CHILL is definitely Southern California’s coolest holiday adventure complete with ice-skating, ice tubing, swingin’ sleigh rides, visits with Santa, gingerbread decorating and the all-new interactive attraction, Alice in Winterland.
There is so much to do and experience, guests will never want to leave. At first, everyone is enveloped in the holiday season feeling, especially when entering the interactive experience, Alice in Winterland. CHILL brings an inspired re-imagination of the classic Lewis Carroll story to life through the magic of an interactive and digitally immersive 14,000-square-foot walk-through experience.
Alice in Winterland features stunning, larger than life lanterns as guests follow Alice and her adventure into the Hall of Doors, the White Rabbit’s Kitchen, Mad Hatter’s Work Shop, the proverbial Tea Party, the Hedge Maze and visits from the Caterpillar and the new Queen of Diamonds.
The vivid display of flowers, teapot, characters and the digital interaction gets everyone’s visual senses stimulated from young to old. It is exciting walking through the different rooms and encounters all the great characters. Guests can purchase an interactive Hat From Hatter Dashery that activates cool digital images that the kids will absolutely love.
Exiting the experience, the adults can enjoy Winterland Vodka Flights and Magical Martinis at the Magic Mushroom Martini Bar, and the kids can relish a tasty marshmallow covered chocolates on a stick.
There is so much to do at CHILL, an endless holiday attraction, which makes this attraction a must to see and enjoy. Kids and adults will enjoy the Glacier Glide Ice Tubing with six lanes of glistening ice slides standing two stories tall and 100-feet-long, as well as ice skating under the stars on the 6,000-square-foot ice skating rink with the backdrop of the picturesque Queen Mary ship. These two attractions will definitely bring laughter and joy to everyone involved.
Next, stroll through the North Pole Village and stop by the Queen Mary Village’s post office to send a letter to Santa. Take a spin on the Swinging Sleigh Ride, the Giant Rocking Horse or play Prancer’s Paintball for holiday thrills.
A trip to CHILL is not complete without a stop by the Gingerbread House to make a festive edible creation, and a visit to Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Claus Cottage. The holiday fun is endless. This experience guarantees to become a family tradition, which will carry endless memories for years to come which is what the holiday season means.
