5 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU VISIT SNOW CITY IN BANGALORE, INDIA

Snow City in Bangalore snow city bengaluru

Though I have been to Fun World a couple of times, I’ve never had the urge to try out Snow City, which is right next to it. Thanks to my 6.10 year old daughter and her classmates, we finally went there, along with my 2.9 year old son.

We weren’t really equipped for it because we weren’t lucky to get a first-hand review from anyone. Therefore, I thought of putting down a list so that we, or whoever visits next, can be prepared for the cold and other things. Also, Instagram did not let me write so much!

First off, Snow City is a lovely place for a bunch of friends who want to have some indoor fun in the -5˚C temperature amidst Bangalore’s summer heat. If you have no plans to travel to a colder place, this is the best place to enjoy 45 minutes of your time in an icy environment. Age is no bar. I saw all ages present there; 2 years to probably 55 years.

There’s a huge snow slide, a rock climbing wall and several activities and places to take pictures. I didn’t find any other ride as mentioned online. Generally, the girls will love the enormous snow castle and the boys will love throwing snow balls at each other. You can even try your hand at sculpting with the snow. It’s pretty well done and well kept. They also have a 9D theatre that we enjoyed to the maximum.

The compulsory gear they give there includes waterproof fleece jacket with hood, transparent plastic rain boots and rexine gloves without fleece. But, there are a few things you should keep in mind before going there with your kids. Read on…

COVER UP

The boots and gloves given are the ones used for rain or wind. Not for -5 degree C temperatures. They do not have fleece. So, make sure you and your kids are well covered with winter gloves, good quality thick socks (double cover up if possible), long cargo pants/denims and full sleeves shirt/top before going there. You can wear the given gear (which has been worn by many) over and above all this. Wearing socks is mandatory and you will need to buy them if you don’t have your own.

The gloves given did not fit my 2.9 year old, so every time he picked some ice, his gloves would fall off. It would have been better if he had his own tiny gloves on to keep his hands warm.

Also, if you have weak ears, do make sure to wear a woollen cap that covers the ears though the jacket given there has a fixed hood. I survived without putting my hood on, but some people would need extra padding to cover up their ears.

FILL UP

Make sure your kids are well fed an hour before this play in order to avoid hunger pangs or puking during the 45 minutes you have inside. After you are done, there is a canteen right outside the snow area, where you can buy mediocre junk food, just in case you cannot control your hunger.

You cannot go back into the snow area after this.

PREPARE KIDS FOR 9D MOVIE EXPERIENCE

The 15 minutes movie runs every hour from morning till evening. The experience is awesome for everyone. But, if your kids cannot handle sudden bursts of water in the dark, or they are afraid of such things, then you will have to prepare them for it. My 6.10 year old and her friends had a ball of a time while my 2.9 year old was terrified to bits and began crying. I held him in my seat while the movie was on so he felt safe towards the end.

Children below 2 years are not allowed in the snow area.

DON’T RELY ON THE LOCKERS

There are limited lockers available for a fee of Rs. 50/- for two hours, and they are mostly filled up. So, take only necessary things into the place like money, ticket, ID card and glasses (if you need it to watch a movie) inside and leave the extras back in the car/home.

Only your loose pants with zipped pockets and a plastic cover can help to keep your other stuff from getting wet

FOR PHOTOGRAPHS

You can take your camera in the snow area for a fee of Rs. 50/-, at your own risk. I saw the sign when I was almost entering the area and our bags were taken to be kept back in the car. I did not have pockets on me and I wasn’t sure how it was going to be inside with two kids, so, I sent my mobile to the car as well. You can imagine what I was going through because I could not click pictures inside.

It is helpful to have a pouch around your waist to keep your mobile camera safe and dry while you jump around.

The games on the other floors are chargeable and not included in the entry ticket price. But, we went up and looked around anyway.

On the whole it was a good experience. My kids had a nice time. I found the place quite small but good for a ‘kiddy’ outing in the middle of the city though I saw groups of teenagers and adults also having fun there. I’m looking forward to visiting again with my friends and once my kids are a little older.

You can buy tickets online from their website or any booking portals.

How are you spending your summer holidays? Have you been to the Snow City in Bangalore?
