A Nice place to unwind and enjoy.
Hi Friends, few days back there was a long weekend available, the one with four holidays in a row. I decided to have an outing with my family to a place where we can unwind and enjoy and I chose “Tikuji-Ni-Wadi” for it.
“Tikuji-Ni-Wadi” is an amusement park cum Water Park spread over 20 acres with lots of recreational facilities available where you can spend quality time by enjoying the water rides in the water park and normal rides in the amusement park. It is located on Ghodbunder road, Manpada in Thane (West) Maharashtra. The entry charges for the amusement cum Water Park is Rs-300/- Per Person excluding food. The entry charge for children below 3 Feet is free. Timings of the resort are 9.00 A.M to 7.00 P.M.
Let me give you an insight of this place as stated below:-
WaterPark:-We first went to the water park section which consists of a nice wave pool, big sliding rides starting from lower levels of height ranging from one storey to higher ones up to three storeys. You can choose the height levels according to your inclination and will. There’s a nice place called “lazy river” where you can laze inside the water using the provided inflated fancy rubber tyres provided and move along in the water with zest. Lots of other areas like theme park, splash pools are available where you can enjoy the different water slides accordingly. There are a lot of trained life guards surrounding each and every area of the water park to avert any possible untoward incident which may prove fatal. Other facilities include changing rooms for male/female, lockers to keep your valuables inside for Rs-10/- per locker before taking a plunge in the water and costumes for a reasonable sum for the water rides etc.You can carry your own costumes too.
Amusement Park: - The amusement park was a bit of a let down with only a few rides. Some of them were not working properly. It has a Mini family train running on diesel which proves very irritating if you sit just behind the driver as you may end up inhaling the fumes of the emitted diesel, so it’s better sitting at the rear portion of the train. There is an adventurous roller coaster ride which is great to enjoy and it really tests your physical and mental strength. You will certainly love this thrilling adrenaline rushing ride. Apart from this there is another ride that too is nice but there was a partial technical problem in it and hence we gave it a miss. There is a Go-karting track where you can enjoy the thrills of racing the formula one type cars. For the Go-karting ride however you have to shell out extra bucks. Same is the case with bumper cars. There are other kiddie rides and play area too for them. The children can also enjoy the coin operated play toy riding machines which are available indoors which is chargeable.
Food: - Regarding food you can only get Vegetarian fare here and there is a variety of it available like Gujarati, South Indian, and Chinese etc. You can order individually as per your liking at their available various food counters or else can also avail of their limited Veg.Thali at RS-120/- Per head in which they serve limited rotis/puris with one farsan,two vegetables, dal, rice, one sweet, papad,pickle and buttermilk. If your appetite is more then you can avail of their unlimited buffet fare at Rs-220/- Per head where you can enjoy unlimited fare on their tree-top restaurant. There are counters which serve tea, coffee both hot and cold and other soft drinks and snacks too. However the individual rates of some items were on the higher side.
Coffee house Restaurant: - There’s a good coffee house restaurant indoors where you can enjoy snacks with soft drinks, coffee and tea.
Cottages: - For people wanting to stay overnight there are sufficient cottages available for staying with the family with all the basic amenities available. The cottages are neat and clean. Some cottages are available with private terrace too and there are jhulas fitted in the outer gallery area of the cottage where you can just relax. The surroundings of the cottage are very quiet and calm. The rates of these cottages start from Rs-1800/- for a couple for a day.
There is a vast area besides the amusement park where you can rest under the numerous chikoo trees where they have provided many strapped four legged standing beds for you and your family to rest when you get tired after the thrills.
You can also host wedding event and corporate event, parties and get-togethers here as the place is very vast.
