The Best Rides for Kids at PortAventura
Top 7 rides for kids!
While there are plenty of exhilarating coasters for grown-ups to enjoy, there are also lots of exciting rides for the little ones…

While PortAventura might be famous for its white-knuckle rides, there’s plenty of tamer rides that the kids will love, making this a great choice for a family day out. Just an hour outside of Barcelona, it’s worth making time to fit this amazing theme park into your holiday itinerary. If you want to enjoy a few days of fun, you can make the most of our current special offer and save 20% on PortAventura multiday tickets! To help you plan your visit, we’ve chosen 7 of the park’s best attractions for children…

 

Canoes:

 

PortAventura Rides

 

Canoes is a fun-filled ride that the whole family can enjoy together. This is like a tamer version of the park’s Silver River Flume ride, but is perfect for the little ones as there’s no big drop. Board a colourful canoe and sail into the depths of Polynesia’s tropical jungle. Glide along the rippling waters of the lakes and rivers, sheltered beneath tall palm trees, as you venture into this idyllic setting. You’ll feel like a true explorer!

 

Tea Cups:

 

PortAventura Rides

 

A classic ride you can’t miss! Everyone loves the tea cups and we’re sure even the adults will want to give this theme park favourite a try. This ride is suitably located in the middle of the China area of PortAventura. Traditionally, tea drinking is an important part of social gatherings in China, so PortAventura have reflected this in the décor of the tea cup ride. Sit inside a giant tea cup and start spinning. You’ll be able to control how fast you go by taking the wheel, so your speed is up to you.

 

Angkor:

You better take cover, as this ride will leave you soaking wet! Enter the temple and step aboard a boat before setting sail on an exciting adventure, where you must use a water gun to shoot any obstacles that get in your way. Glide through the jungle, before reaching a village where you’ll have to persuade (or force!) the inhabitants to let you pass. Make sure you’re prepared for the grand finale, as this is the part where you’re going to get a soaking and not just from the other boats. The people on the banks are armed with water guns too, making it impossible for you to hide!

 

Magic Fish:

 

PortAventura rides

 

SesamoAventura is an area of the park especially for children. If you hadn’t already guessed by the name, the area has been inspired by the world of Sesame Street and has some pretty famous inhabitants. Look out for Bert, Ernie and the rest of the gang as you explore this fascinating land. Every attraction here is suitable for children and it would be hard to choose a favourite, although we love the Magic Fish ride. Choose a colourful fish, jump aboard, and get ready to take on the waves! As you steer the wheel you’ll go faster and faster, skidding across the water and laughing along the way, without getting wet at all!

 

Tami Tami:

 

PortAventura rides

 

Another of our favourites in the SesamoAventura area is Tami Tami, a rollercoaster especially for the kids. This action-packed adventure lets them enjoy the exhilarating coaster experience on a smaller scale. Race around the track with your hands in the air on one of the park’s most entertaining children’s attractions. Adults can join in the fun too, but this is one that is sure to be a hit with the kids.

 

Armadillos:

 

PortAventura rides

 

Did you know that Armadillos originate from Mexico? Well if you head to the Mexico area of the park you’ll be able to get closer to the creatures on the Armadillos ride. Unfortunately, the little ones won’t be able to see any real armadillos, but they will be able to have lots of fun as they climb onto their backs and go around in circles. This is one of the park’s most popular children’s rides, so if you’re visiting with little ones, make sure this is on your list.

 

Buffalo Rodeo:

 

PortAventura rides

 

This ride will have your little ones whizzing round the Wild West on the back of a buffalo. As they discover the art of rodeo in an authentic gold mine, they must compete against their friends to be crowned the buffalo rodeo champion. The track has been specially designed for children, so they can enjoy a tamer version of buffalo-themed bumper cars that will have them giggling the whole way through.
