    PhotoThe Penguins Undercover Ice World with the DreamWorks Gang ice sculpture exhibition will be held at The Venetian Macao’s Cotai Expo Hall F Nov. 27, 2014-March 8, 2015. Families and visitors of all ages will have the chance to take an undercover journey with the Penguins of Madagascar through the incredibly cool worlds of everyone’s favourite DreamWorks Animation franchises, all carved from ice.

    Supported by the Macau Government Tourist Office, Asia’s largest annual indoor frozen wonderland, Ice World, is returning to The Venetian Macao for the fourth successive year. This year’s exhibition will see blocks of colourful ice carved into amazingly detailed DreamWorks Animation characters by a team of talented craftsmen from northern China’s Harbin.

    With an exhibition area covering more than 1,600 square metres, the fun-filled ice sculpture exhibition is divided into six themed zones. Skipper and his “Penguins of Madagascar” entourage – Kowalski, Rico and Private – will introduce guests to their top-secret mission to explore the beloved DreamWorks franchises’ worlds to discover what makes the holiday season so special for each. The journey begins in Venice, Italy, where visitors are briefed by the Penguins on the undercover operation at hand. Guests will witness ice renderings of Italian piazzas, bridges over canals and singing gondoliers, before meeting up with all-ice versions of the much-loved characters from “Shrek,” celebrating the holidays together with their tight-knit fairy tale family at the swamp house. Next comes King Julien, Alex the lion, and all the zoosters from “Madagascar,” whose friendship is at the centre of their holiday cheer. The celebration continues with Hiccup, Toothless and all of their Viking friends on the Isle of Berk from the “How to Train Your Dragon” franchise where they celebrate the holidays as a uniquely bonded community. Visitors finally enter the frozen ancient Chinese Jade Palace, where they can slide down one of four amazing slides while Po the Kung Fu Panda, and the Furious Five watch on, celebrating the holidays with a focus on tradition. With their mission complete, the Penguins will guide guests back to Venice where everyone will get to take a photograph with the Penguins of Madagascar and celebrate a successful undercover holiday operation.
