It's funny because "plane" sounds like "plain" and "plain" means not much flavor.

Gardaland uses these red light/green light turnstiles to count people going to a coaster station. On paper it's a great idea, but in practice we see a lot of empty seats get dispatched.

Oh no! We are in Schindler's Lift! Joey! Quick! Get out!

This is probably the worst yet most hilarious joke I've seen in a long long time. Congrats!

Awesome start to the trip report though, Gardaland actually seems really nice!

Can someone bury me something in a flower bed at Mirabilandia?? Like, a map to some sort of treasure that you buried somewhere else in the park. I'll be there next week and would really enjoy this. Ok. Thanks.

I'm glad more parks are beginning to install these new Vekoma trains. They're sexy and look very comfortable. As said, they transform a 'meh...' ride into a 'Yeah!' ride. :airtime: :airtimer:
