Have you ever been to the world of ice, if you have not then this is the chance to fulfill your dream! Make a trip to Snow World, an amusement park in Hyderabad where you could make your wish come true. Snow World, which covers around 2 acres of land, is owned by Ocean Park Multitech Ltd. The place in which the park is located is actually owned by the Andhra Pradesh Government but the company made an agreement with the government which certifies the ownership of the place to the company under lease for a time of 33 years. The design of the Snow World was prepared by Nitish Roy, who is a famous architect and a production designer. Chandrababu Naidu, who was the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh during 2004, inaugurated the snow world on 28 January 2004. At the time of its inauguration there were no such parks in India and now it is the third best snow park in Asia.
The facility is prepared by using around two lakh kilograms of fake snow, put on the layered flooring which help in avoiding leakage or melting. The top layer of snow is removed every day and is replaced by a new layer. The preparation of snow is actually done within the park and follows a patented method or technology which was developed by Australia. The snow is prepared using purified water and should not be worried if you have unknowingly consumed it.
Now let us have a look at the temperature reduction process of the park which does not cause any physical problems to the visitors. The temperature is reduced gradually, that is step by step, first the temperature will be reduced to 20o C and then to 0o C and so on. This technique will help the people to withstand the coldness. The park also provides sweaters and other protective clothing along with hot soup so that they could withstand the chilling effect. The Cryo zone can maintain a temperature of -5o C.
Some of the facilities which are available in the park are snow play area for kids, ice skating rink, sleigh slide, snow wars, bumping cars and merry-go-round. A snow fall feature was also included in the park later that is after 2 or 3 months from its inauguration. This snow fall feature was the foremost of its category in the world. The main specification of this feature is that after every hour there will be a snowfall which will last for 10 minutes. Provisions for kart racing are also available in this park which covers an area of 3000m2. This indoor karting arena was designed by plaster of Paris and has a proper aeration system which would fill the area with fresh air. This facility (indoor karting ring) was sanctioned by the Motor Sports Association of India.
