an Italian version of the happiest place on earth.
There are few things I will get up at 6 a.m. for. Mirabilandia is one of them.
Mirabilandia is Italy’s largest amusement park located in Ravenna, just north of Martinsicuro. I couldn’t wait to see what it was all about!
Before I get into details, I want to give a huge grazie to Mirabilandia and the generous staff for sponsoring my day of fun here. My favorite perk was the FlashPass, which allowed me to skip all of the long lines. Mirabilandia made my experience unforgettable by ensuring my ability to see what every ride and attraction offered, sometimes more than once!
Here is a look into my magical day at Mirabilandia.
I traveled along with Rachel, her cousin and a couple of his buddies for a day full of rides, fun and laughter. The drive was along the coastline with a perfect view of the sunrise – I knew this was a sign it would be a beautiful day.
The scenic car ride full of Italian guys singing American songs was fun, but I was overjoyed when I saw this entrance sign!
I got hooked up with FlashPasses and was ready to conquer the first coaster. The giddy amusement park feeling brought me back to middle school, hence the pose.
Past the entrance and en route to iSpeed I went. Mirabilandia is known for iSpeed, as it goes almost 75 mph at the start and plummets to the ground from 180 ft. in the air.
I rode iSpeed three times in my day at Mirabilandia. The last time, Rae made me ride the whole time with no hands.
Another favorite of mine was the Oil Towers. There are two different towers – one takes you to the top and drops you for a free fall to the bottom and the other launches you from the bottom straight to the top. Both give you an amazing view of the park and butterflies in your stomach.
This ride is called Reset! It takes you through the remains of a post-apocalyptic New York City. Each person gets a laser gun and you compete for the highest score. I won every time.
I think it’s because Rae continued to point her laser gun at me…
We all gathered for lunch where the line at McDonald’s was longer than some of the lines for the rides!
I was tired from the morning of running around like little kids, but excited for what the afternoon would bring.
Rather than rushing to another roller coaster with a full stomach, I decided to join the little ones on the carousel. I might have been the oldest one there, but I fit in just fine.
The walk through all of the kiddie rides was precious, so I had to stop and take pictures. Anyone looking for a fun spot for the little ones, I found it at Mirabilandia.
After some more rides here and there, I made my way to another one of my favorites, Katun. I’m not the only one that loves this one, it’s actually the number one inverted coaster in Europe! This is a once in a lifetime ride so I decided ride it… four times.
All four rides on the Katun were so much fun, but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t completely exhausted after the day full of loops and screams.
After a fun-filled day, I hit the road and headed back for Martinsicuro. It is safe to say that I will never forget my magical day with Mirabilandia.
I would without a doubt recommend Mirabilandia to anyone on looking for an exciting day near the Adriatic Sea. From people in their twenties to families with small children, Mirabilandia has an adventure for everybody.
