    Hello, welcome to the forum!

    Ocean-park-in-Hyderabad.

    What is Ocean Park?

    Established in 1998, Ocean Park holds the title of being the oldest of theme park in the city. Ocean Park is comprised of two main areas, namely: Water Park and Amusement Park. For the little ones, this theme park is a fun place for frolicking and running around. Certain sections are designated for the children only, in order to provide them with utmost fun and enjoyment. For the adults, this theme park can rekindle their childhood memories. From the older rides, to the lush greenery, it can take them back to the simpler times. For both families and friends, Ocean Park is one of the best day outing getaways, as it just stays true to its tagline, 'Water Wonderful World.'

    Where is Ocean Park Located?

    Ocean Park is located in Gandipet, just on the outskirts of Hyderabad, about 22 kilometres from the city centre. Specifically, you can find it at the western outskirt of the city, just three kilometres away from the Osman Sagar. If you're coming from the city centre, you can take the Nehru Outer Ring Road and then the Shankarpalli Hyderabad Road. The Chaitanya Bharati Institute of Technology (CBIT) is the nearest landmark to the theme park, barely 15 minutes of walking away. The downside is that the nearest railway station, the Nagalapalle Railway Station, is around 20 kilometres away from the theme park. Your best option would be to take a local bus (Bus No. 6B) from the Ram Nagar Bus Stop which would directly reach the Ocean Park Bus Stop. From this stop, the Ocean Park is just a few minutes of walking away.

    What is the Overall Vibe of Ocean Park?

    Ocean Park appeals to both the young and old. It has this fairytale atmosphere, enhanced by the statues of dragons, various animals and other creatures. Shades in the form of large trees and palms are abundant within the theme park. There are areas for strolling or just gazing, in the midst of all the well-manicured lawns and gardens. There are also some sitting areas, some are just basic, while others are in the form of almost a gazebo-like structure. Both the water rides and dry rides are very simple, but somehow, close to the hearts of the guests, just because they've been around for a long time. Overall, the Ocean Park exudes a combination of nature-like and home-like vibe, which means you can get closer to the natural beauty of the surroundings while having that very comfort still.

    What are the Attractions in the Water Park?

    The Water Park can be subdivided into two sections, which are the Water Rides and Ladies Pool. The Water Rides comprise of a huge main swimming pool area, wherein the slides are located, a dedicated rain dance area and of course, a wave pool area. Slides like the Aqua Glide, Aqua Trail, Multi Lane and many more can be enjoyed in the main swimming pool area. The star of this section though is the Tornado, which is a long tube slide that almost resembles the shape of a tornado. At the end of the ride, you're dropped into the water through a small opening in the tornado.

    The Ladies Pool is a dedicated section for women as well as children below 3 and a half feet. It is comprised of a toddler's swimming pool, along with fun slides that are perfectly safe for the little ones. The water of the swimming pool is just shallow, so that children can enjoy swimming without the parents worrying about them. Slides like a Wide Slide, Wave Slide and Tube Slide can also be found within this section. Canopied areas with falling water and a tilting bucket can also be enjoyed by the women and children here.

    What are the Attractions in the Amusement Park?

    The Amusement Park can be subdivided into two sections too, which are the Kid's Zone and the Adult's Zone. The Kid's Zone is dedicated to small children or toddlers. It has an assortment of fun but safe rides that they can enjoy. The Jumping Frogs is the kiddie version of a safer rollercoaster ride. The Peacock Train is their version of a toy train ride, in the form of a peacock. There are also the usual rides like the Mini Pirate Ship and Mini Carousel that won't be missed by the little ones. Other rides are the Sun-Moon and Candor, which offer a bit of thrill for the children. Also located in this section are the Dry Slides.

    The Adult's Zone is where the thrilling and exciting rides are located, suitable for the teens and adults. There's a ride that's sure to spin you round and round, aptly named the Break Dance. You can feel like you're a pilot in the Super Jet ride, with jet-like seats and the sensation of surreal spinning in the skies. And finally, you also cannot miss the High Swinger, which can turn your world upside down as it takes you to great heights. All these rides are suitable only for the brave-hearted individuals.

    There are also some Chargeable Attractions in the Amusement Park. These attractions won't be covered by the entry fees so you need to pay separate charges for them. These are the following rides: Super Loop, Sky Cabs and Bumping Cars.
