India’s first amusement park, Appu Ghar, closed in compliance with the Supreme Court orders in 2008 in New Delhi's Pragati Maidan, has found a new home—in Gurgaon.

To be set up on the lines of Disneyland on 58 acres of land in Sector 29 and 52A, the park will have an iconic 100-metre high structure, a 60-metre high ferris wheel, besides water park etc. The project’s foundation stone was laid on Sunday in the presence of Huda administrator Nitin Yadav in Sector 29.

Gian Vijeshwar, chairman, International Amusement Limited, said the park will be functional in two years. “A giant ferris wheel will mark Appu's comeback in Gurgaon,” said Robin Vijeshwar, MD, IAL.
