  • Excellent Amusement Park. If you are a fan of Sesame Street and Woody Woodpecker you with love this place. There is a Sesame Street area and Woody Woodpecker you will see him throughout the park.They have Great Food,Games and Rides. They have some Excellent Roller Coasters. This Park is a must visit while you are in Spain. This Park a must visit during the Christmas Holidays. The Park is decorated beautifully.
  • 1. Come early and near the off season. 2. Get an Express pass for 34 euros, it's well worth it. 3. There's also an Express pass for the Ferrari land for 22 euros, well worth as well. 4. With the Express pass you can finish all the main attractions in 4 hours, and do some twice. Better than waiting for hours at the lines. 5. Enjoy.
  • Of course park is really wonderful, but you should be really very brave for visiting some attractions, I advise to come here in the morning and spend all day. The first reason: very long lines for some amusement rides, the second: there are o lot of them and you need to have time to visit everyone. But be careful, because some of rides are really horrible, huge and impressing and maybe you should get ready for it. Excellent place for entertainment.
  • A really fun amusement park. Easy to get to on public transportation from Barcelona. The few rides that they have are awesome. If you are there only for one day I highly suggest getting the express pass it was totally worth it and we got on all of the big rides in under 5 minutes.
  • One of the best entertainment parks in EU. With countless details in each theme area, it has more attractions and shows than you can see in a day. I'd rate it with 5 stars if it wasn't because as a regular visitor (season ticket holder for the last 2 years) I can state that, by far, the biggest room for improvement in the park is in: 1) the very long queues (up to 1h or more) that you will experience in most attractions, 2) for kids under 8y the park is thought for them to attend the many shows available but not to ride most of the attractions where the offering for them is very limited due to a min height requirement. Still, a must visit spot if you are in the area. Recommendation: if you are an sporadic one day visitor, I totally recommend you to purchase the "Fast Lane" ticket. Your budget won't like it, but you won't see your day wasted in endless queues (your queueing time will be reduced to 90% less)
