An Inside Look At Rainbow Magicland Theme Park
Welcome people of Coaster Nation! Today we have something very special for all of you. Join us as we take a look around one of Italy’s newest theme parks, Rainbow Magicland. Located just south of Rome, this park offers 35 attractions full of thrills, games, and a journey full of “magic” for the whole family!
Rainbow Magicland opened it’s gates for the summer of 2011. Unfortunately, the park opened with a lot of kinks (mostly signature rides being down) however, by our visit in June of 2012, it seemed those kinks were worked out and we were ready to have a fun day at Italy’s newest theme park!
The entrance plaza has a very Islands of Adventure feel to it. Complete with a lighthouse! Ok, it was a little different than Port of Entry, but it had a very similar feel. Along the sides there are several shops and eateries to choose from. You can even pick up some Nutella!
Going left from the entrance plaza you come to the parks water rides. Le Rapide (not pictured) is the park’s rapids ride. We promise it will get you soaked (but that is a good thing under the hot Italian sun).
Yukatan (seen above) is a standard Chute-the-Chutes type ride with some fun effects inside (we won’t spoil the surprise!). Also check out that awesome facade!
Oh did we mention the A/C is superb!
We can assume the name comes from Alessandro Cagliostro. Alessandro was an Italian adventurer from the late 1700’s. His name appears many times throughout Italian film and books during the 1900’s with all kinds of fascinating stories and fictional tales about his life. In this case, Cagliostro comes in the form of an indoor spinning coaster!
Olandese Volante is our next stop. Dipping around trees and through rock work this fun mine train coaster by Vekoma is perfect for this family park!
You sit on a bench while facing another group and the room will begin to spin around you. Each has a different theme and this one as we are sure you guessed is themed around magic! This is another perfect family ride for this park but be warned it doesn’t open with the park (at least on our visit) it opened up at 2:30pm.
Behind Maison Houdini is the park’s kids area. There you will find a typical Wacky Worm and a Vekoma Roller Skater. Also you will find Believix the unique dark ride themed to the Winx Club using the technology from the Peter Pan rides found at the Disney parks it was a nice surprise for us!
Looking across the lagoon from the Maison Houdini we knew exactly where we were heading next!
The ride it self is a ton of fun with an intense launch, plenty of airtime and some inversions for those who love going upside down. Shock was another surprise from our visit from Rainbow Magicland and ended up being one of our favorite coasters in Italy!
Remember how we mentioned Rainbow Magicland had an Islands of Adventure feel to it? Well check out what is just across the street, that looks like an entrance from a certain park next to IOA… Let us know what you think!
Thank you Rainbow Magicland for a fun visit! You were defiantly a surprise and we hope to see you continue to grow and stay a success!
