Family Guide to The Queen Mary CHILL

We attended as a guest of The Queen Mary


A “chill” is in the air surrounding The Queen Mary this holiday season as families are invited to create special memories at The Queen Mary Chill. From the Ice Kingdom to ice skating, there is something for everyone at this fun family holiday event.

Ice Kingdom
One of the highlights of CHILL is the Ice Kingdom. Your family will put on a warm oversized jacket before entering the freezing room. Once inside there are beautiful handmade ice sculptures with the highlight being the giant Queen Mary ice sculpture complete with ice slides for kids to ride down. Recommendations: Dress your kids in lots of layers (it is truly freezing in this room). I also don’t recommend bringing any electronics into the room – they do advise that they can break due to the freezing temperatures. Talk to your kids about “respecting the ice” by not sitting or licking any of the ice sculptures.

Glacier Glide
You don’t have to travel to the local mountains to go tubing…just visit CHILL. Right next to the Ice Kingdom are multiple tubing lanes where kids can glide down the 100′ 6-lane ice slides. Recommendations: If you purchase the Elf Pass then your kids will have a VIP access line without having to wait with the general admission.

Ice Skating
When first arriving at CHILL go directly to the 6,500 square-foot ice skating rink to get your preferred skating time. There is no additional cost for the ice skating, but their times do fill up quickly especially as it gets later in the evening. Upon arriving at the rink, you’ll be given a card with your return time when your family can ice skate for one hour. (skates are included)


Swingin’ Sleigh
Straight from Neverland Ranch comes the Swingin’ Sleigh ride. Your children can swing high above CHILL on this historic carnival ride. If your family purchases the Elf Pass then there are unlimited rides; otherwise, there is an additional charge of $5 per person to ride.


Blizzard Blvd
Located next to the ice skating rink are multiple activities. Your children can have their picture taken with Santa (no personal photos allowed), have your kids face painted, caricatures drawn and purchase t-shirts. The t-shirts, face painting, and caricatures are all an additional charge.
