Florida’s First-Ever Snow Amusement Park Is Opening This Month
You don’t typically think of Florida as a destination for winter fun, but that’s about to change. Snowcat Ridge, located in Dade City on Florida’s Sports Coast, is a snow park that allows guests to experience the joys of winter without the sub-zero temperatures. With over 50 acres of forest and pasture, the park will feature an Arctic Igloo, Alpine Village, and Snowy Slopes.
Snowy Slopes, the park’s signature attraction, is a 60-foot-tall tubing hill that extends over 400 feet. Visitors will be able to sit in a single, tandem, or six-person tube as they slide down the snowy hill.
The 10,000 square-foot Arctic Igloo is a snowy play dome with a child-sized snow hill where you can use real snow to build snowmen and snow angels.
The Alpine Village recreates the classic Christmas Market environment. You can shop at the Holiday Market where vendors will be selling craft goods and hot and cold beverages, including wine and beer.
Evenings at Snowcat Ridge will be capped off with nightly music — expect to hear popular holiday songs — and a light show projected onto the Snowy Slopes.
Snowcat Ridge will be open from November 20, 2020, to March 21, 2021. Tickets can be purchased online starting at $24.95 but are also available at the box office for an additional $5. General admission includes a two-hour snow tubing session on Snowy Slopes and all-day access to the Arctic Igloo and Alpine Village.
