Today, as a part of the activities organized by Chennai Bloggers Club, we went to the adventure games/sports theme park of Chennai – The Wild Tribe Ranch @ ECR, near Crocodile Park. Actually, this park — which previously functioned in Ponneri — will be opened to public only from tomorrow. However, bloggers and media persons were given a sneak peak into some of the adventure sports and games available there today. I don’t remember the names of individual rides – you’ll have to refer to the above linked theme park website for that.
One of the partners of this adventure theme park gave a talk on how they started the adventure park initially on a small piece of land, how they gradually increased the rides, their decision to move from Ponneri to ECR – the entertainment highway of Chennai, for a higher footfall, etc. We were then requested to experience a few adventure rides. The first pic and the below one are of the same mammoth ride with multiple levels of hurdles to cross.
In this ride, as you can see in the above pic, you can jump up and down supported by ropes. There is a ‘reverse’ bungee jumping ride also, nearby.
In this ride, six people sit and the ‘vehicle’ keeps rotating in multiple angles for 1.5 minutes.
This ATV ride should’ve been good fun, but somehow I missed riding this one too!
At last, my kinda soft relaxing adventure sport – a small swimming pool. No one went into it today, so I didn’t too 🙂
It seems. you need to get into this bubble (sorta wrap it around you), walk around the field, and kick the football in between the small goal posts. It’s obviously a team game but remember – you or others can easily knock each other down!
As you can see in the above two pics, there is a gallery with a stage in front of it with music, light and sound where you can perform or listen/dance to the live music.
This is the Paint Ball game I was talking about in my previous post on Mango Mist Resorts, Bangalore. So Paint Ball is available in Chennai as well, folks! No, I didn’t play this as I was too tired by the time we came here. The reason for my tiredness was playing ‘net cricket’ where I bowled a few off- and leg-spinners to a fellow blogger-batsman Somu. I was glad to meet many of my blog buddies in this venue today 🙂
So if you are looking for an adventure games/sports theme park in Chennai, The Wild Tribe Ranch may be the destination 🙂
