The Ice and Snow World, which is the world's largest ice and snow theme park in China, is attracting a large number of tourists during the New Year holiday. The park covers an area of 750,000 square meters, with more than 2,000 ice artworks on display. It consists of nine scenic zones like a crystal palace, myth garden, and ice age. The 48-meter-high crystal palace, which is the world's highest ice carving, highlights the theme park as a landmark landscape. Over 30 snow and ice recreational activities like snowmobile and snow bumper cars bring joyful experience to tourists, who have to queue up for taking part these recreational activities. The slide, with the length of 140 meters and the height of 20 meters, takes 15 seconds for visitors to slide down from the top to bottom, which is described as "thrilling" experience by visitors.
