Long lazy days sunning yourself on the glorious beaches of the Costa Dorada are what we all look forward to on our sun holidays. When you are ready for a fun day away from the sea then a Salou theme park might be just the diversion you are searching for.
The good news is that Salou has not just one but two entertainment parks as well as two waterparks, all within easy reach of the resort. The local Plana Bus goes to all the parks and is an inexpensive way to travel. If you are planning on going in a group then buying the T10 card which covers 10 fares on the local bus will reduce the overall cost.
PortAventura World and Ferrari Land
Two of the most famous Salou theme park is PortAventura World and Ferrari Land.
Themed as 6 different regions of the world and opened year round, the PortAventura Park has something for every
age. Shambala, the 3rd biggest steel roller-coaster in Europe, is great for adrenaline junkies, Sesamo Aventura, styled on Sesame Street, will suit the younger holidaymakers, and Wild West shootout and Bubble Show are great for all the family. Don’t miss the spectacular fireworks display that closes the park every evening.
Their second park is Ferrari Land which is uniquely themed on the famous Ferrari Italian luxury sports car brand.
Get the full Ferrari experience with pit stop challenges and the Ferrari gallery. Of course no trip to Ferrari land is complete without a ride on the 112 meters high, 0 to 180km/h in 5 seconds Red Force, the highest and faster vertical accelerator in Europe.
