Arizona May Welcome an Indoor Snow Theme Park

Arizona really isn’t known for their vast variety of roller coasters or theme parks, and that’s probably because it’s just too darn hot to even go outside during the summer. There’s a solution to this weather problem, and a group of investors is looking to build it, with a new kind of amusement park right in the desert that will keep visitors cool all day long.

Catalyst Land Holdings is planning an amusement park filled with snow. They want kids to be able to build snowmen, go sledding, and chuck snowballs at one another while temperatures soar well above 100 degrees outside, yes just like the one in Dubai (although without the skiing).

They’ve already picked out their spot, and are talking with Phoenix officials about creating the park next to an old landfill. Sounds like some cheap land, which is a good thing, as we’re thinking this is going to cost quite a lot of cash—especially when they get that first electricity bill.

Everything is just on the drawing board at this point, so we can’t promise if or when the indoor snow will arrive in the Southwest. However, if they’re going to build something like this in the United States, we can’t think of a better place than in the middle of Phoenix and their sizzling temperatures.
