Mirabilandia Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Movieland and the whole of Canevaworld are actually worth visiting! Don't let negativity put you off, it's a little unsung gem of a resort, a bit "homemade" in places but they gave birth to some pretty sensational rides, Magma and Kitt on the first place without mentioning the mad crazy slides at the waterpark... You'll love it!

I am planning to visit Mirabilandia in the first week of September, combined with Gardaland. Does anybody know how crowds usually are in September for this park? Also, do you think one day will be enough to cover most of the rides, including rerides on Katun and iSpeed? I am planning to stay two days in Gardaland, and one in Mirabilandia.

^Thanks for the reply.

That's interesting, since I thought Gardaland was the two day park. May I ask why you would spend two days at Mirabilandia and only one at Gardaland?

Personally I like the rides at Gardaland but after one or two times I ride tham I have enough. The only exception could be Raptor but with no single rider is difficoult to get many rides now. At Mirabilandia there is probably less to do overall (if you are not into the waterpark) but you could easily spend one day just riding iSpeed and Katun!

We have the same judgement about the 2 parks. Gardaland was for us an 'average' park, 1 day is more than enough. Mirabilandia on the other hand has Katun, Ispeed and Divertical..........nuff said!

Thanks for the advice, I really appreciate it. I will consider staying a day longer in Mirabilandia (especially since the second day is free!). But normally, every major ride and all the coasters + re-rides can be done in one day, right?

Yes, it can easily be done in 1 day. Of course it depends on how crowded it is. We visited the park on a busy day a couple of years ago and we rode all 3 the big rides multiple times on 1 day, despite the horrible operations in the park. Didn't care about the other rides/ attractions though.....Katun, Ispeed and Divertical was all we cared about[emoji12]

^That's some interesting speculation right there. I do hope it's gonna be something significant, since Divertical didn't really make that big a splash for the park. Pun intended.

 

By the way, they're having a huge 2018 water park expansion!

 

They've announced 6 new slides, a new wave pool, VIP areas, and much more!

 

No details about what the slides are going to be, but still a very welcome addition. The waterpark hasn't gotten anything new since it opened in 2003!

New area including motorbike coaster themed to the Ducati motorcycle brand coming in 2019

I'm willing to bet money that it's going to be a Zamperla. Considering the fact that they've worked together for their last two themed area expansions, Far West Valley and Dinoland, I'm fairly sure they'll do that again.

Parques Reunidos has sent us a press release announcing the development of Ducati World at Mirabilandia!

Parques Reunidos, one of the world's leading leisure park operators, and Ducati, one of the most iconic motorcycle manufacturers in the world, have signed an agreement to develop Ducati World at Mirabilandia. Mirabilandia, located in the Emilia-Romagna region – where Ducati brand was born—is the second largest theme park in Italy as well as the second most visited park in Parques Reunidos’ portfolio.

 

Mirabilandia’s visitors will be able to enjoy this exclusive and innovative Ducati experience, and will reach new adrenaline levels through their excitement for Ducati motorcycles. This thrilling project will occupy an area of approximately 35,000 m2, and is expected to open to the public in 2019.

 

Ducati World will transform Mirabilandia with the power of the first area themed after a motorcycle brand. It will attract motorcycle fans both from Italy, a country famous for its automotive culture, and from abroad, thanks to a variety of attractions that will engage the public with a real motorcycling experience. The park will incorporate the latest technologies; among the projected attractions there will be a new generation roller coaster that will replicate the experience of riding on a motorcycle. There will also be simulators, virtual reality, and children’s attractions. The agreement with Ducati also envisions a showroom where visitors will find the most iconic Ducati models. Similarly, visitors will be able to learn about motorcycling history and about the socio-cultural context in which the Italian brand has grown through the 90 years it has been operating.

 

To top it all, the park will also include a Ducati shop, where visitors will have the opportunity to buy all sorts of official Ducati and Ducati Scrambler merchandise; and themed restaurants.

 

Mirabilandia is located on the Adriatic Riviera, near Ravenna, and at the heart of one of the most prosperous and most touristic regions in Italy. The park offers a wide variety of shows and attractions, including the Caribbean-themed water park, Mirabeach, and a number of theme areas such as Route 66, Bimbopoli, Dinoland, Far West Valley, and AdventureLand. With an ample offer, cared-for facilities, and location in a natural environment, Mirabilandia has become the entertainment complex of reference in Italy.

 

For Fernando Eiroa, CEO of Parques Reunidos, “This partnership and investment will transform Mirabilandia, empowering the park to attract visitors from all over the world. Ducati World continues the Italian strong tradition for sports and automotive and provides an engaging and innovative experience for motorcycling fans. Ducati is a global brand with a great reputation, as well as a strong local presence.”

 

“Ducati World will give visitors a chance to live an exciting journey inside the Ducati brand” stated Alessandro Cicognani, Ducati Licensing and Corporate Partnership Director. “Thanks to this agreement, together with Parques Reunidos we’re developing the first motorcycle themed area in an Italian amusement park. Mirabilandia’s location, at the heart of the Motor Valley, adds further value to this project dedicated to fun”.

Tbh even the zamperla motocoaster feel more like an actual motorcycle than the spike coaster, did the one at skyline and it's... very ehhhh

 

I know rider's reactions to Sky Dragster weren't great, however, from the beginning stages it sounded like this type of coaster could be easily modified for each installation, so I'm hopeful that themeing can help delivery the proper ride experience.

Sky Dragster didn't wow me, but it was a decently little ride. Maybe adding a racing component will make the ride stand out a bit more.

 

My worry would be capacity. Maybe it was just Skyline, but they didn't send the next train out until the previous one returned to the station. Each run took 30-40 seconds and each bike seats 1-2 riders. Assuming each bike has 2 riders and each dispatch occurs every 30 seconds, that's a max of 240 riders per track per hour. But I'm guessing a lot of people will want to ride alone to control their own speed. How busy does Mirabilandia get?
