Attractions
The park's recent addition of two B&M coasters, Raptor and Oblivion bolster an otherwise average coaster lineup. Mammut is a zippy Vekoma mine train themed to wooly mammoths. The best thing that can be said about Magic Mountain is that it is different.

But don't judge the park just on the coasters, as there are some unique and fun flat rides. Flying Island provides great views of the park and nearby Lake Garda. Magic House is a Vekoma Mad House with a unique pre-show. I Corsari is a very entertaining boat ride along the lines of Pirates of the Caribbean. Ramses Il Risveglio is a shooting dark ride with an Egyptian theme.
Food
The park does an extraordinary job offering great food at reasonable prices. You'll find the biggest cluster of food options between Ramses II Risveglio and the Magic Mountain coaster. There are multiple stands selling everything from hot dogs to pizza cones to crepes to gelato and much more. Also close by is Aladino, a bar and quick-service eatery, which serves multiple varieties of amazing paninis.
Operating Season
The park season runs from April to September, with extended hours (usually 9AM - 11PM) from mid-June to mid-September.
Established Seasonal events
The park reopens for OktoberFest (last two weeks of September) Halloween (weekends in October) and Christmas (early-December through early-January) events.

At night the park closes Ramses II Riseglio early to set up for the park's "The Eye of Ramses" in front of this attraction.
