This way you can decide what attraction suits you better, depending on your tastes and age. The scenery is impeccable, it makes you feel at home already upon entering the park.
Sometimes they require a minimum or maximum height and / or age to get on the rides. All the restrictions can be found in the information brochure you get along with your park ticket.
Once you are in the park, grab the entertainment schedule and choose to attend the shows you like. Advisable is to make the visit of 2 days, so you don’t miss any attraction, any show.
In each thematic area is a restaurant or more, plus outdoor stalls where you can buy a sandwich or the ice cream, beverages, snacks, etc.
At specific times of the year such as Halloween or Christmas, Port Aventura is set in the atmosphere reflecting the topic of the festival. If you visit the park on November 1 or the nearby dates, you’ll see skulls and other details as a part of the decor. In December, the park turns into the huge Christmas place. It’s lovely to spend a few days with the children and to live the pure essence of magic and illusion of those dates. Imagine in a town called Christmas with attractions, shows, characters.
In addition, the park has an aquatic area with rides, open in summer months called Aquatic Park, ideal place to cool off when the summer is in full swing.
