Hyderabad has plenty of water parks and theme parks, but here’s a whole new hangout that’s a mix of fun, exciting, and larger-than-life experiences backed by cutting edge technology. Thrill City, near Sanjeeviah Park, is the world’s first virtual reality fun town park spanning two acres with over 50 games for all age groups. Offering a healthy gaming experience, using simulators, the park has drawn large crowds since its inauguration in September.
What’s breathtaking about Thrill City is the flight simulator that uses a Cessna 172 aircraft. The aircraft is typically used to train pilots for their Commercial Pilot License (CPL). This is probably the first time that a Cessna 172 has been made available to the general public. Aditya Bhandari, a trainee pilot who guides visitors on how to use the stimulator, says: “This is the first time in India that an amusement park has installed a Cessna 172 for people to have a flying experience. airplane. My co-intern and I work as a team to guide people on how to use it.
Considered a ‘futuristic amusement park’, Thrill City has many other attractions such as arcade games, motion cinema, Splash water ride, VR games, and a food court. An original Skoda is installed in the arcade, in which you can experience six different movements. Likewise, there is a bicycle that offers a Cycling to live. “You might find VR and arcade centers around town, but not at this price. My favorite is the flight flight simulator; it’s a completely new experience, ”says Sandeep Reddy, one of the managers.
A little further down there is Splash Coaster – an aquatic merry-go-round in which people sit on a train that crosses the water. There is also a VR roller coaster for those who are afraid of the real stuff. Don’t forget the Monster Theater where horror, thriller and adventure films are shown with 3D visual and motion effects.
“I have worked overseas for many years and wanted to bring this technology to Hyderabad. This place has a lot of things that can keep you engaged. We made most of the games and simulators. Best of all is the Monster Theater. It is the largest 4DX motion cinema in the world manufactured and installed by us. It can accommodate 104 people on a single platform, where they can literally feel the movie. This is a huge thing for us and I am happy that it has been a success, ”said B Abraham, Technical Director of Thrill City, who has 35 years of experience. There’s also a domed theater that offers 360-degree visuals. For sports lovers, the park has a sports bar and grill, Free Kick. There is also an indoor badminton court and a cricket ground. The gym and the temperature-controlled swimming pool are other facilities to discover.
