PORTAVENTURA AMUSEMENT PARK, SALOU
Experiencing PORTAVENTURA with the highest and fastest rollercoaster in Europe
PortAventura is an amusement park on the seaside in Salou, down south Tarragona (Catalunya – Spain). It features five theme areas based on civilizations (Mediterrània, Far West, México, China and Polynesia), one theme area based on Sesame Street, a water park, and currently a new area themed to the Italian sports car Ferrari is being built.
What’s special? It has the highest and fastest roller coaster in Europe, Shambhala. Its height of 76 meters gives chills also to the most brave ones, while its drop of 78 meters reaches 134 km/h and makes you feel like you are actually gonna die.
The park is on the coast and allows you to enjoy a wonderful view, especially from the Hurakan Condor tower, which is 100 mt high.
On Halloween the park organizes a themed feast with ghosts, witches and monsters all night long.
