Fun In The Sun: 5 Water Parks To Hit Up This Summer Near Pune
Summer is here! Soak up those rays and make some waves in a water park, that is. Here are 5 popular water parks in and around Pune.
Imagica Water Park
Sister-park to Imagica Theme Park, their water park is just as exciting and fun. Touted as the perfect day-party destination, it really is a great place to spend a sunny day. Imagica Water Park features solo and group slides, floats, a lazy river, and a wave pool. We hear the Loopy Woopy fall, Yell-O, Zip Zap Zoom, and Twisty Turvy are the must-try rides. They have exciting deals and offers. A regular ticket grants you access to all the attractions, and access to all six of their eateries.Tickets start at INR 599.
Diamond Water Park
Diamond Water Park boasts 32 international water rides and attractions, and 7 huge pools. There’s a family play station, a kiddies’ pool, a multi-lane slide, an octopus slide, a sea pirate ride, a tortuga falls ride, a wave pool, lazy river, and a wet bubble. A vegetarian restaurant on-site ensures you can grab a bite to re-fuel. In addition, they have an adventure park and campsite right next door – and you can buy combo-tickets for the same (although the camping requires prior bookings and registration). We think this makes for an excellent weekend of adventure and excitement. Entry ticket for water park (with lunch) costs INR 650 onwards and their combo ticket (water park + adventure park + food) starts at INR 1500.
Sentosa Resorts and Water Park
Sentosa Resorts and Water Park is another great weekend destination to beat your summer woes. Adjacent to the resort itself is the water park, where you can frolic and splash around in their landing pool, kiddie’s pool, water slides, wave pool, swimming pool, or be a land-lubber and take a rain-dance instead. Sentosa doesn’t allow outside food and drinks, but they have a multi-cuisine restaurant and fast food outlet on-site as well, so you won’t go hungry. You can book your meal ticket along with your ticket to the water park, and make it a combo. Entry to the water park will cost you between INR 350 to INR 400.
Krushnai Water World
Pair up on the Magic Sway, brave the Black Hole, race your friends on the Turnpikes, take a River Cruise, zoom around on the Aqua Trail, or dive into the Wave Pool! Krushnai Water World makes for a great picnic spot, due to its scenic location. Their snacks counter will keep you fed and watered all day, just as long as you remember to stop long enough to eat something. If you need a break from the water, there’s also a (dry) gaming zone for you to enjoy. From Monday to Friday tickets cost INR 400 for kids and INR 500 for adults. On Saturday, Sunday and public holidays, it costs INR 500 for kids and INR 600 for adults.
