About
Cavallino Matto is the amusement park of Tuscany. It’s situated in a landscape context of great natural beauty immersed in the beautiful pinewood of Marina di Castagneto Carducci, It’s at 500 mt. from the coast awarded for twenty years with the Blue Flag of Europe. The park has many and important attractions (over 30) located in an area of 70000 square meters including the colorful little train, the roller coaster for adults and children and the Shocking Tower, 50 mt of pure adrenaline from which you can admire the beautiful Tyrrhenian coast.Moreover, inside the park you can find aquatic rides and big structures for the shows like Cinema 4D Movie Stars Theatre and the Grande Pala Verde which can contains 600 people. The Parks has an important didactic area for (the) schools. The project “Green Park Experience” aims to bring (the) kids to discover the unspoiled nature where the park is located. Through a nature trail a tutor offers the chance to know the flora and fauna typical of the Mediterranean wood. Following the motto “Learning has never been so funny” the students will engage themselves in workshops of environmental education about the value of reusing waste and how transform cans and bottles in colorful and fun characters. The students can also learn a draft road safety education, through a path with road signs on board of mini-cars and with the help of a policeman directing the traffic!

Stand Up Roller Coaster- No Lines!
Nov 2019
Went with our 3 kids (9,7,4) in November at the end of their season and loved this park! Never have we been to a park where you can hope off a ride, run around and get back on again. They actually had to post signs on the bigger "adrenaline" rides that you can't go on them too frequently! The kids loved the stand up roller coaster (the older kids are tall so it was their first upside down coaster). My husband and I loved the drop tower where you can see over the massive gorgeous canopy of trees to the sea... and then drop 50m ha ha... Good for the whole family. Can't speak for the food as we brought a picnic, but we liked that there weren't a lot of extra costs that would make the kids beg for more stuff. We even liked the shows although we speak no Italian and have no idea what they were saying. The science and dino shows had as laughing regardless. A perfect day out really!

Clean and functional, OK for small kids - nothing special in European comparison
Sep 2019 • Family
I found the park disappointing for its price. It’s OK for a family with smaller kids, but really nothing compared to the bigger European or UK parks:

1. In September only open on weekends (something we found astonishing)!

2. The inside kiosks ONLY take cash, which is a cheap anachronism in 2019. The kiosk staff was unable to explain they habe an ATM at the entrance (outside the gates).

3. Then, the park has only a 5 larger (=exciting) rides, all the rest is really for small kids around 5-8. If you’re not there with toddlers, I would guess you can finish it in 2 hours max.

4. One big ride (Jurassic Water Thing) was closed „because of problems“. No info upfront on the gates or on the website, and of course no discount.

5. Even in the most tame rides, children have to be accompanied by an adult below the age of 8, which is a bit silly with the electrical cars, or the very slow water rides or the baby roller coasters, which my 7 year old could have all done alone, and I was a bit too tall for as an adult.

Only really positive outstanding was how clean and relatively new everything was, and how nice the surroundings were, with many pine trees and forrest around, and directly situated by the coastline.

Great place for small kids
Sep 2019 • Family
We’ve visited Cavallino Matto with 3kids- 5,5 and 3years old. It was a great fun for them with many attractions and no queues at all! Half of the day was absolutely enough to make all rides and one show, so I recommend to go for a “off peak” ticket (2.30-6.30pm). Not so many thrilling attractions for for adults or teenagers can be a little bit boring.

Excellent for the family
Aug 2019 • Family
We’ve visited cavallino matto with our 4 and 7 year old whilst on holiday in Tuscany. We had a brilliant time. Very short queues if at all for most rides. The new dinosaur themed rides were brilliant. There was some very wet rides so take a change of clothes or swimmers.
We went to all the shows and enjoyed them all even the 4D movie that was in Italian.
Well worth the money as you can go on all the rides as many times as you like compared to the queues in the UK.

The Crazy Hortsic, great fun beneath the Tuscan pines
Aug 2019 • Family
Went there two years ago and now again (Aug-2019) with kids now aging 5 and 8. Both times have been excellent experiences. The park is beautifully situated beneath the pines. So also on a very hot day, this is an absolute bullseye to spend your day as there is plenty of shades. There are numerous water rides to get that needed cooling down. Staff are very considerate and cheerful, they really add to the experience. Ice cream, water, food inside the park are of good quality and are priced honestly. Enjoy the smiles of your kids as they will have a fab experience.

Fun day out if you are in the area
Aug 2019 • Family
Great family day out. Good range of rides to suit all ages and, more importantly, heights. Some really exhilarating rollercoaster last, including a couple for really quite small children.

Project 1 and the Jurassic River were particular favourites. The Yucatan and Freestyle, for teenagers and adults, are not for the fainthearted! We also saw a couple of the shows - Dino Live and the American Water Show - and both were entertaining in their own way!

We took a picnic so I can’t comment on the food choices, but the water and ice lollies were priced as anywhere else in the area.

The park is really well kept. The facilities were all clean, and were cleaned several times over the day etc. All the rides were open with minimal queues.

If you are in this area of Tuscany, I would definitely recommend it.

If you don’t mind getting wet!
If you want full throttle theme park, this is not for you. There are a few Adrenalin rides for teens +, but mainly cater for under 12’s and young families.
This is our third visit over six years, but our teenagers still had fun. There are a couple of water rides so be prepared to get wet. We visited on a Monday and the queues were non existent, we could easily get off, run around and get on again. We have been to quite a few theme parks where the average queue time could be 50 minutes +, not here.

Brilliant plsce
Jul 2019 • Family
Visited as a family of four, kids aged 2 and 4 1/2. They both LOVED it. 2 year old daughter couldn’t go on many rides as only 89cm but son went on loads and daddy enjoyed the ‘adrenaline’ rides. Daughter loved the horse rides, car school and woodland boat trip.

Food at lunchtime was amazing for a ‘theme park’. You can also take picnics.

Dinosaur area really good if you like dinos, 3D cinema thing brilliant, loud and a bit scary although our daughter managed to fall asleep in it as she was shattered!

Great value day out compared to U.K. parks of similar size / quality. Search online for discount tickets and book online in advance to save a few euros.

Great fun
Jul 2019 • Family
We’ve had a blast visiting this place today. We went for the afternoon rate tickets (saving about 20 EUR) arriving around 15.30 but we could have easily spent the whole day there. Good rides for all small and older ones and almost no queues at all. Jurrasic water ride is brilliant. Also get ready to get soaked there and on the boats :) Very clean and well catered for in terms of food ans snacks. Well worth a visit with the kiddos.

Great little theme park
Sep 2018 • Family
We visited this park with two children aged 4 and 8. Its quite expensive to get in (€95 for all of us), but otherwise its a great little theme park.

There are about 30 rides including several pretty scary rides worthy of a place at somewhere like Thorpe Park. There are also plenty of rides for the less brave and younger kids such as the driving school, water boat water battle ride (you'll get soaked) and safari. The park also ran three shows including a pretty impressive diving show.

Its clean and well kept and we never queued for more than 5 mins on anything. In fact, most rides there were no queues at all.

Definitely recommended as a nice family day out.
