Big refurbishment for legendary attraction in Gardaland

060218lobby.jpg

The Italian theme park Gardaland will refurbish one of its most iconic attractions. This winter the mysterious pirates darkride I Corsari will get a thorough renovation. The decors will be equipped with digital projection techniques and other special effects.

That has recently been announced by Gardaland. Guests make a stormy journey at sea while being chased by a ghost ship. "They are witnesses of duels, abandoned villages, decayed ships and underground worlds populated by supernatural beings".

The attraction will be called 'I Corsari: La Vendetta del Fantasma'. A new soundtrack is also provided. Voice actor Pietro Ubaldi, known for the voice of Captain Barbossa in the Italian dubbing of Pirates of the Caribbean, will be providing the voice of the spirit.

Gardaland will reopen on Friday 29th March. This year, the theme park also opens a themed area with attractions around the Peppa Pig children's series. Furthermore, the Time Voyagers attraction is renamed 'San Andreas 4-D Experience', based on the disaster film San Andreas from 2015.

The fact that an actual Pirates of the Carribean voice actor is going to act for a Pirates of the Carribean ripoff is slightly amusing to me. :lol:

Must have had a bad pay-day from Disney.
Glad to see it's not VR, I saw the picture and was like: "oh no another VR ride in a park that already has one." But this is more exiting for me.
I want to return to this park badly but till now I always had to cancel last minute. Maybe 2019.

as expected (given the high maintenance costs and low participation in the park) in recent years. the adventure of the sequoia will be closed indefinitely. for those who attend or know the park well enough, this is news that will not leave you speechless. in addition to having removed 2 attractions for young children
then ; 3 attraction for the peppa pig - sequoia and baby horse and baby canoes
great gardaland

^Aw, man. I've heard many (and maybe only?) bad things about this kind of ride, but by looks alone it's always intrigued me. And the fact that its inversions are called saxophones.

I, for one, won't say bad things about this ride. Was it a great coaster? Maybe not, but it was definitely a cool experience. Seeing the track disappear in front of you was pretty scary, and I didn't find the up-side down parts uncomfortable.

The problem with this coaster was 2
very low frequency from the public
part costase for maintenance
and this led to the closure as early as June of last year

The problem with the coaster was:
High maintenance
Low capacity
Uncomfortable to ride
Not thrilling

Other than that is was great!

It stunk. But now that it is dead, I will say nothing but great things about it because no one else can ride it.
