A favourite with Bangaloreans, Wonderla is ideal when you want to spend an action-packed day away from home. Over the years, the park has expanded to include many thrilling rides like the Flash Tower {where you drop from a height of 40 meters}, Hurricane {a tall, three-bladed fan like structure to which you are strapped onto and hurled around}, and of course, the reverse looping roller coaster. At the water park, the Jungle Lagoon, Lazy River, and Fun Racers will keep you happy and soaking. Wonderla offers accommodation too for those of you who want to getaway for the entire weekend.

Yes, yes, we know that Innovative Film City is not technically an amusement park. But does it offer fun activities and a handful of thrills too? Hell, yeah! Pack your swimsuit and head over to their Aqua Kingdom where you can glide down slides and splash about in clear pools. Once you’ve toweled off, you can stop by the Dino Park, where you can gawk at the life-size dinosaurs. For an added dose of spook, we recommend a stroll through the Haunted Mansion with its roaming zombies, skeletons, and ghosts. Go karting, zip lining, bungee jumping, and dirt biking can also be part of your itinerary.
