DADE CITY, Fla. (WPEC) — The first snow park in the State of Florida will open on Nov. 20.

Snowcat Ridge announced on Sunday that tickets are now on sale prior to the park opening.

The park will feature three different entertainment areas.

Alpine Village will feature a variety of vendors offering hot and cold beverages, beer, wine and food.

A second area called Arctic Igloo will feature real snow where guests can build a snowman. A bunny slope will also be available for children 3-years-old and younger.

Snowy Slopes is a 60-foot tall, 400-foot long snow tubing hill featuring single, tandem and family-style snow tubing. Riders will be transported to the top of the hill using a pair of Magic Carpet conveyor lifts.

Snowy Slopes features nightly music and a light show visible from both Snowy Slopes and from the large viewing area in the Alpine Village.

According to Snowcat Ridge's website, general admission tickets include a two-hour snow tubing session on the Snowy Slopes and all-day access to the Arctic Igloo and Alpine Village. Unlimited snow tubing tickets are also available.

The park will be closed on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas.
