^I am really happy that you enjoyed your stay at the park. Even though the park has milions of thousands of bad things (especially in operations), I'm glad that you could enjoy your stay! Next time send me a PM and I will show you even more things that you don't even expect! ;)

Does anyone have any food recommendations at the park? Some of the restaurants look quite nice but I'm not sure if there are any that are particularly well regarded. I haven't been impressed by the hotel buffet but Pit Stop at Ferrari Land had really good camilones.

Howdy folks.


Can I ask you guys - you know the way Shambhala has no time for you if you're carrying some extra weight in your legs (and you get kicked off), but every other coaster seems fine?

What category does the new Ferrari coaster fall into? Is it like Shambhala in that you'll have to do the embarrassing walk off if you're a bit big? Or is it like Baco, Khan, etc. where it doesn't really matter?

The killer on most Intamins is the seat belt, but Red Force doesn't have seat belts so that's definitely a good sign for you. I didn't notice anyone getting the walk of shame on Red Force during my two days there, but I saw 2-3 get it at Shambhala.

I too witnissed a few different people take the walk on Shambhala but none on Red Force. I think if you're close to fitting on a B&M hyper then you won't have any problem on Red Force.

It's looking a lot like this was a bad year to open a new theme park in Catalonia. Anyone know how or if the weekend's events changed the number of people coming in the gate?

I'm keeping a close eye on the situation and see how it develops since I plan to go to Spain (including Madrid parks and PA) next year. I have a Netherlands trip ready as a backup in case things escalate.

I'm planning a trip at the beginning of next September (when it is expected to be still open till midnight). What are the expected waiting times for the main rides? Would an Express pass be of any benefit? I can purchase a Premium Gold pass for the full duration of the stay (two days) for €50.

I would definitely recommend getting fast track. Operations are awful, especially if you don't get fast track. Probably expect shambhala and furious backs queues to be around 1.5 hours. The other major coasters will have queues of probably 30 mins, except Dragon Khan which I would expect to be around an hour.
