Park News - (8/29/19) A close up video showing off the aftermath of the collapse of the Back to the Backstage monorail track and cars can be found below, which also gives us a better idea as to where the incident took place.
(8/28/19) According to news reports seven guests were hurt at the Movieland Park in Italy when “a train overturned”. Based on the ride in the photo this was no train accident, but rather it appears that the park’s mini monorail ride around the park had a section of track with four cars of riders on it collapse or break from the supports and hit the ground below. Follow this link to see what the ride vehicles are supposed to look like when on the track posted to the park’s website where the attraction is called “Back to the Backstage”, where it actually uses a faux Back To The Future theme. Thanksfully it looks like the track collapse too place at one of the sections of the ride where it is low to the ground, as there are many other sections of the layout where it rides fairly high in the air.
2020 - Space Mission Mars, Space Mission Orbit, Space Ranger and Medusa - (3/17/20) The Movieland Park in Italy has updated their website with a little more information about what is planned for 2020. In addition to the previously mentioned Space Mission Mars attraction the park is also promoting a new space-shot tower experience called Space Mission Orbit, and a set of space themed bumper cars to be called Space Ranger. The site also lists a new show called Medusa that I’m told will be taking the place of the former Tomb Raider Machine attraction area.
(12/29/19) According to a post on Facebook by a fan page, Movieland Park in Italy has begun vertical construction on a new attraction coming in 2020 to be simply called, “SPACE”. According to our source, the park is planning on building some kind of “homemade” version of Disney’s Mission: Space style concept, a space flight simulator that will subject guests to high g-forces via a centrifuge style ride system. Based on some of the other wacky and unique rides we’ve seen the park add over the years, I am curious to see how they pull this one off.
