VGP Universal Kingdom What strikes you at the VGP Aqua Park as you enter is the most scenic man made beach by the most beautiful natural beach. The aesthetic appeal of the entire setting is beyond compare, the beautiful mandap and the story that unfolds, transports you to a different era but what keeps you grounded are the wild wild wet rides.

Here you find the right mix of rides the ones to de stress and the ones to give that kick you lacked all your life. Float on tubes on the Lazy River or crash into the water from 30 feet above the ground along with 5500 gallons of swirling water or maybe you can just slide head first into the water or just do the samba under the rain and if you ever thought of dancing with the waves then do it here in the wave pool that extends over 15000 square feet with 10000watts of music blasting in your ears. Donít swim just dance !
