Photo TR : Italian parks May 16-18, 2007


Recommended Posts

Last week we visited Mirabilandia, Gardaland & Movieland.

 

May 16 : Mirabilandia

 

After a 2,5 hours drive from our hotel at the Gardalake, we arrived at Mirabilandia.

All 3 parks where firsttimers for us and we decided to go for the coasterpark on the first day. The theming in the park was better than we expected, especially the entrance street and the Katun theming.

 

Here are the pictures.

 

 

 

Important : as this is my first tr, i obviously entered the pictures in reverse order ( = preview order). Sorry about that. Iso re-entering the pictures in the correct order, plse look at the Mirabilandia pictures in reverse order !!

Nice report and photos and seeing some of the others rides at Mirabilandia. I never got to see much apart from credit whoring the coasters. Just couldn’t get away from Katun the 2nd best invert I been on as it never had a queue the two day I was there.

 

I see Katapult has left, shame never got to ride that as it was close

 

I look forward to next visit and try the others rides there again sometime in October, unless again the park is dead one’s again

May 17 : Gardaland

 

Gardaland was only 2 kms from our hotel, so we arrived at openingtime. We were very surprised to see huge crowds and terrible lines for buying tickets. We did not understand why Gardaland had opened only approx 6 of 26 pay-desks with such lines. Once inside the park, we had to wait maximum 5 minutes for the attractions so the crowds inside the park were excellent.

Coasterwise, this is not the best parc but there some other excellent attractions and great themings, sometimes even a bit overthemed imo.

 

Here the pictures, this time in the correct order

May 18 : Movieland

 

The smallest park of the 3 parks we visited but imo the most charming : although the crowds were minimal, there was a LOT of live entertainment all day around. I sometimes wondered whether Movieland has the right licences for all the names and characters in the park.

It is a growing park and hopefully they will be able to add some major attractions & coasters in the next years. The park will then definitely will become a very interesting park.

 

Here are the pictures, again in the correct order.

 

Thanks for reading my TR's.

In a dark maze under the ground, you have close encounters with Freddie Krueger, Hannibal Lector, ... There is even an onride picture taken with one of the actors.

The new attraction : Tomb Raider Machine was not open yet. You could however get a free ticket to come back when it would be open (btw, Mirabilandia is doing the same)

First show we did : Movie Magic. I do not recommend this show if you don't understand italian. And even if you do speak italian, i think the show is not worth while.

I really like your TR and it's very helpful for me, also because I am going to visit those 3 parks next month.

 

I have a couple of questions for you:

From the Movieland Studios park, Was that Hollywood Tower (Intamin 1st-gen droptower) already operational?

Because this was the parks new ride from last year, and I never heard that it was open for the public.

From that Tombraider topspin ride you said it was not open yet, but do you know an opening date?

 

Last year Mirabilandia had a great looking Schwarzkopf rollercoaster with the name Katapult. You did not tell anything about it and no pics from this coaster too. What happened with this ride??

I really want to ride this rollercoaster.

I have to disappoint you : Katapult is no longer there. Imo it looked like a crappy ride anyway.

There is however still a wild mouse coaster called Pakal if i remember well of which i didn't take any pictures either, as i was looking to Katun all the time which was right next to this wild mouse.

 

The Hollywood tower drop ride was open and is a very weird experience.

The Tomb Raider top spin is opening in May i read on the brochure and only the theming needs to finished i think but as there was not much action going on last Friday, i doubt whether they will be able to open in May.

How were the ride operations at Movieland Studios?? When I was there, only a few attractions opened with the park. I'd guess we spent around 3 hours in the park, and we probably spent 2 of them just waiting for the attractions to open. A shame really, because it seems like a very nice park (except the X-area)

No problem this time. Some rides (horror house, U571) closed for 30 minutes during the big shows, but for the rest of the day, all rides were open and operational. For Magma, we had to wait until a truck was more or less filled but this did not take more than 5 minutes either.

Nice photos and nice TR. Katun is really an awesome coaster. I really hope they give it a new paintjob soon because it's getting a little bit too rusty!

 

Yeah, I noticed that too. This is probably because of the Adriatic sea being very nearby. In Blackpool P.B. e.g. , it isn't difficult either to spot rusty tracks.

Rusty or not, Katun rocked in any case : impressively themed, amazing first drop, smooth inversions and very powerful.

No; that lift is not for people but you don't have to climb all those stairs because there's an elevator.

 

The queue for the slides is really messed up because there's one queue for all the slides so sometimes you wait 15 minutes to take the elevator for a slide that has no wait.

 

What did you think about Sierra Tonante? I've heard that this year was a lot smoother than what it used to be!

Sierra Tonante was much better than I expected. As it were my first rides on this coaster, i can't compare with before. The ride was pretty smooth only the breaks were terrible. If it is smoother than before, what is the reason for that ? New wheels ?

Katun has a higher drop, is longer, ... but i still like Nemesis more mainly because of the landscape settings Nemesis was put into : the rocks, blood water, the waiting row, the small lift hill but longer first drop, ....

 

Katun certainly is an excellent coaster. I would put if before Black Mamba & the Dragons.

That theming in Gardaland is unbelievable; one of the best looking parks I've seen.

..and the kiddie coaster in Movieland MIGHT be the best ride ever built!
