Snow and ice attraction at Shanghai animal park makes it cool
The Shanghai Wild Animal Park in the Pudong New Area has opened a new "Snow and Ice Kingdom" featuring animal-shaped ice sculptures and an icy slide, offering a thrilling visit for residents and tourists from home and abroad.
The kingdom, which has its temperature kept around minus 10 degrees Celsius, features an array of ice-engraved animal sculptures from peacocks and lions to polar bears and penguins.
There is a giant slide in the shape of the number eight in the area.
As part of the ongoing Shanghai Tourism Festival, the park opened the curtains on a carnival on Wednesday, just before the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day holiday.
A circus featuring about 100 performers from overseas will be staged with magic acts, acrobatics and clown shows, presenting a feast to the eyes and ears of the audience as a highlight of the carnival.
There are also science popularization activities about brown bears.
