Wonder la – Amusement Park


VegaLand in Cochin, the same guys have opened an amusement park ‘Wonder la’ about 35kms from Bangalore on the Mysore Highway near a place called Bidadi. This was opened on October 1st 2005 and the rates for Adults on public holiday’s is Rs.480/- and on other days is Rs.380/-. There is a 10% discount till October 20th as a promotion offer. It is open from 11:00 in the morning till 7:00 in the evening on all days. Even though it was recently opened there was pretty good turnout. It seems on Wednesday 12th October 2005 there were about 3000+ people who dropped in.
It has about 26 water rides and 24 land rides. Once the entrance fee is paid there are no charges for the rides individually except that one has to pay for the food which is costly and it goes by default in such kind of places.
I went yesterday with my friend and even though it was raining throughout the day there were lot of people even before the gates were opened.

The best part is they accept credit cards for payment and no service charge on that, plus the queue is little less in credit card counter.
In the water rides, you got a wooden boat (runs on a track) which goes up for a distance and then comes down into the water splashing it all over and then back to square one.

There are lot of pipes in which one has to lie down flat with head above the surface and then slide into the water, the height varies and also the curves of the pipes. There is a pool of water where people can lie down on the air boat and spend some time.

The major attractions in the water rides are the almost near 80deg fall from the top into water. And the other once is artificial WAVE POOL where waves are generated in the pool and people get the feeling that one is on the beach side though there isnt sand underneath.

In the land rides you got the DROP ZONE where people are fastened up and then taken to a height and then dropped again taken up and dropped. (I had to lie on the ground to take this shot!!)

Another is in the model of a windmill called HURRICANE, in this people are lifted above land and then rotated clockwise anti-clockwise and also upside down (this is major fun to look at, though I did not go in). There are many more rides of same types but the fun element is always there with people making screaming sounds to some who are afraid but dont show it off.

Of course, this needs a special mention. The Virtual Reality show, people are seated in an auditorium and its a show of journey through the mines. You experience such an effect that you actually feel you are moving in a train inside the mine field. It spoils the fun if I write about this in detail. (My friend said they had the same thing in Cochin). One should be in it to experience it.

It is definitely worth a visit.
