Thunder, EsselWorld, Mumbai, India

The first time I went to ESSEL WORLD, I was a small kid who was only 3 years old. I was too small to ride anything that I enjoyed. There only were three rides that I could ride -kiddies flume (a ride that has three tiny boats that only kids under 3 feet could fit in and…

Enterprise, EsselWorld, Gorai, Mumbai

Let me ask you a few quick questions. Are you above 54 inches in height? Are you you looking for an awesome ride at EsselWorld? Are you bored of Ferris wheels? If the answer is yes for all, I recommend Enterprise. I must admit, it looks scary, but it is really the best ride at…

Dizzy Mouse, Prater, Vienna, Austria

If you are at Prater looking for a ride that your child and you would enjoy together without paying a lot of money, this is one of the few. During my research, the combination of spinning cars and a rollercoaster made me excited about this ride before even visiting it. So much that whenever I saw a coaster…

Gold Rush Express, Imagica, Khopoli, India

As one scans the rides at Imagica, tucked away in a corner, at the far end lies a brown tall structure that is hard to miss. At first glance it looks like a wooden mine train, right at the foot of a dry, broken, rocky hill. As one approaches the coaster, you are surely transported back to the Gold Rush days…

Super 8er Bahn, Prater, Vienna, Austria

When I first visited Prater, it was a rainy evening. I looked longingly at enormous, high-trill rides. Nearly all of them were closed on account of rain. In spite of that, I couldn’t hold my excitement and jumped around with joy like a monkey looking at the feast of coasters in front of me. A few functional rides…

Enchanted Airways, Universal Studios, Singapore

At the age of 6 years, this was my first visit to Universal Studios, Singapore. I was excited about riding BiiiiiG rides, but I wasn’t allowed in any of them except Enchanted Airways. This is one of the few coasters that allow kids 36 inches tall to have an amazing ride – most require you to be 42 to…

Hoola Loop, EsselWorld, Gorai Mumbai, India

If you are at EsselWorld – India’s oldest, largest and most visited amusement park – looking for a looping ride, this is the only one. During my numerous visits to the park as a child, the combination of high-pitched rider screams, the amazing inversion and rider reviews made this a special ride I wanted to grow…

Volare, Prater, Vienna, Austria

This unique flying roller-coaster is situated in Prater, Vienna. The park itself is of historical significance and is perhaps one of the earliest amusement parks in Europe. When I visited the park in May 2015 on a rainy evening, one visit was not enough because all the big rides were closed. I came back the…

Nitro, Adlabs Imagica, India

Arguably, this could qualify as India’s best rollercoaster.  If you are in India, you just have to ride this coaster. It has all the characters of a good one – it is tall, long, thrilling and leaves you wanting to ride it again and again. People who love rollercoasters may even think of riding it…
