  • Water Kingdom Reopening



After many phases of lockdowns, the Water Kingdom family is all pepped up to reopen its gates and welcome you! For the very first time in the history of the 30 year old amusement park, we have been non- operational. However, we were always connected with you in these difficult times and we never stopped entertaining you through our digital platforms. On the other hand we were also ensuring the park is safer to visit again making it cleaner, hygienic and in a healthier environment. With newer guidelines, rules and regulations designed by us, you will now be able to enter your beloved park with your loved ones very soon.

Here’s a glimpse of how we were engaging with you, entertaining you and also in the meanwhile preparing to reopen our gates-

  1. Park Maintenance

    Spread across an area of 100 acres, EsselWorld has around 2 Lakh trees and plants thereby making the park pollution-free. From the time of its inception, EsselWorld has believed and has ensured of keeping a cleaner and a greener environment for the past 30 years. We also have 3 rainwater harvesting reservoirs that supplies water to the entire Park including Water Kingdom. The water park has an incredible filtration plant that processes 90 lakh litres of water every 90 minutes. With the outbreak of COVID-19, we have ensured of keeping our park and rides cleaner and sanitised in all aspects and will be continuing to do so regularly. Our washrooms, locker rooms, restaurants, etc are regularly cleaned and sanitised.

  2. Readiness for reopening of park

    With the unlocking phase begun in India, EsselWorld too is prepared to reopen its gates with all the necessary precautionary measures. We have carefully designed the new guidelines keeping in mind the health and safety for everyone’s wellbeing.

    • Limiting the number of guests: To begin with, we will be limiting the number of guests in our Park, irrespective of high demand.
    • Social Distancing: Social distancing is mandatory everywhere which will have to be maintained by staff as well as the guests right from the ticket counters to queues for ferry, entry in the park, restaurants, washrooms, rides, etc.
    • Mask: We will not be allowing guests and staff to enter the premises if they are not wearing a mask, however, we will also put up stalls at the entrances and even inside the park at various locations that will be selling masks and hand sanitisers.

    • Sanitisation: Since the outbreak of coronavirus, sanitisers have played a very important role and we understand its significance. Hence, the entire park, rides, our ferries, buses, toy trains, ticket counters, entrances, restaurants, washrooms, merchandising shops, lockers, locker rooms, all are sanitised and will be cleaned at regular intervals. Moreover, we will be placing sanitiser dispensers at various entry points as well as vending machines at an interval of 100-500 meters within the park.
    • Touch-free cashless ticketing: We are also encouraging touch free, cashless and paperless ticketing system where guests can pay online on our websites, other online aggregator websites, or even e- wallets.
    • Health and Safety measures: We understand the severity of the pandemic and the concern of each and every guest entering the park, hence we have also designed a self- declaration form which will have to filled in by each and every person entering the premises. On entering the Park, each visitor will be checked for a temperature by our trained staff.
    • Restaurants: Our restaurants have always maintained a standard of hygiene everywhere and we endeavour to continue maintaining it. Along with sanitising them we will also be sanitising the tables and chairs and place it at a distance to ensure social distancing.
    • Our staffs’ our family: Our employees on the other hand are a part of the Water Kingdom family and hence their safety too is equally important to us. Each of our staff members enters the premises with the masks on their face while their temperatures are also checked at the entry points along with sanitizing their hands.

  3. We will keep entertaining you: While we urge everyone to stay indoors, we are also ensuring of keep bringing in new, exciting and unique entertaining virtual activities for you. On Valentine’s day we hosted a week long contest #BeMyValentine. Contestants had to post a picture of theirs with their Valentine on Instagram, tag Water Kingdom along with #BeMyValentine and write why he or she is so special in their caption. On the other hand we couldn’t miss out one of the most important days of the year, Woman’s Day! On 8th March we hosted 40 Headmistresses of various schools from Mumbai at St. Mary’s High School, Charkop, Kandivali. The occasion became momentous when Ms. Bhavana Shinde, Assistant Director Ministry of Tourism, Govt of India also graced the event. Hosted in association with the Brihanmumbai Association of Head of Secondary & Higher Secondary Schools and Educational Tour Operators Association, Water Kingdom & EsselWorld Bird Park witnessed an overwhelming response.

    Water Kingdom also threw the ‘Apna Dance Style’ Challenge to its patrons on International Dance Day on its Instagram Page. On 29th April 2021, the Water Park’s Instagram page posted a reel with a choreographer dancing on the given song/ music, where participants have to dance on the same song in their own dance style- hip- hop, bollywood, freestyle, contemporary, classical etc and post a video/ reel on their Instagram Page.
