Movieland sits on the shores of Lake Garda, just a couple of miles down the road from the much larger and better known Gardland. While Gardaland feels very much like a large corporate theme park, Movieland has a certain charm in its attempts to be like an Italian version of Universal Studios on a budget.
The park has some standard rides that have been given a movie overlay with some theming and ride frontages, but the park is at its best when it goes off-piste.
While it is easy to laugh at the Back to the Future monorail (which doesn't get anywhere near 88 mph!), a true highlight is the Kitt Superjet. This is a ride which takes 14 guests at a time for a trip on a speedboat on the lake used for the park's version of Waterworld, the John Rambo stuntshow.
If you only have time for one of Lake Garda's theme parks, Gardaland is definitely the one to choose, but if you have an additional half day to spare then Movieland is worth a quick visit.

A stunt show that borrows more than a little from Universal's Waterworld!
