Photo TR: Magic World Italy


Recommended Posts

Sorry it's taken so long for me to get the pictures of this place on TPR; my computer's been a pain in the for the last month.

 

Magic World is a small theme park located near Naples, Italy. It's one of the largest theme parks in the Campania region, drawing the audience that can't go to faraway parks like Mirabalandia or Gardaland. With a decent selection of flat rides and thrill rides, 3 small roller coasters, interesting food (including the famous Nutella crepes!), and not-quite-as-cheesy-as-the-park-name-makes-it-sound theming, Magic World is a good family park with some thrill factor.

 

I'll let the photos do the talking.

Parking costs? It all depends on if the guy is there or not!

1116.jpg.9c70b94af1b5339c0ef0729215ba4084.jpg

Skyline doesn't look too promising...

The admission system to this park is slightly unusual: It's not a 'pay one price, enjoy all attractions' system, nor is it a 'get in free, buy tickets' system. You pay 4 Euros for admission, but need to pay an extra 10 Euros for an unlimited ride band. If you'd just like to come into the park, it only costs 4 Euros, but if you want to do any rides (other than those on the list), you need to pay the full 14 Euros.

After you walk through the entrance, you're immediately greeted by Mr. Genie and the park's Zamperla mini-tower.

1128.jpg.d409433589077ae9a2b6f14a3695585e.jpg

I look excited now, but I'm sad to say it had even less airtime than an S&S Frog Hopper.

1132.thumb.jpg.474e74eedc5bc9179941c749cd3fb5f3.jpg

"Yeah! Napoli just scored a goal - Oh, I didn't notice you there. Welcome to Magic World!"

1133.jpg.4fd2e87b79afeec64119bfb76f983802.jpg

The waterpark, which isn't open now.

Map of this side of the park.

Ferris Wheel.

Magic Shop, where the employees are talking on their cell phones!

1139.jpg.a2e65b41d41d348802b81dfb6a9fbcfb.jpg

Do I spy... a Wacky Worm?

1143.thumb.jpg.c78fa81d4aa812158714db0c38cc6e0f.jpg

New coaster! W00T!

1145.jpg.d7c1cf3b04aa5974f4b4db0e6f19c8ea.jpg

Some random flat rides.

1144.jpg.2a6a5446a9377ce4893af070338c7269.jpg

yeeahh!!

1148.jpg.1c7053db86ac6c29c8daa8e27e0b3a76.jpg

Indeed, it is a Wacky Worm.

1149.jpg.ee29228a0c80f6679e77e6a68a703d6d.jpg

Not sad and pathetic enough to ride it, though.

 

Part 2 to come tomorrow!

Part 2.

1150.jpg.f45e55e8f3f9814c6426a3ccf0561f30.jpg

As you make your way around the park, you'll notice a very unusual mix of theming...

1151.jpg.6cb59ef5aefe4537c8fbe232b7127695.jpg

...and names.

1153.thumb.jpg.fbce16b8fb24623d207b9a18369c8591.jpg

Dumbo ripoff.

Ride sign spells it differently, though.

Back to Adventure Land.

1159.thumb.jpg.1e07d1d7f714f13739bcbd7e76e059e2.jpg

Or Rodeo? WTF IS IT CALLED?!?

1162.jpg.4083311af3f9be79c0923044dbcf0b26.jpg

Balloon people and clowns retreating for the break room.

1164.jpg.a0ad166ae37c18b6b3272818715b05e6.jpg

And now, ladies and gentlemen, it's time for something slightly disturbing...

1165.thumb.jpg.b7080a22059f0ff3cf9d372d5592c78b.jpg

It's a train ride called Rio Grande, but that's not the worst thing...

1166.jpg.ff5a12dccd651de04806d3eda56a6099.jpg

Cheesy American theming?... Not yet...

1167.jpg.d802d25decf94ad8c50d50b65f3c72bd.jpg

It's when they get to Native Americans

1169.jpg.2f0a80741b4f6936918f83671ec87e56.jpg

that they really

1170.jpg.eb0596a90789ffdc820eb76b0ba59cd2.jpg

screw up!

1171.jpg.a485642834fae3b39d37ea9c348a9706.jpg

Shoe: The Ride!

 

Once again, time is keeping me from posting more. I'll post Part 3 tomorrow.

Part 3:

1172.jpg.407665006a281950c94018852e96b33f.jpg

The upcharge section of the park, with bumper boats, a bouncy trampoline, a playhouse, and some kid sized ATVs.

1175.jpg.ba992ee6c95797a906c6cb10bc58a2b3.jpg

We notice this pizza thing and decide to take a picture.

1178.jpg.b7f93c092ebc03a7959f83cc70845370.jpg

Giostracavalli.

1183.jpg.49aad1ccdc2d296551c6094aa5219f38.jpg

The African Safari themed car ride.

1185.jpg.19777b80e99b05768b753b3310e0df23.jpg

Mom and dad had to pose with the elephant!

1187.jpg.b1a5a70ecbb02e71f9f4497be3f59f38.jpg

"RAAAWWWRRR! I am a hippo! Give me your firstborn!"

