Sagrada Familia Guided Tour: skip the line

As it is the highest point in the city, Tibidabo Amusement Park has exceptional views to offer. This park is ideal for visiting with the family or friends because you will always find the right attraction for everyone. The park offers a great variety of options for enjoyment, with attractions that combine quality, old-fashioned fun and uniqueness.

Tibidabo Amusement Park has much to offer, from a lively, thrill-filled visit to an exhibition of antique gems from the world of puppetry with the Herta Frankel collection, followed by a show with a demonstration of how the puppets work. Some of Tibidabo's mythical attractions include the Automata Museum, one of the most famous in the world; the Watchtower; the Plane; the Carousel; and endless attractions for children. It also hosts shows like the KrŁeger Hotel, a tunnel depicting all manner of phenomena from the history of horror films.

Tibidabo always has some novelty to offer, like the new four-dimensional cinema that allows you to enjoy a film with light, sound, air and water effects, giving you an exceptional view through special 3D glasses. It also offers the Pendulum, a unique attraction in Spain, where an articulated arm falls from a height of 38 metres and moves with a pendulum effect.

The history of this hundred year-old park, the oldest in Spain, goes back to 1899, when Salvador Andreu founded the Societat AnÚnima Tibidabo with the aim of opening a leisure centre on the mountain for the people of Barcelona. The Blue Tram (Tramvia Blau) and the funicular railway were inaugurated in 1901, and the first attractions came shortly afterwards. Some of these attractions have been conserved to this day, like the Castle of Terror and the Roller Coaster. As a curiosity, you can still find the famous Tibidabo Plane (l'Aviů) dating from 1928, a replica of the plane that made the first flight between Barcelona and Madrid.

The amusement park combines enjoyment, nature, spectacles, values and services, to the delight of any visitor.
