Located near Tarragona, in the beautiful Costa Daurada, PortAventura World is one of the most important in Europe, among theme parks.
Born in 1994, the Park has been extremely successful, so much so as to be one of the major competitors of the Disney brand. Today, it is permanently in the Top 10 of the most visited theme parks in Europe, with around 4 million people every year.
PortAventura World is much more than just a park. It is a real resort with 6 hotel and three theme parks. In addition to PortAventura, the offer was expanded in the following years by the Ferrari Land and Caribe Aquatic Park. The first is a splendid park dedicated to the Ferrari brand. The second one, instead, is an extraordinary aquatic park. You can choose the offer that best suits your tastes. In one or more days. Maybe, starting from Barcelona, just 90 kilometers from here.
However, fun is guaranteed. For young and old.
PortAventura Park e Ferrari Land, are open every day from the end of March to the beginning of November, and during the period of the Christmas holidays. From November to December 23, the two parks are open exclusively during the weekend.
Timetables differ depending on the period, the day is on holidays. The normal timetable of the two Parks is from 10: 00 to 19: 00. In summer and on weekends, closing time is often postponed to 23: 00 and sometimes to 01: 00. After the 19: 00, generally, evening shows and shows are scheduled, which require an additional ticket.
