    We are a group of 15 adults and children and are all planning a group trip to Nicco Park in Kolkata. As we are a large group, I wanted to know what the entry fees would be for us.

    Some places state that if you are a group of more than ten people, then you get a certain discount so I would like to know if this applies to Nicco Park as well.
    Please post details about the group entry fees and whether there are any other offers or special promotions going to the park as a large group.

    What is Nicco Park in Kolkata?

    Nicco Park in Kolkata was established in 1991 and is considered as the best theme park in West Bengal. A joint venture between the Government of West Bengal and Nicco Corporation, the result has been a successful theme park established by both the public and private sectors. With its world-class rides, in terms of safety and quality, Nicco Park has become a favoured theme park getaway, not only for locals but also for foreigners seeking some wild adventure while in India. Did you know that Nicco Park is also home to one of the only two wooden coaster rides in India? Known as The Cyclone, this ride was patterned after the wooden coaster of Pleasure Land Southport in England. Want to know more about Nicco Park? Then continue reading through this guide to learn the attractions, facilities and entry fees that the theme park has in offer for guests.

    Where is Nicco Park Located in Kolkata?

    Nicco Park is located in Sector IV of Salt Lake City in Kolkata. Specifically, it can be found in Jheel Meel, just off the Salt Lake Bypass Road. It stands adjacent to the Carnival Cinemas which is under five kilometres away from the theme park's entrance gate. The nearest railway station is the Sir Gurudas Banerjee Railway Station, which is around seven kilometres away from the theme park. As a part of the Circular Railway Line, this railway station is directly connected to Dum Dum, Kolkata, Ballygunge and more. The theme park is also just 600 metres away from the Tank No. 14 Bus Stop. The Calcutta State Transport Corporation (CSTC) operates a few buses that indirectly reach this bus stop from other prime areas in Kolkata like Howrah.

    What is the Overall Vibe of Nicco Park in Kolkata?

    Nicco Park is spread over 40 acres of lush greenery all around a central lake. Plants, trees and shrubs can be found all around the theme park. Various animal statues, with the official mascot of the theme park, the tiger, can be found in some areas as well. As the oldest and first theme park of the city, the rides here are on the traditional side though very well-maintained. They provide a touch of vibrancy to the green surroundings as they are in assorted hues of red, yellow, blue and more. The water rides are less varied when it comes to options but their sparkling blue water is quite enticing and adds that beautiful sky blue tinge to the theme park. That's not all though, the presence of explanation boards explaining the concepts behind each ride provides for a learning experience too. The overall vibe of Nicco Park is green, fun and educational, truly a unique destination where you can breath some fresh air, enjoy and also learn.

    What are the Attractions in the Amusement Park?

    The Amusement Park is located on the central, eastern, southern and northern side of the park. The Amusement Park can be divided into three sections, namely: Family Rides, Kids' Rides and Thrill Rides. As mentioned above, there's a central lake in the park and you can enjoy Paddle Boating here. This lake is located at the heart of the park and is quite huge in size

    The Family Rides section has a collection of fun but safe rides that everyone in the family can enjoy, or even a group of friends can enjoy. Of course it has the usual rides like the Toy Train, Family Carousel, Crazy Tea Party, Caterpillar and Cable Car. The Lazy River is a fun but laid-back attraction where you can float whilst the water transports you from one point to the other. There are unique attractions too, like the River Cave, wherein you would traverse through prehistoric times with caves and temples all around, and Vortex with Iceland, a seasonal attraction filled with ice that everyone can enjoy.

    The Kids' Rides section has fewer attractions that are suitable for the little ones only. It has two main rides, the Merry Go Round and the Water Merry Go Round. Both are round and round rides but the latter is on a water setting. There's a Children's Corner as well, where slides, swings, monkey bars and other fun kiddie attractions can be enjoyed by the little ones.

    Onto the Thrill Rides section where an assortment of exciting but courage testing rides can be found. The star here is none other than The Cyclone, one of the only two wooden roller coaster rides of the country. Enjoy the thrill and adventure in this old-style roller coaster ride, with traditional painting style. The Pirate Ship is yet another must-try attraction which marvels in its realistic wooden facade. The Sky Diver is a big drop ride that takes at a height of 80 feet before dropping you for a heart-stopping adventure. The Water Coaster and Water Chute are both raft rides that drop you from a height into a lazy river, but the former is through a slide proper while the latter is through a traditional chugging rack. Other rides here are the Bull Ride, Moon Raker, Twist & Turn and Flying Saucer.

    There are also added attractions in the Amusement Park, most of which are on a separate chargeable basis. Shows like the Kung Fu Cowboy and Robinhood 4D Show can be enjoyed in theaters here. The replica of the Eiffel Tower can also be climbed for a panoramic view of the park. Oceanica is a newer attraction which features marine animals in aquariums. The Haunted House is not your typical horror house, as it rotates around while various scary themes, puppets and more come alive. Other attractions are the Mig 21, a defunct Indian Air Force fighter plane on display, and the Snow Globe, a realistic snow globe that has been turned life size.

    What are the Attractions in the Water Park?

    The Water Park is also known as the Wet-O-Wild and it is located at the western side of the park. The Wave Pool is the prime attraction here, a large pool with artificial waves mimicking that of the waves of the sea. Nearby to it is the Niagra Waterfalls, which is located upon an artificial rock edifice with free flowing water as if a natural waterfall. The Kiddies Pool and Pirate Bay are fun water attractions for the little ones. Colourful slides, sprinklers and buckets with falling water are the main features of these sections.

    There are also various adventurous water slides that the teens or adults can enjoy here. The Wave Runner is a set of four side by side slides with bumps along the way, where guests can race with each other as to who can reach the pool faster. The Family Swirl Slide is an open slide in which a family of four can traverse using a raft. Other slides like the Body Slide and Tube Slide feature twists and turns along the way for a more thrilling ride. For the music lovers, the Rain Dance would provide for grooving music while you dance around in tune of the sprinkling water.

    Gee, it looks like you have your own Disneyland in Kolkata. I am really surprised because I didn't know that India has such a theme park. Here I go again with my ignorance. Anyway, that's one good adventure for a tourist that can compete with other theme parks like Ocean Park in Hongkong and Universal Studios in Singapore. And it's a combined theme park with water park where you can soak especially during summer. That's one good adventure I wouldn't want to miss.
