News & Rumors





Park News - (5/29/22) PortAventura has now expanded beyond the park/resorts traditional border with the purchase of the Mercure Atenea Aventurea hotel in Vila-seca, said to be just under two kilometers outside the attraction. According to the report, PortAventura is also said to be in purchase discussions with other hotels in the area to add onto the resort’s offerings.










icon_STOP2023 - Uncharted: The Enigma of Penitence - (5/17/2023) PortAventura has released a few preview videos for their new Uncharted dark ride / roller coaster adventure opening June 17th. The first video below is a promotional ad showcasing the ride and naming it, Uncharted: The Enigma of Penitence. Below that you’ll see a construction diary video that actually shows off the inside of the attraction building with the coaster system even making a brief appearance taking a test run. (Note: This second video is in Spanish,  but there are English subtitles available.)
    For the most part, we’re seeing a whole lot of roller coaster track woven tightly inside a dark enclosed building, and not a lot of scenery. While I’m sure part of the ride will be themed, it looks like for the most part, a large section of the coaster will include a wild ride in the dark, not unlike Universal’s Revenge of the Mummy attraction. The coaster itself, from Intamin, will feature launches and a large single-car train, able to hold 12 riders in three rows of 4-seats.
    And one more video below the rest is a previous construction diary video that shows off more views of the coaster layout inside the building and how the themed exterior is being attached to the outside of the attraction.

    (12/4/2022) PortAventura has confirmed that their new 2023 attraction will be themed to the Sony film and video game series, Uncharted. The indoor attraction has been described as a dark ride / roller coaster that will allow guests to step into the world of Uncharted and “go on their own white-knuckle, treasure-hunting race”.
    The coaster has been described as being 39 feet tall and feature a 700m (2298ft) track length with 5 launches, inside a massive 51,000 sqft enclosed space. The new attraction will be provided by Intamin and Sally Dark Rides and feature a themed pre-show to set up the experience.

    (11/15/22) Is the new PortAventura an indoor roller coaster? It just might be, as a reader spotted what looks like some roller coaster style supports and a few jet black track pieces in a fenced off parking lot behind the new building in the Far West section of the park.
    (10/6/22) PortAventura has confirmed that they are working on a brand new ride to open for the 2023 season, to be located in the ‘Far West’ section of the park. While they aren’t ready to reveal any details just yet, Screamscape has been sent pictures of a large new building currently under construction at the park. While it is really hard to tell much at this point, it does seem that this will be some kind of indoor attraction.
    Anyone know more?


???? - LaLiga Theme Park - (9/15/20) PortAventura has announced plans to spend €150 million to build a new mini theme park at the Resort that will be themed around the Futbol team league, LaLiga. The first phase will see a themed restaurant added along with shops and an experienced tied to a mobile app. Phase 2 will add a Laliga themed attraction, and the final third phase will be to open a LaLiga theme park within the PortAventura resort. I’m guessing that the addition of another mini-park experience will be similar in concept to the addition of Ferrari Land mini park in 2017.
    They hope to have the first phase complete in time for the 2021/2022 season. You can find some concept art for the projects posted over at The Coaster Kings.
