    I plan to take my children and nephew and nieces to Wonderla amusement park this summer.

    It would be the first time that I would be going to Wonderla Park and there is a lot of information I would like to know before I go there the main being the entry fee charges.

    My queries have been put in forms of questions so it would be easy to reply to them.

    1. What is the Wonderla amusement park entry fee in Bangalore?

    2. Are we allowed to take our own food inside the park?

    3. What are the opening and closing times of the park?

    4. Is there accommodation options in the park as well?

    What is Wonderla in Bangalore?

    Wonderla is a theme park resort located in the city of Bangalore. It was established in the year 2005 and was the second venture of Wonderla Holidays Limited, a private company. It was Mr. Kochouseph Chittilappilly who founded this theme park, along with the other theme parks in Cochin and Hyderabad. Amongst the many theme parks in India, Wonderla in Bangalore garnered the top spot for the best theme park in India, according to the ranking system of Trip Advisor.

Safety and cleanliness are two aspects that the theme park resort excels in, making it a family-friendly destination as well.

    Where is Wonderla Located in Bangalore?

    Wonderla is located in Jadenahalli in Bangalore, specifically in the Mysore Road. It is about 35 kilometres to the southwestern side of the city centre of Bangalore. From the city centre, just take the NICE Bangalore Mysore Expressway then take a turn into the Mysore Road to reach the theme park. The nearest railway station to the theme park is the Hejjala Railway Station, which is about 4.2 kilometres away. There are usually direct trains from the Bengaluru City Junction Railway Station to the Hejjala Railway Station. From the latter, you can just ride an auto rickshaw or taxi to reach the theme park.
