Photo TR: Cinecitta World opening weekend

Recommended Posts

So this weekend I got the chance to take a quick trip to Rome and visit Cinecitta World.

 

This park opened July 24th this year (the Thursday before my visit)

I was there on sunday.

 

Had an awesome visit and a great tour around the park.

 

I really liked the park for what it is. It has the different movie set area's which look good. It has 2 coasters (1o inversion and indoor), a mack water ride (which is always fun during the Italian summer) a drop tower and some other small stuff.

The food options are good (fresh made) and there's always something to see when walking around.

A small cowboy show in the spaghetti western area, or some singing in the roman restaurant during lunch time.

 

The evening before my visit I drove by the park and it looked stunning with all the lights they have set up for the evening opening hours. Unfortunately I did not have the time to check out the park after sunset. Hopefully next time.

 

The staff was giving their best and interested in learning new things. It felt like they were enjoying working at the park and felt connected to the park and making it an awesome place to visit.

 

The park also has a pretty good show called Enigma. It's visually pretty good and entertaining. For the people that are interested in a deeper meaning behind the things you see.. it's there

 

So yeah, great visit.

 

The video's will follow soon

 

Here is the video of Altair:

 

But first, pictures

this one has plenty of screens to keep you entertained and maybe even slightly confused during the ride

DSC_8433.thumb.JPG.5da7d39d168fa6cd8002cb7ff1f61f98.JPG

it always surprises me how much track can be fitted in a certain area

Great Photos! Interesting park, wonder if there are any dark rides?

 

it has an indoor coaster..

 

The park looks awesome, but the main street do look like it could use one or two rows of trees.

 

well the main street is back to the 20's style.. not sure if those streets had many trees back in the day.

regarding the other areas, they are working at/looking at more shade/covering.

it's a brand new park with brand new trees and green stuff, so it's going to take a little while before these grow in (and get bigger)

Nice report, some great pictures there!

 

What did you think about the coasters? Enjoyed them both?

 

^Yeah, I'm curious about that too (especially the 10 looper).

Great pictures, as usual.

 

Personal opinion:

the 10 looper was not bad at all, those last few spins were pretty disorientating. Not sure if it was just the train or something else but the trains probably need a little bit of tuning. If they can fix those last (tuning) details it will be even better and more people will ride it over and over again.

 

the indoor coaster was a lot of fun, the horror style with projections and then being a ride indoors made it a lot of (re-ridable) fun

How did Cinecitta World's 10 looper feel compared with its older brother Colossus?

 

Personal opinion:

my last ride on Colossus was when just brutal (as far as I can remember as it has been a while)

this one has lap bars (BIG plus compared to over the shoulder restraints) and feels more forceful and fun than colossus.

Glad Italy can add another Great park to its list. In a few years, i'm sure it'll be right up there with Gardaland and mirabilandia! It's already looking good. Although, that first picture of the parks name on it is kinda strange how its completely not detailed like the rest of the park...gives a different feel to it

^ I think you could see it (the white building you see first after parking) as the gateway to the world of movies.

behind that is the themed entrance with ticket boots on the sides.

Great report! I love the "feel" of the park from you photos. The "Trojan Elephant" is awesome! And I love how the park made a path right down the line of sight of the four heartline inversions, so that the coaster would end up being very prolific.

sorry but at this time the only way to see that line of sight for the four heartline roles is to be backstage.

The park has plans to change this in the future so that there will be something like a viewing area.
