The water park is open between 12:00 noon and 7:00 pm on all days. There is an entree fee of Rs 150 and Rs 120 for adults and children respectively from Monday to Saturday. Sunday being the special day the fee would be little higher i.e., Rs 200 for an adult and Rs 150 for a child. Senior citizens need not pay any amount to visit the park. There are special offers for schools. The fare for a student varies from Rs 170 to Rs 190 depending on the number of snacks that they prefer. But this includes a welcome drink. Costumes are compulsory and are available to visitors on rent. Even lockers are provided on rent to store valuables. The park is a much suitable and attractive place to host marriages, birthday, kitty and theme parties, conferences, seminars, launch of new products and picnics. In fact the park can accommodate about 1000 people in an open air. It also has a conference hall which has a thatched roof. The idea behind it is to keep away the heat and also look different from the routine set ups. A group of 150 people would easily fit in here.
Food corners which arrange a variety of food for the visitors are present in the park.

The special attraction of all rides would be a two stage man made water fall from a total height of 19 ft. The fall in the first stage would be from the height of 11ft on a platform of 25’x12’ ultimately terminating to the lazy river making a second stage fall of 8ft. This would be considered as the most excited sport.
People from all walks of life just walk in here with great interest to have fun of a variety of water rides irrespective of their age.
