Adlabs Imagica tagged as India’s favorite Holiday destination as well India’s first and only International standard Amusement park spread out on 130-acre land, located at Khopoli (Raigad District), Mumbai – Pune Express Highway, which is appx 90 mins drive from Mumbai or Pune (appx 115 kms) and for longest time the place which I was itching to tick off on my bucket list. It’s been 5 years since it’s opened for public and the reason I couldn’t plan for it was traveling expense and traveling by road from Mumbai is nothing but tiring (as well annoying) and not to forget the heavy traffic jams scene. Car rental costing INR 9499 + 18% GST (return journey) for a group of 4 people with all meals which is crazy high and INR 599 per person for bus (one way) which is economical but again the road trip and the traffic jam☹️ If you feel me, this the right place you stop by 🙂 I am going to guide you how to enjoy Imagica without blowing up on your budget and get over from traffic jams drama in just INR 160 ㋡ Continue reading “Adlabs Imagica in flat INR 160 (A guide)”
