Introducing Snowcat Ridge, Florida’s First Snow Park
Coming soon to Central Florida: Snowcat Ridge!
Pasco County Board of Commissioners approved a permit for a snow amusement park to be built in a rural area of Dade City, just north of Tampa. The park will be located right next to TreeHoppers Aerial Adventure Park, close to Scream-A-Geddon, the annual Halloween horror theme park. Other nearby cities are Lakeland, Orlando and Zephyrhills, FL.
The park’s goal is to stay open for 120 days of the year depending on the weather. The temperatures must stay below 80 degrees in order for the park to be open (since it will feature real snow). 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 owns “TreeHoppers Aerial Adventure Park” on St. Joe Road in Dade City, worked with Country 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.
