Gardaland introduces Easy Rider service to increase park accessibility

Gardaland is introducing an exclusive initiative aimed at people with mobility, sensorial and cognitive impairments, providing them with a personalised itinerary.

In conjunction with ProgettoYeah! Gardaland has created Easy Rider, a service designed to ensure that visitors with disabilities can enjoy the park to the fullest. Guests with visual limitations, reduced mobility, autism, down syndrome can also use the Easy Rider service to organise their day inside the park.

Gardaland is the first Park to offer a personalised, tailor made service to Guests with special needs, and Easy Rider offers guests the chance to relax and enjoy the day without any worries about navigating the park grounds. The assigned Easy Rider staff will put together a customised itinerary based on the needs of the group and guide guests to the entrance of each ride, describing its characteristics before climbing aboard.

“Accessibility is a complex theme that presents new aspects and new needs every day, generated by a simple and justified request by the Guests to enjoy themselves and married with our desire to involve everybody in the fantastic experience of the Park,” commented Danilo Santi, general manager theme parks Gardaland. “We saw to it that access at Gardaland would be as inclusive as possible for all people with disabilities.”

The Easy Rider service is available on the opening days of the Park from April to July and in the month of September; the hours are from 10.30 AM to 1.30 PM and from 2 to 5 PM.
