We regret this accident says Adlabs Imagica
India’s first theme park Adlabs Imagica which was launched last year on April 18, 2013 at Khopoli near Mumbai, has more than 20 original attractions, including India’s biggest roller coaster ride based on the Bollywood film Mr. India.
On 5th February 2014, at approximately 1 pm, two adult guests suffered minor injuries while on board the roller coaster ride called Bandits of Robin hood. They were immediately transported to the nearest hospital and given first aid medical services.
According to sources the victims have been identified as 32 year old Purnima Rathi who suffered deep head injuries and her 16 year old daughter Mamata who sustained injuries in the lower jaw.
As the news of the incident spread, an official statement from Adlabs explained that the injuries were minor and the ride had been closed for safety inspection, but the park would remain completely operational.
“We have always complied with the maintenance and operational procedures recommended by the manufacturers of every ride. The safety of our guests and employees is our company’s utmost priority. We regret this incident but are extremely grateful that everyone is safe,” said Vincent Pijnenburg, Chief Operating Officer, Adlabs Imagica.
Ashutosh Kale, Assistant Vice President, Adlabs Imagica Safety and Security said, "In accordance with our daily safety procedures every ride is checked for safety and technical issues before being run for our guests through a night long maintenance schedule. 3 test runs were carried on the ride before opening it for the guests. We’ve never faced a situation like this before and we are coordinating with the ride manufacturer to ensure that no future untoward incident occurs.”
