SRINAGAR: The government of Jammu and Kashmir is all set to construct a massive amusement park in Srinagar after taking proper references from global and national theme parks.
The Disneyland type amusement park will be spread over 100 acres and will act as a boon for tourism sector in Kashmir
News18 has reported that the Jammu and Kashmir government wants to hire an international renowned consultancy firm to advice it for development of a theme amusement park in Srinagar. The consultant will do a tour of theme parks managed globally by the likes of Disney, Universal and Ramoji, and study the best practices.
The vision behind this is “to catalyse growth in tourism sector and attract tourists from across the globe,” the document accessed by News 18 says.
The site is expected to be the prime location of 100 acres in Srinagar’s Tattoo Ground. JK Directorate of Industries and Commerce will undertake the project and may set up a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) for it, News 18 reported.
The document says the selected consultant in order to gather an understanding of the best practices being adopted by the theme parks across national as well as the global level would prepare a ‘Theme Park Benchmarking Study Report’. For preparing this report, references may be taken from the global and national theme parks.
“To undertake this exercise and prepare a comprehensive study report a team comprising of government officials and a team of three consultants would visit two global and two national theme parks,” the document says.
