Oblivion: The Black Hole


Oblivion: The Black Hole is a steel roller coaster under construction at Gardaland amusement park in Lake Garda, Italy. The ride is one of many Dive Coaster models to be manufactured by Swiss roller coaster manufacturer Bolliger & Mabillard.

When the attraction opens, it will be the first vertical drop roller coaster in Italy.

Marketing

The theming and marketing campaign of the ride feature many similarities to Oblivion, the world's first vertical drop roller coaster situated at fellow Merlin Entertainments park, Alton Towers.

The ride also shares the same 'ultimate rollercoaster' slogan that was used originally for Thirteen.

Ride experience

After climbing to the top of the lift hill, the train begins turning to the left before being suspended over a vertical drop on a holding brake.

After a few seconds, the train is released and plummets down the vertical drop into a subterranean tunnel. After leveling out and ascending back out from the tunnel, the train flips through an immelmann and over an airtime hill, before navigating a 270° helix.

Proceeding from the helix, the train passes through a heartline roll before entering the brake section and returning to the station.
