I was indoors for most part of the holidays and as an outdoor person I got a bit bored and was itching for a thrilling experience. I heard of a new amusement park on the outskirts of Lagos and planned to visit with my family over the weekend.
My hubby asked that I call to find out the entrance fee per person, I was reluctant to call and told him it should not cost more than N5,000 / N6,000 per person. Dear hubby insisted I call to confirm and I got the shock of my life, N15,000/ person, exclusive of accommodation, food and drinks. Do the maths, 4 adults + 2 children = over N70,000.
That price for one day of thrill was too high and I was not going to allow my hubby to part with such amount. I went online and started searching for options. I was happy to discover that the Apapa amusement park had been refurbished and was in full operation.
It was an awesome experience, there were rides for both adult and children, all rides are neat and functional, friendly staff and pocket friendly, large parking lot. The food and drinks are a bit on the high side, nothing exorbitant but if you want to save cost, you may want to bring your food or better still eat at home and just come with drinks and snacks. Bringing your food in will cost N2,000. I also noticed a lot of people eating in their car.
Breakdown of costs are as follows:
Packing fee – N200
Gate fee – Nill
Ride fee – N400/ride. ( Except for 7d cinema which is N800, and one other super scary ride that is N1,200).
Ice cream -N200/cone.
Popcorn – N200/bag.
There are a number of convenient stores around where you can buy candies, water, drinks etc.
Note: You cannot pay in cash for the rides, you buy tickets which is N400/ticket, however it is cheaper to buy a booklet which consists of 10 tickets at N3,800.
I am not a good at taking pictures, however I am working on improving on my skills.
Enjoy the pictures .
