Nine Degrees of Separation

Baby, it’s not cold outside. I’m sorry, I know you’re real excited about putting on those fur-lined boots and that cable-knit sweater. And dang, that NorthFace jacket you’re still paying off hasn’t even seen daylight this holiday season. So, you know what? I’m gonna take you to some seriously chilly temperatures — how does nine degrees sound? And do you think two million pounds of ice might help numb those fingers a bit? Well, good. Bundle up the kiddos and we’ll winter wonderland until we’re practically hypothermic at the Gaylord Texan’s ICE! Featuring Dreamworks Merry Madagascar. We’ll walk into a giant freezer where insanely detailed and colorful ice sculptures create a scene of Christmas magic that will warm your frosty little heart. Then we’ll let loose on the ice slides — it’s like tobogganing straight up on your buttcheeks! We’ll just need to head up to Grapevine — 1501 Gaylord Trail, specifically — Sundays through Thursdays between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. Get tickets online at Tickets are free for the 3-and-younger set; $11.95 to $14.95 for kids ages 4 to 12; $19.95 to $23.95 for seniors and military; and $21.95 to $26.95 for adults. You didn’t think all that air conditioning came for free, did you?
