Uttar Pradesh Government has planned to develop an ambitious theme park project in Agra in collaboration with Bollywood actor, Sanjay Khan. The project will be built over a land area of 1,580 acres. The mega park will be a cluster of seven theme parks and international expertise will be required for developing the project.
Officials have said that the Agra Theme Park will be developed on the lines of Disneyland Park in USA. An amount of Rs 5,000crore is estimated to be spent for the project. The park will contain snippets of Indus Valley Civilization, pre- independence India town and a futuristic city. Prabhanshu Srivastava, secretary, Agra Development Authority (ADA), stated that Sanjay Khan’s company has been selected as the project’s strategic partner. He also mentioned that building up of such a project is expected to change the present status of tourism in Agra. Not only that, the park is also going to be a major tourist attraction in Agra.
By developing replicas of past and future civilizations, the theme park is going to be one of a kind in India. December 2016 has been set as the deadline to finish the project.
