What You Can Expect
As Europe’s second largest theme park, PortAventura has something for all the family. The park is split into different cultural zones -- each based on a region in a different part of the world – with a separate area for younger children, too.
Discover a typical Catalonian coastal town at Mediterrània, watch a Wild West shoot-out in the Far West, and discover the park’s most exhilarating rides in Mexico. The largest area is China, complete with a path themed to look like the Great Wall of China, and if you take a look inside Polynesia, you’ll discover the park’s serene rides. Kids will be more than happy at SésamoAventura, an area that’s themed around Sesame Street -- the timeless children’s favorite TV show.
Take a white-knuckle ride on the Shambhala – Europe’s highest roller coaster with a 256-foot (78-meter) drop – and check out Furius Baco, an accelerator ride that’s said to be the fastest in the world with a top speed of 84 miles (135 kilometers) per hour! Boat rides, water flumes, and white-water raft rides add to the fun, and there are several exciting experience simulators, too.
In between looping-the-loops on the park’s countless rides, why not sit down to recuperate while watching a show? Performances change daily, but you can expect to see dancing and acrobatic displays as well as a Sesame Street parade featuring much-loved characters like Cookie Monster and Big Bird. There’s also an array of restaurants to keep you from feeling hungry; sit down to feast on Mexican tacos, make the most of Marco Polo’s Chinese buffet or wolf down hotdogs while walking around.
Meet back on your coach at the pre-arranged time, and then return to Barcelona, finishing your tour in the early evening.
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.
Theme park was fantastic. Slightly disappointed that after purchasing the Barcelona card there was a 20% discount card on entry to the park. Also we ended up catching the train back which took an Hour and cost only 16 Euros for 2 people. We arrived at 9.30 so waiting until 7pm to catch the coach back was far too long especially having purchased Express tickets for 25Euros which can be used once on each ride. An absolute must as the parks peak period is in the morning when literally everyone arrives, waiting time for some rides reached 3 hours. This died down by midday.
