As it concentrates its efforts on the new Luna Park at Coney Island in New York, Zamperla has severed its formal links with the Minitalia Leolandia park near Milan, Italy (pictured).
Alberto Zamperla, head of the ride manufacturer Antonio Zamperla SpA, took a minority stake in the park, about 90 minutes from his company’s headquarters in Vincenza, back in May 2007. A number of improvements followed, including the addition of 19 new Zamperla rides, and for a while the company used the park as an unofficial showroom.
Several such rides have since been repeated for Luna Park at Coney Island, New York, with very similar theming and the park, which is operated by Central Amusement International (CAI), also features ex-Minitalia Leolandia staff including general manager Fernando Velásquez.
