The sucky thing about Snowpocalypse 2011 was that all of the Dallas area screeched to a halt for a few days. Sure, everything was nice and pretty outside, all covered in that rarity called snow, but it was next to impossible to go anywhere, much less do anything fun, so kids all around town were stuck building snow people in their backyards and wishing their parents had invested in a good snowmobile. Well, before the year’s over you owe the kids some fun in the snow, so head up to Grapevine for a winter wonderland. Carrying on the tradition that has earned Grapevine the title of “The Christmas Capital of Texas,” Lone Star Christmas presents this year’s snow spectacular event, The Dreamworks Kung Fu Panda Awesome Snow Tubing. Covered in real snow, the Kung Fu Panda tubing hill has eight lanes of fun for the whole family to enjoy. Tube yourselves awesome Sunday through December 31 in the Longhorn Exhibit Hall B at Gaylord Texan, 1501 Gaylord Trail. $15.95-$34.95. Call 817-778-3000 or visit gaylordtexan.com.
Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Starts: Nov. 20. Continues through Dec. 31, 2011
