    I don't think COVID has hit PortAventura hard to be honest. Don't get me wrong, it's affected nearly every company in the world unless they make sanitiser, but definitely from a Theme Park perspective they've done pretty well.

    Their handling of COVID regulations has received a lot of praise and they've opened more hotels as the year has progressed where as other resorts have closed theirs and halloween season is returning as many other parks have cancelled their events.

    On the subject of new attractions, as many parks have cancelled some future attractions or postponed them, PortAventura have announced many new projects with the expansion of Hotel Colorado Creek, a new thill ride, the new additions above and now a planned fourth park for the future. I think out of all the parks I've read about it's one of the only one's ploughing though with a few minor set backs.

    PortAventura is lucky to be a park which not only attracts visitors from many countries, but also many visitors from Spain, which has meant it hasn't seen a massive loss in guest numbers such as Disneyland.

    Yes, Caribe Aquatic Park hasn't opened this year although I think that was mostly due to the fact it couldn't open until late July and it would close again in September anyway and opening hours have been reduced but it's still open longer than any other park in Europe so I think they've done pretty well on the whole.

    @Matt N that wasn't a direct ramble at you, I wanted to say most of it anyway. :D

    Here's a great little video from PASpace on Halloween '20, showing PortAventura Park in it's Birthday and Halloween best, shows with social distancing precautions with guests being shown to seats, scare mazes with Covid precautions and a peek at some Halloween sweet treats!

    Italian Nights - Ferrari Land
    From 7th November until 19th December, Italian Nights return every Friday from 6pm-11pm in Ferrari Land. Guests can expect Italian food, entertainment and rides in the dark including Europe's tallest and fastest rollercoaster. Free entry for guests of the PortAventura Hotels or an evening ticket for day visitors.

    Another leap forward for PortAventura this year after late openings were reduced to 8pm due to Covid. It's a sign that we could see late openings return for 2021.

    If the new park turns out to be good, we could even see no one being hit by a pigeon on opening day of their supposed new rollercoaster:D:p

    PortAventura is closed for 2 weeks, starting from today, due to new health measures in that area of Spain.
