Costumes related FAQs

1. There is no dress code (costume) in other parks? Why is it here?
Sir/Madam, as per our knowledge all the well-known parks of the world do have dress code. This dress code is only compulsory for people entering water to enjoy rides, keeping all factors of personal safety in mind we insist people to wear nylon/lycra swim wear only. People moving around and not entering water need not change. Some people say they will not enter slides or any of the rides and therefore they should be allowed with cotton wear. Guest generally say like this but our experience say that once they enter the park they are tempted to enter each and every ride and then they don’t get entry on various slides. At this juncture they keep on arguing with the life guards who are responsible for the safety of the guests but can’t ensure it if the guest is not in proper costumes. The park is so big that the guest doesn’t feel like walking down to changing room, open locker again pay the costume and go back to the ride again this also spoils their happy and joyous mood.
2. Why cotton T-shirt or shorts are not allowed inside the park?
People who do not wish to enter water dress code is not necessary. But for people who wish to enter water a nylon/lycra swimming costume are compulsory, because if cotton costume are worn it soaks water and becomes heavier and gets clogged, there by obstructing the movement of the person in the slides or other rides. It also reduces your speed in the slides because of the added friction and the guest coming from behind may hurt you in your back. Cotton material even damages our slide and rides thus cotton material in not advisable.
3. Can I wear Nylon salwar kameez?
No madam! We have a strict policy of swimming costumes being compulsory in water rides due to safety reasons, and salwar kameez in not a swimming costume. We object on its loose fitting which affects your sliding speed and safety; it also damages the smooth surface of our slide. These are a few reasons for not allowing loose fitting outfits of nylon/lycra.

Synthetic (Nylon /Lycra material) is allowed here also. Terrycot is not allowed as it has Terylene cotton. This material is not safe while enjoying the rides.
