Some of the unique shows in the park include 5D theatre (as good as the shows in foreign countries), Manthira Arai (where the visitors can pose for photo in upside down posture), 3D show and Water Ski Show.

Most of the rides are free of cost whereas there are some rides for which the visitors need to pay additional fee such as water scooter, bull fight, Ko Kart and video games.

Happy travelling.
