HOW TO ARRIVE
The park is on the south-eastern shore of Lake Garda. It is easily reached by the A4 or A22 (Brennero motorway), exit at Peschiera. From here, you just have to follow the many indications leading to the park, as it is just a few kilometers north.

The first shuttle always starts 30 minutes before the opening time of the park and will continue every 30 minutes until closure.

WHAT TO DO IN GARDALAND FOR ADULTS AND CHILDREN
The Fantasy attractions are generally thought for the youngest, but they are also beautiful for adultswho want, even for some minutes, to feel like a child again. Prezzemolo House is one of the more unforgettable experiences as it offers you the chance to visit the home of its main mascot: The green dragon, Prezzemolo. If you want to have a pause from walking, I suggest you take a trip with the Transgardaland express which has several stops inside the park. If you or your kids love trains, I also recommend you to go on the Monorotaia and the Ortobruco.
We all know children love to meet their cartoon friends and to make this happen, Gardaland hosts Peppa Pig and her house. This area is located right next to the main entrance and it has several attractions: the hot-air balloon, a small train and a small boat trip. Another loved cartoon for the “bigger” children, still part of the fantasy category is Kung Fu Panda, also his attractions will be worth a visit and in certain times you can participate with the Kung Fu Panda Show!
Let’s continue with the adventure category. Most of its attractions involve water so it is an ideal way to have fun and cool down a bit from the hot temperatures. In the map you will find them with the following names: Fuga da Atlantide, Jungle Rapids and Colorado Boats. All combine adventure with a little dose of adrenaline, and they will definitely give you and your family much laughter. These attractions are suitable for everyone above one meter.
