, New Delhi Review


The name of ‘Appu Ghar’ has become synonymic with the entertainment sector of Delhi. Perhaps there is nobody who is not aware of the name of it and whenever a chance arises, they never miss to visit it irrespective of the fact that many of them have visited it a number of times.

‘Appu Ghar’ is the first amusement park not only in Delhi but in all over the country. Located at Pragati Maidan in the heart of Delhi ‘Appu Ghar’ is equipped with all types of fun and frolic. Hence it is no wonder that it attracts not only the children but also their guardians alike.

The park was established to commemorate the Asian Games, held in New Delhi in 1982 and it was inaugurated on 19th of November, 1984 by Late Sh Rajiv Gandhi, the then Prime Minister of our country on the occasion of the birthday of Late Smt. India Gandhi, the First Lady Prime Minister of India. Since then the park has come a long way making a niche for itself in the mind of the people especially of the children. Spread over 15.5 acres, the park offers 24 immensely popular rides together with the beautiful Water Park - Oysters spread over 3.5 acres.

The ‘Appu Ghar’ remains open on all days of the week and the timings are from 1:30 pm to 9:30 pm on weekdays. On Sundays and other public holidays, the park remains open for a much longer time. It is estimated that on an average 4000-5000 visitors visit the Appu Ghar and the Oysters.
You can buy tickets on a package deal for all rides together or a few selected rides. Special discount on tickets are also available for students of schools, colleges and groups.

There are different types of rides, eating places, gift shops and what not! The fun-filled Mini-Disneyland the Water Park- Oysters luring you to give relief from the scorching heat or the Ice Games in winter, all are sure to make your visit to the park an unforgettable experience. All these things have made it one of the best attractions of the great city.
Here one can enjoy all kinds of fun rides like Water world, The Tower of Thrills, Hi Waves, Ripple n rain dome, a vast swimming pool. And then there are the swinging sensations like the Giant wheel, The Roller Coaster, the Columbus Jhoola etc.

There is a fully equipped store for the visitors, wherein you can get Swimming Costumes for both males and females either on rent or on payment. There are separate washrooms, changing rooms for ladies and gents Towels and other accessories like inflatable and floats are also available on a nominal charge. To keep your precious items in safe custody, lockers can be rented at a nominal charge and against a Refundable Security Deposit.

In a nutshell, here you can have every fun and frolic so as to help you shed off all your tiredness and recharge yourself with new vigour and energy. A visit to ‘Appu Ghar’ with your near and dear ones will certainly be an unforgettable experience for you.

I have visited this place long back. Came to know that this is closed not so sure of. But we all really enjoyed this place very much.
