    I have joined this India Travel Forum so I can find out what the Queens Land Theme Park Chennai entry fees are. I have researched on the web, and different pages show different costs, some show a difference of even a Rs100 - Rs200.

    I need to find out the exact entry fee so we can decide whether to take some of our family friends with us or not as we would be paying for the trip.

    I would also like to know whether the park has food stalls inside and know if the food is overpriced or not.
