A whole world of fun and entertainment is once again on offer to people taking Barcelona tours following the reopening of the Tibidabo amusement park on February 28th for its 2009 season.
With the new season comes a brand new star attraction – a rollercoaster that offers impressive views over Barcelona as well as plenty of white-knuckle thrills.
The ride reaches a top speed of 80km per hour as it winds along a 718-metre track, climbing to a maximum height of 522 metres.
People looking for some slightly more distinguished entertainment can visit the amusement park from April to take advantage of Tibidabo Plus, a programme of events for older visitors including painting and scenic walks.
Youngsters will also be offered plenty of entertainment, including a series of educational activities designed by Lluis Ribas, who also works on the operations of the park’s automaton museum.
The Tibidabo amusement park occupies a picturesque location on a mountain of the same name and can be reached either by a funicular railway or by the Tibibus, which operates everyday from Placa de Catalunya.
Barcelona – Wonderful Gaudi architecture and a cosmopolitan atmosphere have made Barcelona Spain’s most popular city.
