Life in a Metro City is always on a run. Getting up early and closing eyes
late. Peace seems to have run away a long distance. Large sounds of Honks,
horns and bikes swarming around day and night, people talking and walking
all the time, high pitched television, loud sound speakers all of
them are a part of daily city life.
Saving oneself from this daily rush, going out on an excursion seems to be
a good idea. But then its not always possible to go out for a days
excursion. Sometimes we don't have the time, sometimes its the budget and at
other times all don't agree for the same destination. A market place is
something common but not everybody likes to be in the market, a theater
sounds good, but not all love to watch a movie. Turning up for all the
things an Amusement Park seems to be a better idea then the rest.
The Land of India has abundance of Amusement Parks and they seem to be
growing day by day. Be it the Ocean
of Hyderabad, Nicco Park
of Kolkatta, Essel World
Going to any of these parks can be entertaining for the entire family. With
the mass of Entertainment funs and rides, these can be playful in the manner
the kids like them. Most of the theme parks have a variety of Rides, variety
of food courts and a lot of space for the children to play. The various
rides keep the children engaged, in addition it gives then full
entertainment and also the time to develop themselves.
In a Theme Park not only there are Rides for the children but also the
elders. These rides keep both of them engaged for long hours, keeping their
minds away from day to day hassels; taking them to a new world. The other
good thing about the Theme Parks is that the Amusement Parks are usually
near from the City, making them easily accessible.
Not very expensive, the tickets of the amusement parks range from Rs 200/-
to Rs 300/- per person. One ticket of an amusement park usually includes six
to seven rides per person. Apart from this, all other expenses have to be
borne by the person. Tickets for the children are priced half of the adults.
Some of the amusement parks also have shopping complexes from one can buy
varities of clothings. The shops have top branded cloths and shoes shops.
Some even have soft toys shops. But these have to be paid for from your own
pocket. These are not paid for by the Amusement Park Authorities. Apart from
the rides, the theme parks
also have the water
parks. These water parks have a variety of water themed rides. Again they
are so priced that everyone can enjoy these rides. There are water pools,
water rides and water falls in which one can play. The usual time of opening
of theme parks is 11:00 a.m,. o'clock in the morning and the closing time is
6:00 p.m. In the evening (Its a generalized time which runs throughout the
Take Spare clothes along. Don't take any valuables with you. If you do
take, keep them in the lockers which are given by the Theme Parks. If you
have very little children with you, don't take them along as they are not
allowed inside the park. Eatables are not allowed inside the Theme Parks ;
so in any case don't take them along. Most of the theme Parks are 5
10 kms away from the city, so if possible take your own vehicle or hire a
taxi to and fro.
