Appu Ghar was a famous amusement park situated in Pragati Maidan, which has been closed since 17th February 2008. It was also the first amusement park in India, which was inaugurated by the Late Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi on 19th November 1984. The park was named after the mascot of Asian Games 1982, 'Appu'.
This amusement park covered around 15.5 acres of land that is now used for Delhi Metro Station and a new section of Supreme Court of India.

1. Title should summarise your review
2. Elaborate. Instead of 'Good sightseeing place', write, 'Beautiful temple with intricate architecture' or 'Kid-friendly park but limited rides'
If you want to visit the best amusement park in and around Delhi then Appu Ghar is the right Place. Appu ghar is one of the oldest Parks and it also includes water rides. A fun filled place to go during afternoons. Appu Ghar can easily be reached via metro.
Appu Ghar used to be a heaven for kids. Recently when the lease of the property got over then the place got shut down. Now it is shifted to the Gurgaon as Apno ghar. Appu Ghar had two parts to it. An amusement park with popular rides like My fair lady, bhoot bangala, Crazy Car among others. They had a ride for people of all ages. The second part was a water park with one of the best water rides in India. Though Apno Ghar is all set and ready but Appu Ghar will still be missed.
This attraction no longer exist, except in memories as the location has been converted into a Delhi Metro station. The owners are however, coming up with a new park at Gurgaon, just next to the Huda City.
Full day entertainment with family!! A lot of rides to entertain all age group. Don't miss the monster house. It was brilliantly made, I actually got scared. The toy train takes on a ride of the complete park which is a unique thing about this amusement park which I never found in any park!! The other attraction which I liked was the boating, bumper cars, pendulum boat and Go Karting.
First of all Hotel is not too expensive and service is awesome. Rooms were good and smelt nice...Reviewed Today
