If you are in the area, definitely visit Magic Planet!

Magic Planet is part "magic theme park" and part "let's support differently-abled children and makes their lives shine". Established by a famous Indian magician (Gopinath Muthukad), Magic Planet both entertains and educates.

There are two sessions per day: 9:30am-3pm, and 3:30pm-9pm (ish), including pauses for lunch and dinner (food is available for purchase). As a group, all visitors are ushered between performance venues -- street magic, circus, childrens' performances, etc. There are clocks throughout the park and each performance starts strictly on schedule. While the website only says 3pm-9pm, you can actually attend the morning performances. Just turn up, or give them a phone call beforehand. (I attended the morning performances.)

Performances are typically in Hindi, with a splattering of English. Frankly, this doesn't matter since magic is universal.

The grounds of Magic Planet are amazing, and are the cleanest parts of India I have seen! Larger-than life figures make excellent photographs, each venue is independently themed and decorated and there is even a wonderfully-decorated garden area.

While magic is the drawcard for the Park, the focus eventually shifts to the 'differently-abled' children who attend the park. The children live at home with their family as normal, but attend the park as an alternative schooling environment and they very much enjoy participating in performances and meeting visitors. A newly-opened Universal Empowerment Centre "trains differently abled children to operate in an office or business environment through specially developed methods and internships."

The children participate in magic and dance performances, some of which are totally performed by the children. At the end of the performances, you will be requested to make a donation to the Different Art Centre and it is obvious that the money is used well.

Magic Planet is difficult to access via public transport, so a taxi or auto is recommended.

I visited Magic Planet on 21/12/2022 along with my wife, daughter and a family friend from Maharashtra. It's really a world of wonders which can entice any one. It was a stunning experience to wach the performances of specially abled children. We could watch most of their talents only with tears in our eyes. Many a time we went too emotional and failed to clap to encourage them. Gopinath Muthukad has created a heaven for this children to groom themselves into multi-talented intellectuals. We were also very surprised to visit the gallery where these children's mothers exhibited their handcrafted items. Today when I look back into my day at MAGIC PLANET, I experience that some force is pulling me to visit again which I will certainly do. I recommend to everyone to visit Magic Planet with family.

Very nice place for kids and family. Everyone equally enjoyed the amazing place. All the people here are very courteous , explains really well.
We were so happy to see the diifertially abled children to play various songs, Dances and magic. We felt that our loud claps and actions made them very happy.
This place is package of different magic shows and drama mixed with magic. Whole place is neatly managed and well organized.
This place needs lot of support from us so that this initiative helps lot of special kids and make them empowered.
Thank you Muthukadu sir for this initiative and never give up attitude and make this place run smoothly.
Seeing the joy of those kids were the best day of my life.

You shows are forcing me to be more empathetic..

MAGIC PLANET...

I went in with a lot of apprehensions, all ready to be disappointed and kept reminding myself I was doing it for my kids...

I had thought of the Rs.1600 I paid for the four of us would be a sheer waste of good money...

...and to top it they announced that the first one hour we would be entertained by the differently abled...

I was quite disappointed for we weren't pre-notified...

I always thought I was doing enough for society in my own way being a Life Skills Expert and Trainer...

*BUT THE GREAT HUMAN BEING GOPINATH MUTHUKAAD & HIS TEAM MADE ALL THESE ANXIETY BURSTS DISAPPEAR INTO THIN AIR*

'We Enjoyed' would be a total understatement...

They just *WOWed* us all the 5 hours with nonstop entertainment ...

We laughed, we cried, we screamed... We just let loose and let them take over 300 minutes of our lives ...

I have a new found respect from deep within for Gopinath Muthukaadu.... He is on a life journey that I have yearned for in life too...

Magic Planet is a place you shouldn't miss out on...

A place where no politicians, no celebrities, no dignitaries, no popular businessmen stand to shine in limelight... for everyone who walks into Magic Planet has a lesson or more to take home in humility, humbleness, generosity, dedication, life and most of all that we are not so able as we think we are...

The differently abled teach us that we aren't trying hard enough as abled people ...

The unity, humbleness, joy, creativity.... all bundled together to show you life... truly loved entertainment shows put-up...

Running us from theater to platforms, platforms to yet other theaters... Each of these settings to notch their entertainment skills to another higher level ...

I must mention about the support staff, the customer care staff, the teachers, the organisers, the management, the artists, the performers, their maintenance staff and of course their leading light the supremo Magician Muthukaad....

MY FAMILY & I SALUTE YOU ALL FOR THE EXCELLENT WORK THAT GOES BEHIND SUCH A WHOLESOME ENTERTAINMENT KINGDOM....

each of you have contributed to your very best with a smile of confidence in these troubled days of covid-19...

Social distancing, hand sanitising and following the covid19 protocol to the 'T' was maintained leaving us to throw caution into the air for once knowing we are in good hands and guided in safety...

Allowing us to mentally relax and enjoy the entire multi talented artists to thoroughly entertain us with Magic, Music, Singing, Circus, Illusions, Art... Ohhh the list is too long...

I thank all of you at Magic land for my never ever forgettable 5 hours of stupendous entertainment.

🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