1188.jpg.87d460ddb091afb242a3343ceafbae8c.jpg

I didn't even know they had one of these!

1189.jpg.68bd68d508bcbb87bb0502278b32fb81.jpg

Is this called Stonehenge

1190.thumb.jpg.67c14e456562b094d7d664b42845bf7e.jpg

or Ranger?

1194.jpg.05441125b848255ad2dd7ec50034c02a.jpg

Onride 'Ehhhhh!' shot.

1195.jpg.a81f5322b6d22b87ba9e1f08b27ed04a.jpg

3.14 Rodant!

1196.jpg.2dc99a0e2571d67d90c0c24ad55fbc8c.jpg

Crazy Mouse.

1199.jpg.4a72be83a02f38b0b190621df5e6fb7a.jpg

I rode alone.

1201.jpg.ffba3183a2a77392f8dfdf7182e7f48a.jpg

It was a fun ride, though. I didn't need to worry about the 'clench & squish' ordeal. =)

1204.jpg.12af85c17b9d32853a29de2410aa47bd.jpg

The snack stand

1204.jpg.32b7a5d7c77b52215d79b83bf272af82.jpg

that sells 'American pizza' (pizza with fries and sliced up hot dogs on it)

1208.jpg.e23c78a9b0daf6285bd5955d971a3d23.jpg

and Nutella crepes! This place is just full of win!

1215.jpg.a36807fd2e7d043be1d1ab60111ba556.jpg

It's amazing how something so simple and delicious can be made in just a matter of moments with some pancake batter (I believe) and some Nutella!

1213.jpg.9753badb678af0c0688bf255a18951bc.jpg

If you continue behind the waterpark, you can reach the newer, more thrilling part of Magic World.

1219.jpg.9f60ebc64b9b6527093b76920d1bf93d.jpg

You can also get a few interesting shots of the waterpark through the gaps in the fence hedge.

1222.jpg.a3fe4d989210739dfda7e05a493cd333.jpg

At the end of the path you immediately notice some slightly more thrilling flats.

1223.jpg.dcc1cd915393c8de28d171f29bb9f589.jpg

The bumper cars.

1226.thumb.jpg.78c8038249e96d6f3f4f62ecc827e339.jpg

1227.jpg.4d6faf07654e7d2dc19c7510850cabda.jpg

1001 Nights style ride.

1229.thumb.jpg.f106c34fed56d1ae7885443ca692e1a7.jpg

1232.jpg.a2d6ad267b1c328cfa51054d82133cc9.jpg

It's straight up awesome! I personally enjoyed it.

1233.jpg.902af6bfdfd006291e8ddf727daabfef.jpg

Beemerboy is totally jealous!

1236.jpg.1cad658bbea52b86a12a6079a9accc44.jpg

This car has a sticker from a place that satisfies both of my main interests.

1238.jpg.8365764f240f74a0665e06f1f3f3be67.jpg

The log flume.

1241.jpg.6ec070f06ab320d750af159855434617.jpg

Skloooshhh!!!

1242.jpg.1663b9a4433e74acf91820c4e9b9b70c.jpg

Random Italian kid blows a kiss at me to be funny. I blow a kiss back in good humor. He looks at me strangely as if I'm a creeper or something. I laugh and walk away.

1244.jpg.a2f0ce504a99416a55afffaf521ddb31.jpg

This thing is called a Panini Pub.

1245.jpg.c07954c0a92d7a148c0d8d8929b701fd.jpg

Based on the pizza I saw, it should just be called an American sandwich.

1246.thumb.jpg.785406bf1d8f1d112b15d9cf142a5849.jpg

This shot made me happy.

1249.jpg.aacc59689a5b2739bdc16edbfaa34736.jpg

This thing looked pretty insane... long lines and a lack of interest kept me from riding.

1251.jpg.da5471de7c8d5dfd193adcf4f4670508.jpg

Mega Drop

My current Facebook profile picture.

1259.jpg.859f3e5ba490e9204eff6dd2925aefe2.jpg

A rather sketchy looking ride I noticed on our way down the path.

1262.jpg.2ff31c1f32120b481b9a23166e532d2f.jpg

Waaaaait.... This isn't a Morgan Hyper!

1263.jpg.a52b3e051955364488142a0c31c32713.jpg

The Italians are certainly digging the Box!

1264.jpg.00ede1bfff42bbb17617dc75f7c8eb2b.jpg

There's a lot of room for expansion over here....

1265.jpg.5e98c831069c209654b20804db7cefb4.jpg

Anyways, back to the coaster.

1266.jpg.44b1da26e07063e6ea9be8f8d38ded2b.jpg

It's not very big or intimidating

1267.jpg.dded2dc8a60e1ee7519fee89967c8f3d.jpg

but then you remember that this is a small park and it does its job pretty well.

1276.jpg.4acf142954b6c2bc25e746c1c363c83c.jpg

Onride.

1278.jpg.0599ae6d2d2a1f4135fa3eaba668d70f.jpg

1280.jpg.2d6f7aa95f9df27fdedb245bf4c27cd9.jpg

It wasn't bad, but these cars were definitely 'Clench & Squish' material.

