Ice Palace

November 6 - December 24

Inspired by the magic of winter, the Ice Palace features a 30-foot globe encircled with majestic arches and smaller globes that appear to be carved from ice.  Visitors will delight in the magical vignettes of frolicking polar bears and, upon entering the largest dome, see and feel falling snow and a captivating video and light show.  Before leaving the Ice Palace, visitors will have the opportunity to have their photo taken on the Ice Throne and with the big guy himself. Each visitor also receives a gift just for visiting.
