If you avoid the weekend then a day would be fine, it's still a little busy but very manageable, just make sure you get on Baco first as that thing always breaks down and gets a huge line.

I Love Donkeys!

Thanks, do do you think a day and a half or even 2 days would be better to do it comfortably?

Good evening all

Great site and looking forward to posting here in the future !;)

At last,The parts made by Proslide that have been in storage since 2008 will finally get used from the end of September this year as work will begin on expanding the Aquatic Water Park..

The golden question is...will it be the Worlds tallest water slide of 42m as previously planned back in 2008????

Here is a homemade video that I made a few days ago, featuring some slow motion shots in 1080p. (I recommend to watch it in youtube) ¡Enjoy!

Shambhala - Expedición al Himalaya (+ Slow Motion 1080p) - PortAventura Montaña Rusa 2012


YouTube Videolink


That video is fantastic. Very, very well done. One of the best videos I have seen like it in a LONG time.

May I ask what gear you used to shoot that?

Robb and Elissa really enjoyed the TPR Trip to Spain, and have said they would return in the future, maybe after another 1 or 2 coasters are built. I would not expect TPR to return to Spain in 2013 or 2014.

Thanks! I think that there are 3 new coasters from 2007...:

Tren de la Mina@ Parque de Atracciones de Madrid.
Shambhala@ PortAventura.
Muntanya Russa@ Tibidabo. [They've removed "Montaña Rusa"]

Well, thanks for your answer! =)

Sorry for the typical question, but how far is this resort from Barcelona?
14 Parks & 37 Coasters!

^About 70 miles away. Or 1 hour by car and over an hour by train.

It's really easy to get to the park, either by public transportation or by car.

"Down about two stone in weight since late June. I better fit in that f*cking rollercoaster!"

- The words of my friend who somehow heard about Shambhala's hatred for all those overweight :P


Has anyone been there recently? I'm quite looking forward to it, myself. Friend seems to be on a bit of a fitness craze at the moment (for those unaware, a friend of mine is a fairly big guy and I'm in charge of having booked a holiday for about a dozen of us to Salou/Port Aventura; then heard about the tight seats and became worried I'd inadvertently embarrass my friend).


How is the park in general? Does PA have security? I can't remember seeing a single Guard/Security/Police uniform in the park at all..?
