This is a serious theme park, Spain's biggest and baddest, with a collection of wild rides - like Dragon Khan and Furios Baco, both clocking in at well over 100kph (65mph) - that will keep thrill junkies coming back for more. Port Aventura is the flagship park, divided into several "lands," such as the Wild West, Mexico, and China, with themed shows, restaurants, and gift shops. Though it could keep a family busy all day (or week), that's just the beginning.
In addition to Port Aventura, you could also visit several other parks - Port Aventura Aquatic Park, with dolphin shows and water slides; the Beach club, right on the Caribbean; and Golf PortAventura, with three premium golf courses. Savvy travelers can find packages that include several parks, special shows, and even discounts on hotels.

My experience in Port Aventura was unforgettable! Just one advice for the people going in the strong season - buy an express card otherwise you'll have to be patient with the hour and a half (90 minutes) waiting for each ride :)))
This is something that you definitely have to do! This was a dream come true for me :)

everything went smoothly and trip was good. just one thing it would be better if the pick up back to the hotel was later than 18 30 as Port aventura is big and wonderfrul and it is worth taking the most of it

nice trip, queues were not so big as expected. hint - right upon arrival start from the furthest rides - dragon and hurakan, then go opposite of the queue direction. On the way back we did not get on the bus but went to barcelona by train, spent some time there and returned to Malgrat by bus. Recommend! btw, there is no place to buy tickets at Port Aventura station so you will have a free ride to Barcelona!
The closest airport to Port Aventura Park is Tarragona's Reus Airport (REU), with just handful of year-round direct flights to major European cities from April through September. It's about 15 minutes by bus or taxi between the airport and the park.
Renfe trains stop at the Port Aventura station, right at the park, while the AVE line's Camp de Tarragona station has regular bus service to the park. There are several hotels right next to Port Aventura, catering to park goers.
