The drive to Ramoji Film City through ORR (Outer Ring Road) is no cake walk. My Google Maps really helped me reach there. Once on ORR, Keep driving and take Exit No. 12. However you shall see no sign boards or directions leading to this world famous film city. There is no option other than relying on Google Maps or taking directions from the locals who are courteous enough to help you (at least the ones I met). Once you reach there, the car parking charges are ₹50. There are two kinds of entry, one the normal entry for ₹800 and the premium entry for ₹1800. The latter one has various benefits and I chose to indulge myself and my family. The staff greeted me as they found me confused at the main entrance and gave me the options mentioned above. Once I made up my mind to get into the premium one, I was guided to the premium lounge. After that me and my family were treated like royals. There was a coupon booklet given to us which included welcome kit, one bottled water, one fruit juice, buffet lunch, AC coach for sightseeing of the film city, a guide for the group in that AC coach, evening tea and separate/premium entry to the attractions. The experience then was nothing but magical. It's a huge area, hard to be covered in a single day. The Freefall Ramoji Tower was nothing but a beautiful 4D experience of the film studio. There is also a live stunt show and a 20 minute show where they show you live how a movie is made with camera and sound effects. There are camera men all over the place who click your family snaps and then you may buy them from the stalls nearby (aping the concept of Madamé Tussads), which I found worth getting our snaps clicked. The guide Ms. Uma Rani was not only informative but also jovial and took care of us completely. All in all, except the hassels of reaching the Film City, it was a great experience. One important point to note is that they have a Hotel where one can stay overnight for ₹9999+taxes per night.
