As I look back, I realize we have gone to Gaylord Texan’s Lone Star ICE! for the past 9 years. Though I only have a record of a few visits on my blog, we have had many more years of fun there. I wanted to share our 9 Years of Gaylord Texan’s Lone Star ICE! with you.
>>>> 2019 Update. I’ve added some years to my post here!! We are still enjoying Christmas at Gaylord Texan. It’s now been twelve (12) years we’ve spent visiting ICE!
Gaylord Texan is the best place I can think of to start a Family Tradition. I suppose after visiting here for almost twelve years straight; I can indeed call it Our Family Tradition.
9 Years of Gaylord Texan’s Lone Star ICE!
My family has been going to ICE since 2007 (maybe earlier), and it’s pretty amazing. You have to bundle up in a big coat (parka) that they provide, and you can slide down a giant ice slide. It’s family-friendly all around. ICE! Themes change every year, and it merely gets more amazing each year. You can grab a hot chocolate and pick up a few souvenirs in their Christmas shop. This year they even have a Build-A-Bear station where you can get your favorite plush animal stuffed. And the tubes (more ice slides) seemed even longer and more fun than previous years. Christmastime at the Gaylord is a must!
2019 – Charlie Brown Christmas
Lone Star ICE! is longer and stronger and gets better year after year!! They brought back Charlie Brown this year because it’s everyone’s favorite (according to a pole that was taken), so they brought back this courageous kid and his friends.
We celebrated my son’s 10th birthday with ICE!, snow tubing and ice skating and delicious hot chocolate!!
I actually went three times this year. Once with the kids, another time with friends, and the third time with my husband and son. Do you think I like ICE! I think so.
