b2ap3_thumbnail_GARDALAND_Oblivion-The-Black-Hole_inaugurazione-2015-7.jpgMy dear friends, welcome to My Own Italy to discover Italy with my personal touch!

Our travel today is to Lake Garda.

Are you ready for one hundred seconds of pure adrenaline? Gardaland, to enjoy a unique adrenaline experience: Oblivion - The black hole.

42.5 metres in height, a 566 metre long track , a speed of almost 100 km/h, a vertical plunge descent - 87° of inclination - towards a mysterious space-time passage, tailspins and , head-over-heels upturns, 360° rotations: those are the first, effective key words to present Oblivion - The Black Hole, the new vertical plunge roller-coaster, the first in Italy and the longest ones in Europe!

 
b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_4865.JPGThe white colour of the track of Oblivion The Black Hole and the orange of its trains – designed and built to resemble space vehicles – stand tall over every other attraction of the Park, inside an area themed in NASA style. But it is mainly the Black Hole,  the core of the Oblivion experience, that attracts the sights of Guests.

Besides the mouth of the tunnel one can spot some truly unusual elements, completely distorted and sucked in. It looks like they have been dragged inside the conduct, almost swallowed: part of the roof of a saloon, a windmill, a little cart, a water tank, 3 TV aerials and the van of a TV crew that had arrived on site to document the strange phenomenon.

The story narrates of a mysterious spiral standing still in the sky above the Park. An unusual vortex has swallowed in everything: aerials, vans, parts of a western saloon…

Everything has been taken away. 

b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_4864.JPGA group of scientists started working on explaining what had happened: the spiral became a black hole, a space-time conduct joining Planet Earth to an unknown location. 

It is now time, however, to recruit new troops! Everyone will undertake their mission into the unknown.

For lovers of thrills and strong emotions, it will be like experiencing a launch into space only for true daredevils!

Are you seriously going to climb aboard? If you feel  fearless, while waiting you’ll face tests and pass trials; a voice will guide you through each required action.

At the end, you need to stop at the Oblivion shop to get your  souvenir photo to testify that makes that yes, we did it!

Now we can also enjoy all the attractions of the park (Blu Tornado, Raptor, ecc) but time's going on so we must go out and reach the exit.

We had a great time.

Bye Bye, Gardaland!
