Totally Fun Company produces spectacular European stunt show

Mirabilandia Theme Park in Ravenna, Italy has reopened under new ownership and a blockbuster stunt show.

Park owner Gottlieb Loffelhardt, who also owns Phantasialand Theme Park in Bruhl, Germany, launched the May 1997 opening with the largest stunt spectacular in Europe.

The show, "Police School" was written and produced by the Totally Fun Co.'s creative team, headed by President/ CEO Peter Alexander.

Mirabilandia's turnaround has proven that live performances with big impact means big drawing power.

Alexander is well known in the theme park business as the creator/producer of such
well-known attractions as Universal Studios' Back to the Future, the Ride; E.T. the Ride; Kongfrontation; and Earthquake, the Ride; as well as the Batman stunt shows for Six Flags Theme Parks.

He was contracted by Loffelhardt to produce a show that would guarantee the successful opening of the Mirabilandia Park under his new ownership.

Loaded with pyrotechnics and nonstop thrills, "Police School"is the piece de resistence
in stunt show special effects. There are a Ferrari and a Cobra, a "wheelie car," stunt / jumping motorcycles and Police cars.

The comedy/ adventure show was the hit of the park this season, as evidenced by
steady increases in park attendance. As most European park owners are finding, Mirabilandia's turnaround has proven that live performances with big impact mean big impact mean big drawing power.

Totally Fun Co. is also producing King Solomon's Mine Stunt Spectacular at the Walibi Flevo Park in the Netherlands.
