The Queen Mary’s CHILL Extended Until January 12
2014-01-06 · By Editor
The Queen Mary has announced that CHILL will continue to cool Southern California and remain open with additional dates through January 12. Now guests can enjoy the winter wonderland, admire majestic ice sculptures, enjoy Arctic activities, and take in spirited entertainment in the early New Year.
The Queen Mary’s 14,000 square-foot dome was reinvented into an enchanting land of ice and holiday magic centered towards scenes from The Nutcracker. Life size reproductions of Clara, the evil Mouse King, and The Nutcracker himself create an unforgettable winter experience. The hand crafted ice exhibits are created by an international team of ice sculpture experts from Harbin, China and utilize LED lighting to produce a one of a kind experience that can’t be found anywhere else in Southern California. Guests have the opportunity to walk-through ice castles, bound down ice slides, and enjoy the 6,000 square-foot outdoor ice skating rink.
“We’re thrilled that CHILL will stay open for an extended period due to public demand,” says Steve Sheldon, director of entertainment events at The Queen Mary. “There’s a bit of magic at CHILL. Bringing winter to Southern California is a feat we’re proud of, and we’re looking forward to leaving the gates open longer for everyone to enjoy.”
CHILL also offers a holiday village, the world’s largest rocking horse and snowman bouncy, and features daily entertainment. Extended dates include Thursday, January 9 from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.; Friday, January 10 from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Saturday, January 11 from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.; and Sunday, January 12 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. CHILL is an all-encompassing experience that embodies the spirit of winter, where Southern Californian’s can step into an icy retreat full of frosty wonder.
