Photo TR: Rainbow Magicland, Ride-Videos & the Santa CLAW!

Recommended Posts

The Offseason starts, but time is still more less than enough to take a break and sort my pictures and videos. But I´m ready with this Trip:

 

 

Rainbow Magicland in Valmontone near Rome (Italy)

ParkMap.jpg.971445fcbacdc779926e660211d3acb3.jpg

At first I did want to make this Trip in May, but after I heard that "Shock - The Steam Machine" wasn´t opened, I changed my plans and did this short Trip after the big TPR-Japan-Trip, at the end of July. Besides I was looking forward to visit one of my favorite towns in Europe; ROME!

 

While my hotel was located in the center of Rome, I had to take the Train from Termini to Valmontone. I needed around 40 Minutes to get to the Valmontone Station. At this station there was a Shuttle bus where you bought a bus ticket including the entrance Tickets. It didn´t seem really serious to me, but there were no other option from the station and it looked like a desert. I wasn´t the only person who wanted to the park and all those italien families who were there let me trust, I´m doing the right things Otherwise I would get lost in italy, but I can think of more worse things Turns out I made the correct decision and get a really great day at this beautiful park.

 

My expectation didn´t get disappointed, because I didn´t really think that Mauer & Söhne Launch Coaster will be that thrill ride and what should I tell you, it wasn´t In my opinion it´s a really beautiful and a funny family coaster in the upper class, with a great look, launch and some nice elements, but you won´t get scared.

 

BUT the first Hill is amazing! You can´t compare the feeling to Intamis thrilling airtime hills, but you think it´s endless in this nice parable.

 

I hope you´ll enjoy the Trip Report!

Believix, the WINX Darkride...

042.jpg.f40536eb8168329cdef533ef7b1387ee.jpg

...it´s like the discount version of "Droomvlucht" at Efteling...

045.jpg.20ca849afd2ef281c3c0c8ee33391fec.jpg

... these seems to be the WINX...

047.jpg.234511ecc86215de7105d150e1e6e1f6.jpg

...The queue was in a shady place...

049.jpg.dbd2d97ad4fd5f7fb8f896b33af36356.jpg

...you really need that, because it had the longest queue line of the park at this day and was often broken down.

051.jpg.dcb66a199af15dfef29801af39f33821.jpg

These are the cars.

Nice photo's Holger. To bad you could not do Huntik, it is easily the best ride in the park. Cross between spiderman and shooting darkride. Really cool. I agree on Shock, it is fun but not thrilling. A smaller X-car packs more punch, like Formula X. But the theming in the park is pretty good. And the park will get better with more plant growth. I think for a new park it has a good formula, lots of family rides, good theming, lots of kids stuff. It will get them a stronger base of visitors then say a pure thrill park. The Houdini ride is a underground madhouse.

 

Great report

^^Thank you Robin!

 

^Chadster,

  • I think I compared it too much with Yucatan, where you don´t have one dry part on your body! But otherwise, compared to some other really wet rapid rides, it´s more a nice and normal one. The amount of water, which you easily want in a summer in italy and which is no problem to dry after you get out of the attraction.

 

^^^Vuurvogel,

  • thanks for you compliment. It´s nice to hear what you think about the park. I did read your reports of italy and Japan; they were great and funny, so I want to give the compliment back to you.
     
    I didn´t know that Houdini is a Mad House, interesting, I thought it´s something like the "Zauberhaus" at Toverland. I was sad, that they didn´t open Huntik and when I hear it is the best attraction I´m even more sad. They wanted to open it at that day and everytime I come to the entrance the staff said it would open later that day, but finally it didn´t. At the side of the building I often saw fireworkers, so I guess they made emergency tests that day and didn´t get ready soon enough.
     
    I still think it´s funny we did the same Trips in our private vacation time. Sadly not at the same time.

These pics and videos ALMOST make me want to go back to Italy. I was talking with another friend who mentioned that this park has a lot of operations problems, so I guess it's not surprising that several of the rides were down when you were there. Has anyone reading this thread been to the park on a day where all the attractions were open? I really dig the theming of the park, though! Do they have a fastpass/lo-q kind of service?

I've seen a couple of reports of this place since it opened and it continues to impress me. The park looks great! The entrance reminds me a lot of Port of Entry at Islands of Adventure.

 

Even though the park s incredibly well themed it is a little odd that the station for the coaster is so bland, just a platform with almost no themeing at all?

But great pictures, and that looks like a great new park!

Yeah it really does, with the amazing themeing that everything else in the park has, the coaster only has a facade on a building, and there is that random pathway from the exit platform to the gift shop, it is all very odd. Even the start of the coaster is kinda strange, seems like a pointless little drop out of the station into the little turn around. Very weird, but at least the coaster looks cool!
