“Snow in the city”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

Pros:
1. Something different for a weekend rather than going to malls all the time
2. Within city limits

Cons:
1. Expensive on weekends (not worth 490 per person)
2. Nothing much to do inside
3. Jackets are of bad quality
4. Toilets were pathetic

Others:
1. 45 mins are more than enough
2. They want to make money out of everything for example:
a. Charges for taking camera or even mobile phone inside, its better you take camera inside or else you will pay Rs.100 per photo
b. You would be charged for taking locker to keep your stuff
c. Better you have your own socks or else you will have to buy them inside
3. There are 9 time slots and there's no advance booking (last time slot in evening is at 8PM)

“Himalayan Feel in Bangalore”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

It is snowing in Bangalore !!!! I was amazed when I heard about Snow City starting in Bangalore. Six machines working round-the clock to maintain snow in a setting which is good clean - but cold and at times wet - fun !! The sheer white inside is stunning. And the -5 degrees celsius is very cold at least for a Bangalorean.

The duration per visit (or show, if you may ) is 45 minutes. We were asked to remove our foot-wear and use snow-boots. We were given jackets which suited our respective sizes, gloves and even ear-covers. A few minutes wait in a cold room at 10 degrees celsius and then the doors to snow city opened.

The slide was great. One can lie down on tubes or flat sheets and go down the snow-slopes. There was a snow-shower for a while. Some snow-climbing. Plenty of plastic balls to play with. Psychedelic lights and dance-music. But when the snow was balled and thrown at your face - as most visitors would do - the momentary shock was always there. There are places to just sit down and watch too.

You are - rightly - discouraged from carrying your cell phones inside : the low temperature and wetness may damage them. However, any camera will entail a charge of Rs. 100. Else you could use the services of the camerman inside at additional cost.

The price I thought was a little steep at Rs. 390 on week-days and Rs. 490 on week-ends and holidays. But I guess the investors are in a hurry to recover !!! They are agreeable to token discounts when the group is over 25 and are also ready to arrange small functions (like birthday cake cutting, ring ceremonies, etc.). They are planning for a 5D theatre in the same complex. A refreshment set-up inside the complex completes the picture.

All in all, worth a visit.

“Not up to the mark”
Reviewed 18 August 2012

I Really disappointed this Show City when i visited it just few days after Hyderabad Snow world. They will allow you Only 40 minutes inside. Very poor infrastructure. Less safety features. Only you may enjoy if you never saw ice before. But if you already saw real snow or visited any other snow park then avoid this. Just waste of money.
