Moody Gardens reveals ice bar as part of newly-themed ice land

GALVESTON, Texas – Moody Gardens will reveal a bar made of ice, Shivers Ice Bar, as part of this year’s "ICE LAND: A Caribbean Christmas" attraction this holiday season.

With 36 days until opening day, the CAA Harbin Ruijing Carving Team of master ice carvers from Harbin, China has nearly finished their work on Shivers Ice Bar, a fully functioning bar made completely out of ice.

Everything in Shivers Ice Bar, from the stools to bottles in the background, are made out of ice, allowing guests to experience a brand new way to enjoy their favorite adult beverages.

When it opens on Nov. 12, guests can cozy up to the bar and order off a menu that will include festive holiday spirits.

Texas Tail vodka, locally crafted in Alvin, Texas will be one of the beverages offered at this below freezing ice bar.

ICE LAND will offer a unique holiday experience for the entire family and will be open through Jan. 8, as Galveston makes its transition into the Winter Wonder Island.

Admission for adults is $26.95, $21.95 for seniors and $15.95 for children. A Value Days discount of $5.00 is available Sunday through Thursday, Nov. 15 – Dec. 17 excluding Thanksgiving Day. Special packages are available for groups of 20 or more.

New this year, guests can go behind the scenes in ICE LAND as part of the Ice Carver VIP Experience. This experience allows guests the chance to see the carving team in action in addition to having a Q&A session and authentic lunch with the team. The Ice Carver VIP Experience also includes a 45 minute Penguin Encounter to meet a real penguin at the Aquarium Pyramid. Tickets for this experience are available until Nov. 6; the cost is $199 per person or $179 with a Moody Gardens Membership.
