New 2011: Rainbow Magicland Themepark (near Rome - Italy)

Postby Ledgy » Wed Jul 28, 2010 1:04 am

Hi,

I Have heard some rumors about of this park: Rainbow Magicland in Valmonone near Rome / Italy.

It´s scheduled to open in 2011 and will get two Maurer & Söhne Coasters (1 Spinning / 1 X-Car launched coaster) and 2 more coasters - A family coaster and a mine train. Rcdb.com has listed this park, too. (here)

Here you can find the homepage of the park:
www.rainbowmagicland.it/index.asp
and a english pdf (here)

The ground work has just begun and I found some pictures of the construction area on italian sites.

Maurer & Söhne says the spinning coaster starts construction soon on their site. (here) and mentioned their 2 coasters in their last magazine on site 3 (here)

I guess and hope we have some Italian members, who will add more informations about the progress and so that we all can get more information.

Just want to start the discussion about that park, since I didn´t find anything in the forum until now.

EDIT:
Let´s have a look on the pictures published in the pdf of the park´s homepage:

Hello again!

For everyone using facebook, here is the "Rainbow MagicLand UNOFFICIAL PAGE". The language of the site is italian, but there are many up to date construction photos. Not sure I´m allowed to post them here directly.

The red roller coaster looks very intense actually. It looks like a pimped out RipRide Rockit. Is it manufactured by Maurer Söhne?

This is a quote of the magazine site:

Rainbow Magicland.jpg

Munich, Rome. Starting in 2011, rain or shine, visitors to a new Theme Park in Valmontone
near Rome will be able to enjoy two of Maurer Söhne’s roller coasters. The Munich roller
coaster manufacturer will demonstrate its capabilities with two roller coasters: Outdoors
with a big X-Car launch coaster and indoors with an imaginative spinning coaster.


Launch Coaster Outdoor
    - Type: X-Car launch coaster
    - Capacity: 1,000 pph
    - Track Length: 750 m
    - Height: 35 m
    - Max Speed: 95 km/h
    - Ride Duration: 80 sec
    - Number of Cars: 5
    - Acceleration: LSM at 0.8 g

Spinning Coaster Indoor
    - Type: spinning coaster
    - Capacity: 850 pph
    - Track Length: 430 m
    - Height: 17 m
    - Max. Speed: 58 km/h
    - Ride Duration: 75 sec
    - Number of Cars: 7

In the vicinity of Rome, a completely new amusement park is currently under construction, the Rainbow Park with an investment volume of nearly 200 million.
The two Maurer coasters are part of stage 2; scheduled to open to the public in 2011.


Full speed ahead with rocket power
    “Piano, piano”, Italian for slow or quiet, will be experienced on the launch coaster only at the beginning: After a slow start
    section, the LSM launch accelerates the vehicles to a heady 95 km/h; and then – typical for Maurer coasters – further attractions follow without interruption. A camelback with three seconds of air time leaves passengers breathless; and it takes a cool head to enjoy the view of the lake from a 35-m non-inversion loop right over the sparkling water. A helix and
    finally a heart roll show Italian temperament. At 750 meters, the coaster will be one of the largest of its kind. The five
    individual X-Cars with their maneuverability and a safety system without shoulder bars make this ride experience in the
    sunny south a real pleasure.

Spinning with an outdoor excursion
    The curvy spinning coaster will make sure that indoor passengers have fun through a slight disorientation .The sightseeing
    highlight on the 430-m stretch is a trip on a panorama curve leading out of the hall into the outdoors. However, two lifts
    provide an extra kick on the ride: the first one just after leaving the station; the second shortly before returning to the station. What lies in between is almost Maurer tradition - an extremely narrow and curvaceous layout, which repeatedly
    turns passengers in every direction in the seven spinning cars.

Both layouts are delivered by Maurer Söhne as turnkey systems; i.e. including
transport, and on-time construction.

Actual Newsletter of Mauere & Söhne (July 10):

Maurer Spinning Coaster in Italy to start Operation soon
    Presently a brand new amusement park “The Rainbow Magic Land” is being developed close to Rome with a capital expenditure of almost 200 million Euros. End of 2008 Alfa3 ordered a X-Car Launch Coaster and a Spinning Coaster from Maurer Söhne. The SC3000 is an indoor coaster with a base area of 40 x 60 m.
    The Spinning Coaster will go into operation at the beginning of July 2010 as scheduled and will then be handed over to the customer as “ready for testing”. The SC should start up for the park opening which is scheduled for spring 2011 with seven S-Cars and a capacity of 850 pph.

Spinning Coaster with a trip outdoors
    The twisty Spinning Coaster indoor will make surely the passengers will surely become disoriented. The sightseeing highlight on the 430 m long track is the trip on a panorama curve outside the hall. But two lifts are responsible for the extra kick: the first one is located soon after the station, the second one shortly before returning into the station. What is in between is typical Maurer: an extremely narrow and twisty layout which turns the passengers in the seven cars in all directions again and again.

So.. this might be a stupid question, but why do they show a SLC when they aren't getting one...?

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

Designing purposes. Parks have pictures drawn up and photoshopped together so that prospective investors can get an idea of what to expect if and when the park opens. So the picture may show an SLC, but it's just an idea. They could replace it with an actual B&M invert.

I know WHY they are using another coaster, its just to make a visual impression, I know that much! I actually think that EVERY ONE in this forum know is..
But they could have used one more simular like RRR at USF! Using a B&M would't be better at all, use a Mauer Söhne...
(Chosing a SLC is like me thinking, hmm do I need my thumb?)

Sorry if I sound mean, but... yeah, but...
