I went to "Wonder La", a theme park near bangalore, yesterday. Its was great fun there. Actually, we were about 17 as a group. In that 17, 5 were non-TI, Chandrasekar n Abirami from Novell, Sandhya n Thenmozhi from Honeywell and Me. This trip was planned by my TI friends and i joined with them. All the credits for this trip goes to the TI guys, who took care of everything from Transport to the Lunch... we went in a swaraj mazda...
It was b'day for one of my friend in TI, we call him "DON" (actually, made us to call him like that). So we stopped somewhere on the way to the park for his b'day cake-cutting, followed by the b'day beats...
All through the way to the park, we played "Anthakshari". Its was the battle between tamil and hindi songs, as 7 were from tamilnadu and the rest from other places in India. I have never played or seen such a kind of anthakshari... As they dont know the tamil songs (actually, they dont even know tamil words), we used to decide the song which we are going to sing next, before they finish their song. Then we put the alphabet, with which they end their song, at the starting and sing the song which we decided before. And i think they did far worse than us, as they used to sing the same song again-n-again... But we'll enjoyed a lot...
The battle came to an end as we reached the park. Our Finance Manager, none other than Kumar, got the tickets for all and we entered the fun land at around 12pm.
I dont remember the name of the first ride, but the ride is all about going up, followed by a free fall... As it was a holiday in Karnataka, there was a huge crowd at the park. so we waited for more than half an hour to get in that ride. Then we went for the ride called "hurricane". We chose that as that was the only ride with little crowd waiting. We waited in the queue for a little time only. But that was compensated by the problem in equipment. So we waited in the seat of that ride for a long time. We all got fried under the hot sun. Finally they said it's not working, and we came back disappointed without riding. But we were satishfied by the next
ride called "maverick", which kept us upside down for some time. The next ride, i dont remember the name, was good as we could see all our faces. It was like a wave, going up and down... it started in circling forward first, then backwards... Then to a ride named "Insanity",my most fav ride in the park... it tumbled us like anything... We dont get any chance to think which side we will be moving... It was so good that i went to that ride twice.
After all these dry rides and standing in the long queues for each ride, its not strange to get hungry... we were hungry to the core. But by the time we went to the restaurant, there was no meals. so we all had fried rice and/or jeera rice with some soft drinks.
We then got ourself prepared for the water rides and the enjoyed each and every ride there. We even had some races in some of the rides as to reach the farthest in the rides.
we then moved to the "wonder splash" as the cart like rail wagon splashes the water as we descended from the cave like structure.
Then we all went for the "RAIN DISCO" at 6 pm. there everyone was dancing non-stop for about 20 mins in an disco environment and water pouring from above. dont get scared or control you laugh, as i say that "everyone" includes me too.
we then spent some time in the wave pool. As it was getting late, we all then prepared to move. As we changed the wet clothes, we had some snacks and then we decided to go for the "Giant Wheel". But to all our disappointment, the honey-bees ruined our ride. The great thing about that gaint wheel is that it was mounted on top of a ten stories building. So after some photo session, we all dashed ourselves in the "Dashing Car". Then we all prepared to leave the wonderful land. we took some snaps at the entrance and the bus, and boarded te bus.
But it was not the end of our fun. The fun continued as we started playing a game called "Mafia". This was introduced and explained by abirami n chandrasekar. It was very good game. Its all about logic and find from others reactions. We all got involved so much that we didnt realize that we reached our place. all the BTM people got down there. Sandhya n thenmozhi went home and me, chandrasekar, sowmiya,abirami n naveen went to "Friends corner", a small restaurant near our place, had some good chat and good dinner too. So finally, the fun day ended at 11 pm, as we went to sleep.
