How much time do you recommend spending at Tibidabo? I only have about 3 hours, do you think it's worth going there just to buy the panoramic ticket?

I’ll be at the park on the 6th, so I’m appreciating all the information! Barcelona is the last city on our two week European trip. I’m excited!

I think that sounds like a good plan, the only really good ride you will miss out on is Muntanya Russa which is a really fun (but short) Vekoma coaster with amazing views. Three hours should be just about the right amount of time to do the rides, maybe get some churros and enjoy the view :)

The Panorama ticket is for the highest level of the park which has the best views and includes Avió (the plane ride) and Talaia (an observation ride) which are both really old and historical. It is also worth doing L'Embruixabruixes. Hopefully you will have a clear day and can enjoy the views. Avió, the plane ride, is very low capacity so even a short queue will move very very slowly but it is worth doing it for the novelty factor as it is totally unique.

Barcelona will likely kick off a near month for us. Hopefully Norwegian starts Madid or Barcelona from Denver as they have stated that they may. Southwest via Den from Tulsa and Norwegian across the pond. If not, I'll likely fly out of Memphis using points on United

My must do's are Port Aventura, Europa, Phantasialand, Efteling and Puy du Fou. I'd like to get some others in like Expedition Gee Force but we'll see. If Norwegian starts Madrid instead of Barcelona, I may include Parque Warner. I'm hoping the Cinecetta Park I Rome is still alive and kicking. Garda land would be only other in Italy I may attempt though Mirabilandia seems more attractive to me. Our plan after the Cruise is Rome-Florence-Venice - Paris- Normandy- Nantes /Puy du Fou, Strasbourg/Europa, Rothenberg, Cologne/Phantasialand, Effteling, Amsterdamn, Copenhagen/Tivoli, London and possibly Alton Park and fly home from either Manchester or go on to Dublin and fly back from there

I'm well aware I'll be passing a ton of parks I'd love to go to but......time and money. This is being financed from saving up over 600k in Chase UR points. If by chance In can get in Three or four smaller parks like Holiday, The Walibi parks, Tover, Movie Park, eCT I will. I'm very interested in the season pass perks that include multiple parks. The wife demands over half the teip by cultural and history focused vs a coasterthon. :cry:

Then we will stock pile points for a 2021 or 2022 Asia trip, Tokyo to Osaka, Bejing to Xi'an to Chengdu to Shainghai. I hope to time it with the new things at Tokyo Disney and Universal opening in Beijing.
Between those will be a California and Hawaii trip and a bunch of weekend getaways here and there.

We are liking this no mortgage thing, we are giving the kids a taste of the world and then their out and Momma and I are globetrotting,

We're going from Tulsa to LAX, LAX to London. We'll be going through London, Paris, Rome, and Barcelona all with Chase UR! It's a final trip for us before we start to consider kids! My wife likes coasters and theme parks, but I had to convince her that we needed to do one park while we were abroad! Your trip sounds like a blast, if you get to PortAventura before I do, share the wealth of knowledge! Enjoy!

A hint with chase UR points, while they don't show up on their travel portal, you can call and book Norwegian with points. I can get usually get their Premium Economy for 40,000 one way compared to United(for example) bare min, economy for 30,000 and the 30,000 is limited. The wife and I can fly in the nearly lie flats with Norweigian and the kids can tough it in economy seating thats equal to any legacy product for 15,000 each.

United will give you a leg in Europe for free when booking the going and coming with points. American, I rarely try with their limited availibility.

I have an overweight friend, will it be a problem for him to ride some attraction?

Last year at Warner Park he can barely mount the drop tower..

PortAventura invests 40 million euros in new attraction and hotel

220518waie.jpg


The Spanish theme park resort PortAventura World will expand. 40 million euros is invested in a new attraction and a new hotel. The new attraction - a dark ride in the Sesame Street themde area - must be finished next year.

Details about the addition are not yet known. Director Fernando Aldecoa speaks of "an attraction for the whole family, with the familiar characters from Sesame Street". It is an investment of 15 million euros. Children's area Sésamo Aventura opened in 2011.

In addition, 25 million euros are spent in a 150-room hotel, located near the Far West part. There are already two hotels there: Hotel Gold River and Hotel Mansión de Lucy. The resort will soon have six hotels with a total of 2250 rooms.

PortAventura World consists of PortAventura Park, Ferrari Land and a water park. Last year, the three parks together attracted a total of 4.7 million visitors. A new family coaster opened last week in Ferrari Land.
