Following the post I did last week, today I bring you some of the pictures I took the day we spent at Port Aventura.
Port Aventura is a theme park in Salou and we had a really nice time there. We had been there before but I was really young so I didn’t remember much.
Since we bought the tickets at the hotel, when we got there we went straight inside and didn’t have to wait on the queues to buy tickets, which were quite big. We went on a couple of things and saw one or two shows.
The park is separated in six theme areas: Mediterrania, Far West, México, China, Polynesia and Sesame Street (which is dedicated to children). We got there after ten in the morning and even then, there were already quite a few people there. The number of people only increased as the day went by.
The first thing we went on were the Grand Canyon Rapids (I think the name is pretty self-explanatory) and when we ended the ride, we were totally soaked. It was really fun though (we even ended up going on it again in the end of the afternoon before leaving).
The next ride we went on was the Silver River Flume and we had to wait quite a bit of time on this one. It was totally worth it, though! This ride consists of getting on a trunk shaped thing and then descending a couple of falls at high speed and getting splattered with water.
This is a picture of the Hurakan Condor but none of us dared to go on this one. This ride will rise to 100 meters and then they drop the riders in a free fall. It was scary just to watch the people on it from the ground and there’s no way I could go on it. However, it’s still one of the main attractions of the park, so if you’re into this type of rides, you should go for it.
These pictures show the two biggest roller coasters of the park. The red one, called Dragon Khan, has eight loops. On the other hand, the white one, Shambhala, is the highest roller coaster in Europe (76 meters) and it’s also the fastest European roller coaster, reaching 134km/h on the first and biggest descent.
These are a couple more photos of the China and Polynesia areas.
One of the shows we went to was Aves Del Paraiso (Birds Of Paradise) which was amazing! It gave us a chance to sit down and rest, while we saw all these different beautiful birds.
This is one more picture of the Shambhala roller coaster that we took when we were passing by.
This is a bit of Far West area, which was really cool too. Obviously I can’t show you pictures of every ride we went on or every attraction of the park but these were some of the ones I liked the most.
It was a really great day! By the time we got back to the hotel we were all tired but I wouldn’t have changed any of it.
Until next time,
