Guests are taken on a virtual trip into outer space surrounded by planets and galaxies in the attraction. The coaster reaches a height of about 56 feet as it goes through two crazy inversions at a very high speed. The ride works on the Linear Synchronous Motor (LSM) magnetic launch, which has also been used in India for the very first time. Unlike a normal roller coaster, which makes a slow first climb, through the LSM technology, Deep Space accelerates to very fast speeds in a matter of seconds. This technology was brought to Imagica by Premier rides, headquartered at Baltimore, Maryland, USA, who have created pioneering rides like the “Revenge of the Mummy” & “Mr Freeze” amongst others. Only a few large theme parks in the world boast of having an LSM coaster and now Imagica figures in one of them.
The Lost Astronaut found at Deep Space, Adlabs Imagica
The Lost Astronaut was revealed to be Varun Dhawan, a space enthusiast, who experienced first-hand the gravity defying phenomenon of an actual space launch. Deep space is truly an opportunity for everyone to relive the experiences of an astronaut during a ride on the deep space roller coaster. The idea of “The lost astronaut” in the search for his mission was conceptualized specially for the launch of Deep Space. The aim was to add that extra bit of excitement for guests to enjoy the ride.
Adlabs Imagica opened to the public on April 18th 2013 and since than has been strategically planning an extended opening phase where in new attractions will be introduced at regular intervals. By offering a mix of story-play and live experiences, this park is unique in terms of its international standards, scale, stature and the experience.
