Ice Age Ice Palace Open for the Holidays at Dolphin Mall

This holiday season, visitors to Dolphin Mall are in store for some cool family fun when they step inside the centers’ spectacular holiday Ice Age Ice Palace. Visitors to the Ice Age Ice Palace can enjoy footage from the biggest family holiday release, Ice Age: Continental Drift, debuting on Blu-ray™ and DVD Dec. 11.

The Ice Age Ice Palace display at Dolphin Mall opened today and features a 30-foot ice dome with falling snow, a light show and, new this year, the beloved prehistoric herd from Ice Age: Continental Drift. Interactive globes will showcase Scrat on his endless mission to catch his precious acorn, while the whole Ice Age herd is adrift on an iceberg in pirate waters. Families can measure their prehistoric heights against Sid and Diego, go paw-to-paw with the herd and track down Scrat’s missing acorns throughout the palace. The high-seas adventure culminates with a visit to Santa and a special Ice Age gift, along with the exclusive option to pre-order Ice Age: Continental Drift on Blu-ray™ and DVD.

“The Ice Palace is the highlight of the holidays at our center, and there is hardly a more perfect film to showcase in an Ice Palace than the newest Ice Age,” says said General Manager, Pete Marrero. “We are thrilled to partner with Fox Home Entertainment to feature this popular family film.”

“We are incredibly proud of the success of Ice Age and are constantly looking for new ways to bring the characters and stories to life,” said Mary Daily, President of Worldwide Marketing & CMO for Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. “Our partnership with Dolphin Mall allows us to engage with families during the Holiday season in ways we never imagined before for the franchise.”
