What You Can Expect

PortAventura Day Trip from Barcelona

Have fun at PortAventura's countless attractions!

This sprawling amusement park offers a wealth of activities covering everything from thrill rides to kid-friendly play areas sure to please the whole family.

Begin your trip to the park from Calle Balmes in central Barcelona, choosing a departure time at either 8:30am, 9:30am or 2:30pm. Please note that not all departure options are offered on all days or during all times of the year, so please check at the Important Info tab for details. From there, continue by air-conditioned coach on a 1.5-hour journey south from the city to the theme park.

Once you arrive, head inside this massive adventure park (Europe’s second-largest) as you explore the park’s five distinct zones, each of which represents a different park of the world, plus a kid-friendly section for young children. There’s the Mediterrània area, modeled after a typical seaside village in Catalonia, as well as the cowboy-themed Far West section, the Asian-themed China zone (complete with Great Wall), the tropical-tinged Polynesia district. Families will also have access to the children’s SésamoAventura area, which celebrates the famous Sesame Street television show.

Spread among the park’s numerous zones are a variety of rides, offering everything from jaw-dropping thrills to more mellow amusements. Zoom down the Shambhala, the highest rollercoaster in Europe, which drops from a 256-foot (78m) peak, or strap in for a trip on board the Furius Baco, an acceleration ride that tops out at 84 miles (135km) per hour. Among the other attractions on offer are water flumes, boat rides, white-water rafting experiences and several experience simulators.

When you need to take a break, stop by one the park’s fun-filled shows. Performances change daily but include a variety of acrobatic and dance-filled delights. There’s also the Sesame Street parade featuring much-loved characters including Big Bird and Cookie Monster. For those feeling hungry, enjoy one of the park’s many eateries covering a range of cuisines such as Mexican tacos, a Chinese buffet or good old American-style hot dogs.

Finish your day by meeting back up with your coach at a pre-arranged time for the trip back to your original departure point in Barcelona.

We are a "Theme Park Family", so this was an excellent choice for us! The park had wonderful rides, great food and good shopping.....The bus got us there within 1 hour and we stayed until 7pm....I liked how the bus driver waited for a few people and not just leave right at 7pm....great day!

Me and my husband traveled to Barcelona is August of 2013. The PortAventura Trip was wonderful! We were jetted lagged for a bit of our stay and had previously order 8am tickets. Needless to say, we overslept and missed our departure time. However, the people at Julia Travels (the company organizing the trip) were so nice and accommodating. We called explaining that we overslept and they allowed for us to get on the later departure bus that day. The trip was well organized and everything transitioned very smoothly! PortAventura was very fun, with awesome rollercoasters. I most certainly suggest booking this activity!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2013

This is basically just the transportation to the park and back - about 1.5 hours drive each way and the entrance ticket in the park. The park itself is truly worth it. It has something for everyone, so all the family will be happy. We ended up buying the express cards for an additional 25 eur each in order to get one express entrance for 10 of their best rides. Express entrance means you don't have to wait in line. It was worth the extra price, as the lines are absolutely horrendous -even one hour waiting time for some of the rides.
