The season will officially kick off on Saturday 28th March 2020 with the opening of the entire Gardaland Resort, including the Amusement Park, the three themed hotels and Gardaland SEA LIFE Aquarium, ready to welcome Guests to a year teeming with fun.
A special pre-opening event called Prezzemolo & Friends, designed exclusively for the younger ones, will however offer access to selected areas of the Park on the weekends of 14th-15th and 21st-22nd March.
On those dates the Park will be tailor made for children, with the opportunity to access rides dedicated to little Guests, especially Peppa Pig Land, Fantasy Kingdom, Prezzemolo Land, Prezzemolo Magic Village, the Medieval area and Foresta Incantata (Enchanted Forest). Four Adventure rides will also be available: Magic House, Jungle Rapids, Mammut and Blue Tornado. There will also be a number of entertaining live shows, fantastic spectacles, itinerant animations and engaging Meet&Greet with Prezzemolo, Peppa & Friends, Po and the 44 Gatti (44 Cats), accompanying families during those four unforgettable days.
The new season 2020 will bring about new additions for all Guests of Gardaland Park, ranging from the Meet&Greet sessions, with children’s favourite characters, such as the 44 GATTI Rock Show, to large-scale events like Gardaland Awards – Life is a movie, from the spectacular 4D cinema effects of Wonder Woman – The 4D experience to the dazzling water tricks of Aqua Fantasia – Storie di acqua, luci e colori (Stories of water, lights and colours).
Little Guests are going to give the warmest of reactions to the arrival at Gardaland of the 44 Gatti! (44 Cats) Lampo, Milady, Pilou and Polpetta – the colourful protagonists of one of the most beloved children TV series. They will be performing live in the 44 Gatti Rock Show, an unmissable show that will make all children and their families sing and dance to the tune of their most famous songs such as Granny Pina’s Noodles and 44 Gatti La Serie (44 Cats The Series). The show will be held at the Arena Hawaii, three times a day.
Aimed at an older target, made of cinema aficionados looking for captivating experiences, Gardaland presents Wonder Woman – The 4D Experience. In the lead up to the release in theatres of the second chapter of the saga, scheduled for June 2020, this powerful, high-tense cinematographic story, enhanced by extraordinary special effects and special glasses – will catapult spectators into the adventurous world of the most famous amazon in movies. Thanks to a special adaption of the movie, Guests of Gardaland will feel like they are experiencing first-hand the feats of Diana who, after leaving Paradise island with an American pilot named Steve, will be fighting to free humanity from the horrors of the Second World War and to restore peace in the human world.
The Gardaland Theatre will be play host to Gardaland Awards – Life is a movie, a new and exciting live musical which will offer a fantastic journey into the world of cinema, bringing back to life historical cult movies such as Moulin Rouge, The Bodyguard and La La Land. Live singing numbers, extraordinary special effects, spectacular scenography, amazing acrobatics and great choreographies will be the ingredients of a truly superior show.
Another unmissable spectacle will be Aqua Fantasia – Storie di acqua, luci e colori (Stories of water, lights and colours), a unique show of dancing fountains gracing Piazza Ramses several times a day: imposing water jets and arches of different colours moving to the rhythm of music will not fail to engage Visitors, freeing their fantasy.
The most important and most awaited new addition of the season will be the opening, on 28th May 2020, of LEGOLAND Water Park Gardaland, the first LEGOLAND Water Park in Europe and the first in the world to be built inside an Amusement Park not bearing the LEGOLAND brand.
This year’s new addition at Gardaland SEA LIFE Aquarium will be Oceano Interattivo (Interactive Ocean), a completely renovated room that will offer its little Guests an original, creative experience.
After the success of last season, the Notti all’Acquario (Nights at the Aquarium) will also be back. An evocative event that allows children between the age of 8 and 12 to spend the night inside the Aquarium and, after a guided visit by night, to stay overnight in the room dedicated to the Tropical Lagoon, in close contact with the creatures populating the ray tank.
Finally the sea lion tank, completely renovated to suit the requirements of its three inhabitants, will offer one more opportunity to see those animals from even closer: a window glass will be set up, right by the tank, so that Guests will be able to walk briefly inside the territory of these fascinating specimens. The trainers will make the involvement with sea lions even more thorough by inviting younger Guests to actively partake in a new activity.
