Photo TR: Cinecitta World opening weekend

Postby Hhappy » Mon Jul 28, 2014 2:04 pm

So this weekend I got the chance to take a quick trip to Rome and visit Cinecitta World.

This park opened July 24th this year (the Thursday before my visit)
I was there on sunday.

Had an awesome visit and a great tour around the park.

I really liked the park for what it is. It has the different movie set area's which look good. It has 2 coasters (1o inversion and indoor), a mack water ride (which is always fun during the Italian summer) a drop tower and some other small stuff.
The food options are good (fresh made) and there's always something to see when walking around.
A small cowboy show in the spaghetti western area, or some singing in the roman restaurant during lunch time.

The evening before my visit I drove by the park and it looked stunning with all the lights they have set up for the evening opening hours. Unfortunately I did not have the time to check out the park after sunset. Hopefully next time.

The staff was giving their best and interested in learning new things. It felt like they were enjoying working at the park and felt connected to the park and making it an awesome place to visit.

The park also has a pretty good show called Enigma. It's visually pretty good and entertaining. For the people that are interested in a deeper meaning behind the things you see.. it's there :)

So yeah, great visit.

The video's will follow soon ;)

Here is the video of Altair:

Great pictures! I wasn't aware of how substantial the indoor Intamin was, it looks interesting (a thirteen-style drop track?). Thanks for going out there!

The park looks awesome, but the main street do look like it could use one or two rows of trees.

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

well the main street is back to the 20's style.. not sure if those streets had many trees back in the day.
regarding the other areas, they are working at/looking at more shade/covering.
it's a brand new park with brand new trees and green stuff, so it's going to take a little while before these grow in (and get bigger)

^Yeah, I'm curious about that too (especially the 10 looper).
Great pictures, as usual.
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?
The G force is strong with this one.
