That sunrise is gorgeous. The coasters look good, too, haha.

Same here! I love following them around and see where they are heading to! I'm just really bad at figuring out these clues! Keep it going!

Here are a few pics from our visit to Adlabs Imagica today...
image.jpg
Adlabs Imagica was a very pretty park. It reminded me much of some of the nicer Chinese parks like Chimelong Paradise or the Happy Valley parks. And again, it's nice to see another country that puts effort in theming, not just slapping down roller coasters. There were some individual rides at Imagica that had more theming than most Six Flags parks.
image.jpg
The front of the park and their signature B&M floorless, Nitro!
image.jpg
Wrath of Gods is a special effects show which reminded me of Posiden's Fury at Islands of Adventure. Very well done.
image.jpg
Elissa hatched from a dinosaur egg? Who knew?
image.jpg
There was plenty of "streetmosphere" around the park.
image.jpg
The Wild West mine train was fun! Great theming around the coaster.
image.jpg
First drop in Nitro was funky and fun!
image.jpg
Nitro was a fun ride. Kind of reminded me of Insane Speed or Batman at Six Flags New England.
image.jpg
The haunted house was amazing! Park dark ride, part live scareactors with a "surprise" ending! Seriously one of the better dark rides we've done!
image.jpg
And for dark ride fans there is also a shooting dark ride!
image.jpg
Deep Space was IMO the surprise of the park! (This and the haunted house.) An indoor launched Premier coaster that felt "different."
image.jpg
Where most of the B&M elements all felt familiar, Deep Space was snappy, quick, and some moments of airtime where you wouldn't expect it!
image.jpg
There was also a little dark ride section before the launch. Really reminded me of Europa Park's Blue Fire!
image.jpg
While it's not OMFG intense, Deep Space really did take us by surprise. The launch was fun, inversions were quick, and while there was one trim brake where I wished there wasn't, it didn't detract from us having a BLAST on the ride! (Literally!)
image.jpg
To round out the focus on dark rides and theming, Imagica's "Jurassic Park" style dinosaur ride was also great! Really felt the park had a nice balance of attractions! Pretty sure India will become a TPR tour at some point in the near future! ;)
image.jpg
Overall, great day at Adlabs Imagica. This park should help put India "on the map" for theme parks. We will have a full report with videos and photos soon!

That park looks incredible indeed. From the pictures it looks like they really went a 100% on getting decent theming. Do you know if the park is part of a chain/franchise or is it completely independent, because that would make it even more impressive.

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

That's an interesting first drop Nitro has, I've never seen one quite like that on any other B&M.

That first drop on Nitro does look fun. Do they have that way because of a height restriction? The premier ride looks like a fun coaster and love that it has a little pre-show during the ride. Also, I really want to know what the surprise ending is on the dark ride. The park looks great from the photos posted.

Well it's nice to know B&M has built a ride now which is sort of like the ones they made 10 or more years ago!
The park looks really nice, I didn't know it had so much teming.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

To me it looks like Nitro is an exact clone for BTDK at SFNE sans the first drop.
