    Callaghan's breakfast is probably the best food on resort, even if some of the items were lukewarm (which is par for the course at PA). I wouldn't have high hopes for any meal past that to be good, however.

    The real question is as much like the vast majority of other restaurants split across the two parks and the resort hotels, will the new restaurant feel like a glammed up school dining hall experience...

    Additional evening entertainment will surface in the form of 'Restaurant Reservation Roulette'. Will the restaurant you have a reservation for be open or closed? Buffet or a la carte? Will your hot food be cold or served to the correct temperature? Who knows?!

    And will they give you the bill almost as soon as you've sat down, thereby not allowing you to have any drinks other than water...?

    Slightly late but here's the new TV advert for the new SesamoAventura dark ride now known as 'Street Mission'. Guests will board Sesame Street taxis for a 4D interactive secret mission to help Coco (Grovner).The ride opens with PortAventura Park and Ferrari Land on Saturday!

    Buenas Noches! Street Mission opened today at PortAventura Park after a inauguration ceremony. The attraction appears to be getting rave reviews saying it includes many animatronics, interactive features and physical theming. I haven't watched a POV as I want my first ride to be some what of a surprise but apparently the story line of the attraction is that you put on 3D glasses and board a Sesame Street Taxi (trackless ride vehicle) to help Coco solve a secret mission by collecting clues. To collect clues you use your laser pen to shoot at the Cookie Monsters cookies dotted around the attraction, as you shoot at the cookies they break away to sometimes reveal a clue behind them. As I said before the ride is a combination of a pre-show, trackless ride system, animatronics, interactive game, physical sets and wrap around screens.

    As well as the ride, SesamoAventura Station has also been modified to make way for a new entrance to the attraction, and the facade of the show building now serves as very impressive backdrop to the station as it's disguised as Sesame Street itself, from what I've seen I'm very impressed!

    "Can You Tell Me How to Get to Sesame Street?

    This looks great! Was really impressed with the sesame street area when I visited a few years ago and this looks to compliment it perfectly.

    And judging by a photo I saw earlier it’s one giant indoor PA cattle pen!

    I wouldn't expect anything less! A good build quality test on that theming wouldn't go amiss either...!

    To be fair though, this looks like a great addition for PA.

    I'm honestly delighted that Spain has a new and very lovely looking dark ride. It's nearly a good enough reason to return to PortAventura WORLD.

    I know this is probably random but I’m real curious as to what the actual restrictions are on Shambhala. As in how many clicks or max waist/thigh size?

    It's a very tight squeeze compared to other B&M Hypers. I'm not huge but have pretty big thighs and always need a fairly big push from the staff to lock it in.

    Like most things at PA it looks very nice, will be interesting to see how it feels with a good old fashioned 'build quality' test.

    Also no mention of any sort of restaurant or bar. Issss closed. Isssss buffet.

    Looks very nice indeed. Might be tempted to book a cheeky trip later in the year.
