OOH LA LA WONDER, OOH LA LA WONDERLA



I had been to wonderla, couple of times with my parents and friends. With Ramesh i was planning to go to Wonderla from long time, but it hadnt materalised till date.

We decided to go to wonderla sunday, and was ready around 10:00am, plan was to be there by 11am.(11am is opening time on sat/sun).Last moment my dad and my bro also decided to join us..We 4 left around 10:30am and reached there by 11:30am.We were a bit unlucky as there was a huge gang of college students and we had to wait atleast 20-30mins for each rides.

                            

When we stood in first que it was around 11:45am. As expected with this college gang we ended up standing in queue for 20-30mins for each ride, which wasted most of our time...We made our plans to start with Dry rides  first and then have lunch and then enjoy the water games.

                                             

Every time we stood in the line for a ride, the topic was about how scary the ride would be and i used to tell omg, i cant play this, let me step back(but ended up playing all:)Post the ride it was always thrilling and would jump into the line again to go for other ride. It was almost 4pm when we decided to have lunch.


We had lunch, in a restaurant  near the water pool. Lunch was tasty and was not very expensive..

We then changed our dress and went into pool. We enjoyed a while in water tubes, and enjoyed a theme where bucket fills water and pours it over. Ramesh, Bro and Dad enjoyed a lot  playing in Slides in water pool. I am scaredof water slides, but Ramesh made me slide in a tiny slide.. I managed to slide thrice in that tiny slide and enjoyed it a lot. It has lot more water slides compared to Innovative film city theme park.

Later i also played in  slide which carries us in rubber rafts and make their way down, negotiating curves and loops on the way, to end up splurging in a shallow pool. Though i was scared to death, i enjoyed once we came down.By then Artifical wave started, we headed to wave pool, and enjoyed  a lot in wave pool..

Around 6:30pm we came out, got  dressed and played  Water splash ride and Musical Fountain & Laser Show till 7:30pm...


Here is list of rides we played...


1. Wonderla Bamba
A high thrill 18 seated with the wonder la mascot, which takes you up and down in clockwise and anti-clockwise directions, with sudden, unexpected accelerations and abrupt drops from a height of 5.5 meters.



                                  


2. Crazy wagon
Crazy Wagon is the massive family ride themed like a horse-wagon. . It is an insanely oscillating wagon that swings in every possible direction. It moves to an amazing height of 21mt and appeals to riders of all ages, offering a huge orbiting sensation, with alternating movements of varying speed, both clockwise and anti-clockwise. The ride uses imported drive train and mechanical parts.

                                              

3. Equinox
Riders on this ultimate thrill ride sit in outward-facing suspended seats of 5.5 meter diameter that can seat maximum of 25 adult riders. The suspended seats mean that the riders’ legs dangle freely, and each seat has an individual shoulder harness with a lock sensor. The ring is suspended on a big arm of length 9 meters and this arm swings back and forth when driven by powerful motors in a seemingly pendulum motion. Mean while the ring of the seats starts rotating on in its axis as well. At its peak, the arm swings at a maximum speed of 70km/h, riders are upside down 16mt above the ground and experience a multitude of thrilling forces.






4. Y- Scream
Eight seats of capsules, each seat holding four riders, are suspended from a blow-like structure from a height of 20 meters. The bow swings and turns like a joint wheel, while the capsules themselves turns on their axis, making the occupants scream.



                              

5. Mixer
This is a ride that gives you the feeling of being caught in a mixer/blender. The capsule gyrates and moves in all possible directions giving you a ride you won’t forget in the immediate future.




6. Insanity

This is a four-armed giant of a robot with ‘four fingers’ to each arm. Each fingers has two capsules into which rides are safely harnessed. Using sophisticated hydraulics, the machine moves each arm and each finger independently, turning, twisting, and swiveling in every direction possible, giving you a ride that’s sure to drive you insane.





7. Drop Zone

If bungee jumping is what you fancied, here’s something just as exhilarating. Securely seated around a vertical column, Drop Zone hoists you up to a dizzying height of 17 meters, and then just let’s go, plummeting you to earth with all the force that gravity can muster. Up and down, up and down, till you’ve had all the free-fall you can handle for a day. Pneumatic dampeners cushion the fall and ensure you have a safe landing.







