Gardaland is the best and largest theme park in Italy. There are many rides which have contributed to its success including: a journey amongst the pharaohs in "Valley of Kings" and a trip round a pirate village in "The Buccaneers" You can also visit the "Village of the Elves" and venture through the uncultivated jungle. However, the best rides are aimed at the bravest visitors: start with a terrifying free-fall from a height of 40 meters in "Space Vertigo", then wander through a Russian mountain range in "Blue Tornado" and finally explore some more traditional mountains in 'Magic Mountain'. There are hundreds of other attractions as well as live shows. The park which has been carefully put together, right down to the finishing touches, is also houses a number of restaurants and gift shops. Note that hours vary according to the season.
Caneva Aquapark is probably one of the most adventurous Italian water parks in the state. Amongst its many advantages is also that of being less well known, and therefore less crowded than other parks. The evocative setting of a 19th-century Caribbean village is a perfect surrounding for a water park with thousands of attractions, where trees and decorative structures are so dense as almost to block the view of the slides until you are very close. Some of these slides are only to be found here, not in the rest of Italy: the double 'Black Hole' that runs completely underground, which you travel through on a rubber tire, and the frightening 'Stukas', high and steep enough to frighten anyone. There are also more well known attractions like the 'Anaconda' or the brilliant 'Water Jump'.
