2-3 hours is a piece of cake for me. I drive down to kings Island and Kennywood from Detroit all the time. And that’s a good 4+ hours.

ispeed looks like xcelerator at Knott’s but with the old school Maverick hard restraints, at least according to all the pictures I could find of it.

And yeah the other is a B&M invert, for sure I have to check this place out, thanks!

It's closer to Maverick than Xcelerator, except the ending kinda sucks. Katun (the invert) is super good. TBH Gardaland is the "better park" but I find it sterile and kinda bleh compared to Mirabilandia and Moveland Park being filled with all the weird.

Seriously, go to Movieland Park. The Knight Rider Jet Boat attraction is one of the greatest things ever.

^No. Movieland is as if Universal was built by some crazy eclectic rich guy who wanted to secretly watch people in extraordinary situations. It is nothing like any other place on earth and you should definitely go.

Probably not because this is Europe and parks more often than not close early (like 6PM closings on Saturdays). Gardaland is a big park with a ton to do. Movieland is far less packed but you'll want to do everything, screen attractions included (not tons of em), because they're just bonkers. What screen things do they have? Terminator and Police Academy? I mean dude they have a Police Academy ride. With italian actor lookalikes to the people in the Police Academy series. This is real and exists in Italy in the same place with a knockoff Medieval Times and a knockoff Hard Rock. And the water park with the death slides that don't kill anyone because they don't put metal ringy dingy ding-a-ling dings w/nets over them but just let them fly like 4 feet in the air!

Yeah, do not try to do both parks in one day.

Three posts about Movieland and no mention of U-571. You all are doing it wrong.
