    I am Kolkata with my family, and my kids are going on about this water park by the name of Aquatica. I have looked it up, and all I know is that it is a water park.

    The main information which I need to to find out is what the Aquatica Kolkata entry fees are and what rides are available at the park.

    I also know that there is a resort within the park, so if there are any special packages if we stay at the resort, please provide details of that.

    What is Aquatica in Kolkata?

    Aquatica is a water park resort in Kolkata, comprised mainly of wet rides. It was established in 1999 by Vishal Water World Private Limited and is considered as the very first water park of Kolkata. It is one of the few theme parks of the city hence visited by many locals. It has also gained the admiration of many foreigners or out of the city locals because of the unique wet rides that Aquatica has in offer. The best part is that it has its own resort, so that families can spend a night or two here to fully explore the water park. For those seeking for a quick getaway from the humdrum of city life, Aquatica is a good option. Fun slides, refreshing water and thrilling attractions, these are the aspects that would surely keep you coming back to Aquatica.

    Where is Aquatica Located in Kolkata?

    Aquatica is located in Konchpukur, 15 kilometres away from the centre of Kolkata. Specifically, it's located at the Thakdari Road, just 15 minutes of walking from the Konchpukur Masjid. New Town is also just under three kilometres from the water park. For those with their own vehicles, they can take the National Highway 12 but exit near the Thakdari Road, where Aquatica is only just a few minutes off it. For those who would be relying on public transportation, your best option is via bus. There are many local buses from the city centre of Kolkata reaching New Town and from there, you can easily ride an auto rickshaw or cab to take you to Aquatica. There are also direct buses from Kolkata to the nearby Nicco Park so you can board any of those instead and take a cab from there to Aquatica.

    What is the Overall Vibe of Aquatica in Kolkata?

    Nestled in lush greenery of palm trees and various shrubs, Aquatica is a stunning escape from the usual buildings and malls that you are accustomed to in the city. The clear blue water of the swimming pools would lure you in, as if mimicking the beauty of the seas. It also helps that the pastel and vividly hued slides are there, providing for a lively vibe to the entire water park. The resort has very simple exteriors and interiors. The marble flooring, bright walls and all wooden furnitures take you back to your escapades by the beach. Overall, Aquatica exudes a coastal ambience, the turquoise waters and the alluring slides are enough to keep you occupied for a few hours of your getaway.

    We can divide the pools in Aquatica into three, which are the following: Wave Pool, Family Pool and Kids Pool. The Wave Pool is considered as the largest of its kind in East India. It is surrounded by sun loungers and shaded areas where guests can dine or rest. Wave effects occur a few times a day on regular intervals. The Family Pool is vast and has shallow water, with a variety of small slides and sprinklers to be enjoyed by all members of the family. The Kids Pool has shallow water too, with a replica of a ship at its centre where you can find some slides and canopied shades with falling water. You also can't miss the Aqua Dance (Rain Dance Section) and Lazy River.

    As for the slides or wet rides, you have a variety of options for them. First is the Cyclone, the newest addition of the water park to their slides. You would be dropped from about a 40-feet high tunnel slide before you plummet unto a funnel-shaped structure where you would then drop into the water. The Black Hole is a huge and spiral tube slide that would take to various curves before dropping you off the pool. You also have the Pendulum, where you would be dropped into a huge open slide that would swing you to and fro like a pendulum. Other usual slides such as Multi-Lane and Raft Slide can be enjoyed in the water park. The mini replica of the famed Niagara Falls can also be found in the water park, a favourite amongst photographers.
