Flying Island

Theme Park Insider Reader Rating: 10 out of 10

Observation Tower

Published:

Way up in the sky, at a height of 50 metres, the flying island rises, to give an unrivaled view of Gardaland and Lake Garda. It's a slightly different structure to your average observation tower though, as your 'island' is attatched to the end of a support, which then one end rises of to become vertical. You have to see it to understand. While it looks very unsafe from the outside, it feels very safe from the inside and really does provide an excellent panoramic view of everything. It's like Space Vertigo for the cowards.
