Interesting addition this. New area and new coaster for Mirabilandia (The Italian one) in 2019.
Think its safe to say we are going to see a Motocoaster installation. I'd assume another one from Intamin but time will tell there.

The theme park will include a new generation Russian mountain that will transform every visitor into a Ducati pilot, simulator, virtual reality, and children's attractions.

Isn't a motocoaster by Zamperla? What's an Intamin motocoaster?

Unless you mean something like Wave Breaker or Juvelen?

Oh, that's a nice surprise. Finally something major for the park, there's been quite a drought since Divertical opened, with nothing that could make me excited for a re-visit added. Looking forward to see how it turns out. :)

Why are Parques Reunidos being really nice all of a sudden

There's nothing Parques Reunidos can do right now to make me actually like them. They ruined Lake Compounce, which used to be one of my favorite parks growing up.

Also Movie Park Germany is trash and not worth going to even for credits.

Just spotted this. Not sure how reliable the info is, but a dueling Spike Coaster would be a huge disappointment...
Considering what the park has built before, yes. It is the biggest park in one of the largest economies of Europe. It has a huge B&M Invert and a large multi-inverting launch coaster. This does nothing to restore that legacy, which has been lying shattered since... well, you know.

Considering what the chain has built before, it's pretty par for the course.

Ducati: "Here are 20 million Euros to build new rides in your park!"

Parques Reunidos: "We'll build a ride for 5 million, and save the rest for... uh, other things. Don't worry, the board will make sure the money goes back to Ducati somehow. Just come back and look at our company parking lot in a month or two"

Guests: "This new ride was really crappy and does nothing to increase our excitement for the park!"

Parques Reunidos: "See? Investments don't work! Didn't make the guests happier! Next time, we'll buy a 2 million ride instead, and save even more money! Do you think we could get a partnership with Rolex for the next park expansion?"

This is a hilariously bad addition

Omg. I'm :emoji_zipper_mouth:ing dying.
I know right, can't stop laughing :emoji_sweat_smile:
I'm struggling to think of a worse decision in recent memory, we all laughed at Red Force but it's got good reviews, SW8 isn't great but will probably be a good ride, crappy Larsons and Jokers going into Six Flags parks are small investment, even the removal of Dragon Challenge will reap something world class hopefully. But this is just on another planet. There's nothing good about this at all, they could've invested properly into at least 1, maybe 2 world class experiences and built a destination like PA or EP, but no, lets get a skyline park moto thing HAHAHAHAHA.
