It’s been just a few weeks since their arrival and the CAA Harbin Ruijing Carving Team has already completed Scene 2 of this year’s ICE LAND: Ice Sculptures, A Caribbean Christmas and Shivers Ice Bar! Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy this cool attraction with a Moody Gardens flare as its grand opening will kick off on November 12th.


In this part of your journey you will encounter a sunken ship, buried treasure, a lighthouse, beautiful tropical fish and corals on your way to the ultimate Caribbean destination for the holiday season!


Moody Gardens is also offering an Ice Carver VIP Experience with a behind-the-scenes tour of these skilled carvers transforming these huge blocks of ice into magnificent towering ice sculptures. Next, you will be escorted to the Aquarium Pyramid for a Penguin Encounter during which you get to meet a real penguin!  This is followed by an authentic Chinese lunch accompanied by a Q&A session with the master ice carvers themselves!  This $199 per person package also includes a Penguin Art painting by a Moody Gardens penguin and a ticket to visit ICE LAND and Festival of Lights once these attractions are completed and open for the holiday season. For reservations, please call 409-683-4368. (Reservations are required one week in advance. Prepayment is required at the time of your reservation. This package is discounted to $179 for Moody Gardens members).

You can watch all of the action live on our webcam.

Buy your tickets in advance as they are now on sale! The holiday season at Moody Gardens will kick off on November 12, 2016 and run through January 8, 2017.

    The webcam has no one in the area that it is pointed at. Is there a way to move it so we can actually see what is going on? I have tried multiple times a day for 2 days, and have not seen anything.

    Will there be warm coats provided for the ice land and ice bar experience?

    The blue Moody Gardens parkas that are used for ICE LAND are what guests will be given to wear to Shivers Ice Bar. You must go through ICE LAND to visit Shivers so you will already be wearing the parka.
