Creating a new theme park experience in India, is Adlabs Imagica — set to open in the first week of April — over 300 acres in Khopoli on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. With international theme park standards, the park will be a first-of-its-kind 365-days, all-weather fun destination for children and adults, which can accommodate 20,000 visitors at a time. With 21 iconic attractions, including India’s largest roller coaster, 4D simulation rides, and some Indianised rides, the park provides a wholesome entertainment experience for its visitors. Rides are themed to recreate unique experiences from Europe, Ameirca, Middle East, India and Africa, special rides for children as well, food delights and much more.

Gold Rush Express
Welcome to the Wild Wild West! A mine train will take you through the world of Jesse James and Butch Cassidy. Travel through ravines and ranch grounds of the cowboys to parlours and saloons of the pistol-wielding outlaws. This ripping ride drops you from the height of 20 metres and sends you speeding through tunnels and abandoned gold mines. With a special shot ‘n drop attraction.

Prince of the Dark Waters
Immerse yourself in the world thriving deep under water as a realm of mythical mermaids and a price looking for a great treasure. The story comes alive in an eight-minute animation film created inside a 360-degree dome. With 6 projectors that display onto screens as massive as 288 sq meters, this show will transport you far away into the dark waters.

Wrath of Gods
Meet the Gods of the Temple of Harmony — Vayu, Jal and agni, who are angered about the intrusion by archaeologist Dr Chandra. The wrath of the eternal Gods is recreated through live theatre, special effects, multimedia and animatronics in this disaster ride — while you are still inside the temple.

D2 Dare Drop
Shoot to the sky and drop to the ground! This ride will launch you to crazy heights in a matter of seconds and give you just a few seconds to soak in the view before it drops you four times faster than the speed of gravity. Feel the crazy blood rush and your stomach turn inside out as you go up to 40 metres with 4 G-force each way. Not for the faint-hearted.

Scream Machine:
This gigantic rotating pendulum will give you the feeling of flying and swinging. Spinning all the while, it will rise to steep angles much above the ground level with a whole lot of suspended air time. The ride oscillates to an angle of 120 degrees to a height of 45 metres and is the tallest ride of its kind in India.

Starting shortly Deep Space
A high adrenaline rollercoaster that takes you into outer space among galaxies and black holes while passing various planets and meteors. Uniquely constructed inside a massive dome, the ride is itself a sight from miles away. It is India’s first dark coaster which works on Linear Synchronous Motor (LSM) magnetic launch, which has been used in India for the very first time. This technology shoots you to crazy speeds in a matter of mere seconds, for an out-of-the-world experience.

Nitro
India’s largest roller coaster, and one of the largest coasters in Asia, promises to be the most high adrenaline ride that you will ever sit in. Five loops as you are suspended off the track so you feel you are flying. This wild ride rises to 132 feet and goes at the speed of almost 105 km/hr.
