Cavallino Matto's largest ride...
|Theme Park||Cavallino Matto|
|Opened||18 July 2015|
|Max Speed||51 mph|
Occupying a separate area of land at the back of the main park, Freestyle is Cavallino Matto's stand up rollercoaster and by far its largest ride.
Freestyle was originally manufactured by TOGO and was the Japanese company's second Stand Up coaster. Between its time in Canada and its arrival at Cavallino Matto it was overhauled and repainted in a very smart looking yellow and green colour scheme, which gleams under the Italian sunshine.
While it was at Canada's Wonderland, SkyRider was known as being one of the smoother Stand Up coasters, and this remains true in its new location. In fact, it perhaps rides even better as Freestyle, the vertical loop, helix and airtime hills all offering relatively smooth transitions and an overall exhilarating and pleasant experience.
Freestyle is a magnificent addition to Cavallino Matto. Although a juxtaposition against the park's other small family friendly attractions, the rollercoaster seems right at home and is a real highlight at the park, which is clearly proud of their acquisition and is looking after it extremely well.
