Celebrate the holiday season at this one-of-a-kind winter-themed Snow Carnival at the M Resort!
From snowball throwing to snowman building, this celebratory attraction will offer a variety of seasonal favorites including a snow slide, a Candy Cane forest and a snow play area for winter games and more!
There are three rides inside the venue, which is located out in the pavilion behind the pool. There’s a small train ride, another small tubing ride which pulls you slowly in a circle on a snow tube, and the tubing snow hill pictured above.
*Please note that both of the tubing rides require a minimum height of 42″ for kids. My five year old is small, and is around 40″ tall. With snow boots on, he was right around 42″ so he was able to do both of those rides. You may want to measure before buying tickets as it is expensive, and otherwise is just snow play- which my older son enjoyed the most.
There are four separate snow play areas in the venue. One is for snow play and snowball tossing. Be careful in that one, as the snow can get pretty hard in areas and can hurt if you are hit with a hard chunk of snow. My son was hit accidentally on the side of his face and he was pretty upset.
Another area is for snowman building, which was a lot of fun. They provide plastic carrots for noses, little coal eyes, ties, sunglasses, arms and plenty of cute stuff to decorate your tiny snowman.
Yet another snow play area had a constant faint snow falling and the final snow play area was for snowball throwing, but with a giant Yeti wall for a target. This area also blasted lots of snow into the air, and it covered people. Kids (and adults) will get a bit wet in this area if you are covered in the snow.
The venue itself is not super cold, but the snow is. And, it is pretty wet when you’re playing in it, so actual snow (waterproof) gloves and shoes/boots are highly recommended. If your kids have snow pants, they can wear that and a heavy fleece or hoodie. My kiddos wore hats and my five year old wore a ski type jacket.
I didn’t wear snow pants on them, but could have because they end up sitting in the snow to build and their pants got wet. (We wore two layers of pants on them as well). I also attempted to be over prepared, so I brought a change of gloves for the kids. My eight year old’s gloves were completely soaked by the end of it.
Overall, my kids really enjoyed it. They had a snack and we enjoyed an adult beverage. There were four areas to get drinks/food so the lines were not long at all. If you have small kids that can’t ride, it might not be for you. I have seen reviews that complain that it is small, but there’s a lot to do in there if your kids like playing in snow.
I think we liked this better than Enchant Christmas at the Las Vegas Ballpark, which we went to last year. Both are fun, but there’s more to do at the Snow Carnival.
The prices are $36.99 for adults, $29.99 for children ages 3-11, and FREE for 2 years and under. There is a Groupon available right now offering a small discount if you want to save a few bucks. Snow Carnival Holiday Forest is designed for Guests of all ages.
