The following rides are found in the 'Far West' are of the Port Aventura theme park.
Stampida is the only double tracked wooden roller coaster of its kind. Judging by the screams that were coming from the people riding it, I would say it is a pretty thrilling ride. It is set amongst a green area of trees and plants and has some adrenaline inducing drops and twists.
Penitence Station is a train station where you can catch a train that will run you across the Mediterranean sector of the park. This is a handy way to take in the whole of Port Aventura without having to be on your feet all day.
The Grand Canyon Rapids more or less guarantee that you're going to get wet! There are big circular rubber-ring like boats that hold about 8 people. Once you've climbed in, you're at the mercy of the river. I don't think I saw anyone getting off the ride dry. If the waterfalls don't get you, there are people standing on bridges as you got under, ready with water pistols.
Hurakan Condor is one of the main attractions at Port Aventura. You can see it from miles away when you are approaching - it appears like a slim tower and reaches up to 328 feet high. It has a vertical track and the people who want to experience the ride have to sit in a car that climbs all the way up to the top of the track. After a few moments pause, the car plummets 282 feet in a free fall. You reach 70 mph. I didn't see one person do it without screaming at the top of their lungs!
El Diablo Tren De La Mina (Miners Train). is essentially a rollercoaster that travels really fast along tracks that twist and turn all over the place. You'll have to hold onto your seat.
Entering the zone of China you'll find the following ride and more.
Dragon Khan is the only roller coaster in the world with 8 loops. It is immense in size and extremely fast. You'll reach a speed of 60 mph while being thrown upside down and it's so fast I noticed that only 2 or 3 people manages to wave their hands in the air. The rest were clinging on and screaming - even the men!
In Polynesia you'll find tropical trees and plants and this ride amongst others:
Tutuki Splash is a log flume that has some stomach churning drops that result in so much water being sprayed up, that everyone gets wet. Each 'boat' holds about 9 people, which is more than a standard log flume and so the extra weight means you travel downhill faster.
The Mediterranean zone is the first point where you'll enter the park. There are lots of shops and restaurants here, and you can catch a boat or a train to carry you to other parts of the park.
There is a huge variety of Port Aventura Theme Park rides. There are plenty of rides for children and adults. You'll also find transport within the park to take you from one area to another.
