The world’s first mini theme park to be inspired by a motorcycle brand is now under construction. “Ducati World” will occupy 35,000 m2 inside Mirabilandia, the famous Italian amusement park located in Ravenna, in the Emilia-Romagna region.
The laying of the first stone last month was attended by Mirabilandia management and by Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati, and MotoGP and SBK flag bearers Andrea Dovizioso and Marco Melandri. The two champions, both hailing from the area, witnessed the start of the work and can’t wait to try out the new Ducati World attractions for themselves.
The Ducati World attractions will include a racing-inspired interactive roller coaster, which simulates a ride on a Panigale V4. This stunning attraction transforms passengers into real riders. It lets them control vehicle acceleration and braking, making every run an authentic head-to-head between bikes roaring along parallel rails. The area will also host a facility entirely dedicated to the Ducati Experience, with latest-generation ride simulators, unprecedented family attractions and a Ducati Shop offering apparel and accessories. There will also be three Ducati and Ducati Scrambler-themed refreshment areas.
“Thanks to the partnership with Mirabilandia, Italy’s biggest amusement park, Ducati World will be able to provide a truly thrilling experience, with interactive motorcycling-themed attractions for adults and children alike”, said Domenicali. “Our company has always been about passion and engagement and aims to offer Ducati enthusiasts a system that goes far beyond the experience of riding the motorcycle. Ducati World, then, fits this vision perfectly. It also tightens our bond with this incredible territory, which has forged champions and fostered an unrivalled passion for speed.”
