If you are looking for an ICY ADVENTURE this holiday season here in the not so wintery Southern California, look no further. Last week we were invited to experience the winter wonderland of the QUEEN MARY CHILL. It was our first time and we had no clue what to expect, but when we arrived our eyes filled with excitement and the magic of this beautiful place stole our hearts and exceeded every expectation we had! From soaring through the glowing lights on the Alpine Zip Line, speeding down the Matterhorn Mountain Ice Tubing slide, slipping around the ice track on tricycles and our favorite… crashing into each other on the Amsterdam Bumper Boats our excitement never ended. The theme this year was an International Holiday Expedition so we got to experience a cultural traditions and food from around the world! This night couldn’t have been more perfect, from exciting shows to yummy international goodies. We loved the family friendly vibe and will always cherish these new holiday memories. Visit the Queen Mary Chill’s website HERE for more info.. you definitely don’t want to miss this amazing holiday adventure.
Check out our ICY EXPEDITION into the QUEEN MARY’S CHILL…
THE ALPINE ZIP LINE
We started off our night zipping across the park on these amazing zip lines! All the kids but little Lucy braved soaring over the CHILL. You might just sneak a peak of us in all our zipline glory in our facebook video HERE

AMSTERDAM BUMPER BOATS
These were seriously our FAV! We would have stayed on these all night if we could have. We have never seen bigger smiles on our sweet little girls then on these boats! And the ice and lights made it magical!
And here is our CELEBRITY FAN GIRL MOMENT! Yes we were bumper boating with ASIA MONET! She was adorable.
These slippery trikes were hilarious to experience and watch! The kids slid around the ice track followed by and adorable PANDA BEAR riding his own trike! It was the best!
ZEN TEA HOUSE
The lanterns above China Town were so gorgeous at night! We couldn’t get enough of all the festive lighting!
While Lucy was finishing up her own lantern we were surprised with an amazing show performed by Chinese Acrobats! They were so lively and talented, the kids couldn’t keep their eyes off of them! There are shows in every land around the park featuring the different cultures of each country. MATTERHORN MOUNTAIN ICE TUBING SLIDE
These are the best! Including in your admission price you can slide all night long down these slippery slopes! They even have tubes that are the perfect size for your littles. PLUS there are so many lanes to slide down your whole family can race down the mountain at once!
What a treat this was to let the kids Christmas creativity run wild to create the cutest stockings ever with their new elf friends. There were a variety of colored stockings to start with as your canvas, then a wall full of cute stuffed trinkets the elves helped glue to the stockings. Sweet Kate loved getting the plush goodies in place to glue down.
These cuties all went home with new stockings for SANTA to fill.
The most beautiful sparkling ice rink was dazzling all night in the lights surrounding it. The rink has a trail around the park as well as the main rink. And how adorable are the little polar bears for the smaller kids to learn to skate with!
The Tree lighting (which is nightly) was an eye catching show filled with talented dancers and wondrous characters. Our families LOVED the beautiful lit ornaments placed on the tree by the performers and the light show was spectacular!
Kate has a fascination with Germany! So one of the towns we had to visit was German Town. All of the towns created by the Chill were amazingly done, but this town hit Kate’s heart strings! There was singing and dancing, the worlds largest rocking horse, a gingerbread making cottage and more! We chowed down on Bratwurst while enjoying this charming village display. It was perfect!
HOT CHOCOLATE AND STORIES BY MRS. CLAUSE
We finished off our night with hot chocolate and Christmas stories read by Mrs. Clause herself.
