The Far West gives us the Stampida, not one but two coasters. This twin coaster see's you racing side by side red against blue on a traditional boneshaking wooden roller coaster. Some say the wooden coasters are the best, and give you that incredible feeling. The 1km wooden track of the Stampida will give you the ride of your life, feel the rumble, feel the Stampida.
The old silver mine in the land of Mexico is deserted, the miners have gone never to re-appear, dare you explore El Diablo and ride in an old mine cart over the creaking clattering rails, hurtle to the depths of the mine, twisting and turning. Hold on tight it is going to be fast and furious. What is hidden in the shafts of this old mine, if you enter to find out, will you be seen again?
Grand Canyon Rapids
The Grand Canyon Rapids in the Far West gives you a soaking ride on the white water, follow the rapids around the course crashing around the rocks and over the waterfalls. The rapids will carry you along through the canyons, keep an eye out for the sharp shooting snipers on the bridges armed with water guns trying to enusure you get that little bit more wetter. A good job there is the warm Cosata Dorada sunshine to dry you out again afterwards.
In Polynesia you will find the Tutuki Splash, ride in a barge into the depths of a volcanos crash, carried along on gushing volcanic lava. Brace yourself as the volcano spurts your barge out over the top and down the steep side of the volcano. Hold on tight as you cascade down and land with a tremendous splash. Another chance for another soaking at the PortAventura theme park.
In the land of China stands Fumanchu. There are carousels that we all know and love, but then there is Fumanchu which is like no other carousel. It is big, very big, let Fumanchu take you to new heights, gliding through the air getting higher and higher, whisked round and round, twisting and turning in you seat, until you feel you are flying.
