A group of residents and staff from Signature’s Chesapeake Shores, in Lexington Park, Maryland, recently visited Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center to view the hotel’s ICE! exhibit.
The theme for this year’s ICE! display was DreamWorks’ Shrek The Halls.
ICE! is an interactive attraction that consists of 5,000 blocks of ice, weighing more than 2 million pounds. The blocks are hand-sculpted by 40 artisans from Harbin, China, which is known for its annual Harbin International Snow and Ice Festival.
The exhibit is housed in a 15,000-square-foot structure that is built and insulated to maintain a temperature of nine degrees. Guests are loaned heavy coats to wear inside.
