A Christmas tradition is set to return to the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine. The 16th annual ICE! holiday attraction is currently under construction at the resort located at 1501 Gaylord Trail, Grapevine.

On Tuesday, Oct. 22, the resort hosted a sneak peek of the making of the ice sculptures. Forty professional ice carvers traveled from Harbin, China, to the Gaylord Texan, where they spend 30 days carving the ice into life-size sculptures and scenes.

When the attraction opens, guests will be able to walk through a 17,500-square-foot exhibit featuring more than 2 million pounds of ice, transformed into works of art.

The temperature inside the exhibit hall sits at 9 degrees, so guests are encouraged to dress warmly, though heavy parkas will be provided. In addition to the ice sculptures, guests will find ice slides, snow tubes, shopping and more.

The attraction is set to open Nov. 15 and will run through Jan. 4. Tickets start at $14.99 for children and $23.99 for adults.
