Cuttack: The historic Bali Jatra in Cuttack is associated with many things but when it comes to fun and frolic for the visitors, it offers various amusement rides.

This year the main attraction among the amusement rides is ‘Ranger’ from Ranchi. This ride has been installed for the first time in Bali Jatra and is drawing lot of attention.

Speaking to, manager of the ride Jagdish Singh said, “People enjoy a lot on this ride. But they should complete a full circle in 360 degrees to enjoy the most which the  administration is not allowing. Previously we have travelled to many big fairs in Jharkhand, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh. There are no issues of safety as we have double locks in place.”

Visitors coming to the fair are fascinated by this hydraulic Ranger and despite its high price, people are giving it a try.

“This ride is amazing. It is a new ride and takes Rs 100 per ticket but that hardly matters as we enjoy a lot on this ride,” said Sakti.
