Skiing, snowboarding and baseball at 321 Play

The largest venue for indoor skiing and snowboarding in the city, this building in Kwun Tong has three artificial ski slopes imported from Holland. The HK$1.5 million platform resembles a gigantic treadmill with varying gradients and speeds to simulate gliding down a snowy slope. On the second floor are three baseball batting lanes equipped with machines that throw balls at you at speeds of up to 140km/h.
