Trip to Innovative Film City

We visited Innovative Film City couple of weeks back. This Film City, IFC in short, is located 43 Kms from our house in Bangalore and spread over 50 acres of land.

We need to drive towards Mysore, go past Wonder la on Mysore road and take left diversion towards Bidadi industrial area.

We started around 8:30 am and took about 2 hours of drive. The road was okay except the patch on Mysore road where every vehicle has to slow down to halt due to congestion and bad road. After that it was smooth driving.

IFC houses 27 different facilities ranging from, Amphitheatre, Retail High Street, Food Courts, Theme Restaurants, Entertainment District with India’s first Dinosaur Park, Haunted Mansion, Cartoon City with India’s biggest Roller Coaster, Aqua Kingdom, Miniature city, Ripley’s Enchanted Mirror Maze, Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum, Funplex within 4D- Theatre, Louis Tussaud’s Wax Museum, Go-Karting, Mini Golf, Innovative Wannado City, Adventure Sports, Roller Skates, Fossil Museum, Fossil Hunt, Double Decker Carrousel, etc.

The standard package costs Rs. 599/- per head and though cheaper than Wonder la but we didn’t find the Film City very well maintained and interesting or attractive. It comes nowhere close to Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad though created more or less on the same line. In fact, we felt as if the crowd halted at Wonder la just 5 Kms before reaching IFC.

However, it was okay to spend a day there at the park with some of the entertainments and we were back in home by the evening.
