.

A holiday village will offer gingerbread houses, holiday carolers, the decoration adorned Candy Lane, and a visit with Santa Claus.
