The Tibidabo Amusement Park
The Tibidabo Amusement Park has stood for more than a century on Barcelona’s highest point. It exists in the memories of generations of the people of Barcelona, and continues to be a place for fun, surprises and entertainments, with rides and attractions for young and old, for the wary and most daring.
We can find the Parc del Tibidabo in the Sarrià Sant Gervasi district. This landmark attraction enjoys a prime location which boasts views of the whole of Barcelona from the mountains to the sea. Spectacular views which form the backdrop to a modern amusement park which retains its much-loved character. The Tibidabo Amusement Park combines vintage rides from the early days and other high-tech attractions which have been added to cater to the most recent trends. Some of the oldest rides in the park include the Talaia, which dates from 1921 and rises up slowly and gently 50 metres above the plaza below, the Avió, or plane, which is the world’s first flight simulator, and the haunted castle, the Castell Misteriós. The most intrepid visitors looking for adrenalin-fuelled thrills and spills can test their nerve on the head-spinning Hurakan, with its sudden plunges and 360º turns.
The church of the Sagrat Cor stands in the Plaça del Tibidabo. It was designed by the architect Enric Sagnier and is crowned by a gilded statue of Christ, his arms outstretched towards the city spreading beneath.
The Tibidabo Amusement Park is the ideal place to spend an unforgettable day out with the family or friends, in a setting with panoramic views of Barcelona where fun is guaranteed.
With its 100 year old the Tibidabo Amusement Park is one of the oldest in the world, but one that never stands still. Tibidabo is one of the best sites in Barcelona.
There are 25 rides to discover for all ages, great shows and street theatre, which makes walking around the park a fun attraction in itself.
What’s more, the park also has a wide range of facilities for visitors including restaurants, many with amazing views, picnic areas and whole host of services to make sure your day at the park is great from beginning to end.
Check out the Tibidabo Sky Walk, an area, which at 500 metres, boasts the best views of Barcelona. This is where you’ll find the best known favourite attractions such as the Automaton Museum as well as rides for all the family. This was the place that Woody Allen chose to film the Oscar winning film Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Access to all the lookout points here and the walks through the wood are free and its timetable is the same as Tibidabo Sky Walk. All information on the Tibidabo Amusement Park webpage.
