Mirabilandia: the amusement park for young and old on the outskirts of Ravenna
Between Ravenna and Milano Marittima, a stone's throw from the Classe pine forest, lies the small village of Savio/Mirabilandia. The reason to visit? The Mirabilandia amusement park, the Mirabeach water park and the Safari Ravenna zoological park to observe and study lions, tigers, giraffes, zebras, hippos and many other animals up close.
With an extension of over 550,000 square metres, Mirabilandia is Italy’s largest amusement park and the one most able to renew itself year after year, guaranteeing even the most frequent visitors many attractions with every visit.
Those looking for high-adrenalin experiences will find what they're looking for, but even those who prefer quieter attractions will leave Mirabilandia at the end of the day fully satisfied with a desire to return.
The park is truly designed for everyone and you can have fun even without getting on one of the many attractions for all ages, enjoying the many shows such as the western-themed action show Lucky Lucy, the musical dedicated to Zorro and the show taking spectators on a journey through extravagant costumes and Hollywood classics, as well as the ever-popular Hot Wheels City stunt show.
On summer evenings, on the other hand, the park's large central lake hosts the thrilling show The Last Pan, a water challenge between Peter Pan and Captain Hook with special effects and amazing evolutions on jet skis.
Mirabilandia's most adrenalin-filled attractions
Do you want an adrenalin rush? Experience the thrill of hurtling at the speed of an F1 car with iSpeed accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.2 seconds. If you are not afraid of heights, you can choose between Oil Tower 1 for an 80-kilometre-per-hour drop or Oil Tower 2 for a breathtaking drop. Why not try both?
Katun, Europe's number 1 inverted coaster, will take you on a journey through time and space at 110 kilometres per hour along a course of more than 1,200 metres. And if you are not afraid to get wet, the world's highest water coaster awaits you in the Route 66 area of Mirabilandia.
A child-friendly amusement park
All the park's attractions have access limits at the entrance and a suggested minimum age for boarding, but if you want to play it safe without worrying about limits and frights for small children, Mirabilandia has an entire section dedicated to young visitors.
At Bimbopoli you can find a two-storey horse-drawn carousel, a colourful playground, a fun little train that runs through the area, a funny-looking talking house and a flying roller coaster for children aged 3 and up.
Since 2022, Nickelodeon characters have also landed in Mirabilandia. PAW Patrol, SpongeBob SquarePants, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Dora the Explorer are available to young visitors for photos and shows that will bring more than a few smiles.
Mirabeach, a tropical island a stone's throw from Ravenna
There is no shortage of water attractions at Mirabilandia, but if you prefer a day at the beach among slides, wave pools and raft rides through the rapids, Mirabeach is for you. This large water park is located behind Mirabilandia, next to Lake Standiana.
