    Hello, welcome to the forum!


    Overview

    Snowfall isn't a rare occurence in North India especially in hilly areas close to the Himalayan foothills. But did you know that you can also experience snowfall in South India? Yes, aptly named the Himalayas in Bangalore is the Snow City, a part of the Fun World Complex. The best part is that you won't have to wait for winter to experience snow here. At any time of the year, whether it's summer or monsoon, artificial snow and snowfall can be enjoyed at the Snow City. It's a perfectly safe and unique destination at the heart of the city, that's sure to make for a fun activity, for families, friends or couples. In this guide, we would highlight the entry fees for Snow City along with other important information about the theme snow park.

    What is Snow City?

    A 12,500 square feet indoor hall filled with artificial snow, that's Snow City. With almost ankle-deep snow for adults and knee-deep snow for children, it's a surreal experience. The sub-zero degree temperature would let you feel the chill even if it's beyond 35°C outside. Housed in a pure white structure, the exterior seems to be a prelude to your snow-filled adventure inside. Enjoy the structures made from snow, like the castle, the slides and a disco area. Pure white snow made from water and air, perfectly safe if ever children accidentally consumed it. The Snow City lets you experience snow and snowfall right at the heart of city, there's no other place like it in Bangalore.

    Where is Snow City Located?

    Snow City is located in the Jayamahal Main Road, just nearby to the Kempegowda Tower Park. It is located at the city centre of Bangalore, close to the Bangalore Palace, which is under four kilometres away. As a part of the Fun World Complex, Snow City is located close by the Fun World, Water World and Wow World as well. The nearest railway station to the theme park is the Bangalore Cantonment Railway Station, which is merely two kilometres away.

    The first and foremost activity here is playing with snow. Embark on a fun-filled day outing, with your feet buried deep in snow. The central snow castle is the best place for photo opportunities. Children would love climbing on the snow stairs, getting under the igloo or maybe having their photo taken with the penguin statue. For the girls, there's a fairy statue that's sure to pique their interest. In one session, there's a few minutes of snowfall experience too, almost like the real snowfall in the hilly regions of North India.

    For the adults or the older children of the family, there's snow climbing. It's in the form of a mock snow hill and there is ice climbing equipment on the premises as well. For the little ones, they can enjoy sliding, as there are two slides in the premises. One is apt for snow rafting and the other is apt for sliding using a floater. There's also a small snow dance area where you can enjoy grooving to the latest hits while in snow. There are also many more structures made from ice that one can have fun in while in Snow City.

    Any Other Must-Knows Before Visiting the Snow City?

    Although the management does not restrict entry to any type of visitor, those with delicate health conditions must consult with their physician prior to visiting the Snow City. Seniors and young children must also have proper physician consultation prior to reaching the theme park. Women who are pregnant might also find the lower temperatures unbearable and so it's best for them to avoid going, especially if they're at a risky stage in their pregnancy. For those with children below 10 years old, it's a must to accompany your little ones at all times to avert any accidents while inside the Snow City.

    Mobile phones are not allowed in the premises though you can bring your camera for a fixed charge. You cannot bring outside food and beverages inside the Snow City. But there's a small tea stall within the area that you can buy some hot chai from. You can buy socks from the theme park but it's best to bring your own thick socks especially if you're not used to the cold. Further, if you have small children with you, the gum boots from the theme park might not fit them well. There has been instances of snow going inside the gum boots worn by smaller children as it doesn't fit them accurately.

    If you have many items with you, there are lockers within the premises that you can rent. They are rented out on an hourly basis after the first two hours. Other facilities for skiing or snow boarding are not available on Snow City.
