Gaylord Texan Announces ICE Theme for 2017

The cool news we’ve all been waiting for while enduring the blistering heat is here – Gaylord Texan has announced the theme for ICE 2017…”Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Featuring 2 million pounds of chiseled ice, the fun begins on November 10!


Master Chinese ice artisans will transform the 14,000-square-foot space into a winter wonderland (pack your mittens). Along with annual favorites like the On the Blocks ice bar for the 21-plus crowd and five two-story tall ice slides for young and old alike, we’re expecting Ma in her kerchief and Pa in his cap.


To top it off, a magnificently-sculpted nativity scene, 2 million lights and a 54-foot Christmas tree with 15,000 ornaments will usher each visitor into the Christmas season.


At a frosty 9 degrees to preserve the ice sculptures (which sounds delightful right about now), be sure to bundle up and take advantage of the calf-length parka included with admission.


Mark your calendars and join us in longing for a winter chill!


Nov. 10, 2017 – Jan. 1, 2018 at Gaylord Texan Resort, 1501 Gaylord Trail, Grapevine. For more information, visit
