Updated : November 20, 2020 04:17 PM IST

Wonderla Holidays runs and operates a handful of amusement parks, but the past 6 months have been a roller-coaster for them because of the lockdown.

However, starting today they open a few of their water rides in Bengaluru park. They have three parks; each in Bengaluru, Kochi and Hyderabad.

In an interview to CNBC-TV18, Arun K Chittilappilly, MD of Wonderla Holidays, said, “We need footfall of 1,000 per day to break-even at each park and we are hopeful that footfalls will come back soon.”

Wonderla’s monthly expenditure across the 3 parks is around Rs 5 crore currently and the company managed to cut costs by 70 percent.

Chittilappilly further said, “We opened parks on trial basis to see people’s preferences. However, we need at least 6 months to analyze consumer trends.”
