Rome has plenty to keep you busy. But if you’re looking for a day of family-friendly fun or an adrenaline-filled afternoon with friends, an amusement park is a great way to spend the day. Enter Rainbow MagicLand.
On one sunny Opening Day, I took some experts to investigate. Francesca and Camilla (aged 9 and 11) were my partners in crime. We tried everything from the Shock ride – a corkscrew that spins and suspends you upside down – to the classic Merry-Go-Round.
From the courageous to the faint-hearted, Rainbow MagicLand’s rides vary from the watery falls of “Yucatan” to “5D Huntik” where you shoot monsters while riding through darkness. Of course, there are also the amusement park classics like shooting pellets at bottles and competing on Dance Dance Revolution. “ll Regno dei Piccoli” is a special area perfect for smaller children; and for fans of Winx, there is even a planet of fairies.
Located just 30 minutes from Rome’s centre, you feel like you’re in another world far, far, away.
