The oldest address for outdoor activities has long served as a top pick for city locals to spend their leisure time. Nicco Park in Salt Lake needs no separate introduction since it is the only amusement park in Kolkata.
What Makes It Awesome
Nicco Park has always had a reputation of being one of the most fun places to visit in Kolkata. Parents don't have to worry anymore if they are at an impasse on where to take their children during their summer holidays.

If you want to opt for family rides, there are a lot of options to choose from. River Cave is one of the oldest and most iconic rides at Nicco Park and the ticket will cost you no more than INR 80. It is said to be the first dark ride in India and as you venture into the unknown, suddenly you are bombarded with dinosaurs, volcanic eruptions and forest fires.
If you are looking for some light family time, then crazy tea party ride, toy train and cable car are the attractions that will suit your needs. Access the cable car services at INR 50, which has eight gondolas. Each gondola has space for four and you will get a panoramic view of all the rides and attractions from top.
