At the very first day during my Dinajpur tour, i have decided to visit the Shopnopuri Amusement Park situated at Aftabganj of Nababganj. This is one kind of theme park, and its built using a vast area(around 920 acre). There are different sector inside the park, and you need to buy ticket to enter separately.

There are several ways to reach the theme park of shopnopuri. You can reach at Fulbari railway station using train from dinajpur. Or you can reach at Fulbari using bus. There are several buses you can use. But best one is the "Mail" bus service for Dinajpur-Bogra route. Ride on that, and just get down at "Fulbari Dhaka Mor". From Fulbari, you have to reach the park using auto.

The bus for the Fulbari is available at "Jora Bridge" of Dinajpur town. It will take you around 2-2.5 hrs to reach the amusement park from the town. The road from the town to park is really nice, typical north bengal natural beauties.

The entry fee for the theme park is 20 taka per person. At the gate, you can find two statue of angels are waiting to welcome you inside the park. After entering the park, you'll find one of the most artificial beauty from Bangladesh.

I have already mentioned that there are several sections of the park. I have visited the "Fish world" first. The ticket is 5 taka for each person. Inside this part, you can see some artificial water plants, fishes, and other water animals. Also the stause of mermaids made the place really beautiful. This part is still under construction, but lovely to enjoy. I love this part mostly than others.

Then the next one was the "Animal Kingdom", where you'll find several artificial animals like Dinosaur, Emu, Snake, Flamingo, Pegasus, and many more like that one. I didn't like this place too much, but I think the kids will do. The entry fee was 5 taka.

Then I have move towards the "Rongdhonu Art Gallery" which comprises of different kinds of sculptures, and paintings. Once again, this one also require you 5 taka. This part of the theme park is severely under construction. I think it will take around another 2/3 months to complete this one. So its not that much enjoyable till then.

There is a small place, where a dude used to display magic for the viewers. Its not that much high profiled magic show, but still plenty of things that will satisfy you for you 5 taka. "Moha Maya Indrojal" is the name of the magic show.

Finally, I have then moved towards the "Zoo" of the theme park. The main thing that attracted me to enter the zoo was the white peacock(peafowl). I love to watch the full plumage of the white peacock. Also the zoo has other animals and birds. This is small, but nice enough for the visitors.
