Adlabs Imagica is now open. Book your trip!
hi this is just amazing another Ramujee film city in Maharahtra now
Atlast something new for Mumbaikars and Puneites. An excellent attempt to create an amusement park of international standard. Some of the rides are very good like Gold Rush Express - a roller coaster ride, D2 Dare Drop but the best of all and for a life time thrilling experience do sit in the SCREM MACHINE ride - a spinning pendulam.
On the other side they have some unique theme shows like RAJASAURUS RIVER ADVENTURE, Cinema 360 - Prince of Dark Waters, I For India - a flying experience, Mr. India - The ride, Alibaba aur chalis chor - to test your shooting skills, Wrath of Gods.
For the kids they also have few rides.
As far as the food is concerned they have some theme restaurants like Red Bonnet American Diner, Zeze Bar + Grill ( african flavours), Robertos food coaster (chinese, italian, south indian, chaat etc), arrmada tapas bar. The food is very good.
Price: weekdays: 1200 for adult and 900 for child (excluding food)
weekends: 1500 for adult and 1200 for child (excluding food)
If your child is under 4' then they are not allowed in some shows and rides also and for them charging 1200 for them is too exhorbitant. Secondly the staff at robertos food coaster is too slow in taking orders and serving food (wont be albe to handle large crowd). Also some of the rides and some shows are yet to be operational.
Overall its a great place to visit for a thrilling and awesome experience.
More coming next week!
Quote from the founder:
Source:About funding of the park, Shetty said, “Banks would have funded it a lot easier had we brought in Disney or Universal (Studios) as our partners. But we don’t want to be their franchisee since our emphasis of theme being Indian content. We haven’t copied anything from anyone,” he said.
