During the Christmas holiday, Moody Gardens goes all out. You'll forget you're on a gorgeous island, and get lost in the magical winter wonderland they created. November 11, 2017 through January 4, 2018, your family can explore tons of incredible ice sculptures. The 2017 Rainforest Holiday : Ice Land at Moody Gardens is a "must see" attraction!

Master ice carvers are flown-in all the way from Harbin, China to sculpt specially frozen blocks of ice into amazing creations. Every year, the theme changes, so you'll never see the same scultures twice. This year features the animals and tropical paradise that makes up the world's greatest natural treasure: the rain forest. Below is a look at several ice carvings inside the all-new 2017 Rainforest Ice Land:

Inside the all-new Ice Land attraction is Shiver's ice bar, hundreds of one-of-a-kind beautiful ice carvings, and ice slides. For ice to stay intact, it's gotta be cold right? How about nine degrees? Make sure you dress warm!
