Aurélie, Cyril, Priscilia, Florent, Elodie & I visited Italy on April the 29 & 30 and May the 1st. The weather was not that good during the 2 first days but day 3, he burn us
1st day was at Mirabilandia, the entrance of this park is pretty beautiful and let you face the lake inside, all the rides are around it! It still left a little bit of theming around the flat rides. But we get there for two awesome things : Katun and Ispeed. They are in my top 3 with Expedition GeForce, those two are amazing. After that day we went back to Lago Di Garda, where we had to spend 2 nights.
Days 2 & 3 were at Gardaland to ride Raptor. First of all I read lots of yours review on Raptor and was a little bit worried about the quality of that new B&M, but I think my opinion count : nobody talks about the steep first drop it has, steep enough to make you fly few seconds
after the turn around you get another taste of speed, the rest of the layout is fun but miss speed! The seats are very comfy, I'm a little bit fat as you'll see in the pictures and the thing about the seatbelt was right it was really just for me to not close it, but I enjoyed a lot the ride, it's definitely not a top ten but it's neither a bottom top, the themed area is just perfect for me. For the rest of the park, Gardaland is kind of Disneyland for Italians, park is clean, staff is gentle, some of the rides are really well themed, special mention for "Fuga Da Atlantide" and "Raptor".
We spend a wonderful week-end there thanks to Mirabilandia & Gardaland.
Thanks for reading, Fabien.
