Sri Lanka is an island nation renowned for a great many things, from an enigmatic heritage to unprecedented geography, but never theme park. It seems that might change in recent times.
Guruge Park is quite unique in the sense that it explores Sri Lanka’s history, natural wonders while providing a range of entertaining rides and attractions.
Mayan Water Park
This area of the Guruge Park looks particularly beautiful at night when all the various lights bring the set-pieces to life in an unforgettable manner. The design of the park is based on ancient Mayan temples and is definitely unlike anything else in the country.
The park explores the island’s history going as far back as 500BC, allowing one to discover an unprecedented level of information. There’s also a ‘Jurassic Park’ where you can enjoy an edutainment experience revolving around dinosaurs. If you’re on vacation nearby, even if it’s at one of many Marawila hotels along the likes of Amagi Beach, this park is highly recommended.
Rides and Attractions
There’s a fairly comprehensive selection of rides and attractions to experience at the Guruge Park. There are some carnival-type rides for children, boat rides on Dhanawardana Lake, as well as a dedicated paintball arena for some more exhilarating fun.
