New season begins at Barcelona amusement park

0

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.

Visit New York for the Five-Boro Bike Tour

0

New York will become a hive of energy and activity at the beginning of May as it plays host to the Five-Boro Bike Tour, one of its most popular annual events.

Scheduled for May 3rd this year, the event will give people on New York tours the opportunity to travel 42 miles through the city using nothing but pedal power.

Some 30,000 people will hop on bikes to take part in the tour, making it the largest recreational cycling event in America.

The journey begins in Manhattan and heads north, passing through Central Park, Harlem, the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn, taking in some of New York’s most iconic sights along the way.

Registration is limited so people planning to take part will have to act fast, but those who do not participate can still gather at various locations to see the impressive sight of 30,000 cyclists rushing past.

The Five-Boro Bike Tour is organised by Bike New York, which will also arrange events in Harlem, Long Island and New Jersey later this year.
