The ICE Kingdom

It takes an international team of artisans, thousands of tons of ice, and hundreds of hours at the drawing table each year to create ICE.  Produced by Marriott Hotels and International Special Attractions, these mind-blowing exhibits have become a must-see holiday tradition.

Seen by millions of people around the Globe, The Ice Kingdom is a 15,000 sq foot frozen wonderland made entirely out of Ice. Gigantic ice sculptures of buildings, animals, people and places are beautifully recreated by an International team of expert ice carvers.  Over 2 million pounds of ice are used in each ice exhibition and the ice sculptures are internally lit by state of the art LED lighting design. It’s not just transparent ice that is used but every imaginable color is carved into this towering ice attraction that is up to 40 feet high.  Refrigerated to a chilly -5 Centigrade the visitors are given Parka Jackets as they walk through the beautifully created ice experience. The ice sculptures are reproduced with such incredible detail that they have to be seen to be believed.
