Mammut was planned before Merlin bought the park
Lovely to see pre-schoolers contribute to the rethemeing.
Honestly I think Merlin's current trend of rehashing old rides and marketing them as new is a disgrace.
That is how the Wild Mouse at BPB got its first drop...it originally started at the zig zags...so it isn't always bad!
Bit of a difference between building a whole new section of track that adds 25% to the length of the ride, and a repaint and rename though.
I stand corrected, I thought they had added a bit.
Gardaland features on Coach Trip on E4 tonight.
According to Screamscape, Gardaland could be looking into a Splash Landings-inspired waterpark for 2020:
Very interesting; we'll have to see how things develop!
P.S. Here's the Screamscape link: http://www.screamscape.com/html/gardaland.htm
Something Something good idea something something copied.
Potentially, a water park could happen but to me, it seems more likely there's going to be a fantasy kingdom expansion. On Twitter, the park replied to a tweet saying a new attraction would be coming. The park have made a 50m by 100m area in fantasy kingdom by moving 4 rides to the medieval area and 2 rides bring temporarily closed for the 2019 season. For reference this is a similar area in size to Mammut.
To be fair, having a water park by one of Italy's biggest tourist attractions (the lake) isn't a bad idea...
There is already a water park about 200 metres away...
Local campsites, B&B’s and hotels hasn’t stopped Merlin from building an infinite amount of accommodation at Alton Towers.
I thought that Waterpark was Gardalands anyway?
Garda's at least might have some semblance of safety (in fact the whole of Movieland Studios is made of death... Fantastic park though)
Hi just a quick question if any one could help but if I wanted to visit Gardaland and movie park with my wife and two kids what would be the best way to travel and more importantly where would be a good affordable place to stay . Any help would be much appreciated thanks in advance
Fly into Verona airport (very cheap with Ryanair), then it's a short train journey. Look on booking.com or Air BnB and there's plenty of reasonably priced accomodation around the lake.
I am planning a trip to Gardaland whilst I am on holiday this year to Lake Garda in around 4 weeks time. I've not been before and was just wondering if anyone had any knowledge you can share about the park before I visit.
Are queuelines typically very long? Is a fast pass worth it?
Which rides typically get the longest queues?
Are there any rides to go to first / wait for in order to avoid queues?
Do you have any other general advice about visiting the park for the first time?
So the rumoured waterpark has been confirmed....and it’s Lego themed.
Doesn't Gardaland already have a waterpark?
