You can spend as much time in Gardaland as you like – once you're in, you're in. However, the queues can be long, especially on weekends. Be sure to get the fast-track tickets to save even more time and make the most of your time inside.
You can opt for 1 or 2-day skip-the-line entry tickets to Gardaland Amusement Park, which both include unlimited access to all the attractions.
Gardaland is open everyday of the week after winter ends, around the first week of April. The park is open year around, but in colder months you can only visit during the weekend. But when the sun comes out again, the fun comes out again.
From April to mid-June the park is open from 10am to 6pm. In mid June, Gardaland begins running its summer opening hours and stays open from 10am - 11pm.
The long summer opening hours mean you can pack more into your day, and make your Gardaland tickets far more valuable. However, on weekends, and in summer when the kids are off school, the park can get extremely busy. Unless you have fast-track tickets you could spend a lot of time in long lines.
Aim to get there early to avoid the crowds, and if you drive, remember to park close to the entrance. This way, when you leave you'll be out pretty fast.
If you’re wondering if the park is open in October or November – you’ll only be able to visit on weekends. So, you’d be better waiting until summer to get your Gardaland ticket!
There are lots of places to eat and drink at Gardaland. In fact, it probably has more options than most other theme parks. There are themed restaurants for the family, casual fast-food outlets, pizzerias, ice-cream stalls, and places to buy cold water dotted all over the park.
One of our favourite restaurants is Merlin Stube, inside Merlin's Castle, in the heart of the medieval area. This rustic farmhouse eatery will get the kids giggling thanks to the medieval music and costumes. There's also some pretty good beer on tap – or should that be mead?
There's no need at all to bring your own food and drinks into Gardaland. Why carry more when you can buy it all inside?
You should bring something warm. If you stay late after sunset and you're wet, you might get a little cold. A hat is also a good idea for that brutal midday sun!
Bring your phones, there's complimentary mobile phone charging stations available at a number of restaurants throughout the park, as well as free WiFi. So leave that location sharing on, so you can find your friends and family quickly and easily.
If you need to bring a bag, try and make it small. There's secure luggage storage in the park for a fee. If you decide to use it, make sure your baggage doesn't contain any food or drinks.
Gardaland’s official website doesn't explicitly state you can’t bring your own food and drink. If you bring your own bottle of water and a sandwich, you should be fine!
According to Gardaland’s rules, you can’t use the flower gardens for picnicking, and food is also forbidden inside your bags if you intend to use the luggage storage that is available on site.
Yes! You’re welcome to bring your pooch to the park, but they must be kept on a leash. If you’ve got a big dog, it will also have to wear a muzzle. Animals can’t climb on the rides or access the shows; in restaurants, dogs can join you in designated areas that the staff will indicate to you.
Gardaland is the closest thing to Disneyland in Italy. Inside this Italian amusement park, you’ll find fantastic rollercoasters and rides to keep the whole family entertained. Your Gardaland tickets will give you access to all of them, and you can ride them as many times as you want! On top of that, you’ll also have access to Gardaland’s special live shows.
It’s not just theme park rides. Gardaland also has a LEGOLAND® Water Park.
Entry isn’t included with a standard Gardaland ticket, so you’ll have to book a separate ticket to enjoy the waterpark’s attractions.
If you do decide to book this experience, you can expect an ocean full of activities, including several classic waterpark slides, play areas where the kids can splash around, and LEGO building locations where little ones can get creative.
There’s even a Miniland, where you can see the best of Italy in miniature. Over four million LEGO bricks have been used to reproduce the most beautiful monuments in Italy – and they’re all built to scale. Expect to see the Colosseum built more than four meters wide, the Tower of Pisa more than two meters high, and the Basilica and Bell Tower of St. Mark's Square.
There’s no shortage of things to do in Gardaland. If you wanted the full experience – Gardaland, LEGOLAND® Water Park, and SEA LIFE – you could easily lose a few days here.
For the best experience with your Gardaland ticket, you might want to consider two days. There are over 30 rides in Gardaland, and if you want to experience one of the other nearby attractions – the waterpark or the aquarium, you’ll need more time.
