Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

The summers are upon us and so is the scorching, unforgiving heat. We’re always looking for the best way to cool off and yeah, sitting in an air conditioned room is great but have you ever thought of heading down to India’s largest indoor snow park? In fact, you won’t even have to travel too far because Snow World Noida is the very park we’re talking about.

Well, now all you have to do is grab a couple of friends and head down to the chillest place this summer. While you’re here, be sure to try out the bobsled rides because they’re not only fun, but they add an adventurous twist to your outing.

Apart from just the bobsled rides, Snow World, Noida is also home to a bunch of other fun activities for people of all ages. Upon your entry to Snow World, you’ll be transported to a Narnia like world, flush with snow all around. Once you’re in here, you won’t want to leave, let alone think about the sweltering heat outside.

Of the slew of activities you can partake in here, bobsledding is the newest addition. They already have rides such as the ice skating, snow boarding, ice sliding and a lot more, each of which are extremely fun and will have you feeling like you’re a kid all over again.

Bobsledding here is a pleasure in itself. With the plethora of twists and turns, you’ll be continuously occupied in the ride and forget about your troubles in the world outside. Think of the best rollercoaster ride you’ve ever been on and add snow to it, and you’re somewhere close to what the ride is actually like. If not for anything else, this is one ride that makes Snow World a must visit.

Since the place is covered in snow, you’ll be surprised to see that it actually isn’t freezing in here. The indoor temperature is a great relief from the harsh sun and we for sure could do with a few more trips to the snow park. Once you do pay a visit here, you’ll want to keep coming back for more and more.
