With schools over and summer blazing in, how exactly do you keep your children occupied without them getting on your nerves? Well, while there are activities galore for kids during summer, nothing compares to a cool and frolicking dip in water. And if it takes up the entire day it’s even better!
Cashing in on the soaring mercury are the water parks that have mushroomed across the city. Places like Water World at Koramangala and Ulsoor, and Wonder La have become “cool” destinations this summer where you can chill out with the entire family.
Take Wonder La for instance. Spread over 82 acres and situated on the Bangalore-Mysore highway, this water park is one of the largest in Bangalore. There’s a host of exciting water-based activities of which Wave Pools is probably the most innovative. You get to experience artificially-simulated waves that have an uncanny resemblance to the real thing.
Other water-based rides include Twisters, essentially a set of four water slides that take you through a series of loops before landing in a shallow pool of water. Water Pendulum is an unusual water-ride wherein one sways back and forth in a wide U shape, thus giving the impression of a pendulum. Other rides include Wavy and Vertical Falls, Hara Kiri and Lazy River, each unique in its own way and packed with fun.
For those who have cherished a fancy for dancing in the rain, but were too embarrassed to actually do it, there’s hope still. Wonder La has come up with the concept of a Rain Disco wherein you can literally let your hair down and groove to the latest beats under simulated rain!
If you are not in a mood to get wet, you can opt for a dry ride. Wonder La also arranges special rides for kids.
So, hurry pack up your bathing suits and check out your favourite ride!
