Ten-Second Takeaway

An amusement park and resort, Wonderla makes quite an eventful day out for the whole family. It could even be an all-day old-school date, we say!

In A Nutshell

Before you turn your nose up, hang on. Wonderla is really a rather fun place, if you don’t have too much time , but want to getaway. There’s water rides, high-thrill {read scary} ones, and even special ones for the kids. Plus, IMAX and 3D shows to cater to those who don’t have an adventurous bone in the body. Plus, a resort for an extended stay, time permitting.

Don’t Miss This

The Wonder Splash is super fun for that thrill of shooting down the rails in a bogie and splashing into a shallow pool. If you don’t get dizzy easily, make sure you stop off at Techno Jump which is a jazzed up carousel and moves up and down while also revolving. Then, my dears, take things up a notch and head to the Mixer {which really gives you the feeling of being in a blender}, Equinox which seeing you being swung like a pendulum but rotating at the same time {brain warp, alert!} and Flash Tower that lifts you to the top before you’re left to freefall the length of 40 metres. Needless to say it’s exhilarating once you find the courage to breathe again! Heart in mouth takes on a near-literal meaning!

Give It A Skip

For those who don’t mind that the water may be a bit dirty due to the hundreds of people who throng the park {read in their chaddis}, the water slides and chutes could be fun. You can either hurtle down the chutes and slides on your back or tummy for that real kick or use a rubber raft for that added bounce! But, be warned; how hygienic the water is, always has us worried.

On The Bucket List

Save the best {or we think at least} for last. By name and nature, Recoil is touted to be India’s first reverse looping roller coaster and let us assure you, it’s pretty scary. What a thrill; half the fun is the mystery of not knowing when you’ll be turned upside down!

Stay A Night

Skip across and check into the Wonder La Resort which offers luxury rooms, a heated swimming pool {after the ice cold rides!} and in-house restaurants to really make it a worth-while visit. Of course you can eat, sleep and repeat the whole process, if you choose! Or head back to town relaxed, and we daresay with more energy than you left with.


They have a Fastrack ticket {INR 1,500 upwards} which lets you skip the queues and it is totally worth the extra money.

Price: INR 920 upwards for adults and INR 740 upwards for kids on weekdays; INR 1,150 upwards for adults and INR 920 upwards for kids on weekdays. Rooms start at INR 5,500
