Cable Car Rides, Snow & House Of Horrors: These Theme Parks In Chennai Are Entertainment 101
VGP Universal Kingdom
Apparently this is India’s first themed park and has been around since 1975. VGP Universal Kingdom has been creating waves all around the city after introducing South India’s biggest snow park. Just a short ride on the scenic ECR, VGP Universal Kingdom truly is a one stop destination for fun. Rides range from jumping frogs, the Ferris wheel, wave swinger, dashing cars, roller coaster, water sports and over 40 more. There are plenty of restaurants too here! Is VGP Universal Kingdom a place with just a bunch of rides? Not at all! There are several other attractions apart from the Snow World like the 3D Art Museum, a vintage camera museum, a horror house, a ‘paneer’ fort, a petting zoo, live shows and a private beach, making it one of the best theme parks in the city.
