Fun City at Ambience Mall in Gurgaon, now a humongous 15000 sq. feet play destination for families has been a huge hit ever since it launched. With the recent makeover, Fun City is the only family entertainment brand in India to have introduced the country’s largest soft play area called Play Zone. Designed for children ages 3 to 10, Play Zone offers kids the space to slide, run, climb, jump and develop their physical, social, mental and emotional skills. The multi-leveled structure inside the Play Zone is a combination of climbing frames, interactive elements, crawl tunnels, padded obstacles, rope bridges, ball pools and slides which provides freedom to children to use their imagination in exploratory play.
The revamped Fun City at Gurgaon has brought the theme park experience indoors with a slew of new rides such as the DiscO’16, an elaborately designed game that comes with a back restraint which leaves both arms and legs free to move while the platform movesback and forth along a half-pipe track while spinning, leaving everyone shaken and stirred! The other rides in store, which are all the rage internationally, include the Bumper Cars, the quintessential bump-into-each-other car ride that is hugely popular globally; the Drop N Twist, the high tower drop with a twist; the Flume Ride where seal shaped cars shimmy down a channel much like a polar sled; and the Mini Convoy, a chain of different vehicles including jeeps, Formula One cars, bikes, even animals all moving in tandem along a themed course.
