Leolandia theme park in Italy celebrates its 45th anniversary this year, and the resort is preparing to launch a range of new attractions for the 2016 season.

The park, which is located to the east of Milan, is set to welcome seven new shows and a rich entertainment programme.

In addition, new meet and greet characters will be dotted around Leolandia, and a new Thomas the Tank Engine ride will take guests on a tour around the resort.
