    There is an amusement park in Kochi which is known as Veegaland Amusement Park and also Wonderla. I would like to know what entry fees for the amusement park are.
    I saw a price mentioned on the web which stated an adult ticket entry fee to be around Rs900. It didn't seem quite right, so I thought of finding out from members of the forum to get the correct information about the entry fee.

    I would be grateful if someone could please provide the entry fee costs for the park.

    If online ticket booking is different, please state.

    What is Wonderla (Veegaland) in Kochi?

    Veegaland was the first ever theme park venture of Wonderla Holidays Limited. It was originally launched in 2000 as Veegaland and was renamed as Wonderla in 2011. Comprised of both dry rides and wet rides, Wonderla is truly a wonderful getaway destination on the outskirts of Kochi. This thrilling adventure paradise is located in the midst of God's Own Country, all the more making the experience exhilarating and worth it. No stone is left unturned as every possible facility and amenity have been included in the theme park as well for the comfort of the visitors. After you're done exploring the city, spend a few days in Wonderla, where fun and adventure awaits you.

    Where is Wonderla (Veegaland) Located in Kochi?

    Wonderla is located to the northeastern side of Kochi, about 25 kilometres away from the city centre. Specifically, it is located in the Kakkanad Pallikara Road in Pallikara. If you're taking your own vehicle from Kochi, just traverse the Aroor Thoppumpady Road to the Kochi Bridge, then the Kochi Panvel Highway which would lead you to the Kakkanad Pallikara Road directly. The nearest railhead is at Kalamassery and Edappally, under 15 kilometres away from Wonderla. Trains from various parts of the cities directly reach these stations. There are also KSRTC buses that directly reach Wonderla from various pick-up points in the city like Fort Kochi and Ernakulam. Sometimes, you would also find private buses which have other destinations dropping off passengers at the main entrance of Wonderla.

    What is the Overall Vibe of Wonderla (Veegaland) in Kochi?

    Wonderla in Kochi truly highlights the verdant beauty of the state. The vibe is very refreshing, in stark contrast to the concrete jungles of the city that we're used to. It is located at an elevated hillock so you're granted the best views of the surroundings. From the entrance, you would be greeted by the signature monkey of Wonderla. Inside, you would enjoy the lush greenery, with lots of coconut trees and shrubs that have been planted to give shades and a cooling effect to the visitors. Then you have the vibrant hues of the dry rides, along with the sparkling blue water of the swimming pools, which gives a splash of colour to the theme park.

    What are the Attractions in the Amusement Park of Wonderla (Veegaland) in Kochi?

    The Amusement Park can be subdivided into three sections, namely: Thriller Rides, Kids Rides and Family Rides. The Thriller Rides section has a number of electrifying rides that only the very brave and of sound health should try. This section has the classic rides such as the Flash Tower, big drop tower ride, and Super Jumper, their spinning ride that also moves up and down. Twin Flip Monster is just like the name, as if a robotic structure with two arms has suddenly gone array and moves its passengers into various angles. Space Gun is their variation of a pendulum ride, but instead of just one cabin, it has two which are flipped in various directions. Wonderla Bamba and Maverick are also pendulum rides but supported by two arms instead of one. Equinox 360 would surely turn your world upside down, winding you in various directions until your stomach churns.

    Now we go to the Kids Rides, which are definitely milder but still heaps of fun. Classic rides such as Jumping Horses (Carousel), Happy Kangaroo (Mini Drop Ride), Pirate Ship (Mini Gondola Pendulum Ride) and Kiddies Wheel (Mini Ferris Wheel). There are two variations of the classic merry-go-round, like Flying Ammu and Castle Jet. For aspiring pilots, there's the Magic Plane and for aspiring race track drivers, there's Convoy. Jumping Frogs lets the little ones ride on frog cabins and embark on a bumpy journey to their leafy home. Kids Play is another must visit, where the little ones can spend the rest of their energy climbing stairs, jumping amidst balls and conquering slides.

    Last is the Family Rides section, where everyone in the family can have their dose of fun. Of course it also has the classic rides such as Dashing Cars I & II (Bumper Cars), Caterpillar Village (Wacky Rollercoaster Ride), Flying Boat (Gondola Pendulum Ride), Wonder Splash (Log Flume), Dancing Wheel (Round Up Ride) and Sky Wheel (Ferris Wheel Tower Ride). You can even enjoy panoramic views of the surroundings with rides like the Rockin' Tug and Wind Mill. Fire Brigade is an interactive ride where you can fight through raging fires while on a firetruck ride. You can also enjoy 3D shows in Adventure of Chikku and Cinemagic. You also can't miss the Balarama Cave, that is if you're not afraid of the dark, or monsters, or ghosts.

There are three Play Pools with the same features, there's a central play area that is canopied, and has various slides that the little ones can enjoy. There are also two Lazy Rivers, located at the southeastern side of the Water Park. Whilst on a raft, visitors can enjoy being floated idly by the river as it has a slow current to it.

    Aside from the swimming pools, the Water Park also has rides that one can indulge in. We can divide them into the Low Thrill Water Rides and the High Thrill Water Rides. At the southeastern most side are three rides that are fun but have some level of thrill as well. The Family Slide is an open spiral white slide wherein riders are placed unto rafts and then dropped unto a shallow pool. The Pendulum is a U-shaped slide that would rock you back and forth before you halt finally. Boomerang is a wide candy-cane coloured tube slide that ends up on a boomerang shaped platform. Other slides in this section are the Snake Slides, Fun Slides and Bullet Slides.

    The High Thrill Water Rides mainly have two slides. First is the Wavy Fall, which is a high and bumpy open slide that drops riders from a height of about a six-storey high building. Second is the Vertical Fall, which is a high and straight open slide that drops riders from a height of the same six-storey high building. Added attractions in the Water Park are the Waterfalls, set upon an artificial rock edifice, and the Rain Disco, where music and water amalgamate for a chilling good time.
