In This Section

See Ma in her kerchief, Pa in his cap and more as the classic holiday poem, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, is brought to life in 2 million pounds of colorful ice sculptures. Take a ride down a two-story-tall ice slide. Watch artisans from Harbin, China carve amazing ice sculptures before your eyes at the Frostbite Factory - our NEW live carving zone. This awe-inspiring experience concludes with the wonder and majesty of a full Nativity in stunning, crystal clear ice. It is all part of A Country Christmas at Gaylord Opryland.
