    I will be taking my family to Ramoji Film City by the end of the month.

    Wherever you go there are bound to be expenses and I like to be prepared and know what all costs are involved and so would like to know what the Ramoji Film City ticket price is for both adults and children.

    Please do mention any deals which are available.
