COASTER NUTTERS NEED HELP PLEASE

Post by Neil Oake » Thu, 30 May 1996 04:00:00


Hi yall,

We've heard of a newish theme park near Barcelona, Spain. Can anyone
provide any info on exactly where it is, what is there, coaster reviews
etc. Even where to stay?

We've now exhausted the coasters of the UK and are branching out into
Europe as funds allow.

YEEE HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAHHHH!

Hope someone can help us. Thanks.

I don't know the details but it's Port Aventura and it's home of a huge
B&M EIGHT inversion coaster!

Port Aventura, Tarragona - just down the coast from Barcelona.  Features
Dragon Khan, 1995 B&M sit-down - 161 foot drop and eight inversions,
including 118-foot tall vertical loop!.  Top speed 68mph.  Hopefully
I'll be going there around 22nd June myself.. Yippee!

Barcelona itself also has two parks:

Tibidabo (smaller one, small Pinfari ride, Top Spin ride, others..)

Montjuic Parc d'Attractiones:
* Vekoma Boomerang
* Some strange V-shaped shuttle that keeps going back and forth until it
stops by gravity (like a cross between a shuttle and a pirate ship, I
suppose :-)
* Pinfari with no lap bars and some airtime

In the above I'm quoting (approximately!) Nick Hopwood in First Drop
magazine - hope he doesn't mind (Don't even know if he's on the net!)

HTH
