From Freiburg to Gardaland isn´t such a long way. Just 5-6 hours drive. It´s totaly worth it
The park was very well themed. I believe a magic show was housed in this castle.
Kind of... It´s a comedy & magic show for the kids.
Since it is in italien language i didn´t understand anything at all, but the combination beetwen slapstick and smaller magic tricks was done very well and i did find it amusing. To be honest, the show was much more entertaining than the real magic-show in Gardaland-Theatre...
Continuing with my Europe tour, on our second day in Italy we visited Miabilanda. The day started out great with ERT on Katun, the park's awesome inverted roller coaster. After about a dozen rides on Katun our group then explored the park's other signature attractions including one of my favorite coasters of the entire trip, iSpeed, a pretty intense launching coaster. Along with the park's 2 main coasters, a pretty good dark ride named Ghostville complete with unexpected live actors gave us a good scare. The shooting dark ride "Reset", themed to a post apocalyptic New York City, was interesting. But the theming was pretty good. I think I should have riden it one more time, but not pay attention to the shooting aspect, just take in the theme of the ride itself. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with how great this park actually was. Onto the photos!
On our way to Mirabilandia, we drove through more gorgeous European countryside.
Our second park of the trip, Mirabilandia.
Like all the parks on our tour, Mirabilandia was highly themed.
Inside the entrance of the park.
This area kind of reminded me of IOA.
ERT on Katun was fantastic!
I think I must have gotten about 10 rides on Katun!
Katun is a great invert.
Once again, the park was pretty.
Even the kiddie coaster was themed pretty good.
One of my favorite coasters of the trip, iSpeed.
What a great ride!
iSpeed really lives up to it's name.
Ghostville is a haunted house ride complete with a few live actors that scared the crap out of us!
Some of the group got a little wet on the splash battle ride.
Main difference between Italy and the U.S. At parks in the U.S. the basketball midway games are always popular. Not so much in Italy. As you can see the soccer simulator game was the crowd pleaser. I wonder if it has something to do with a little game called the World Cup? ;-)
Monosaurous was a pretty well done themed dino ride.
You even ride in cool dino-egg cars!
This should be interesting, visiting New York via Italy.
The entrance area to Reset, the park's shooting dark ride.
The park probably had a lot of fun theming this area.
Our awesome group survived post- apocalyptic New York! Next up Movieland Studios and a ride through the Alps - stay tuned!
I am glad other people enjoyed iSpeed besides me, I thought it was fantastic! I totally forgot about the ghostville dark ride! I think every person got spooked at someone actually jumping out at you, loved it. Anyways, great report and I look forward to the rest of it!
^Thanks! Our last day in Italy consisted of a visit to Movieland Studios theme park. As people had warned us, Movieland Studios was like Universal Studios without any type of rules. I don't think movie licensing was a real issue to the park. They seemed to have attractions based on whatever movie they wanted. Even though the park was kind of small and the operations on a few of the attractions were kind of bad, it is a cool little park. Next to the Studios, was home to Aqua Studios water park, which we didn't have time to check out. From the people that did do the water park, they said it was a lot of fun. I think Movieland Studios has a lot of potential. Onto the photos!
On our way to Movieland Studios.
More of the Italian countryside.
Movieland Studios entrance, looks kind of familiar.
The park had some nice movie theming.
These type of rides are fun except this particular one scared the crap out of me since my shoulder restraint moved about 2 inches during the ride. I guess it was a true thrill ride!
The Bedrock area of the park.
Even though the flume was compact, it was a lot of fun!
An interesting ride.
Christine and I enjoyed, Shag: The Ride!
As did Alfredo and Drew.
The Magma attraction had fire so it was awesome!
And lots of water too!
We checked out the park's Terminator 2: 5D End Game attraction.
Too bad it wasn't as awesome as we had hoped it would be. But at least 3D glasses were involved!
Time to head out and leave beautiful Italy!
The countryside was gorgeous.
Next stop, a dinner stop in the Alps! Switzerland is next, stay tuned!
After leaving Italy we took a long, but beautiful drive through the Swiss Alps to get to our next stop in Germany. We enjoyed a long dinner rest stop in Switzerland. All I can say is that the Alps are amazing.
During the bus ride, Fran won his very own Prezzemolo!
At the Swiss border.
Yeah, new another new country credit!
I felt like I was looking at a model railroad train set.
We stopped for a long nice dinner.
Enjoying dinner with Renee in the Swiss Alps!
The air was so crisp and clean up here.
With the lovely Melissa and Christine enjoying the beautiful Alps!
Back on the road.
Another amazing view!
That's it for now. Next stop: Europa Park! Stay tuned!
