  1. Yes there are another dozen rides or so stored that will be installed in the future. They have to start somewhere... Bollywood needed some additional kiddie rides fast... it’s not a problem. However I find their theming very lackluster, it almost diminishes the coherence and beauty of the original park.

    What I see is LEGOLAND rides been placed in Bollywood which is not gonna help boost the park!

    There are threw big roller coasters from Six Flags already in construction stage now - two in Motiongate and one in Bollywood Parks which is the wooden coster and it will be a world record coster along with the tallest Skyflyer in the world which is already open now and the enhancement is still not finished - there are two costers stored for them from Six Flags for future use.

    Well as has already been said, all of these rides are from the cancelled Six Flags Dubai, which will most likely have had a kids area, along with the wheel, Starflyer and GCI coaster, all of which are in this expansion.

    A basic kids rides section might not fit Bollywood Park that well, but when you have a load of rides already bought, you gotta put them somewhere. If the Six Flags park has never been, this expansion may have been more immersive and in keeping with what is already at the park.

    Interestingly it looks like the RMC Goliath clone that also appears in the Six Flags Dubai concept art, at some point they switched to GCI for whatever reason, but intriguingly this makes it look like they switched after sending the rides from six flags to the other parks, which doesn’t make too much sense.
