About the author

In my profession I have the rare fortune to combine my two greatest passions: travelling and writing. Even as a child, I couldn't get excited about a week of pure beach holidays. At that time I was content to bother my parents with Italian vocabulary and facts from the travel guide while driving south.

Description

Gardaland is Italy's biggest fun park. Located directly at Lake Garda, Italy's biggest lake, it attracts plentiful visitors each year. The park offers numerous attractions for the whole family, ranging from dashing rollercoasters over 4D cinema to white-water rides. All in all Gardaland comprises 30 rides over an area of around 33 hectares.

The attractions can be put into three categories:

  • Adrenaline
  • Fantasy
  • Adventure

Adrenaline

This label describes the rapid rollercoasters that make your adrenaline go high. Among these are for example the Blue Tornado and the Raptor rollercoaster, but also the Space Vertigo, which brings you 40 meters up high and drops down with incredible speed.

Adventure

The adventure-attractions are less swift than adrenaline rollercoasters, but offer a lot of fun and spectacular settings. Underneath the pirateship is the mysterious world of the buccaneers, which you can explore by boat. If you like playing against each other, Ramses' temple offers the perfect opportunity: equipped with laser pistols, you try to shoot the most light points to win. But more than one attraction falls under this category, for instance the 4D cinema or the diverse white-water rides.

Fantasy

Fantasy-attractions are suitable even for the smallest park visitors. Especially the attractions around Prezzemolos tree, where Gardaland's mascot Prezzemolo lives, let childrens' hearts beat higher. Near the tree are various railways, on which families can explore the park, without it getting to wild for the kids. Another highlight suitable for all ages is the Flying Island, a kind of spaceship that goes up high in the air and gives you a wonderful view over Lake Garda.

Gardaland theatre

Gardaland also has its own theatre. Diverse, altering shows take place here, which are frequently elaborated and performed by professional dancers and actors. The theatre is always worth a visit, and is furthermore a nice way to escape the hot italian summer sun for a while.

Eating out in Gardaland

Of course Gardaland doesn't leave you hungry. It offers many kiosks and gastronomy services, including fast food chains, as well as Italian pizzerias, Mexican food and a medievally themed restaurant „Merlins Stube“ („Merlin's parlour“).
