Anyone think an indoor ski resort would do well in Orlando?

Recommended Posts

We have seen a few of these around the world (Ski Dubai being the most incredible), but so far there isn't a single one in America. A few had been planned before the recession, but since then they have all fallen through. If someone wanted to bring a whole new demographic to Orlando, an indoor ski resort would be one way to do it. I think Las Vegas would probably be a better match for that demographic, but how well do you think one would do here? If a developer with deep pockets built something world class, I think it would be a magnet for skiiers in the summer and bring in major tourism dollars.

One was proposed for the Cypress Gardens area before Legoland bought it.

An outdoor one was proposed for the Orlando Thrill Park property south of Festival Bay but I believe that's dead as well now.

Wanda is building a nice one in China right now. It includes a ski lodge, chapel and themed restaurant.

If the one hear had stuff like that I believe it would do well. Maybe attach it to a large hotel, like Gaylord Palms. I think just a slope by itself wouldn't be enough to attract people. Maybe have a kids park, a Santa meet and greet or live animals. Just something to plus it.

But overall yeah I believe one would do good here. I've actually been waiting for one.

I was talking with a friend just the other day about how that's one of the last remaining attractions we're missing.