1281.jpg.1575eff01aa5b59d639a953108d53867.jpg

GIANT ROLLERBLADE OMG!

1284.thumb.jpg.23087c6d9b70e1559fe35f0a476d2ce4.jpg

Happy Sailor. Yet another weird name...

1286.jpg.88c14942d4c926db484d69224247a958.jpg

A couple more coaster shots.

1288.jpg.76bf504814698fe91517f73fb7f4397e.jpg

Airtime, perhaps?

 

I'll post what I have left tomorrow.

^Mars Attack is a Tagada, and yes, I believe it uses centripital force... although Italian kids still stand up and dance. You'll see in the next part. I'm not sure which version of the Inverter that is, but all I know is that I prefer the Zamperla version over it (a rare Zamperla preference over any other manufacturer). I wouldn't quite say they 'look' similar, but they seem to have a similar feel to them: not quite outdated or old school, but not all concrete-jungle Six Flags megacoasterland either.

  • 2 weeks later...

I apologize for the long delay in continuing the report; my computer is very unreliable (one reason I need to switch to Mac ) and I just got it working yesterday.

 

Anyways, the final part of the report.

1290.thumb.jpg.07675e949cbc3461db22c8dcdaeb4067.jpg

Drop tower vertical shots are my favorite kind of shots.

1291.jpg.5db9035e9b8a89d4581dec20b61b4e79.jpg

Perhaps I'll try it next time?

1293.thumb.jpg.a898938fdfc78c6a71018d5d8c9e752a.jpg

BAWWWW!! TEAR DOWN THE TOWER!!!

1294.jpg.3b3de6ed072cd0cef01f9a2fe3155957.jpg

What could be in there?

1297.thumb.jpg.80d8ddf5e7e94c3e4f9a50f1a3c05aa9.jpg

They were playing The Time by the Black Eyed Peas through the speakers! Who would've guessed that Italians love American music?

1299.jpg.009d29456234976dffd424a663d7415f.jpg

Dueling flumes!

Uscita - Exit

 

There, you've learned a little Italian today!

1302.jpg.22a36ddae2f8a885e21476e103aa861f.jpg

Laying on your back will only make you MORE wet!

1303.jpg.965db5a216a072ce2fcd381fa8282857.jpg

This flume has a camera, too!

1305.jpg.096dddebdf2c33169ea6c54d3b2c56de.jpg

The line for the bumper cars isn't too long, but I decide against riding.

1307.jpg.c664126516a75ee064d617ba099c4138.jpg

Wassup, dawg?

1308.jpg.839d8e5f2efd5317f68a6ead4f481495.jpg

Crazy Mouse

1310.thumb.jpg.b777a14a63e11e4f91763d38a52566f6.jpg

UPSIDE DOWN!!

1311.jpg.8d2b4b24c9ecaf393d0b496d631ac381.jpg

It's still 3.14 Rodant to me!

1314.jpg.3069f157b77d1c88b891d03ea37598ae.jpg

Ladies and gentlemen, it's time for the main event.

1315.jpg.8b02ae039bd5c9041e770e11d8753dc1.jpg

No, not this again.

1319.jpg.9a3b67ebb435af773e4b252dfbe41e32.jpg

Not this either.

1321.jpg.72ba52353a8a382ab2420cf96ce2d44b.jpg

Yes, it's this! Ding ding ding!

1325.jpg.7fa64c5e0314b40cb8cc5077d62ab8d2.jpg

This has to be one of the most insane rides I've ever ridden! Loud music, no restraints, very hard bouncing, and a rowdy crowd; I've never ridden anything like it before! Painful for guys, but I still recommend it fully!

1327.jpg.32c1be528102814daec2c172e3da7f8f.jpg

The ATVs were being driven.

1328.jpg.0a23404107f6a951e96e7830de31709f.jpg

This place lights up at night!

1329.jpg.06fcdb2b388da0c4c6aeb33524749e2b.jpg

They have a random park worker begin singing along with the kids. A nice way to get spirits up!

1330.jpg.ff72f415b3dcc22fec074130a5be8eca.jpg

*Grows 2 feet shorter so he's short enough to ride*

1332.jpg.39c7c9a5b8f8c8259298e7c8c98cc598.jpg

Winnie the Pooh behind the scenes!

1333.jpg.8784e7c36e768d92badd022046df99f3.jpg

Where's the Stratosphere?!?

1334.jpg.909e7de9be8e8f74918dd020a31b4e40.jpg

The wheel lights up nicely at night.

1335.jpg.c6d50d9b3e9d1b5919583ae9fc36cf0f.jpg

Help! Get me out of here! It's nomming on my hand!

1336.thumb.jpg.8a8138e3b87429971b2fc7fb5fd25f21.jpg

LOL! Things keep getting weirder and weirder!

1337.jpg.60d2127a7a3cacc5cc31fc2e91f52a2f.jpg

Various toys.

1338.jpg.1136e635e504d6d05f850e69adb1134a.jpg

Final photo of the wheel. My camera ran out of battery right after this!

 

Thanks for reading! =)
