Photo TR: Lake Garda mini Trip


Recommended Posts

The last few days I've been in Italy. I was visiting 3 Parks: 2 Theme Parks and a Water Park.

We started by getting up at 6 o'clock in the morning. We departed at 7am. After a 3 hour drive we arrived at Acquaworld in Milano. We had some fun, but left 4 hours later because we've seen everything. Sadly I didn't made any photos of it.

 

At 2:30pm we drove to Gardaland (1h 15min). We've booked an season pass, because that was the cheapest option for us. So we first went to the ticket booth and got our passes. After that it was about 4:15pm and we had some time to visit Gardaland in the first day.

Review: Awesome Dive coaster! Strong G's in the first valley (gray-out danger!), floater Airtime on the hill and a bit of Hangtime in the roll. It was soo cool, I strictly went on it again! Q-Time: 5-10min!

 

More Photos will come tomorrow...

Station with the train. As you can see on the image, it is one of the Vekomas with the more comfortable vest restraints!

^in my opinion, both are a lot underrated! The Vekoma was running very well. It was rattling, but didn't hurted! We rode it about 5 times during our visit! And Sequoia Adventure is also fun! The upside-down parts weren't that bad at all, it was a fun ride, so we rode it twice.

Great photos! Didn't know Magic Mountain is all green now! Is the end of Oblivion really as slow as the POV had shown?

They repainted Magic Mountain this winter I think.

Oblivion is quiet fast in the first parts. On the Hill you get nice floater Airtime and on the end it is a bit slow, but because of that you get some nice Hangtime in the roll!

NO THIS IS NOT TRUE! There is no fun to be had on those two coasters

So why is Sequoia Adventure bad? I've always found S&S's restraints to be quite comfortable.

 

Nice to hear the new Vekoma trains help the ride as they seemed to work wonders on Python as well. If they put them on Goudurix maybe it wouldn't be as bad anymore.

^Gouderix will always be pure Horror!

 

Great TR, so far.Gardaland is for me the best overall park in Italy, visited all big parks last year. And Garda really stands out for me. Mirabilandia has 2 really great coasters but the rest of the park is kind of meh...

 

Now show us some Movieland!

^that's true, but where should the car be when the letters drop?!?

 

So and here is day 4 of my little Italy trip: Movieland Park

Even if the Italians had no school on may 1st, the park was really empty, probably because of the bad weather!

U571, I didn't went on it, because we were quiet freezed because we were wet and it was windy and a bit cold!

We first tried Magma 2.1, a really wet studio tour

Here the truck gets filled up with toxic liquid to splash you!

Water!

Brontojet

It was a intense ride, but made fun

image.thumb.jpg.6577e378b6ff8dfd3fbdc8aa7dcfc322.jpg

It gave me a bit of head banging in the Cobra roll, but the rest was alright! It is wayy better than a Vekoma SLC!!!

I spy a Log Flume, but we didn't rode it!

Great trip report so far. I personally found Gardaland nothing special and would be in no rush to go back. I do agree with sleep time on Raptor though because the 2 B&M Wing Riders I've been on (Swarm and Raptor) have both been really boring.
