History

In 1983, the Essel Group was investing for an amusement park in Mumbai[2], 6 years later, the group would open EsselWorld. In the same year, the park would open Zyclone, a Pinfari Zyklon Z40.

Later in 1995, EsselWorld would open two roller coasters, Aqua Dive, which is a Bombay Amusement Ride coaster, and Zipper Dipper, a coaster by the Blackpool Leisure Amusement Consultancy.

In 1998, Big Apple would open, which is a Pinfari Big Apple MB28 model.

After 9 years without opening a new roller coaster, the park would open Hoola Loop in 2007. It is another Pinfari Zyklon and is the ZL42 variation of the model. The coaster is the third roller coaster at the park to be manufactured by Pinfari.

As of June 2020, the park continues to operate.
