    I am from Ambala and the nearest and good amusement park to take my kids to is in Chandigarh which is Funcity.
    As the drive will be about 2 hours I want to confirm the Funcity entry fees, and know what is included in the entry fees. I know that there are rides there but I would also like to know if Funcity has a water park as well.

    Thank you in advance.
