  • A great day out for people of all ages. There are plenty of different slides and pools to suit both families with small children and the more adventurous. As neither of us are extremely brave we only went on a couple of the slides but we made great use of the pools as we were there for a good seven hours! We would definitely recommend going on a warm day as most of the pools are outside and got quite cold, however, we went on a slightly overcast day and still managed to find a warm pool. Both the food and the gift shop were reasonably priced with plenty of places around the site to get drinks and snacks as well as lockers to store your things in while you swim. Although the entrance price is quite expensive, there are lots of "two parks for three days" offers and it is also worth looking around online before you leave as you can find tickets at much cheaper prices.
  • Good theme park with plenty to do. Unless you're bringing food, bring lots of money as it can't get expensive. I have been fortunate enough to go during non peak times so the most I've had to queue for rides is around 45 minutes, but I can imagine any longer can get annoying. (same with any theme park really). The shows that are scattered across the park are free and well worth going too. This place is huge so you appreciate the sit down. Plenty of rides for big and small, my personal favourite the Shambala. I also went during October and it was beautifully decorated for Halloween. Definitely worth a visit if staying in Barcelona or nearby.
  • OK park is lovely, plenty to do, but would be so much better if properly staffed. Some rides have one person to admit express riders, then deal with the rest, then check the rides safe to go. As other people have also said in reviews too many Spanish kids skipping the queues , even large groups/ schools with adults in charge tend to disregard the rules, adults in charge should know better. Also park opens at 10am, but lots of the attractions don't open till 11.30am. Luckily for us our passes were for7 days , as we would have been really disappointed if they didn't, we were in Park 4 hours today and only managed to get on 2 rides. Only tip would be don't trust the boards , 10 minute wait was 60 minutes. Not once in 6 days did we manage to get on any attraction on time stated.
  • love it here.... great rides and plenty of things to do.. can be really busy, but if you get here when it opens can get a few rides in before it gets really busy. the top express pass is worth it.. but expensive at 55 euros but that unlimited and the 3 main rides included but there is also 29 euro one as well and only can use it few times. definitely for the theme park addicts
  • I'm going to give this place a 5 star review.the park is great and got some get rides. The views are great seeing shamabala in the back ground on entering the park. Great park to take your kids they will be entertained for a few days. This is a 2 day park. Great entertainment put on at the park. Will be going back again

Where to stay in Salou

Salou, mostly known for family-oriented tourism, features a wide range of resorts and beachfront rentals along the Costa Dorada. Port Adventura, Salou's well-known adventure park, features four on-site hotels that offer all-inclusive vacation packages for families. For those seeking a more tranquil experience or to get away from larger crowds, there are several in-town accommodation options within close proximity to the main areas for dining and shopping. Staying along Llevant, the main beach, allows for easy access to the lively promenade and daytime activities. Salou's Old Town, only a short walk from the beach, is dotted with lovely architecture and locally-owned shops and tends to be less crowded than the beachfront areas.
