Sorry to hear you had an awful time at Gardaland, it looks like it's gone very much downhill since I went last year.
I've been saying all along how rubbish the Screamin' Squirrel looks, and I can't say I'm surprised by your comments.
I hope you got to ride Fuga D'Atlantide, because the park really put a lot into that ride, and it really impressed me with the airtime it gave at the back. The Intamin drop tower was also really good, especially as it takes your photo while you are dropping.
I can't believe I missed out on going to Movie Studios Park! That place looks awesome! Did you get to visit the water park with the ejector slides?
