There are so many festivities available that even the biggest Scrooge will find the holiday spirit.
The Gaylord Hotel is pulling out all the stops this year to celebrate the holiday season. Under one roof, a pretty big roof that is, you can enjoy a winter playground, Cirque de Soleil-style show, and tons of other events for all ages bursting with cheer.
The best part is that it's an easy drive for Denver metro-area residents, or it could be made into overnight fun or mini-vacation by booking a few rooms.
Let's take a look at all that is offered! No matter what you choose, the whole property will be decorated to the hilt with more than 3 million holiday lights and acres of other festive adornments.
ICE! featuring Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Take a ride on the two-story ice slide, marvel at the larger-than-life ice sculptures that depict the much-loved story of Rudolph, and generally get lost in 2 million pounds of colorful ice. This winter wonderland is kept at a frigid 9 degrees Fahrenheit, so bundle up!
Cirque Dreams Holidaze
A family-friendly spectacular for all ages! Singing, costumes, and magical feats of acrobatic wonder fill a 75-minute show that sure to capture the wonder of the season.
Ice Skating, Tubing, and Winter Bumper Cars
Take to the ice for a ton of fun in a variety of ways. You can ice skate or scoot across the ice in a wintery-take on the traditional bumper car ride. Or, take a ride on the wild side and take on the manmade tubing hill! Enjoy the best activities of the season right there in the hotel.
In addition to all the above, there are tons of other events to enjoy, including traditions with Mrs. Claus, breakfast with Rudolph, a Santa-themed escape room, a scavenger hunt, gingerbread decorating, and more.
Tickets are required for most of these events, but you can opt to create a cost-saving bundle to enjoy your favorites. In addition, you can visit the hotel to see all the lights and non-ticketed displays for free. Santa will also be on hand, and you can purchase a photo with Santa if you choose.
