Karnataka’s own Disney World may soon be sitting at the foot of Nandi Hills just outside the state capital Bengaluru.

Bengaluru Development Minister KJ George said on Friday that the park will be built on empty land at the foot of Nandi Hills under the public private partnership model. 

The Minister said the park will also have its own ropeway as a unique attraction. He also said that that barren land in the area can be utilised for a golf course, race course or a film city, if required.

George’s statement comes a month after the state’s Tourism Department announced that an adventure hub is proposed to be set up in Mysuru, with aero and aqua sports centres.

‚ÄúApart from jet skiing and kayaking, other aqua sports like still water rafting and bungee jumping have been proposed. Bungee jumping over water bodies is considered safe,‚ÄĚ HP Janardhana, Deputy Director of Tourism, Mysuru district had said on March 29.

Mysuru will soon become the adventure sports capital of Karnataka

The first proposals for a Disneyland-style theme park had come in September 2015, when the Tourism Infrastructure Development Department had announced that it would be built somewhere to the north of Bengaluru at a cost of Rs 100 crore.

The two locations proposed then were Devanahalli or along the Tumakuru Road.
