FREEZE ZONE You can chill out here

Jerkins, gloves and thermal wear, but, you will still shiver with cold. It's the latest attraction in the city at the Abirami Mega Mall on Purasawalkam High Road. Said Srikanth who was present at the inauguration of the Abirami Snow World: "I have seen snow worlds in different parts of the globe. But this one is unique as it offers various forms of entertainment to the public."

Describing the novel concept, Abirami Ramanathan said: "To set it up here, I visited all the places where there are snow worlds. I've seen the one at Genting Highlands, Malaysia, but what makes our snow world different is that I have taken care to ensure the safety of the people who visit. Though at any given point of time, there is 35 tonnes of ice, the snow has been made from pure mineral water. A reverse osmosis plant has been specially erected for the purpose. Thermal wear is provided to visitors and disinfected after use. The music is programmed so that it changes every 20 minutes. You almost feel that you are in a cave in the Swiss Alps."

The snow world has sledges, slides and a slippery bridge. You can enjoy a game at Loonie's basketball court, relax in Pokemon's log house, step into an igloo and even taste a snow elixir. You are given just 20 minutes to make a snowman.

"It is unbelievable to see snow falling on you and around you and that too in Chennai. I'm sure that this is one place people will want to visit again and again," says Ramanathan.

The entry fee is Rs. 100.
