Mirabilandia Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Hey everybody!

 

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Mirabilandia (Italy), this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page..

Looking on rcdb, I noticed something very odd. Next year, Mirabilandia, the place best known for Katun and smiley-face pizzas, is adding a Schwarzkopf Katapult. This seems odd to me, but is good too, because all five Katapults had become defunct, but it appears one of them is being put back in service.

 

For those who don't know the very simple layout of a Katapult, here it is:

Here's the proof of Mirabilandia's:

I have heard that its only being stored at Mirabilandia and that it will head back to travelling fairs next year. I think that sounds more realistic as the ride has been placed in a field outside the park. I would also expect Mirabilandia to get something newer and bigger considering the size of the park.

Yes, that *was* the rumor until this "confirmation" showed up on:

http://www.theparks.it/news.php?id=273

 

There still is a chance though that this (last remaining) Katapult is to be "parked in use" for one or two seasons at Mirabilandia only. (somehow like "SBSO": standing, but still operating)

 

At least it has been refurbished, which is a good sign to see it continue operating.

Notice also that this one will operate/not operate with a full Schwarzy train instead of the individual Schwarzy cars. Too bad I'm too poor to go anywhere outside the midwest to ride coasters, I'd like to ride a Schwarzy really bad.

Right, they are two different rides. Mirabilandia decided to install a new kind of ride but doesn't change the name. So the new ride name is "katapult" as announced some months ago, but the type of ride has been changed.

Less than 1 month after the installation, Energy Rush has been removed due to technical problems and because of the low level of satisfaction of guests.

Katapult (the coaster), who was put in stand-by, will replace the Energy Rush.

The name will no be changed.

 

(Source: parksmania.it News Dept. )

You can find a video about the Energy Rush on the Moser official web site.

 

I agree with the guests, that when you are saying, you will have a new rollercoaster for this year, and then have a crappy flatride.

I hope they will install the Schwarzkopf coaster for this year and not let the guests wait for another year.

That ride really looks like it would give you terrible whiplash! The KMG Afterburner is intense enough. Adding those freely rotating seats looks just too intense.

Wow, what an evil looking ride. I bet if it didn't have those OTSRs though it wouldn't be so evil. Why does every company think every ride needs them, or for the ones that do, why can't they design better ones that don't box your ears in so much!

The Energy Rush looks pretty neat. I've yet to ride a bad Moser flat ride and I've been on quite a few...

 

-Gravity Tower

-Energy Storm

-Flip N Out

-SuperLoop On Top

-G Force (Top Star Tour)

 

All awesome rides... since when have they offered a standup Maverick/Wind Shear?!?! Has anyone actually purchased one of these? Looks like THAT would be a painful ride.
