Essel World Thrilling Adult Rides
Essel Group owns Water Kingdom and we are talking about the adjacent Essel World Amusement Park which has 10 Thrilling Rides for Adults that will increase your heart beats with all the fun filling your mind and soul. 2 of those rides Top Spin and Shot-N-Drop (Free Fall) are new and many might not have enjoyed if you been to this park few years back. Here are list and details of all those adult only rides. It is highly recommended to enjoy listed rides and adventures with little food or empty stomach. Few of them are must not post lunch as they slip flop at 360 degrees rotations.
Shot-N-Drop Free Fall
The only in Mumbai and claimed to be the tallest ride in India, Shot-N-Drop which is also called ‘Free Fall’, picks the group of people up at height of 190 Feet and gives a sudden drop till about 80 to 90 Feet and then again lifts till top and repeats the movement which might give you tickles in stomach and fear too. You can get an idea of how a bungee jumper feels in the thrilling ride with group.
Hoola Loop 360 Degree Roller Coaster Ride
Riding a roller coaster is so fun, Yet at speed of 100 Kilometres per hour for about 350 metres all ups and down and a 360 degree circle needs so much fun and thrill. The video below which i captured when riding this roller coaster will give you exact idea. I would recommend not to do what i did, As chances of dropping camera or phone is much higher and the loss kills all fun.
Top Spin Ride
Seems like a giant swing only initially, But as soon the music starts and the water fountain shows up, the movement of Top spin ride starts and the fun begins. Couple of huge swings then multiple rotations and unexpected movements with people screaming and having the fun. Such thrill and adventure will give chills but the wave of fun and excitement continues. This is comparatively a new ride which was not available if you visited almost couple of years back.
Enterprise ride is a big surprise for first timers and is always a preferred ride for all those who frequently visits. The name Enterprise itself say something about this ride. Huge, Thrill and fun of seating in a covered car seating. When the ride starts, all cars seems all simple, straight and feels the moves will be flat and simple. But within seconds the sleeping giant wheel gets up roaring to the sky and all the car movies to the direction upside down, straight vertical for next few minutes and few may feel scary and breathless for few seconds. Its not always that simple as it looks and Enterprise proves it all.
Go easy with rainbow, Not as much thrill compare to other adult rides as detailed, But Rainbow is a must to enjoy Essel world park uninterrupted beauty all in single ride. Complete park can be seen from above and not just that, Mangroves and other distance area can also be captured. Another fun is the weightless feel and those tickles in stomach when suddenly the rides moves towards gravity.
Slam bob is a wavy ride. Just sit in the car and feel the ride waves ups and downs at a speed which you might have not able to calculate just by looking at this simple looking ride. A rotation in this colourful ride also excites children in the park, But sadly as its a adult only ride they have to take all fun just by looking at it.

Let me explain you in a different way what Zyclone is all about. I risked this adult ride by capturing it while on the ride to just to give you feel of seating on the front Car Sea, For Zyclone and experiencing yourself in below video.
