More theming with random pink pig. We saw these pigs all over the park. Does anyone know who sponsors them, or what they represent?


SEAT is a Spanish Car Company. (Pronounced Say-att) and are very popular in Europe. The most popular model being the "Ibiza", which is often a 'first-car' for drivers who've just passed their test.

Im not sure what the pig is all about, although i think it may be their trademark mascot.

My guess is the Pigs are part of the advertising of the new Altea XL Model, and yes the Ibiza is a great little car...

Great TR, Dragon Khan could certainly do with a new coat of paint. Tibidabo just looks insane, but the views do look breathtaking.

Thanks to everyone for the comments!! :oops:

I'm only posting about 1/4 of the pics that I actually took.

I'll be starting up a new thread of all the panoramic shots I took after I'm done with these. (That's 2,3,4 or 5 pics stitched together.)

Hopefully that will be soon!

Day 8

We start the day with breakfast someplace within our Westin resort city. We load our bags on the bus and we're off to Terra Mitica, a good 4 minute drive.

We had ERT on the Huss frisbee (instead if Inferno. Intamin. Enough said.), Magnus Colossus (woody), and Tizona (SLC).

We were also treated to a real fancy sit down lunch at the restaurant "Alucinakis".

We stayed at the park until 4:30, as we had a 6 hour drive back to Madrid. I know that this may disappoint some (ok, none) of you, but I took no pics on the drive. I was too tired from the wild and crazy dinner/antics we had at the hotel the night before. No pics from that either. Some legends are better left untold! :Pr :P :lmao:


Anywho, please enjoy!
