PortAventura World

PortAventura

PortAventura World is Spain’s biggest and best theme and leisure park. When visiting Salou a trip to the PortAventura  World theme park is a must. A walk through the different themed area’s brings you to the many rides and attractions, enough to keep any age group happy. Money can be saved by purchasing multi-day tickets to the park, as I am sure you will want to return.

The best time to visit PortAventura is a week day, with weekends and public holidays seeing a rush to the park which can result in some lengthy queues. PortAventura can be easily reached from Salou with a short bus, taxi, or roadtrain ride. A taxi from Salou to the park costs just a few euros. You can purchase discounted tickets before you travel and save money and save time on queueing.

Some of the Rides at PortAventura World
Dragon Khan
The Dragon Khan in the land of China is probably PortAventura’s best known coaster, and some say it is still the most fearsome. The Dragon Khan is likely to be your first glimpse of PortAventura as you near the resorts en route from Reus airport. With 8 loops and towering above the theme park the Dragon Khan is an amazing sight. Dare you attempt to overcome your fear and tame this dragon are you ready for the coaster ride of your life at over 70mph.

Furious Baco
One of the newest white knuckle rides at PortAventura and found in Mediterrania. This one is for the speed thrill seekers. Before this ride opened it was known as the accelerator, for obvious reasons! 135km/h is fast, 135km/h in 3 seconds is the Furious Baco. Now this is where you get to see what white knuckle is, get on, feel the adreneline and feel the rush.

Hurakan Condor

Another towering feature of PortAventura and found in the Mexico land, the Hurakan Condor looms above you at 100m high, dare you get taken to the top to admire the views of the Costa Dorada before being dropped like a stone, leaving your stomach behind as you hurtle towards the group at breathtaking speed. Will you survive the 100m plunge into the void of darkness.

Stampida

The Far West gives us the Stampida, not one but two coasters. This twin coaster see’s you racing side by side red against blue on a traditional bone shaking wooden roller coaster. Some say the wooden coasters are the best, and give you that incredible feeling. The 1km wooden track of the Stampida will give you the ride of your life, feel the rumble, feel the Stampida.

El Diablo

The old silver mine in the land of Mexico is deserted, the miners have gone never to re-appear, dare you explore El Diablo and ride in an old mine cart over the creaking clattering rails, hurtle to the depths of the mine, twisting and turning. Hold on tight it is going to be fast and furious. What is hidden in the shafts of this old mine, if you enter to find out, will you be seen again?

Grand Canyon Rapids

The Grand Canyon Rapids in the Far West gives you a soaking ride on the white water, follow the rapids around the course crashing around the rocks and over the waterfalls. The rapids will carry you along through the canyons, keep an eye out for the sharp shooting snipers on the bridges armed with water guns trying to ensure you get that little bit more wetter. A good job there is the warm Costa Dorada sunshine to dry you out again afterwards.

Tutuki Splash

In Polynesia you will find the Tutuki Splash, ride in a barge into the depths of a volcanos crash, carried along on gushing volcanic lava. Brace yourself as the volcano spurts your barge out over the top and down the steep side of the volcano. Hold on tight as you cascade down and land with a tremendous splash. Another chance for another soaking at the PortAventura World theme park.

Fumanchu

In the land of China stands Fumanchu. There are carousels that we all know and love, but then there is Fumanchu which is like no other carousel. It is big, very big, let Fumanchu take you to new heights, gliding through the air getting higher and higher, whisked round and round, twisting and turning in you seat, until you feel you are flying. You might think Fumanchu looks like a kids ride, but then this is Fumanchu and this is PortAventura.
