Chill at the Queen Mary
*I attended The Queen Mary’s Chill with media tickets. All thoughts and opinions remain my own.*
Chill at the Queen Mary, in beautiful Long Beach is back this holiday season! Looking for a fun place to go chill out at? Then come check this place out! With a special promo code (CHBLOG02) for special $26.99 tickets, (see more info below,) there’s no reason not to go and have some chilly fun with the ice and snow.
Chill is transforming over two million pounds of sparkling, colorful ice into larger-than-life, hand-carved ice sculptures in the 13,000 square-foot Igloo called The Ice Kingdom which is located inside the Queen Mary’s Dome, formerly home to the legendary Spruce Goose. The Ice Kingdom is featuring a California holiday theme complete with breaking waves, dancing dolphins and a Surfing Santa. Get lost in the life size candy cane forest, explore the penguin village and slip down three ice slides off of a 30’ high replica of The Queen Mary’s bow.
These hand carved wonders are created by an international team of expert ice sculptures from Harbin, China and enhanced with LED lighting to create a visually awing experience like no other. The Ice Kingdom is kept at a frosty nine degrees Fahrenheit to preserve the ice and guests will receive parkas to help protect against the frozen temperatures.
If that’s not thrilling enough for you, then try ice tubing! With six lanes of glistening ice slides standing two stories tall and 100-feet long in front of the Ice Kingdom, you are in for a wild ride down the ice. Or try ice skating under the stars on the 6,500 square-foot outdoor ice skating rink with a view of the picturesque Queen Mary. A holiday village filled with gingerbread houses, holiday carolers, Candy Cane Lane and Santa Clause will fill you with some good old holiday cheer.
