Are you brave enough to wear your swimsuit in 9-degree weather?

Starting at 8 p.m., Gaylord Palms’ Polar Dash invites guests to brave the 9-degree chill and don their beachwear as they dash through their ICE! attraction, complete with ice sculptures, ice slides and more. Once they make it through, everyone can head to the resort’s Alpine Village and warm up with hot chocolate, a live DJ, and eight snow tubing lanes.

Those brave enough to participate can either wear their swimsuit or “summer” clothing like a T-shirt and shorts. Guests must wear their swimsuits under their clothing. Restrooms are available near ICE! to use for changing. Guests will not be permitted inside the attraction without shoes.

Gaylord Palms will provide an area for guests to store their belongings, but this area will not be monitored. Guests are able to leave their items at their own risk.

Guests must be 18 years or older in order to purchase tickets and attend the event. This year’s Polar Dash includes:

  • Event-exclusive admission to ICE! featuring A Christmas Story
  • Unlimited snow tubing during the event
  • One hot chocolate
  • Live DJ
  • Self-parking for one vehicle

If you think you’re brave enough, head to Gaylord Palms Resort at 8 p.m. on Dec. 18 for the Polar Dash! To learn more, visit GaylordPalms.com.
