The tourism department is expecting to attract private investors to take up the project under public-private partnership. The department is putting hopes in the investors' meet at the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) summit in Bengaluru. PATA is a medium through which the tourism department can find investors.
Bengaluru is housing three amusement parks already. Wonder La and Innovative Film City are located on Mysuru Road and Fun World is near Palace Grounds. Wonder La is about 81.5 acres in area.
The proposed theme park will be the biggest in the country.
