Photo TR | Cinécitta World

Postby Werner » Thu Jul 24, 2014 12:05 pm

Hello fellow TPR members and readers,

Today i had the change to be one of the first to visit the worlds newest themepark! Cinécitta World nearby Rome, Italy.

I didn't really follow all the information and constuction for this project. The only thing i did know for a long time that they had an Intamin 10-looper, just a couple of days ago i found out they had an Intamin drop-coaster as well. :D And the 'giant' Elephant Freefall tower. But everything else was a surprise for me. =)

Now on to the photo's:

Once more for the fans...


Today was the first day of operations for the park, not everything was ready yet. Shops where not filled and not everything worked like it should have. There will always be some starting problems, nothing mayor and everything was fixed really fast! Big plus for the park!

Also most employees spoke very good English and the ones that didn't still tried to do their best. And that's a big plus in Italy, where you still find a lot of people that just refuse to speak English.

The big plus today was Darkmare, since i didn't know much about it. It really surprised me, it's a very good family coaster with a fun vertical drop. Theming is also great, one of the better indoor coasters in Europe!

That's it for now, hope you enjoyed this report and don't forget to visit the park next time your in Rome!

^Was the 10 looper bouncy? That's a shame. I wonder what's with these rides as smoothness doesn't seem to be their strong point.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?

^ well bouncy isn't necessarily a bad point.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Here's what an experienced enthusiast said about the one in China:
The one that opened in China recently is excellent. Yes, it's newer than Colossus, but the lap bars make a massive difference.

I'd say it's one of the best "normal" loopers I've done. I've always liked Colossus' layout though. If you're not a fan it's unlikely to sway you completely.

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

^Oh ok, that's nice. The only thing that doesn't make me want to ride these that badly is just because of how repetitive they are. Almost as if they still had 5 inversions to go, got bored and threw in 5 heartline rolls. I know the point of colossus was precisely to break the record but they could have dedicated themselves a bit more. While The Smiler is also a bit cheating (due to the fact that it's basically two coasters put together) I do find it a bit more interesting. Still, if I really was being strict, I would say Dragon khan is "the proper coaster with the most inversions". That being said, I haven't tried the first two.

There actually very nice rides, and there's not really a feeling of repetivness. The 4 rolls in a row is awesome with some glorious hang time, and the last one whips you around real quick. Give it a try!
