Innovative Film City is a theme park on the outskirts of Bangalore near Bidadi on the Bangalore-Mysore Higway.. Though initially planned as a huge studio for making movies, it was turned into a entertainment theme park touted as family outing destination.
Some of the attractions here are:
FunPlex 4D theater
Short movies that are not only have visual and audip effects but also special effects like your seats shaking while awatching action scenes in a movie or water will be sprayed when there is a scene showing a water ride. If you've ever been to Sentosa Island in Singapore, this 4D theater is very similar to the one they have there.
Figurines and statues of monsters, ghouls, ghosts and other eerie beings are on display here. Combining visual and audio effects this mansion promises to be heart stpping horror show.
