The Blue Rose and The Orlando Ski World will tower majestically over the City of Orlando and will be a beacon for those seeking around-the-clock entertainment. The excitement will be palpable within The Blue Rose . Broadway musicals and live performances by international recording artist will make The Blue Rose Theatre the hottest ticket in town.

The restaurants and retail locations within The Orlando Ski World will bring a unique flavor to the project and the main attraction will be the restaurant located 300 feet up inside the ski slope at the top of the summit. The Grand Lobby , set amidst lush tropical landscaping and highlighted by cascading waterfalls and breathtaking floor-to-ceiling windows, will be the dramatic entrance to The Blue Rose . The Grand Lobby will feature the American Bandstand - Food Network Café with its Atrium Stage .
