Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Tuesday virtually inaugurated Biju Adventure Park at Gopalpur in Ganjam district.
While dedicating the facility to the public, Patnaik said it will attract youngsters who have a penchant for adventure sports and go a long way in promoting tourism in Gopalpur as well.
The park, developed at a cost of Rs 2.5 crore, is named after legendary leader Biju Patnaik as an honour to his aviation skills and aptitude for adventures.
One of the main attractions of this adventure park is a ‘River Crossing Zip Line’. The 250-metre-long to and fro zip line, which is first of its kind in the State, will give a panoramic view of the serene and scenic Gopalpur beach.
Besides this, adventure sports lovers can have a quality time as they can have variety of options to feel the thrill like a 40-foot giant swing, air gun shooting, bungee trampoline, mechanical bull ride, all terrain vehicle riding and netted cricket.
Those apart, several other sports for the sports lover are in the offing. They include rock climbing, rappelling, dashing cars, zorbing etc. In order to enhance global tourist footprint, these sports will be made operational soon.
