The snow park will feature snow tubing, snow play and Alpine Village. The 400-foot-long, 60-foot-tall snow tubing hill will also feature a magic carpet lift which will whisk riders and their snow tubes away to the top of the hill. As previously mentioned real snow will be featured along with single, double and 6-person family tubes.
A snow play dome will be made available to customers to make snowmen or snow castles. Real snow will be inside the dome, too. For the kiddos, there will be a child-sized version of the larger, main snow hill inside the dome as well.
Visitors can enjoy refreshments and a bite to eat at the Snow Alpine Village.
Point Summit Inc., who own TreeHoppers Aerial Adventure Park on St. Joe Road in Dade City, worked with County officials to make this park construction happen. The snow park will be built right beside it.
The snow amusement park would open seasonally to offer snow-themed activities, and also would create seasonal employment for the locals.
Similar parks exist in states like Georgia and California. It would not only be a seasonal attraction, but it would also create seasonal jobs for the Bay Area as well.
The plan to make this snow park happen in Florida has been in the making for several months at this point. There have been public meetings about it, along with letters of support and objection. Opponents of the snow park argue this would be a bad idea as traffic would increase and the overall economy of the area will be affected in a negative way.
