23 August 2019 - 196   - 0

Waters Edge, together with Melchers Project Management Ltd having announced plans to build a theme park overlooking the waters of the Diyawannna today held the groundbreaking ceremony for the park.

Fantasy Island at the Edge will feature a culmination of the three main elements of air, water, and land. The Giant Ferris Wheel will take revellers to the skies, while the water park will include thrilling rides and the snow chalet will take visitors to an ice kingdom of wonder.

The Snow Chalet will be built with German technology and will provide a unique indoor snow experience. Meanwhile, the water park is designed so that even a non-swimmer can enjoy the slides, waterfalls, water climbs, surprise fountains and so much more.

The 40-metre high Ferris Wheel will be one of the main attractions at the Fantasy Island with a viewing tower that will provide a bird’s-eye view of the Sri Lankan coastline as well as the central hills.

This attraction has no age restrictions and a typical ride will be a fun-filled 15 minutes. Visible from anywhere in Colombo, this will truly be the main attraction at the theme park.
