Parc d'atraccions Tibidabo

General Information

The Parc d’Atraccions Tibidabo (Tibidabo Amusement Park) is a small amusement park situated on a mountain near Barcelona. The park provides different recreating facilities which are exciting but a bit out-of-date. It is almost one hundred years old and is an important part of the city’s tradition. The park is managed by the Municipality of Barcelona.

On the top of the mountain one can admire Barcelona and the sea from a bird’s-eye view and visit a nice Gothic church, namely the Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (Temple Expiatori del Sagrat Cor). During summers it is possible to rent a bicycle and take a tour on the hill (for additional information – Attractions and Tours near Tibidabo Amusement Park and Attractions and Tours in Barcelona).

In the park one can find various attractions such as a roller coaster and typical facilities from the first half of the 20th century. Additionally, one can watch a 3D movie in the cinema of the park, participate in interesting shows organised mainly for children (for additional information – Kids and Families in Parc d’atraccions Tibidabo and Kids and Families in Barcelona) or get a meal at one of the fast-food stands. The ticket includes almost all facilities available in the park, exception are installations and the small dining room- that charges an extra fee.

Arriving to Parc d'atraccions Tibidabo

While arriving to the park one can choose between several options.

The funicular – arriving with the funicular (FV) to the park is not an easy task, and definitely not an affordable one, but it sure is a lot more adventures. In order to get to the actual funicular station, you will need to take a train (from Plaça Catalunya – ESS1 or S2), and after you get off the funicular there is one more bus (111) to the actual park.

Another option, is to take a direct bus from Plaça Catalunya, Bus T2A, perfect for the ones staying in the surroundings of Plaça Catalunya (for additional information – Hotels near Plaça Catalunya).

The third option is to take advantage of the free shuttle the park is running, it leaves every 30 minutes on every day that the amusement park is open. The location of the station is quite far from the center, and most tourists would probably need to transport themselves to this point. You can reach the station by metro L3 (green) and L5 (blue), or by bus no. 19, 27, 60, 76, 119, 185, B19, H4, N4, V15. This option is great for the ones traveling by car, since there is a reasonable priced parking lot near the station (traveling with a car all the way to the park in not recommended since the parking fees are high and the road is a bit complicated). (for additional information – Car Rental in Barcelona and Car Rental in Spain).

Location of the station – Paseo de la Vall d’Hebron, 138-176, just in front of the Vall d’Hebron hospital complex. This is also a great options for the ones who purchased Barcelona Card – free transportation inside Barcelona combined with the free shuttle – makes the entire ride completely free (for additional information – Barcelona for Free).
