Wonderla Amusement Park is undoubtedly one of the best picnic spots in Hyderabad. The sprawling 50-acre park is a world in itself with thrilling land and water rides. Each of these rides is further classified into two types – kids rides and high thrill rides. Apart from these rides, there’s a mesmerizing space flying experience with Mission Interstellar. With 44 rides, which includes nine kids rides, spending anything less than an entire day will not suffice to cover and enjoy everything here. It is advisable to reach the spot as early as 11 AM.
This should be your first stop. Rides include Sky Wheel and other family rides such as Termite Coaster, Termite Train, Grand Prix, Crazy Cars I & II. Sky Wheel is on the 11th floor, where you get to witness a fascinating view of the entire city. Termite Coaster and Termite Train are similar rides inside a huge termite mound. While Termite Train takes you through a crazy track with steep climbs, Termite Coaster will make you scream your heart out. Grand Prix and Crazy Cars involve racing in small cars amidst thunderous background music.
If you plan the tour with kids, they also have a sleuth of rides like Kiddies Wheel, Carousel, Flying Jumbo, Moon Base, Convoy, Circus Train, Mini Top Spin, and Twist & Shout.
The high thrill rides include Recoil, Maverick, Equinox, Techno Jump, Space Jam, and Twin Flip T Rex. Recoil is India’s first reverse looping roller-coaster ride, while Maverick turns you upside down without following any patterns. Space Jam squeezes you both clockwise and anticlockwise and Equinox takes you 16 meters above the ground, only to hurl you around at 70 km/ph. Techno Jump moves you upside down around the axis, spinning like a carousel. Thrill rides are not recommended for people below 12 years of age and those with high blood pressure.
It is mandatory to change into a nylon outfit before you enter the water rides. If you don’t have one, you can exclusively buy a pair of a nylon shirt and trousers at INR 150 just outside the park.
Here, Rain Disco is an absolute blast where you get wet with the beats and lights that leave you craving for more. Wave Pool is an absolute treat for people missing the beaches. Equipped with artificial waves and a lighthouse, it gives the same feel as one at a seashore. There is also a quick 4D show – The Adventures of Chintu– spanning eight minutes for the kids. Other cool water rides include Boomerang, Fun Racers, Uphill Racers, Wavy and Vertical Fall, Harakiri, Mammoth, Lazy River, Sea Lagoon, and Drop & Tornado.
The best things to do after experiencing all water rides is indulging in a five-minute massage for INR 50.
This is India’s first space flying experience. Made at a whopping budget of INR 45 crores, Mission Interstellar is a must-attend spectacle that takes you to different planets. Designed and developed by leading pioneers in theme park design from US & Europe, this attraction was launched by popular actress Anupama Parameswaran in December. Space flying keeps you glued to your seats and is an experience to be cherished and remembered forever.
