Mirabilandia Discussion Thread

Postby momo1tx » Wed Dec 14, 2005 6:01 pm

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:

Sounds awesome. Bringing back classics always seemed like a good idea to me. I just hope they get rid of those OTSR's. Add that to the reasons why go to Europe in 2007.

I think they always had them, looking at pictures from Morey's Piers' version from the 80's it had them also.

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:

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. :D

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.

It's nice to see in the 'days' of Schwarzkopf coasters being closed or torn down, that one is being reopened.

This now means I''ll have to go back to Mirabilandia for this coaster & more rides on Katun :wink:

This is certainly unique! Great for Miriblanda. My only question is, does it launch you into the loop, or are you pulled through it?
