  • This Park is a real past. We were a weekend in late July for what the expectations were that it was packed of people and we could not see even half. It is true that there were enough people but not overdone. Even so, we chose the option of purchasing the quick pass to mount in everything without problems. I have to say that I am a fan of this type of parks and undoubtedly this is the best (of Spain) in which I have been. It is great, the atmosphere is super nice, the attractions are spectacular (up to some moderate seemed us the cane). Incredible furious baco, stampida, dragon khan and Shambhala. I can't wait to go back! The food is very bad as in any Park of this type... we ate in a bar in the area from China and not anything we liked the menu. It has very large stores and very cool with a lot of things (and prices soaring as in all of these sites). Would put you a little more than shadow because ojuuu that heat pass! Although solved mounting on the water attractions that go well refrescadito. Separate thing was FerrariLand... we bought the combined entrance since cars and F1 like a lot and had high expectations in this annex to the Park. When we arrived there we found an empty Park people, with few attractions, some of them are paid to part as the Simulator,... only assemble in an attraction. The very expensive store, of look at me and not touch me. Very nice decorated, and the atmosphere has a part that recreates Rome and another where you can change to a Ferrari wheel and take the photo of rigor. There were several types of exposed ferraris. And little else. It is a small and without much grace Park, I don't think it again.

  • Disorganization complete endless waiting and does not respect the priority card handicapping just in order to sell very expensive passes. I won't hear of this park.

  • 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
