WHERE - HOW - WHEN
Leolandia Amusement Park is located in Capriate San Gervasio, 17 km from Bergamo and just over 15km from Orio al SerioAirport
The park is equipped with a car park (car and caravan) for a cost of € 5,00 a day(for cars).
Alternatively, you can leave your car at the mall’s free parking or at the freeway parking lot (N.B. Mc Donald’s parking has 1 / 1.5 hour rest limit, surely not enough to enjoy the park).
The entrance fee depends on the day you decide to visit the park and, for children, according to the height (up to 90 cm high the ticket is free)
There are, however, some tips to spend less, like, for example, buying a fixed-term ticket (online directly from the site), possibly some days in advance.
For those who travel many miles to please their children, packages (including on the park website) are also available (including hotel stay).
On these packages and on the hotels we can not say anything, as considered the proximity to the park, we went back to our cottage the same day (ps Jacopo slept twelve hours straight, which was so extraordinary that I got up 4/5 times to check that he wasn’t sick).
“And if it rains?” For those who bought the ticket and visited the park on a rainy day it’s possible to return for free to give families the opportunity to live out their extraordinary day.
OPENING TIME - LUNCH BREAK
Opening hours of Leolandia amusement park is from 10am to 6pm (Mon-Sat-Sun), with special opening times for special events or holidays.
As far as the lunch break is concerned, the park has many refreshment points (sooner or later the most irriducible children stop, instantly developing a wolf-like appetite!).
There are numerous bars and restaurants with a selection of seasonal dishes and gluten free menus for special needs.
In addition, for packed lunch lovers, there are two picnic areas where you can eat your meal, as well as spread over several areas in the park, baby bottle warmers and microwave ovens for the tiniest of kids.
New mothers can also benefit from 7 nurseries for nursing, changing nappies, or just resting!
However, on the park web site you can check timetables and individual events of the day.
Peppa Pig's World
Leolandia Amusement Park is basically divided into two large areas, the first on the right of the main entrance, dedicated to the youngest.
In this area we find, in fact, the world of Peppa Pig, an area entirely devoted to the piggy so loved by children, as much as hated by parents.
Here we find the perfect reconstruction of the house of the Pig family, Mr Bull‘s yard, the legendary Father Pig’s red car and the famous mud puddles (fake in the winter months).
Needless to say, fun is assured; Jacopo looked like a mad ball, jumping left and right.
At the end of the tour (both at home and at the yard) you can take a picture with Peppa and her brother George.
