Port Aventura best rides
The park is GIGANTIC and there is a great number of rides to enjoy. Here is a list of the ones that you just have to try:
The Park’s most emblematic ride. A giant red structure that can be seen from any point within the park. It features 8 loops and reaches speeds of over 110 km an hour.
This is the best ride in the Mediterranean portion of the park. Furius Baco is a giant, ancient Greece-themed roller coaster. Rider hangs off the side, feet dangling, as the ride shoots them out at a break-neck speed of 135 km an hour (the fastest in all of Europe). Not for the faint of heart.
You will only have a small wooden boat to escape this Polynesian volcano. Lava will chase you down the mountain as you speed down a river on your raft. Easily the most fun water ride in the park, perfect for a hot day when you need to cool down.
Tren de la Mina El Diablo:
Another exhilarating roller coaster, this time one of the indoor variety. Guests ride in the dark on a rickety old train down into an abandoned mine, not knowing where the twists and turns are coming from.
Located in the Mexico portion of the park. This ride is a free-fall ride. You ascend through a Mexican temple, enjoying the aerial views of the park, knowing that you will drop at any moment. The tower is over 100-meter-tall, so be ready for quite a plunge.
This ride is located in the far west portion of the park. It is the classic water ride where guests take a plunge from a great hide. Fun, refreshing, a must.
Named after the lost city of the Himalayas this roller coaster is equal parts speed and vértigo. It features the largest falls f any roller coaster in Europe. The ride is designed to make you come off your seat and feel like you are truly falling. Scary stuff.
A giant Mayan labyrinth that spans over 175 square meters. This ride will test your wits, your sense of orientation, and puzzle-solving abilities.
A White-water- rapids ride down the Colorado River. Your round boat will spin and twist as you rush down the river.
The Park’s best kids’ roller coaster. If you are traveling with kids, you can’t miss out.
