Bangalore, June 20, 2012, DHNS:Now, you don’t need to go to the Himalayan range or the Swiss Alps to experience the numbing cold during a snowfall. You can instead visit Snow City, a snow theme park that has just opened in the heart of Bangalore near TV Tower in JC Nagar.

The park offers a slew of recreational activities. You can climb a snowy mountain, amuse yourself with snow sliding, or laugh to your heart’s content by hurling snowballs at others’ faces. Else, you can take part in snow zorbing. Not impressed? You can admire the beauty of the snow castle even as snow keeps falling.

The park has a 33-foot-high snow area spread over an expanse of 12,500 square feet. The entire area is filled with snow made of filtered drinking water and air, says Raja Jupudi, Vice-Chairman of the Hyderabad-based Vajra Group. The firm deals with tourism, entertainment and real estate, and Snow City is part of Fun World, an amusement park. Vajra Group has invested Rs 10 crore to Rs 15 crore on Snow City.

Temperature in the snow area is kept between -5 ºC and -10 ºC to ensure that it does not change to water to vapour. Snow machines pump 5,000 litres of filtered water which later becomes about 10 cubic feet of snow. Water thus pumped makes snow form by itself. No chemical is used in snow formation, Jupudi claimed.

In order to avoid body shock, visitors are taken through different temperatures. For example, the entry lounge has temperature between 18 and 24 ºC, and the air lockroom between 5 ºC and 15 ºC. “It enables the visitor’s body resist the shock of experiencing extreme temperature,” Jupudi told Deccan Herald. Visitors are provided overcoats with caps/hoods, hand gloves and boots.

The park is open from 10.30 am to 9.30 pm on all days. Every day, nine sessions of 45 minutes each will be conducted. The entry fee is Rs 390 per person per session on weekdays, and Rs 490 during weekends.
