Much cheaper price than official park website, and some other sites. However, we went in high season, for Halloween weekend. On Saturday the park was full (about a 2 hour wait max per attraction) but we expected that. However on Sunday, it was really hellish. The queue far exceeded the entrance to the attractions so it was not a 2 hour wait but much more. The park does not indicate more than 2 hours of waiting for the attractions. Although there are many more. I strongly recommend avoiding this kind of period, even if the park was well decorated. In summary, a Saturday in a normally crowded park and Sunday in an overcrowded park where it is not possible to do anything unless you want to waste a morning or an afternoon for an attraction. Not to mention force one from Ferrari land where I have no words to describe the wait....

Great prices through GetYourGuide. Saved a good amount on gate prices. Having the tickets on your phone means no ticket queues. Portaventura was fabulously decorated for Christmas with loads of photo opportunities. It was busy but nothing like during summer months. Only 30 mins for Dragon Khan. Downside - the water rides- log flumes and Tutuki splash not open in winter but River Rapids were open. Great family day out

Professional and very friendly guide. The experience was so much fun — Highly recommend!

I love portaventura,it was really busy so paid €40 pp for a fast pass which is worth it

Great opportunity not to wait in the line but go directly into the park.
