CHILL is back at the Queen Mary: November 22nd - Jan 5th

Disclosure: I will be attending a CHILL media event with my family. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I am so excited that this event at The Queen Mary is back again!
We missed it last year and when I saw all the great pictures of my friends enjoying
all the amazing CHILL-y fun that CHILL has to offer I was kicking myself.

 The giant dome next to the Queen Mary - which used to be home to the Spruce Goose - 
is transformed into an amazing igloo and becomes the home of The Ice Kingdom.
This winter wonderland features ice creations that tower over 2.5 stories tall and use more
 This year The Ice Kingdom transports guests into The Nutcracker Story.

Even though I've never been, I have it on good authority that you will need to bring
your gloves, scarves, wool socks and beanies because temperatures in The Ice Kingdom
drop to a CHILL-y 9 degrees to keep The Ice Kingdom looking pristine.
Guests will receive parkas to protect them from the frigid climate, but be sure you
also dress warmly. This isn't a flip flops and Bermudas kind of event.

In addition to the The Ice Kingdom, activities during the CHILL festivities also include:

Ice Tubing 
Guests 45" and taller can grab a giant tube and race down one of six ice slides
standing two stories tall and 100-feet long.

Ice Skating
Rent skates for $2.95 and glide around the 6,000  square foot ice skating rink
and let your inner Chazz Michael Michaels out for the world to see.

Holiday Village
Gingerbread houses, holiday carolers, and Santa Claus, oh my! That's what visitors
will find in the holiday village, along with Candy Lane, the world's largest rocking horse,
and a snowman bouncy house. It's fun for all!

November 22nd - January 5th
10 a.m. to 11 p.m.
3-11 p.m. Dec. 3-5; 10-12 & 17-19
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Dec. 31
CLOSED Dec. 2, 9 & 16 

Admission prices vary - depending on date and if you purchase online,
so visit The Queen Mary Chill site for accurate pricing and for special charges
for additional tickets for the ice skating or ice tubing.
I've also seen ticket deals on Groupon and Living Social, so be sure to check out
those sites too!
