Culture Ice-and-snow Park to Welcome the New Century

A large ice-and-snow amusement park and China's tallest ice building, will be created in this capital city of northeast China's Heilongjiang Province by the year's end to celebrate the dawn of the new century.

The amusement park will cover some 188,000 square meters, and about 60,000 cubic meters of ice and 130,000 cubic meters of snow will be used to build several thousand ice artworks, including China's highest bell tower at a height of 33 meters and a 386- meter-long ice sliding board.

The park will be divided into five scenic sections featuring colored ice and a low-temperature fountain, and optical fibers and other new materials and technologies will be used for the first time in the winter park.

The amusement park will be open to the public on the last day of the year as one of China's major millennium pageant sites.
