  • Blue Tornado – is the most famous in Italy. Inspired by Top Gun, is a roller coaster that offers dizzying turns, looping and accelerations sites that will leave you breathless. You have the impression that you are in a fighting plane.
  • Fuga di Atlantide – water slide. It is one of the most famous in Europe. The craft will walk along the ruins of Atlantis’. Poseidon arrives and condemns the sailors to a very long and very wet drop!
  • Valley of the Kings – is a family attraction. In floating crafts, the passengers slowly enter the Valley of the Kings following a team of explorers in search of a treasure. The scenario is simple but directing and special effects are carefully thought: strobe lights, noise and good music. It is an attraction for the whole family even if some scenes might frighten children.
  • Magic Mountain – is a conventional roller coaster which offers two looping sites.
  • Ortobruco Tour – family attraction. A small roller coaster especially for young people who are seeking thrills. Installed on board a yellow and pink smiley caterpillar, you will make a series of dizzying and terrifying turns.
  • Sequoia Adventure – is the first attraction of its kind in the world. Sequoia will ride on a vertical line that turns 180 degrees and you upside down.
  • Space Vertigo – after having been alerted by a ‘bacteriological alarm’, you will use the launch ramp beneath your feet. You will be propelled 4 m high with a speed of 5m per second. At this point the machine falls into the bay: you cannot escape the intergalactic war and you will quickly fall down to earth … in a free fall!

The Sea Life Park is a novelty. This is a large aquarium, a miracle in the world of water, where you can admire a lot of sea creatures taking a stroll through a deep tunnel. The park opens in March till the end of September. It is also open on special occasions such as Halloween, Christmas or New Year.
