Ice World, a fun-filled and frosty exhibition all carved in ice by talented craftsmen from Harbin, makes its home at The Venetian Macao for the third year in a row. Supported by the Macau Government Tourist Office, Ice World with the DreamWorks Gang features much-loved characters from DreamWorks Animation, Macao landmarks, and winning entries from a local community drawing competition.
Ice World is one of the many exciting activities available during the spectacular Winter at Cotai Strip, which turns Cotai Strip Resorts Macao into a delightful wintry wonderland, with charming stringed lights, a giant lit Christmas tree, a real ice rink, Christmas markets, non-stop entertainment, and an eye-popping 3-D light and sound show.
Asia’s biggest indoor ice event, with over 1,600 square metres of space, returns to The Venetian Macao following the success of the last two years’ exhibitions. Crafted once again by Harbin craftsmen from the world-renowned Heilongjiang Provincial Ice and Snow Art Development Co Ltd, this year’s exhibition will be themed after the unique DreamWorks Experience, with visitors able to view some of the animation world’s most famous characters sculpted from ice.
Visitors to the exhibition will have a chance to experience a magical winter land journey through seven different zones featuring famous Macao landmarks and favourite DreamWorks characters such as Shrek, Princess Fiona, Alex and the gang from ‘Madagascar’, and Po from ‘Kung Fu Panda’, just to name a few. Families are sure to love the ice slide as they whizz down at breathtaking speeds.
Ice World with the DreamWorks Gang also features the debut of the two newest characters to join the DreamWorks Experience at Cotai Strip Resorts: Tigress from ‘Kung Fu Panda’ and Belt from ‘The Croods’. Each will be carved into ice, and visitors can also see and interact with them at Sands Cotai Central. Tigress will be joining her DreamWorks pals at Shrekfast starting 21st November, entertaining breakfast-goers and providing memorable photo opportunities, and keen-eyed visitors might just run into the cute and cuddly Belt and his hug-worthy long arms at the Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central main lobby.
The temperature in Hall F is set at a chilly minus 8 degrees Celsius. Visitors are strongly advised to wear hats, gloves, long pants, and closed-toe shoes. Hooded coats are available in varying sizes at the exhibition for adults and children to borrow; hats, gloves and socks may also be purchased. Shoe rentals are also available in limited quantities and sizes.
Dubbed “the coolest experience in town”, Ice World with the DreamWorks Gang is sure to be a popular family draw with its colourful displays and fun-filled activities this winter season. Tickets are priced at MOP/HKD 100 per person, with a minimum age of three required for entry. For more information, visit www.venetianmacao.com/ice-world
