MOODY GARDENS OFFERS FIRST GLIMPSE INSIDE ICE LAND: RAINFOREST HOLIDAY


Rainforest Pyramid, porcupine and turtle island greet guests as they enter ultra-cool attraction
GALVESTON, Texas (October 12, 2017) – Moody Gardens offered a sneak peek inside Scene One of ICE LAND: Rainforest Holiday Thursday, featuring the first of many giant ice scenes guests will find as they enter inside this ultra-cool magical holiday attraction.

With only 29 days left until the opening of ICE LAND on Nov. 11, a team of 25 master ice carvers from Harbin, China are hard at work transforming two million pounds of ice into monkeys, beautiful birds, colorful butterflies, flowers and so much more.

As guests are transported to rainforests from around the world, one of the first sculptures they will see is a clear ice Rainforest Pyramid, illuminated green from the inside with Christmas lights along the spines, much like what the real Moody Gardens Rainforest Pyramid looks like during the holiday season. The sculpture sets the scene for this year’s Rainforest Holiday theme, but also provides the perfect photo opp for family and friends who want to capture their time inside ICE LAND.

In Scene One, guests are introduced to the spectacular leaf cutter ants, which act as hosts along this breathtaking journey, carrying Christmas lights, ornaments and other decorations.

Thanks to an ice magnifying glass, these leaf cutter ants and many animals inside ICE LAND are larger than life. Working swiftly with chainsaws and ice picks, members of the CAA Ruijing Ice Carving Team are also creating animals including a porcupine, turtle island, giant river otters, ocelot, birds and fish.

“We are excited to watch as this year’s Rainforest Holiday theme comes to life. The ice carvers are able to draw inspiration from our own Rainforest Pyramid, which showcases thousands of plants and animals from the rainforests of the world,” John Zendt, Moody Gardens president and CEO, said. “We’re thrilled ICE LAND and our other holiday attractions have become traditions for some many. Moody Gardens is a magical place where families can make lasting memories.”

The inspiration for ICE LAND came from the Harbin Snow and Ice Festival in China, where more than 3,000 of the world’s top artisans create a 100-acre walk-through Ice Park featuring thousands of immense ice sculptures.

The team is led by chief ice and snow carving artist Mr. Qui Guanghui, who has received top honors in numerous international tournaments including the Harbin International Ice and Snow Carving and the Chinese National Ice Carving Competition.

Although ICE LAND is on a smaller scale, the artistry work presents its own unique challenges on Galveston Island, including keeping a 28,000 square-foot insulated tent structure at a chilly 9 degrees in order to keep those two million pounds of ice frozen.

“My team is very much looking forward to working on this new project,” said Guanghui, who added that the Rainforest Holiday design for 2017 is unlike anything the team has done before. “The plan includes creating a magnifying glass that will make these rainforest animals and plants even larger than they are. We are excited to take these plans from paper to ice.”

Also taking shape is Shivers Ice Bar, returning with a Mayan Ruins theme this season and the Giant Ruins Ice Slide – measuring 36 feet tall – that allows guests to soar from the tree tops to the Rainforest Floor starting with an 8-foot tall Harpy Eagle at the top of the slide.

Go behind the scenes of ICE LAND: Rainforest Holiday with the Ice Carver VIP Experience. This exclusive tour – available through Nov. 5, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. – gives guests a chance to see the artists at work as they create these magnificent, towering ice sculptures, resulting in the coolest holiday attraction in the Southwest.

The VIP experience includes a 45-minute penguin encounter where guests will meet a real penguin inside the Aquarium Pyramid. They’ll return to enjoy an authentic Chinese meal with the ice carver team, which will answer any questions from the guests. The Ice Carver VIP Experience package has limited availability. Please call 409-683-4368 for reservations.

ICE LAND, along with Festival of Lights, the ice rink, Arctic Slide, holiday 3D films, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer 4D and more will offer a unique holiday experience Nov. 11-Jan. 7, 2018 as Galveston makes its transition into the Winter Wonder Land. Value Days discounts will allow guests to save $5 per person Sunday-Thursday, Nov. 12-Dec. 14, excluding Thanksgiving.

For more information call 1-800-582-4673 or visit www.moodygardens.org and click over to the Holiday page for more on this holiday season and ticketing information.

Moody Gardens® is a public, non-profit, educational destination utilizing nature in the advancement of rehabilitation, conservation, recreation, and research.
