Located between the municipalities of Vilaseca and Salou, in the province of Tarragona, is one of the largest and best valued amusement parks in our country, the mythical Port Aventura. Inaugurated in 1995, it presents six thematic areas (China, Polynesia, the Far West or Mexico and Sésamo Aventura) in which it offers the visitor the most cutting-edge emotions in the world of attractions. Throughout its 20-year history it has undergone several renovations to expand its enclosure. Today it is a large complex that in addition to the main park includes a water park (Costa Caribe Aquatic Park), a golf course (Mediterránea Beach & Golf) and four themed hotels. Next 2017, the family has grown even bigger with its latest grand opening: Ferrari Land. It is still a great mystery, but they have already announced three incredible attractions: the Rebound Towers, the Vertical Accelerator and an authentic Ferrari Ferrari circuit.
- Shambhala, expedition to the Himalayas: It is the name of one of the strongest attractions in the park. On the day of its inauguration it broke three records, which it still maintains: it is the highest hypercoaster in Europe, with the highest drop (78 meters) and the one that reaches the highest speed, reaching 134 km / h. It is one of the main attractions of PortAventura, and its name is inspired by a mystical kingdom beyond the Himalayan mountains. It ranges from 3.8 to -0.5 G forces.
- Stampida: A classic of the park. This attraction is shaped like a traditional roller coaster without loops or big falls. Built on a massive wooden base, it simulates a Far West wagon race. The wagons follow different paths, separate and even cross paths.
- Tutuki splash: Heat in Portaventura? No problem. This attraction is the solution, without a doubt the best way to cool off. Take a boat ride through the Polynesian forests and prepare your swimsuit, because the soak is guaranteed in its two great falls.
- Dragon Khan: It is the jewel in the crown. Opened with the park in 1995, it automatically became a symbol of the European rollercoaster. It broke the investment record and held the highest vertical loop, with 36 meters. Today, although it has already been surpassed by others, it continues to be a benchmark and a symbol of the complex. The Dragon Khan of PortAventura begins with an incredible descent that is followed by no less than eight consecutive loops.
- Hurakan Condor: Inaugurated in 2005, it is a shuttle more than 100 meters high inspired by the sacrifices to the god Hurakan. It is made up of five gondolas with seats around a large tube, with a peculiarity: some of them will tilt when they reach the top. Will it be yours? Will you dare to climb?
Not everything is going to be incredible attractions at Portaventura World: if you have enough time, stop by one of its themed shows inspired by all over the world. In China you can enjoy the musical Around the World, for example. Polynesia is a world of endless fun: be amazed by the skills of its parrots and macaws, meet the Bora Bora Dances, or live the 3D experience with your Ice Age friends! We do not forget the little ones, who will be able to see the characters of Sésamo Aventura in the children's area of the park. Don't miss it in our shows section.
It is the area of the park designed especially for the little ones, and the happiest in all of Port Aventura! There you can find your favorite Sesame Street characters, a spectacular decoration and a lot of attractions designed for children.
