Your Guide to PortAventura World
Whether you’re on a city break in Barcelona or a sun holiday in Costa Dorada, PortAventura World is the place to go. It’s a fully thought out with 5 hotels, 3 theme parks, more than 40 rides, ten shows and over twenty venues, both big and small, to eat.
PortAventura World is divided into 3 parks:
- PortAventura Park
- PortAventura Caribe Aquatic Park
- Ferrari Land
PortAventura Park itself is divided into six different themed areas all of which have rides, shows, shops and food from the region. Our Product Expert, Stephen recommends getting the lay of the land with the park’s toy steam train…
“When you first enter the park, head straight to the mini train station 2 minutes from the main entrance and hopping on the toy steam train that runs slowly around each zone of the park. This ride takes about 20 minutes and gives you a good glimpse of what’s in each zone and the short distances between them. “
The areas in PortAventura Park are:
- Far West
Themed after a Mediterranean fishing village, this area is far from quiet or quaint. Mediterránia is home to the Furius Baco rollercoaster which goes from 0 to 135km/h in just 3 seconds! If you need something calmer, you can get a boat from Port de la Drassana to ancient China.
Feel like you’re in a tropical jungle with Polynesia’s exotic attractions from the Tutuki Splash to the Kontiki catamaran. You’ll also learn all about the traditional dress, dance and wildlife from these Pacific Ocean islands.
Join the characters from Sesame Street in SésamoAventura. It’s designed for the whole family to enjoy, with a rollercoaster just for the kids and 9 other rides to keep them entertained.
Step into ancient China and experience zero gravity on the Dragon Khan rollercoaster, explore the Himalayas on Shambhala, boasting the longest drop in the Park, or take it easy with the Chinese tradition of tea drinking, or teacup spinning on the Tea Cups ride.
Live to the rhythm of the Mexican rituals in the México area of PortAventura. Ride on an authentic wooden railway carriage through El Diablo- Tren de La Mina, explore the Mayan maze of El Secreto de los Mayas or try the 100m height free fall of Hurakan Condor to name a few!
Go back to a time of cowboys in North America in the Far West section of PortAventura. Spin in the Crazy Barrels, get splashed along the Grand Canyon Rapids, find your way out of Laberinto BlackSmith maze or take a refreshing journey through the sawmill on Silver River Flume.
PortAventura Caribe Aquatic Park
With an indoor and outdoor pool for the whole family, Bahama Beach and the adult pool, Playa Paraíso, PortAventura’s Caribe Aquatic Park offers plenty of opportunities to relax or to build up your energy to try one of their 12 water attractions.
What waterslides should you try?
Obviously, the answer is all of them, but our top three are:
At a dizzying 31 metres high with 55-degree descent, King Khajuna, the newest ride in Caribe, is not for the faint-hearted.
El Río Loco
Take it easy after an intense ride like King Khajuna and float for 1500m on El Río Loco lazy river.
Another intense waterslide with two routes to choose from, El Tifón does not disappoint as you twist and turn through the turbulent waters.
