Oh baby it's definitely not cold outside, but here in Central Florida we do have real snow thanks to Snowcat Ridge Alpine Snow Park which has huge machines that produce thousands of pounds of real snow every day!

Following a delay which say the park push back it opening from November to December, the coolest attraction in Florida, located in Dade City has officially opened to guests, running select days, now through February 24, 2024.

Snowcat Ridge Alpine Snow Park features a huge variety of winter activities, including an arctic igloo and an alpine village that can’t be found anywhere else in Florida.

The main attraction at Alpine Ridge is the impressive 60-foot tall, 400-foot-long snow tubing hill, where you can ride single, tandem or in a 10-person snow tube.

Plus, the attraction has so much more, including a 10,000-square-foot indoor snow play area and a 400-foot-long snow tubing hill, and an outdoor ice skating area.

There’s real snow inside of the snow dome. You can build snowmen and snow castles inside. The snow dome also includes a child-sized snow hill for younger guests.

New for 2023, guests can enjoy Santa’s Christmas Lane, a winter wonderland where the magic of Christmas comes to life! Nestled amidst a magical landscape of Snowcat Ridge, Santa’s Christmas Lane includes Santa’s Cozy Cabin, Story Time with Mrs. Claus, Santa’s Gift Shoppe, and the Peppermint Play Zone. Guests will be able to enjoy meet-and-greets with Santa himself, experience story time readings with Mrs. Claus and more!
