Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate is calling on those planning to develop theme parks in our city to include indoor snow skiing in their attractions.
Mayor Tate, currently on a tour in China, made the comments while visiting the city of Chengdu to look over a model of a $10 billion city they are building in the area.
He said the city’s developer is revolutionising technology behind theme parks to the extent that the new city will have theme parks actually integrated as part of the city’s broader attractions.

“Tourism – both domestic and internationally – is about renewing your product to stay relevant,”he said.
“In that case, I am pushing for a future theme park in our city to include indoor snow skiing.
“Imagine snow skiing on the coast in the middle of summer!” Mayor Tate said.
He said he’s looking forward to the Gold Coast building a closer relationship with Chengdu.
