Christmas at Gaylord Rockies
November 19, 2021 - January 2, 2022
A holly, jolly sleigh-full of holiday cheer is set for Gaylord Rockies Resort with a host of special events and activities set to be unwrapped this Christmas season. Featuring a brand-new, multisensory marquee Christmas experience, Mission: Save Christmas featuring Elf™ Christmas at Gaylord Rockies will delight guests with an abundance of imaginative environments, interactive experiences, holiday themed activities, and exciting live entertainment. Christmas at Gaylord Rockies begins Nov. 19, 2021 and continues through Jan. 2, 2022.
An All-New, Gaylord Hotels Original Experience: Mission: Save Christmas featuring Elf™
Representing this season’s marquee programming, Gaylord Rockies needs guests of all ages to help save Christmas! In this collaboration with Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment, guests will join Buddy the Elf and answer the call from Santa to help muster enough Christmas cheer to power the Kringle 3000 and help Santa’s sleigh fly. Guests will journey into Buddy’s world to help save the holiday in a multisensory experience full of fun, interactive challenges perfect for all ages: Team up with Mr. Narwhal and friends in the candy cane forest, stay ahead of the toy quota in the North Pole, prepare for Santa’s arrival at the iconic department store and take part in an epic, virtual snowball fight in Central Park. These are just a few of more than 12 interactive elements to discover in this unique experience.
But that’s not all the holiday happenings during Christmas at Gaylord Rockies, with Christmas cheer spread across the resort. Here are the highlights:
Cirque Dreams Holidaze lights up the stage for 62 unforgettable performances at the bubly™ theater. The awe-inspiring, eye-popping family holiday spectacular. This annual tradition wraps a whimsical, Broadway-style musical infused with contemporary circus artistry into the ultimate holiday gift for the entire family. Cirque Dreams Holidaze has been hailed by the New York Daily News as “A delicious confection of charm, sparkle and talent by the sleigh load.” It’s a show everyone will enjoy,” raved BroadwayWorld of the sold-out performances that “dazzled…at The Kennedy Center,” Washington Post. The Tennessean proclaimed it “A dazzling Holidaze Spectacle…for both young and old” at the Grand Ole Opry House.
Adventurous outdoor fun awaits on Glacier Point. Guests can experience the thrill of zooming around on ice, sliding, spinning, and bumping with friends and family on Ice Bumper Cars. Other activities include a four-lane Snow Tubing hill, Ice Skating, a Snow Merry Go Round and Snowdrift Mini Golf. Kids (and kids at heart) will enjoy building a snow man, tossing snowballs at a friend, or playing on the snow play structures in the Snow Park. And not to be missed is the LIGHT! Experience. Inspired by the high gusts across the Mile-High City, LIGHT! is an artistic take on the wind and its effect on the landscapes of Colorado. The beauty of this exhibit is revealed in the everchanging art formed by the influence and power of nature’s fury. Because Mother Nature is the designer, each installation is constantly evolving, never appearing the same way twice.
Inside the resort is Mistletoe Village, where guests will delight in Mrs. Claus’ Christmas Traditions storytelling event featuring the retelling of the Christmas classic, ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas; the Gingerbread Decorating Corner, Build-A-Bear Workshop®, and Photos with Santa.
To further get in the spirit, Brunch with Charlie Brown & Friends will offer memory-making photo opportunities as well as delightful brunch dishes prepared by the resort’s culinary team and the resort’s two holiday-themed scavenger hunts – Merry Snoopy’s Scavenger Hunt and Secret Santa Scavenger Hunt – sends guests on a quest to solve the puzzles and find the clues to complete the quest and win a prize.
