Snow City: Now Experience Himalayas in Bangalore

Bangalore, June 21 (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 lock room between 5 ºC and 15 ºC.

“It enables the visitor’s body resist the shock of experiencing extreme temperature,” says Jupudi.  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.

Hi Team,

Please reduce the amount so that all can come and visit like middle class,Upper middle class...but i felt 390Rs is very expensiveand duration of time is too short if this continoues no people will visit....Take this had a request

It was pretty exciting for me ... as it was my first sub zero temperature experience.

Nothing much in there, but sliding was cool.

Yes, it is not cheap 490/- on a holiday 50/- for a locker 50/- for socks 30/- for a glass of hot milk (optional)

I was surprised to see a 5 months baby, with her father in Bermuda. No wonder they left the cold room in 5 mins.

I saw few college girls in skirts... again were out in 10 mins.

You wouldn't want to waste 500/- bucks,... be dressed appropriately, for sub zero temperate, as they do not provide cold resisting pant.

Rakesh shetty, mangalore agree with you karnataka is shining under the present BJP state govt with their good development works whereas the people like Jossy Saldanha, Ismailji and his team mates cannot digest this development works. so they didnot comment in this news now.

off course, snow city is a wonderful experience, but for children. so management should think of giving special discount for school children.

stop showing off jerry moras. it takes very little to appreciate what best is being done in our country. if you cannot appreciate then dont bother to pass negative commnets

Mr.Joel, Sydney/ Mangalore

Your observation is totally wrong. NRI's not bargaining people. Ready to buy at any cost during there holiday and make price hike in market. Reason behind price high of Fish/Meat/Chicken/Real Estate is due to these people. Ready to buy even pomfret fish 2 for 500. For us only 'podee-meene' gathi.

Aunty kase aasa tu. ghea go. burgaya bahare aasa.

SNOW CITY, a good idea. People who have not seen snow or only in movies and pictures will really enjoy. the price seem to be a bit high for the common man but it is worth an experience. I and my family are from New York and in the beginning we enjoyed walking, playing and making snow balls and throwing at each other. It was fun.This 2011-2012 winter we hardly had any snow and we missed it. Bangalore city it is a good achievement and I am sure they will enjoy it.

Mr.Jerry Moras, Calgary,Canada

India itself considered a God's Country. God has provided us each and everything at one place only. We do have snowfall in shimla/gulmarg/auli/naintal/arunachal pradesh/sikkim. Have good facility for even skiing. You enjoy over there we enjoy over here.

Waster of money ! My backyard is better than this. That too natural temp. If you need come to Calgary in Dec - Jan, you will experience -30 to -45. If you would love to stay in Calgary, Canada, I will help you find jobs and buy you property. visit JerryMoras.com

Charles D'Mello, Pangala, Very true, i have seen NRI,s inspite of converting dollar they think ten times before spending 10 rupees they go to the market ohh fish is very Exp and they come back. where as Indians dont care jus spend lavishly

Ashfaq Hussain, Dubai/Mangalore
Thursday, June 21, 2012

Its not expensive compare to Dubai where we are paying Dhs100/- & with apparatus its Dhs.130/-. When you convert into Rupees then it will be more than Rs.1000/-. So it is cheap.

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Pappu Desai, Adyar/Vadodara......In fact our Indian counter parts are spending more money than NRI's....this is my personal experience.

Pappu Desai, Adyar/Vadodara
Thursday, June 21, 2012

Entry Fee is very low. If it kept low place will be jam especially from NRI's. It's now become trend to venture out for Europe Tour even though rate of euro is high.

Vinayak, Mangalore / Dubai
