The members enjoyed their time in the Gama’s Ship which gave a glimpse to the historic Vasco D Gama visit to the Malabar region in the early decades. Mr. Gopalakrishnan M S (Crew Head), who himself is a retired nautical engineer briefed the crew on the historic Gama visit. The Sadhoo express was left with no more space as the crew occupied all seats for their stroll around the park. The team then took a virtual 3d ride at the 3d theatre and then had their foot dance to the tunes of Gagnam and Pistah Suma at the rain themed dance floor. Tora Tora, See Saws, Net slide, Roller Coasters and the Pirates Ship were few rides that the crew took in the pre lunch session. The crew then had a sumptuous lunch at the restaurant where Lays took the pride. Post lunch session saw the crew members enjoy their time in the cool water and bullet slides. Final mix was always left for the waves to mount by as the crew were all at the wave pool for the ups n downs. ‘Meesha Mama’ and ‘Shippu Mami’ were the find of the season with Sri.
