Participants can enjoy a thrilling experience as they catch trout, and they can eat the trout they caught at the roasting areas or sashimi centers installed in various spots of the venue. Moreover, there will be a 12,990 ㎡ playground for 5,000 people to enjoy snow sledding, ice sledding, family bike riding and motorcycling around the ice fishing place.

There are also various subsidiary events to entertain the eyes and ears of participants such as a radio studio that announces stories and plays requested music, as well as snow castles and ice sculptures.
