Tibidabo Amusement Park
Parc d'atraccions del Tibidabo
Tibidabo Amusement Park is the most antique amusement park in Spain and the second most antique in Europe.
The park has an approximate area of 70.000 m2 and its privileged location makes it a unique panoramic viewpoint of Barcelona.
If you are planning to spend a day in the park, you should take into account that long queues can be formed in front of the ticket offices at the opening hours. In order to avoid such queues, you should consider buying your entrance tickets through the parks official website or arriving before the opening time.
For those planning to take the car, there is a paid car park. The parks official website allows you to book a space in this car park, as well as in other car parks in Barcelona, which offer a shuttle service to the amusement park.
The park has a picnic area, which means that you can enter your own food and drinks to the park. However, you will find restaurants and other places to eat during your visit.
How to get to the Tibidabo
There are different ways of getting to the amusement park.
Classic way (Tramvia Blau + Funicular)
The most classic way of getting to the Tibidabo Amusement Park is taking the Tramvia Blau (Barcelona’s most antique tram) and then the cable car (Funicular) to the Tibidabo. This route is specially indicated when you are travelling with kids (and with those not so young).
The Tramvia Blau starts its itinerary at John. F. Kennedy Place and concludes it at the basement of the cable car, which is located at Dr. Andreu Place.
The John F. Kennedy Place is in the uptown. To get there you can take different bus lines or the FGC (line 7) from Plaça Catalunya till Av. Tibidabo. The Bus Turístic also offers a route, which has a stop next to the Tramvia Blau.
Once the short but emblematic route of the Tramvia Blau has finished, you have to take the cable car to the Tibidabo. Make sure to buy a round trip-ticket and to review the schedules for the cable car, in order to be aware of the last ride. If you accede to the mountain by public transport, you should avoid loosing the last return trip.
Tibibus from Plaça Catalunya
There is a bus line in Plaça Catalunya, which takes you to the Tibidabo. This line is only working, the days the Amusement Park is open.
Tibibus from Vall d'Hebron.
In front of the Vall d’Hebron Hospital you will be able to find a car park, where tickets to the park are sold and which offers a shuttle service to the amusement park. This option is specially indicated for those arriving by car from outside of Barcelona and who are not willing to enter the city to look for a car park. Moreover, this option is cheaper, than leaving the car in the car park of the amusement park.
The parks official website offers detailed explanations on the different ways to get to the park.
