Free Time

Things to do during your free time are a visit to Port Aventura Theme Park or Waterpark and Camp Nou Experience. Here’s what you can expect at each attraction…

Port Aventura Theme Park. Experience a world of adventure visiting exotic places such as China, Polynesia, Far West, México, Mediterrània and SésamoAventura, the family area inspired by the world of Sesame Street. Discover full-on 135km/h adrenaline coasters, gentle jungle swings for the kids and colourful shows from precise acrobatics to card tricks and magicians.

Test your nerves on the 8-loop Dragon Khan which reaches speeds of over 70mph, whilst Hurakan Condor stands at over 100 metres tall and lifts its riders slowly to the top before plunging to the ground in freefall!

The terrifying Furius Baco ride accelerates from 0 to 80 mph in less than 3 seconds, twisting through trenches and tunnels over the spectacular Port Aventura Lake! Waterfalls of a miniature to a grand scale carve the landscape through Polynesia making room for the likes of Tutuki Splash, a saturating volcanic river splash ride.

Shambhala is a rollercoaster of giant proportions! A 76 metres high, it’s the tallest and fastest rollercoaster in Europe, reaching speeds of 80 mph as you challenge the longest drop in Europe. Shambhala will have all the ingredients of a fantastic and memorable adventure: scaling the highest summits, descending into abseil chasms and journeying through dark tunnels and mountain lakes, all on a ride featuring an outline reminiscent of a real mountain range. Enter Angkor, the fantastic Lost Kingdom of Cambodia for an exciting interactive family river adventure. Board your boat at the temple and embark on a watery journey through the jungle, using your water cannon to shoot at the pythons, monkeys and tigers found in the temple, so that your boat can freely pass through. As you enter a town you must hit the targets so the locals will let you carry on your way. Finally, the naval battle awaits … Who will win?

Port Aventura Water Park. At the Caribbean themed Port Aventura Caribe Water Park, kick back on the lazy river in an oversized rubber ring or relax in the shade of the palm trees.

If you’ve still got energy to burn then there’s more than enough to quench your desire in the shape of high speed water slides and vast wave pools. Young children also have their own swimming area, with water jets and Baby Bungee.

Challenge the barracudas and demonstrate who is the bravest Pirate of the Caribbean on these exciting slides; you will spin without stopping along the curves of this hilarious attraction. Enjoy an adventurous voyage on El Rio Loco, that circles the park on its 1500 metre route or maybe test your rafting skills on El Torrente.

Reserved only for the most daring of the family, El Torrente is one of the most enjoyable attractions at the Water Park.

The chaotic El Tifón slides will lead you into a Caribbean storm with the strength of the hurricane and the vastness of the Atlantic Oceanit will wrap you in a refreshing and fun adventure through its dizzying declines.

Climb the highest tower of The Mambo and Limbo and slide down its dramatic slides full of dips, making an incredible splash at the end! Other highlights include a 6-lane racer slide where adults and children can compete to see who can get down the fastest, a lazy river and two new swimming pools a Sesame Street pirate ship adventure for the kids and a relaxing Caribbean-themed pool for the grown-ups!
