  • Beautiful place always neat and clean bathrooms are perfect ... However, the saltacoda I find it shameful. parking €5. From 34 to €40.50 of entry depends on how the purchases. 30 I seem to saltacoda. To sto point I make VIP subscription at a price of 85. We let him down then €340 4. All designed and arranged intelligently to take as much money as possible. On one hand I find it normal as it is still a place that employs a lot of people I find the salcoda frustrating for anyone who does not have the ability to bleed out to spend a few hours of fun. Also the employee's response to the shaman "standing in line like all mortals" it seemed at least misplaced. If you know saltacoda I am cursed above all ... we did 5 rounds on raptor 1 5 2 blues on oblivion tornado and jungle in less than 2 hours quick when the "mere mortals" were 1 hour queue for one attraction. I was ashamed to walk right by them. We should learn from euro disney where booked the ticket on a totem pole that you l start maybe in a hour to do tail or at least an acceptable wait. .. or a limited number of visitors. Oh well ... saltacoda aside place that deserves the maximum score.

  • Today I was at gardaland with my husband and my 4-year old daughter, we did 45 minutes of tail on the volaplano and then be told you can't go up because your daughter is 99.5 cm high and therefore no salt. it's a shameful thing so I wonder why bring in children under one meter if not then can get on a carousel so stupid. shame on you ... ...

  • We were on the opening day of the season 2017 after their stay (opening) in gardaland hotel was a few years that I haven't been to gardaland (after several years in tapppa fixed) but it's always nice to go back On my 4 year old has a terrific time even though I see it more for an adult saw gardaland ticket price now risen over the years, we've also had the unexpected electrical black out for about 2 hours of I personally I did refund (they firmanto tickets) for the mix up and for failure to use all the rides I was 1 hour to the claims Office with about 150 screaming people who wanted to refund cash (who did not obviously did) who threatened to call the police etc. Fortunately I was the first in which they asked if I meant to come back than I would have signed tickets that I still and when I come back next time (by 31novembre) with the same tickets of the opening hopefully not make me stories because I filmed (with his consent) the girl/Lady (Manager) that I signed tickets, unexpected blackout aside Park always studied in detail as always compared to years ago in my opinion useless game "muffled" type where you win the plush or gadgets etc. are games pin money because they are dear and you win rarely Avoid the days highlight why you're queued hours and at the end of the day the rides made are very few, even if you skip the queue, dear even that and not always nice anyway back unlimited Gardaland children ...

  • Gardaland has something for all ages. My wife & I visited with our 4 year old on a monday. Whilst it was very busy all day the rides were all accessible and queues were short, 20 minutes was the most we waited. The facilities are all spotless and plenty of places to eat/drink. Overall a great day out. Prices were approximately €30 each. Children under 1 metre are free but will only be able to go on the blue rides on the map ( lots of these anyway). Worth it for the oblivion alone.
  • Fun and affordable for all ages. Gardaland is Italy's answer to Disneyland and it's pretty good value for money. Kids below 1m in height go free! There are many rides and attractions with a number suitable for toddlers accompanied by an adult. The tractor ride around a cartoon farm was particularly amusing for the kids :) Be warned that some of the toilet facilities have the squatting toilets! There were some by the entrance to Fantasy Land. Regular sitting toilets are available in the restaurants. Food was decent and not terribly overpriced there. The burger joint is pirate themed and service is pretty speedy. The biggest issue is that the rides themselves have little to no information about them on the map or on the signs (or at least not in English). I'd recommend you ask the attendants before you go on them. For instance: the giant Magic Tree is actually a spinning ride that flips you upside down. The giant pirate ship ride by the burger joint is actually a "Haunted House" type ride. It's pretty scary and I wouldn't advise you go on it with children. Travelling to Gardaland seems best done via train to Peschiara station. There is a shuttle bus which operates every 30 minutes from there to the park as well. That starts at 9.30AM normally, 30 minutes before the park opens (double check this on the website). It only takes 5-10 minutes for the bus to travel between the places as well. Note that the shuttle bus also takes you from Gardaland back to the train station as well. That leaves every 30 minutes at quarter past and quarter to. Last bus leaves Gardaland 15 minutes before the park closes but I'd highly recommend you leave earlier to avoid the rush. Overall a really fun place! Would recommend to families and thrill seekers.
  • Not too expensive to enter and the season pass is really worth it for multiple visits. Fun for the whole family. Lots of fun rides and activities. Food is affordable and there are many options.
  • Best time to go is June, not very busy, maximum 10 minutes for crowded spots. its a shame that all the park is missing info in english, also in all spots and attractions, no english at all. would definitely go again.
  • Great theme park with something for everyone. Raptor is something special. Bring swimming gear for the kids as there is a big water play zone.
