Finally, after years of dreaming about going to the Happiest place on earth, we now don’t need the rich NRI aunty/ uncle or the fully paid MR given trips to doctors to be there.
Yes “The happiest place on Earth” is going to open here in…
Ta DA Daaaaaa
BENGALURU…Yes! Right here….Yes! In India…Yes! You can jump and cry those happy tears out.
According to the latest news, the government of Karnataka is forming an alliance with Disney studios and is planning to open a Disneyland in Bengaluru. What better news than this!
The Karnataka government is reportedly in talks with a private investor regarding land and other requirements for setting up the Happiest Place on Earth – Disneyland – similar to the one in Paris.
WHY IS BENGALURU GOING TO BE THE HAPPIEST PLACE?
Bengaluru is surely one of the best places in India to open this park as it has what Disneyland demands. In terms of climate, Disney looks for a place that’s temperate year-round. This means no miserable freezing winters, no wilting-hot summers which Bengaluru serves perfectly. And a perfect nightlife with amazing tourist destinations to visit nearby are nothing but added bonuses.
THE PERFECT SPOT IN BENGALURU
If the tourism department has its way, you could experience the California-like theme park in Namma Bengaluru itself. The proposed location is Devanahalli or along Bengaluru-Tumakuru road. Bengaluru-Tumakuru road is one of the most planned locations of Bengaluru and will surely act as a very popular tourist spot.
Vaikunta Hill, off Kanakapura Road, gives a bird’s-eye view of the future of Bangalore South. The hillock provides not only a 360-degree view of all of Bangalore but also the trajectory the development of the city will take in the coming years.
The 28-acre hillock, on Kanakapura Road and very close to Konanakunte Cross, will be at the heart of the path-breaking changes the city will witness.
THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE PROJECT:
The proposed theme park will be the biggest in the country. It will cost a staggering Rs 100 crore and require 800-1000 acres of land.
Bengaluru is already home to three amusement parks – Wonder La and Innovative Film City on Mysore Road and Fun World near Palace Grounds but this one will surely steal the show.
Currently, Disneyland is in California, Florida, Tokyo, Paris and Honk Kong, so it will be a big thing for India to get its name added to this list of one of the happiest places on earth.
Like all the Disney Land’s of the world we know this one will surely be grand and huge. One day inside it would be the best for all the kids in India. The rides I hope are more dangerous and adrenaline oriented, something that would attract foreigners to come and visit it too. Unlike other amusement parks, this Disneyland shouldn’t rot in the dirt after some time because of bad maintenance.
And what could be better than Harry Potter World being a part of it too? Because you know it, Once a Potterhead, AlLWAYS a Potterhead! And of course, all the beautiful Disney themed food.
And of course, all the beautiful Disney themed food shouldn’t be left behind too.
BENGALURU PEEPS VIEWS:
Upon reading various public opinions of people regarding this I got to know that a lot of people feel that this is not a very bright step. They feel right now Bengaluru is struggling with a lot of electricity and condition of road issues so instead of focusing on amusement they should solve these problems first. Otherwise, how are they planning to run an amusement park without electricity and proper roads?
Let’s see how everything turns out but for now, I’m really happy that Disneyland is coming to India!
Be excited and dream about all the Amazing rides that Disneyland India will have!
