GALVESTON, Texas, July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- SpongeBob SquarePants is throwing a Christmas Party and visitors will be invited to experience all of the icy surprises as Moody Gardens introduces this brand new theme for ICE LAND: Ice Sculptures with SpongeBob SquarePants on November 14. There will be even more to delight guests throughout this festive season during the attraction's second year.
With the help of the continued partnerships with Nickelodeon and the VYA Ice Carving Team from Harbin, China, ICE LAND will feature over 2 million pounds of ice this year and even more sculptures than before. Being the only holiday ice exhibition on the Gulf Coast, this vast and amazing display of magnificent ice creations added a frosty new addition to the Festival of Lights and other holiday attractions last year with over 1.8 million pounds of SpongeBob SquarePants-themed ice sculptures.
"We are very excited to bring back ICE LAND for our guests to enjoy for the second year," said John Zendt, Moody Gardens President and CEO, who added guests will be captivated with the new SpongeBob storyline as they travel through the tent. "We had the highest holiday season attendance in 2014 with a 47% increase from 2013 due to the introduction of this popular attraction. We think guests will continue to enjoy experiencing all the holiday magic at Moody Gardens in 2015."
SpongeBob SquarePants will take guests on a special holiday adventure through Bikini Bottom as they encounter some of his favorite frosty pals along the way. Chilled and held at a temperature of nine degrees, guests can witness these works of art within a 28,000 sq. ft. insulated tent structure located on the property. This holiday treat for the whole family will be open through January 10 as Galveston makes its holiday transition into a Winter Wonder Island.
