PortAventura Day Trip from Barcelona

Step into Europe’s most exciting theme park where you will discover the ultimate line up of rides to experience, from gentle jungle swings to full-on 135km/h adrenaline pumping coasters! PortAventura lies just 90 minutes away from Barcelona.

Once through the gates you start your adventure meandering along the walk way of Mediterrania. The terrifying Furius Baco ride frequently roars across the vibrant fishing village’s vineyards and intentionally whisks the still-calm waters of the lake, only to subside seconds later.

Leaving Mediterrania in your wake, continue your journey and you will quickly come to the Far West. Strewn with eccentric characters and iconic buildings, the Far West homes the good, the best and the unbelievable. From the Saloon shows to Stampida every guest is catered for, earn your spurs at the many fairground style games and stride confidently on to Mexico!

Explore ancient Mayan culture intertwined with traditional Mexican styles and flavours. Test your nerves on Hurakan Condor, a 100m free-fall ‘giant drop’ ride which suspends you dangling whist you absorb the sun soaked coastal view, a breathtaking ride in more ways than one! Kids need not despair, the mysterious Templo Del Fuego is an escapade in its own right, earthquakes, fire and forbidden temples are a sure recipe for excitement.

Close by another region steeped in cultural heritage and tradition looms… China! Dragon Khan dominates the China skyline, the myth goes, the red dragon comes alive with fury when humans dare climb upon his back, it is clear we never learn! Two amazing shows, Bubblebou and Chinatown exhibit the acrobatic precision and the unique entertainment China is so famed for, both are a must see.

The final region, Polynesia, is nestled under lush and diverse tropical greenery. Waterfalls of a miniature to a grand scale carve the landscape making room for the likes of Tutuki Splash, a saturating volcanic river splash ride. At certain times of day you have no choice but become drawn to the infectious rhythm and beat of the Aloha Tahiti show, live music and a dance to the Gods will keep a permanent smile on your face.

Shambhala is a rollercoaster of giant proportions! Only the brave know what lurks in the long journeys that take them over huge lakes and mountains, climbing to new heights, abysmal falls and paths through dark tunnels. Standing at 76 meters high Shambhala is the tallest ride in Europe and features the the longest fall in Europe of 78 meters... where you reach a speed of 134 km/h! Are you ready for the newest addition to PortAventura?
