CHILL AT THE QUEEN MARY
Winter Wonderland in the OC
Grab your beanies and gloves and head over to Chill in Long Beach CA. It’s a super cool event for everyone: couples, families, solo. It’s really cold inside 32 degrees. They provide down jackets for people who didn’t bring a warm coat. It’s soooo cold that iPhones stop working periodically.
What is there to see and do?
What fun! Slides, igloos, ice sculptures, castles…so amazing! What a treat to experience Chill and the winter paradise in So cal.
The kids and I loved the ice sculptures, the detail was amazing. 2nd best was the ice slide.

Sip creamy hot cocoa while you ice skate with the magestic Queen Mary in the background.

ANNUAL HOLIDAY ADVENTURE AT THE QUEEN MARY
Select dates from November 23 – January 8.2016
Light up the holidays this winter at the Queen Mary’s CHILL as we proudly present Alice in Winterland, an incredible holiday adventure illuminating a holiday inspired re-imagination of the classic Lewis Carroll story in striking colors & equally stunning light fixtures.
Wander through an immersive 14,000-square foot experience that tells the story of Alice in Winterland featuring hand-crafted lanterns made from hundreds of pieces of silky cloth and countless hours of preparation in a beautiful visual celebration of the holiday season. RFID technology make the experience truly interactive as you unlock the wonders of Winterland
Grab your skates and twirl around the 6,000-square foot outdoor Ice Skating rink that rests alongside the legendary ocean liner or grab a tube and take a glide down the 135-foot Glacier Glide Ice Tubing Luge.
Stroll through the North Pole Village, delight in our Peppermint Parlor aboard the ship and stop by the Queen Mary Village’s post office to send a letter to Santa. The holiday fun is endless: Take a spin on the Swinging Sleigh Ride, the Giant Rocking Horse or play Prancer’s Paintball for holiday thrills.
And a trip to CHILL is not complete without a stop by the Gingerbread House to make your own edible creation, and a visit to Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Claus Cottage.
