You can never have too few pictures of that horrible airport though
Dude, that was the first airport that I have chosen to carry my bags rather than roll them because I was concerned about what may have been growing on those floors...
Well here is update number dos. AKA DAWN OF THE WACKY WORMS
The second day of the trip would bring us to real coaster riding with 4 parks across Rome.
The day started with breakfast than meeting up in the lobby to get into the convoy again and make hast for the beach to try and beat the crowds that would soon descend on the area. We started by taking the scenic route and found out that when in italy you dump your trash along the roads... so we turned it into a game and tried to find everything you would need to build a house. Well we found everything but the kitchen sink
Finally we arrived at the first park of the day and the first "Real" park of the trip Zoomarine
I did some mild research before the trip but still wasn't sure what to expect. The park was very clean and well taken care of and featured a waterpark, wildlife park and an amusement park all combine and was small but felt very spread out. The two coasters are Vertigo (Don't worry this one didn't fall over....yet) a schwarzkopf and Squalotto a wacky worm.
We made our way to Vertigo first but found out it didn't open till later so one of our drivers started to negotiate with the employees as we went back and got our wacky worm credit before being told to head back to vertigo. Robb than talked to the park owner and he ended up opening it exclusively for us to get a ride or two! It was smooth and fun just like any other schwarzkopf.
We than had a little time to explore the park so we all spread out. A group of us made our way to hit a few flat rides and than we braved their Dinosaur walk through. It was really weird and it didn't help none of us know italian to listen to the employee who randomly stops and talks to everyone about what they are seeing. It was dark and had some props and animatronics including one that decided to assault a member of our group while the rest of us we able to duck the large tail coming at us from the darkness however one was not so lucky... but he lived and we made our way to meet with the group to depart. I highly recommend a visit to Zoomarine if you are ever in the area.
Next up was Fantasiland
which was just a block away.. however when we showed up the park was locked up. Robb was able to find an employee and try to bribe them to open the coaster for us. Well after a few minutes and a price of 3 chickens a goat and two women they agreed to open the coaster for us. We drove into the park and were lead to the coaster where they just pulled the tarps off and started loading people. Luckily we all survived.
We than left and made our way back towards Rome for our next park Oasi Park
. Not sure what to say about this place but it just seemed like they tried to fit in any IP they could find and didn't care how it mixed. The park however was very clean and well kept and seemed like the perfect park for kids. Well we rode their Mini Mouse and posse for a group photo before leaving for our last park.Eden Park
was the last park of the day. It was another very small park aimed at children.... however this one had a bar and a casino! We were here for the coaster however... Brucomela which is another wacky worm. Got the credit than left to head back to the hotel it was once again another great day and alot of fun! But now it's time for pics!
