    It is difficult to get to with public transport, as the metro line to the park was mothballed around a decade ago due to low attendance/use.

    If I recall from my visit some years back, you take a metro to Pinto and then a shuttle bus runs to the park, infrequently. We took a taxi back to central Madrid for ease, as it was late and there was no bus at that time.

    The park is a moderate size, easily do-able in 1 day.

    Sanbrooke from Theme Park Worldwide has a video which shows you how to get there. I

    As long as you time things well, it's no harder getting to via public transport than Thorpe...

    Train to Pinto, then bus to park... Times are all listed on respective websites...

    Exciting news! It would appear that Parque Warner may be getting a new thrill coaster in the near future, as markers have now appeared spanning a large area within the DC Comics portion of the park. Currently, the rumour mill suggests:
    • Intamin Blitz Coaster similar to Taron.
    • Will feature a pre-show.
    • Originally intended to open in 2022, but now delayed to 2023, presumably due to the pandemic.
    • Track is already being fabricated.
    Source for this info: https://lamardeparques.es/foro/viewtopic.php?f=30387&t=66921&start=225

    Exciting times are ahead for Parque Warner Madrid by the sounds of things! An Intamin Blitz should be a phenomenal addition to complement their already pretty strong-looking coaster selection!

    It's a really nice park so nice to see it's potentially getting a new ride.

    Gives them a few years to try and get the queue jumping under control as well.

    Are there ever any queues there for the locals to jump?

    Definitely a park I'd like to return to. Maybe they could burn Coaster Express down as well?

    A new coaster would be a very welcome surprise for Parque Warner. I really enjoyed the time that I spent in the park, but a lack of recent new additions means that it often goes very much under the radar. However any park with a Batman clone, a good B&M Floorless and a GIB is a park worth visiting!

    Such a great park, I haven't visited often enough to be troubled by the lack of additions.

    When we visited late last year, it did feel like it needed a bit of a kick, a lot of it feels like it's been sat their largely untouched, cracking in the sunshine. They've had a number of challenges over its fairly short existence. Still crazy to think they built a railway to the park, only for that to be 'SBNO' after such a short period of time.

    Suspect this could be going where the former simulator ride building is currently? Not a huge site, though.

    Never had any desire to visit this park tbh but will be keeping an eye on this development. A DC themed Taron type ride had a lot of potential.

    I was meant to visit the park in June and while this will won't justify a 3 year delay, it's brilliant to see them get a new investment! Should fit it snuggly with the B&Ms.

    It is a good park this - but as Rick says, it feels like it opened all those years back and has just sat there decaying very slowly.

    Investment in a coaster? About bleedin' time.
