We had been to Innovative Film City twice: Pre-kid and Post-kid :-). I'm not sure how many can actually answer my question - why is it called a 'film city'? Honestly, the name is far from what is truly in the amusement park. The second visit was after a gap of 4 years. And in that gap, we hadn't seen much of an improvement. During our pre-kid visit, there were some rides that weren't in working order & during our post-kid visit, there were others that weren't in working order.
Our 2nd trip was the weekend after Modi's win with another family -- so our son had company. Since it was a weekend, people were swarming at the ticket counter. A sunny day in the month of May was a little on the tiring side for the kids as well as us. Upon entry, they have their people dressed up as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, etc. The passage (apparently, it's called the 'European High Street') to the main entertainment area is a long walk with shops & mini play areas along the side. Most of them are non-operational. Some things that we had not found during our pre-kid visit were pottery making, merry-go-round, horse ride, bungee jumping & a Dinosaur Park.
Our son liked sitting on the electric car and a walk around the petting zoo the most. The most fun activity was inside the Mirror Maze. And which kid is not in awe of dinosaurs (Fossil Museum)? The Skating Rink seemed missing during the 2nd trip. A walk inside Ripley's Believe it or Not & the Wax Museum made the kids gazing at each other & laughing along the way!
Innovative's website claims to have Zip Liner, Dirt Biking & Archery but we didn't seem to see it anywhere. Go Karting was in full swing though. Unfortunately, kids under the age of 5 are not allowed. Same rule with the Roller Coaster. The kids weren't too eager to enter the Haunted House.
We spent the most amount of time in Aqua World. The kids were hopelessly disagreeable to get out of the water! The issue here is - hard rules to follow a proper swim suit attire are not imposed. Men/women with full clothes enter the pool. This is highly unhygienic. In my opinion, Innovative has a lot to improve on this ground.
None of the restrooms are maintained well. Somehow, the placements were also not too comfortable if you have smaller children at hand. The Food Court is okay. They have a big seating area. Considering that families visit for an entire day, the options for a weekend are not all that great. I would suggest parents to carry ample water, hats/caps, band-aids and food [at least for the child(ren)].
In a nutshell, the trip was not a bad one ('cause the kids enjoyed) but not an excellent one either.
Honestly, we'd prefer Wonder La any day.
