Some Tips Before Visiting

Before you head out to the snowfall sessions, we like to share some tips that we have learned over the years from visiting these snowfall sessions. From real snow to fake snow, we hope these little tips will make your visit more enjoyable!
  1. Always bring a change of clothes In case the kids get wet and dirty (actually, it is not for in case, they WILL get wet and dirty) 
  2. For the same reason, bring a towel to clean up after play!
  3. We recommend another towel for those going to the foam snow venues. This is for cleaning their eyes when foam gets in their eyes. 
  4. Another for those heading to the fake foam venues, we also suggest wearing non-slip slippers for easy cleaning up after too - non-slip is important too! 
  5. For the real snow places, make sure your kids are properly dressed - don't underestimate how cold these places can get! 
  6. For really young ones going to the real snow places, bring your own jackets because the venue may not have the correct sizes available.
