One of Europe's top 10 theme parks, Gardaland is located close to the popular resorts that line Lake Garda. While it includes major roller coasters Blue Tornado and Raptor in its line-up, the park places a greater emphasis on theming that many of its European rivals. This can be seen on attractions such as the interactive, Egyptian-themed dark ride Ramses: Il Risveglio, as well the stunning water coaster Fuga da Atlantide.

Park History

Gardaland opened to the public in July 1975, with a gradual period of expansion taking place over the proceeding decades. Magic Mountain, the park's first major roller coaster, debuted in 1985. 1998 saw the introduction of the Space Vertigo drop tower, the Flying Island observation tower, the Blue Tornado roller coaster and the Jungle Rapids water ride. The park was acquired by Merlin Entertainments Group, which owns other European theme parks such as Alton Towers and Heide Park, in 2006.
