Nov-Jan?

Great theme park and we are going again in June, my 11 year old is charged as an adult!!

The 2 day ticket on that site is slightly cheaper than the 2 days for the price of 1 ticket!

Cynikill - seems to allow you book any date , i booked tickets for summer holidays in July .

Or stay in one of their hotels all inclusive, water park and theme park tickets included

I really enjoyed Portaventura for the rides and the wife for the various shows. Highly recommended.
Note to be careful on the booking dates as the waterpark next door only opened the day after I left Salou as I went too early in the season (May time).

I wouldn't waste your money on this park. It's pretty poor theming, based on woody woodpecker and Betty Boop! Very odd? Really old rides and not exactly a universal flagship. It feels to me like they havent touched it since the day it opened. Check the park map before you go to assure your getting good value as small kids rides are limited. Also, be careful when walking from the car park to the gate as its notorious for pick pocketing and robberies. In general, where this park is concerned, buyer beware. This price is all its really worth if the kids are really hassling you to go, so Hot price for tickets when considering the outrageous standard pricing. But in general, it's not the usual Universal standards.

With a review like that, it is doubtful whether you even went to Portaventura. It is one of the best parks in Europe!

^^ lol, okay. Well, don't say I didn't warn you!! It's nowhere near as good as some of the parks in Germany and each to their own with regard to theme park reviews. However, having been a regular theme park goer worldwide, including over 20 trips to Florida, I think I'm qualified to review portaventura.

Really. Clearly you haven't been on any of the rides, shambala is amazing

You don't need to warn me, I have already been 3 times with the 4th coming up in June. If you really think it is pretty poor and a waste of money then I think you are very much mistaken.

How about reviewing the rides and tell us, with your vast experience, why they are poor?

Great price and have been- it's pretty good, ignore the bad review !

The park is generally under invested, dirty and over crowded compared to many other parks throughout Europe. Even Alton towers and Thorpe Park compare more favourably with regard to age related themed areas and styles/ types of modern coasters etc, the new Atlantis ride opened in 2014 is pretty good by all accounts (which granted are reviews I've read,as I've not visited Salou since 2013) but again style wise even Atlantis is dated and based on the 2008 Shikra ride at Busch Gardens. Like I say, it's horses for courses, but as far as theme parks go, it's not one of the best. The ticket price above (although good compared to standard) speaks volumes about how good the park is. You get what you pay for.

So which Universal theme parks in Florida that you can get 2 days at for £33 are you comparing Portaventura to?

I am assuming you are comparing like for like not just saying you've been to Florida 20 times.

not quite sure where you went but it's not the same portaventura I went it's a great park and has some amazing breaking rides, it used to be operated by universal studio's but they sold in on to a a consortium, personally enjoyed this park more than euro disney, I would recommend getting the 3days/2 parks ticket basically you can have two days in the theme park and 1 day in the water park next door you pick the days you go but they must be redeemed with a certain number of days after 1st entry, buy in advance as alot cheaper than on gate or through holiday rep. only word of warning DONT go on a Spanish public holiday as the Spanish youth have no manners and do not understand the concept of queuing, got **** off with them barging past me and my 7yr old son that I decided to become a human barrier which worked a treat and got a few laughs from fellow brits in the queue.

DAMNOME

You're absolutely spot on, you can't technically get 2 days for £33 in the US, but you can get 14 days for £120 In most of the universal / Busch owned parks, which is far better value in all aspects. However, I'm not comparing portaventura to just the US based parks so that isn't my point. My point here is that generally the park is under invested, and of poor quality. The value here at £33 is good, and I voted accordingly, but as I first mentioned, check the park map to assure you will get value taking your kids ages into consideration, and beware of the dangerous surrounding areas. I personally don't like the place even compared to the uk big 3 parks. I would rather stay here and go to Thorpe Park for one day (using a 2 for 1 voucher) than visit portaventura again.

Lol, just to add, I'm still in two minds about visiting it for Ferrari world which is opening at the same site in 2016 though. I bet I end up going and eating my words. Which I have done on more than one occasion. Some long overdue investment may make me change my current opinion, but I bet the ticket price will ramp up again.

What are the good theme parks in Germany out of interest?

^^ For me Europa-Park and Heide Park are both well worth a visit.

NO, you're wrong.

NO, you're wrong.



I'm not wrong, the Olive Prtess is well known for its non factual information, there has not been a marriage to a 14 year old since Franco was in power..........of course in some areas they do seem to twist the rules but none are recorded.......I have lived in Spain and can assure you its fiction.

^^ For me Europa-Park and Heide Park are both well worth a visit.



Even for a 7 year old and a 4 year old?
And a 57 year old grandad who loves roller coasters but hates anything that just goes round in a circle. (waltzers etc)

You will be better off at Europa-park with kids that young as I seem to remember Heide being more on the extreme side, but probably best to check both park maps ahead of a visit to assure value.:)

Thanks for that. You know something?
As well as having decent rides, for all age ranges ie 4 to 57 its the attitude of the staff that make or break a good day out for me.
If the staff are prepared to engage with my grandchildren, even with daft stuff like face painting or balloon modelling, or even just chatting to them whilst in a queue for a ride, then that makes all the difference.

Couldn't agree more, in the UK there are some lovely parks like Gullivers Kingdom in Matlock Bath (which is also a beautiful location) that do just that. Sadly, a lot of the bigger parks forget about the little ones in favour of scaring the life out of the 11 years and above age group.

On the few occasions we visited Portaventura, our kids may have been too young, and therefore we may have left with a negative opinion. So you're absolutely right. It's horses for courses. Now that our children are both teenagers they obviously want the scary stuff and universal studios and Thorpe Park are their current favs, however for me nothing beats Disney, but I guess that's more for the memories of the magic than anything else.

Can't afford Disney in USA but my wife and I have been to Disney in Paris. We actually did that one without any kids at all so I have no idea if the staff there interact with kids or not?

We have been to Gullivers world in Warrington, every year for the last three years, at Christmas time. What a good day out, at a very reasonable cost!
You get a panto whilst eating chips and other bits. You also get a trip on the train to see Santa at his grotto, which again, is very good indeed. The staff are great with my grandchildren, although we have noticed that the children's gifts have gradually got a bit worse every year.
But, the day out itself is amazing.

Was at PortAventura 2 years ago and it was brilliant! Don't have much to compare it too but it was very clean, well presented and had some brilliant rides including Shambala and Furious Baco.

I was considering Legoland windsor for my daughter (5yo) this summer. Is there a better park in the UK with regards to catering for the younger/smaller children?
