In about few years, Bengalureans don’t have to fly abroad to have a Disneyland experience.

According to a report in the Times of India, the tourism infrastructure development has proposed to build a theme park similar to Disneyland model in north Bengaluru. The tentative choice of locations are Devanahalli or along Bengaluru-Tumkuru-road.

“The project may cost Rs.100 crores and would require close to 1000 acres of land," officials told TOI.

The newspaper quoted Gurleen Kaur, Vice-President, Infrastructure Development Corporation, Tourism Department is banking on the investors’ meet at the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) summit in Bengaluru to come across parties interested in taking up this project.  

The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) is a non-profit association that is internationally acclaimed for acting as a catalyst for the responsible development of travel and tourism to, from and within the Asia Pacific region.

TOI quoted her saying, “We need consolidated land for an integrated theme park. We are hoping to attract private investors to take up the project under public-private partnership.”

According to Livemint, Wonder La amusement park in Bengaluru and Kochi clocked a net profit of Rs.67 crores in the June quarter. The theme park in Bengaluru is spread over 81 acres of land making it one of India’s biggest theme parks.
