Gardaland is ready to welcome the Stone Giant, star of the new Jumanji The Adventure ride

Sunday, 02 January 2022 20:08

This is the most talk-about news of Gardaland's 2022 season: a new and exciting dark ride for adventure lovers right in the heart of the park. Work continues unhindered on the construction site of Jumanji The Adventure, the world's first attraction based on the popular Sony Pictures film franchise.

Five exciting animatronic features

Visitors can expect a jeep ride along a dark path through the jungle: encountering dangerous animals and obstacles of all kinds, with the guests' mission being to save the world of Jumanji from a powerful curse by bringing the precious gem back to the legendary temple. Of particular interest will be the attraction’s five animatronics, from a desk that opens up to become to an immense hippo and a scary spider, to the hand and head of the fearsome stone Giant.

Transporting the Giant from Genoa’s docks to Gardaland

The Giant, the most surprising of the various animatronics and the great antagonist of the adventure, is currently on board a cargo ship powering across the Mediterranean towards Italy. Given the huge bulk of the Giant, three 6-meter long trucks await him at the port of Genoa ready to transport him to Gardaland, where the final painting will be carried out and the final details added.

A massive stone giant almost four times human height

The dimensions of the stone Giant are truly amazing as the head measures 6.45 meters in height, almost four times a human being, and about 6 meters in width, while the hand stands 4 meters high with a palm 3 meters wide! Its creation was long and complex and the initial design phase was managed by the Gardaland creative team. The actual construction took place in Turkey over the course of two months at the headquarters of the Futuraform company that creates scenography and animatronics for amusement parks, cinemas and hotel chains all over the world.

Architects, designers and gardeners are hard at work

At the moment, over 100 operators are hard at work on the Jumanji construction site, with employees of 20 companies specialized in many diverse fields: from architectural and light design, through to 3D printing, metalworking and gardening operations.
