"Amazing fun for kids and families"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 16, 2016
It is located near Gorai. Ferries are available to drop from Gorai to Essel World. I have been here three times. Better to go as a group, it's more fun. Amazing rides, dashing cars and rain dance. Must visit place.

"A place for a lot of thrill"

This is the place near from Mumbai with a lot of excitement and thrill. There are so many places and rides to visit. It has a canteen because you cannot bring outside packages in the Amusement Park.

"Not too Big, but one of the best"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 4, 2015
Visiting Mumbai? And searching for some fun and thrill must visit this Amusement park called Essel World. Rides here are damn too great and will definitely scare you, there are rides for everyone. Those who seek thrill must try Thunder, Shot drop, Rainbow and some roller coasters. Don't carry food from outside. Essel world is easily accessible by sea and even by road. Ferries from Gorai beach, Borivali take small amount of fees to get you there and I also recommend to take ferry instead of road it will be fun. Enjoy, keep travelling. WanderLust.

"Interesting hangout for a day"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Nov 21, 2015
Essel World used to be one of the best amusement parks of the country till a decade back. But with many other such parks cropping up across the country, this park might have lost the important, but its grandeur remains unmatched. Spend a day here, let your hair down and ride on the best best fun rides.

"Essel World - Lost its Charm"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted Nov 7, 2015
Essel World has lost its charm, that it used to enjoy 6-7 years back. Now place like Imagica has come up which is more exciting. Hence people has stopped going to this place. Even on weekends you will find this place empty. Earlier location used to be its advantage as it was away from Mumbai, but now the same has becomes its weakness as people started moving to a better accessible place like Imagica. The rides here are not so exciting. Some of the better concepts here are the Horror house and the Alibaba maze. Otherwise it requires renovation and innovation.

"The definition of family adventure"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Nov 4, 2015
Are you bored of normal giant wheels, slides and swings? This is the place for you, where every adult becomes a child again. The thrilling rides, adventures games and fun plazas are inevitably awesome. Some rides bring your heart out of you. There are some restrictions like minimum height etc. It's a must visit for family and friends spot. Seeing the busy schedule of Mumbai, it may be a week deserved break for Mumbaikars.
