It’s Burrr-ific!

ICE! is back for another great season and features DreamWorks’ Shrek the Halls. It’s also a part of the DreamWorks Experience package.

If you haven’t seen the movie, don’t worry. These magnificent sculptures formed out of 2 million pounds of ice help depict several scenes from the movie. Oh, and you can’t forget the favorite … 20-foot ice slides!

But, before you enter this fantastic exhibit, you get to see a short film to get a behind-the-scenes look at how the 40 artisans from Harbin, China created each of the brightly colored sculptures.

These larger-than-life characters are a little daunting at first as their size is incomparable to something you see everyday. It’s sometimes a little hard for the children to contain all their excitement to see everything. But, you really want to take your time and enjoy each and every one of these hand-crafted sculptures. There was a lot of hard work and dedication put into each one of them and the result is remarkable!

We always bundle up before we go, just to stay extra warm. Don’t worry, they do provide parkas for the entire family … even our 2-year-old had one that fit him. So, don those big, blue coats to keep warm, take a group photo and then enjoy the exhibit!
