Tibidabo: The Amusement Park In the Clouds
October 19, 2017 | Things to Do in Barcelona
Looking for a day trip the whole family will love? Hop aboard the tram on the Funicular de Tibidabo Railway and take a journey to Tibidabo Amusement Park, perched on the summit of Tibidabo mountain—the largest in the Serra de Collserola!
The tram is a ride in itself. As you scale the mountain, you’ll pass by lush greenery and a breathtaking panoramic view of the Barcelona skyline and sandy shores below. Upon entering the park, you’ll be greeted with a bevy of unique rides, most of which were built at the turn of the 20th century and remain fully intact.We especially love the Avió plane, a flight simulator crafted to replicate the first-ever aircraft to fly from Barcelona to Madrid in 1927. It’s powered by a self-functioning propeller and juts out on a crane high above the city.
The amusement park’s first ride, the Witch’s and Wizard’s Den, an aerial skyway that soars riders atop the summit of the mountain, is also a special treat. It was revised in 2016 to incorporate modern technology, including holograms, virtual environments, LED lighting, and rear-view projections.
For a more thrilling adventure, take a plunge on the Muntanya Russa Roller Coaster, which reaches speeds up to 50 miles-per-hour, zooming through mountainside treetops.
Other fun-packed attractions include a train ride with virtual reality glasses, a colorful ferris wheel, flume, carousel, swinging pirate ship, a dizzying wall of mirrors, and more.Equal parts history and amusement, there’s also an auto museum on site (Tibidabo's Automata Museum) that features more than 40 mechanical figures from the 19th-and-20th century.
