How often do we hear of our friends proclaiming that they are travelling to far off exotic and expensive destinations either in their free time or in the holidays to experience adventure sports? Dubai in the UAE, parts of the USA, New Zealand and Australia seem to be the favorites if you want to let your hair down and sense the thrill of adventure at the same time. While most people would like to sample adventure tourism at least once in their life, travelling to these laces may not be feasible for everyone across socio economic strata.
This is probably exactly what Jimmy Mistry was thinking when he decided to design and execute India’s first and largest extreme adventure park – Della Adventure in Lonavala. Della Adventure is a vision in itself as it is a haven for adventure junkies across ages and genders to sample a taste of the crazy side of life. When Jimmy was executing his vision for Della Adventure many people asked him his reasons and he always replied with one clear explanation.
Across metropolitan cities like Mumbai and now Pune the corporate lifestyle has taken over healthy living for both the mind and the body. Quality outdoor recreation has always been a missing aspect in our society and one solitary place where the entire family can have a great time doing different things was a pipe dream until the advent of the extreme adventure park.
Now all of a sudden and for the first time ever in the region punctuated with the occasional theme park near Mumbai and amusement parks in Mumbai was an outlet where you could push your mind and body to immortalize and imbibe the spirit of true adventure like never before. And of course if Jimmy has envisioned this as a safe and clean place to have quality family fun, there was never a doubt that it met and bettered every possible safety standard there was to meet. Over a few hundred marshals patrol the length and breadth of the park everyday across its 70 plus exciting and relaxing rides and attractions alike to ensure that you need to worry about nothing, especially personal safety.
In fact the monsoons especially the month of July is probably the best time to visit the park. All the excitement and adrenaline that you are bound to experience over the action packed rides simply doubles in the pleasure quantities. The rains also bring alive the lush green landscaping of the facility and the hills its cradles itself in making it a magical destination to experience true extreme monsoon adventure in Lonavala. So remember, the next time you crave adventure do not look up an atlas or your old and stained copy of a travel magazine. Hop into your cars, fill up a bus or take the train out to Lonavala and come along to Della Adventure. We are international quality and yet our hospitality is Indian at heart.
