CHILL, featuring The Ice Kingdom returns to the Queen Mary November 22, 2013. This is the second year for a winter attraction, which features a variety of cold-weather activities including ice skating, ice tubing and ice sliding.
In line with the winter theme, they've built a ice igloo inside the Queen Mary Dome, where visitors can don a long blue parka to step into a 9-degree 13,000-square-foot Ice Kingdom filled with magical giant ice sculptures inspired by the ice festivals of Harbin, China. Many of the Chinese ice sculptors who worked on the Ice Kingdom in Long Beach actually came from Harbin. This year's theme for the ice sculptures is The Nutcracker.
This year they've added additional free attractions for younger kids, like a giant snowman bouncy house, a snow globe they can play inside and a huge rocking horse that adults and kids can ride together. There's also a Bucking Reindeer ride for an additional fee.
