Waterfun park Surat

Surat the hub of Diamond and Textile trade in India was always an entertainment starved city. But now the dream of having world class entertainment facilities in this city of enterprise seems to be coming true.

The "Chhab Chhaba Chhab" WaterFunPark which offers world class entertainment facilities is coming up at Damka near the picturesque Hazira beach, just 22 kms. from the Sardar Bridge, Surat.

Spread out in two laic square yards of sprawling land located in the vicinity of the Arabian Sea, the"Chhab Chhaba Chhab" WaterFunPark promises to be an altogether different world. "Chhab Chhaba Chhab" WaterFunPark step into the majestic gateway of the Water Resort and be free of all tensions and worries of the routine life. Soak in the beauty of the gentle landscape and relax in the warmth of a friendly atmosphere.

Yes, Dolphin City was active in the 90s and early 2000s, but the dolphins could not withstand the heat, and passed away. Then, sea lions were used for the show, but PeTA activists got vociferous and had it closed down.

Interesting...

http://articles.economictimes.indiat...s-concept-plan

Gujarat may see Disneyland style theme park
Apurv Gupta, ET Bureau Jul 7, 2011, 04.51am ISTTags:Wonderland|Disney World
MUMBAI: The world's leading theme park operators—Disney World, Canada's Wonderland, Sentosa of Singapore and Genting of Malaysia—are in talks to set up a Disneylandstyle park in Gujarat, that could be bigger than the Disneylands in California, Paris or Tokyo.

The $2.1-billion project being developed by Mumbai-based by infrastructure and real estate firm, Atlanta, has already been cleared by the Gujarat Tourism Department. Ernst & Young has done the market research and financial modelling for the project, while the concept plan has been prepared by architecture and design firm, Morphogenesis, two people familiar with the development said.

One of the sources said, "A leading US investment bank has been mandated to work as the transaction advisor and to rope in a foreign player to join promoters on the project." Spread over 13 square kilometers, the site—Suvali Beach— has a 3.3 km stretch along the Arabian Sea coast. The beach is located around 20 km from Surat and will have five theme parks like nature park, amusement park, water park, beach park, ice skating and skiing dome, restaurants, hotels, studios, forest villas, beach villas, studio lagoon and apartments and villas among others, the sources said.


Thanks vinblr for pointing this out in the F1 thread...
