WORLD's LARGEST SNOW PARK

Ski Dubai is an indoor ski resort with 22,500 square meters of indoor ski area. It is a part of the Mall of the Emirates, one of the largest shopping malls in the world.
 
More than seven years since it opened, Ski Dubai at the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai remains one of the most attractions in the UAE. Billed the world's largest Snow Park, it sprawls over 3000 square meters of artificial snow. Temperatures here are set at -1°C (about 45 to 48 degrees lower than the desert heat outside).

There are tobogganing hills, a twin track bobsled ride, a snowball-throwing gallery and a snow cavern filled with interactive experiences. An observation tower offers a view of the Ski Dubai main slope. Children can build a snowman and play on the hills. Refreshments are available at two cafes - St Moritz Cafe at the entrance to Ski Dubai, and Avalanche Cafe at mid-station.

A full-day pass sets you back by AED 140 (US$ 38, INR 2,088) for adults and AED 130 ($35, INR 1939) for children under 13. Kids under three are not charged. A winter-coat, boots and disposable socks are included with the ticket. Ski Dubai has a full capacity of 1,500 guests.

WORLD's BIGGEST FREE-HOLD WATER PARK

TROPICAL ISLANDS RESORT
Watch it on YouTube : WORLD's BIGGEST FREE-HOLD WATER PARK

Tropical Islands Resort is a tropical theme park in Krausnick, in the district of Dahme-Spreewald in Brandenburg, Germany. It is located in the former CargoLifter airship hangar (known as the Aerium), the largest water park, biggest free-standing hall in the world. The hall belonged to the company CargoLifter until its insolvency in 2002.

BEHIND THE HALL
In 1938, Nazi Germany began development of Brand-Briesen Airfield for the Luftwaffe. The Red Army overran the site in May, 1945, and occupied the site after World War II, adding a second runway and nuclear-resistant command and control facilities for the installed fighter aircraft regiment.

With the reunification of East Germany in 1989/1990, the Soviet Army agreed to return all military bases by 1994. Returned to the Federal Government of Germany in 1992, Cargolifter AG bought the former military airfield to construct airships. They began development of a new construction hall, 360 metres long, 210 metres wide and 107 metres high, which cost €78 million. At 5.5 million m³ (194 million ft³), it stands as one of the largest buildings on Earth by volume, and is the world's largest single hall without supporting pillars inside. The hangar was commissioned as an airship hangar named Aerium in November 2000, but the airship it was intended to house – the CL160 – was never built. CargoLifter went bankrupt in mid-2002.

Tropical Islands has a number of different themed areas:
  • The Tropical Village, featuring accurate copies of traditional buildings from Thailand, Borneo, Samoa and Bali.
  • The Rainforest, with around 50,000 plants and 600 different species, including some rare plants.
  • The Tropical Sea, a 140 metres (460 ft) pool with an area of 4,400 square metres (47,000 sq ft) and a depth of 1.35 metres (4 ft 5 in) designed to look like the waters of a coral island, a 200 metres (660 ft) sandy beach and 850 wooden sun-loungers; water temperature 28 °C (82 °F).
  • The Bali Lagoon, with an area of 1,200 square metres (13,000 sq ft)and a depth of less than 1 metre (3 ft 3 in) in places, fountains, a current canal, whirlpools and two water slides; water temperature 32 °C (90 °F).
