Maybe it was just because it wasn't peak season, but I was able to get a good rate on one of their resort hotels through the Roulette program. The day before my visit, I was randomly given a room at one of their hotels. They all looked fantastic. And as an added plus, it included park tickets.

Do you get Ferrari Land tickets as well or do you have to pay a separate fee like you do normally?


60 euros 2 days (portaventura + ferrari land)

portaventura hotel was a good option if we were 4 days to the park however we only go 2 days but we want to stay 3 nights .. the 1st and last day is to meet barcelona and salou

tickets - 60€ x 4 = 240€
hotel portaventura (with tickets) - 624€

I think we get accommodation for 4 people for less than 384 € ...

Hey, everyone. I'll be in Barcelona for a few days the first week of June, I decided to take day out and see PortAventura. I've only ever heard good things about this park, so I don't want to miss it. Plus, a place that combines two of my favorite things, roller coasters and Ferrari, I'll be there.

Since I don't know if I'll ever get the chance to go back, I was looking in to their express pass system. More than likely, I'll be going to during the week, but don't know what crowds usually look like around that time.

Since I'll only have a day, and I'm a first time visitor, I was just going to see if anyone had any advice or "plan of attack" for this park. Much appreciate, and thanks in advance!

Buy the most expensive fast pass and it's free of choice after that. I have been there 3 times in different times of the season and never regret the fast pass payment

When I was there last year it was very busy at both parks - queues of 60+ minutes were no exception. I had the Express Pass (which is only 50 euros) that gave me unlimited access to all of their major attractions, except for Hurakan Condor. I was able to ride everything multiple times without ever waiting more than 20 minutes. Also, operations aren't the best out there. So yes, get the Express Pass. You won't regret it.

It was really busy when I went and the express pass was fantastic. It's good for the price and it didn't seem like too many people bought it.

Because the express pass is relatively cheap, there are a lot of people that buy it. They are limited, though. If I remember correctly, they were all sold out 2 hours after opening. Anyway, the average wait time for the Express Pass queue (also for the Premium Gold) was around 20 minutes for Dragon Khan and Furius Baco, around 15 minutes for Stampida and around 10 minutes for Shambhala and Diablo - Tren de la Mina. All the other rides that are included with the Express Pass were a walk-on. But remember, when I visited the park was packed - 120+ minutes for Shambhala, Dragon Khan and Furius Baco all day.

How are crowds during the first week of June? I've booked a Disney Cruise for June 8th 2019 and Port Aventura is now a sure thing for my Euro trip. Too many nice Homeaway choices to be had to stay on property though.
