Splashdown looks a bit short IMO.

Lovely station themeing.

Kinda remins me of the pictures of The Swarm taken behind the trees swooping round the inclined loop when it was testing.

Looks like the 'Dum Dum' character who 'wants gum gum' in Night of the Museum.

The size of that turnaround :o

TRIM. Let the complaining and comments that the ride is now ruined start here...

Posted Image

I'm sure pictures cannot do this view in real life justice.

Lovley turn around/station here...

And last but not least, some lovely lift hill porn.

Port Aventura it's a good theme park, didn't really think much of it when I went back in 2007, its very slow moving, constantly packed (like playing a game of Theme Park Sardines). The main thing I liked about it was the fact that Woody the Woodpecker is their mascot. The rides were alright Dragon Khan is the best the Furious Baco the second. but over all meh.

^ But the long hours and relaxed atmosphere make PA. It's a park you need to do over several days, not just rush around. In it's defense, I've NEVER seen queues as long as those in the UK (I've visited 2006, 2007, 2009, 2011). It's far better themed than anything we have, and boasts a better selection of re-rideable coasters. Oh, and has a firework disply that lasts 20 minutes every night from June to Septemeber and boasts 10am - midnight hours throughout this period. Where 'meh' comes in, is beyond me, but what can I say, I'm probably the forum's biggest PA fanboy, so, hey hum.

But in Wolf's opinion this is untrue.

Wouldn't be surprising, Baco has it! In fact maybe it has been taken from Baco, because those cameras produced jolty awful video footage thanks to the ride itself!
