Essel World & Water Kingdom is the largest amusement and water theme park in India. Situated in Gorai Island, this is the only international-style amusement park built within Mumbai.

The amusement park offers a variety of exciting rides, games and other attractions like standard roller coaster and adventure themes. Water Kingdom has waterslides for adults and kids, a drifting river and various theme cruises. Spread across an area of 260,000 sq. m, this amusement park is frequented by 10,000 visitors every day.

An auto rickshaw or BEST bus number 294 to Gorai cheek is available from Borivali. From either of the two, ferries can be taken to travel directly to the park.

"Striking car is actual fun"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted Aug 10, 2014
It was very good experience to visit Essel World and Water Park, both on separate days. Striking car is must. Surya Ride was also exciting. If you go in group, it would be more better.

"Truly a fun if visited with family"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted Jul 1, 2014
This is my dream place. I have visited Essel world more then 10 times. Whenever I visit Mumbai, I go to Essel world. It's in an island in between bay. We have to take boat to go there. Entering Essel world, you would get mad about the rides. Frankly speaking, its a truly a fun if visited with family. Your mind would get relaxed.

i think in Essel World, you should experience all rides. All rides are safe. It's a very good place for children. Must-visit place when you go to Mumbai.

"Popular amusement park"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Apr 17, 2014
It is one of the most converted amusement parks in India. With best in class rides and being India's biggest water park, this place really rocks. There are rides for the people of every age. And there are so many rides that even after spending the whole day you will not be able to cover the whole park. If you go on a Sunday or on a holiday then you will see a lot of crowd. So try to visit the place during weekdays.