7.Hang Glider
Hang Glider is an adventurous ride that takes the riders a trip on the air at a dizzying height on steel cables and glides down at speed giving a feeling of flight. The movements are computer controlled using a complex system of hydraulic lifts and pulleys, and ensures the international safety standards. The ride gives an opportunity to have a sight on the whole Wonderla and its surroundings.




8. Pirate Ship
This is a swing in a shape of a wooden craft as a gather of momentum; it swings to an arc of 1800, giving you an accelerating rush of adrenaline. Riders are safely harnessed in their seats. Not for the week hearted.


                                           

9.Skywheel
Firmly straddling a 13-storey-high tower, the giant wheel with a diameter of 30 meters, gives riders a bird’s eye view of the park and its surroundings and the city beyond, as it slowly turns on its axis. Spacious lifts carry visitors to the top of the tower, which is a landmark that can be seen from miles around.

                                                 



10. Techno jump
This ride has 14 spokes arranged radically around a hub. At the outer end of each spoke is a capsule that can seat three. The spokes are raised and lowered hydraulically, while the whole contraption spins like carousal.


                                

                              

11. Wondersplash
This ride is an absolute must for every visitor to Wonderla. A bogie that resembles a raft made of logs is hauled up a hill using a conveyor and taken through a tunnel. On emerging from the tunnel, it hurtles down a steep incline at a dizzying speed and splashes into a shallow pool, sending a glorious spray of water and drenching the riders in the process. This is the fun ride suitable for all the age groups.


12. Termite Coaster & Train
Inside what appears to be a gigantic termite mound with a witch’s mouth for entry, are two popular rides – the Termite Train and the Termite Coaster. The Termite Train winds along a crazy track with sharp curves, steep climbs and dizzying drops. If that sound tame to you, try the Coaster. It will take you screaming, up and down hair-raising loops at break-neck spee



13. Musical Fountain & Laser Show
Wonderla boasts of India’s only indoor musical fountain where you can watch a colourful display as water takes centre stage and dances gracefully to the accompaniment of music and brilliantly choreographed lighting. This is followed by the enthralling spectacle of a hi-tech laser show. A not-to-be-missed extravaganza. Check with park assistants for show timings.







14. Water Rides:

Water rides include Wave pool,  Lazy river with water tubes,  Slides, and different
themes of water pouring from huge bucket, huge umbrella and many more..
Ramesh enjoyed water rides to core..








Below are the things, which we missed, because of time constraints..
Planning to visit them on our next trip to Wonder La....



3d (MISSED THIS)
Using high definition 3D video, multi-channel surround sound, high power blowers and hydraulics-assisted seats that move in perfect synchronisation with the visual content, rolly-polly monkey Chikku takes you on a adventurous treasure hunt journey through the dense forest, enjoying the serenity and beauty of it and facing the challenge of deadly cobra and other stiff challenges at the end achieves is goal. Cine magic 3D is an absolute family thriller that brings you the essence virtual reality cinema.

Hurricane (MISSED THIS)
This is a ride that looks like a giant three-bladed fan that rises to a height of 20 meters. Riders sit in secure capsules that form the blades of the fan. Each capsule can seat eight persons. As the fan turns, each capsule also rotates on its own axis, giving you the feeling of being caught in a whirlwind. Recommended age: 12 years and above. Not recommended for heart patients or people suffering from high BP.

Toon Tango (MISSED)
This is the ride for all the age groups where twosomes (or threesomes if you can squeeze yourselves in) are seated in one of the four capsules that emanate from a central pivot and are gently spun around as if in a waltz. There are multiple units.

Dungeon Ride (MISSED)
The Dungeon Ride is an intense and exiting ride though a dungeon hunted by its notorious jail warden’s ghost. The ride is based on a fictional account of a savage jail warden – Amarjeeth Rane. The ride explores the darkest recesses of a tormented mind and employs the most sophisticated computer technology to make the peoples blood run cold. This is one ride that challenges rider’s wits. This unique ride combines complex hydraulic and pneumatic controlled attractions and the entire attraction works automatically without any human interference.


Maverick (Missed)
Maverick, like the name suggests, is a ride that doesn’t go by the rules. It turns. It twists. It tilts. It swivels. It turns you upside down and every which way possible. It defies the rules of motion and momentum. The 21-seater raft hinged to an independently acting vertical column at either end does everything to drive you crazy. When you are on it you’ll scream for it to stop, but after you are done with it, you’ll want to do it again. Safety harnesses hold you securely in place while the machine goes through its paces.
