My Trip advisor review for PortAventura Park:-
“Great Theme Park with some Fantastic Rides and Shows”
We went to Port Aventura with our sons. One is 8 and the other is 3. Both the boys and us had a great time! The queues weren't too long. The food was ok priced and the shows were very good!
A couple of things that weren't so great was some grumpy people that worked there. One woman in particular at the entrance was terrible. Also you are not allowed to bring in your own food. Lucky for us my husband went in a different entrance and didn't have his bag checked. I heard some Spanish people saying the food was for their baby so this may be a way around it if you have a young child with you. Otherwise hide your food well away ;-)Port Aventura is a large theme park just outside Salou laid out in five themed areas.The park offers more than 30 attractions, 100 daily live shows, 75 snackbars and restaurants, 28 stores with exclusive products and 10 game areas for the whole family. You really need to plan your way around to fit in all it has to offer.
Upon entering, the sight that greets your eyes is a vision straight from a fairy-tale: a huge river, bordered by rocks and thick, luxuriant vegetation which frames the whole Park, which then evolves into different themes the further you delve in to the park. There are Mediterranean, Polynesian, Chinese and Mexican themes all the way to the Wild West.
By plane: Port Aventura is just an hour from Barcelona airport and 15 minutes from Reus airport.
By car: From Barcelona, one hour by the AP7 Freeway (La Jonquera-Valencia). Take the direct exit to the park (exit 35). Alternatively, you can take highway N-340 (Barcelona-Valencia), N-420 (Tarragona-Teruel) and N-240 (Tarragona-Lleida).
