PortAventura opens its 2012 season

Since I didn't want to spoil the Shambhala thread I will open this one to talk about the other minor additions to the park for this year.

First off, the park, yet again, has renewed almost all of the shows (and not in a nice way, according to most of the people that have watched them already). The main one, Music Generation, is located in the Imperial Theatre and is a mashup of top hits of the past decades randomly mixed with the themeing of the 5 different areas (example: some Chinese dancing to Lady Gaga - WTF? :--D ).





Second, Khan is ready to run but will not until the working area for Shambhala is clear of heavy machinery and testing has started. Besides, its trains have been attacked by some kind of candy-maniac. Watch this:





Trains look shiny and I could even tell that the harnesses have been completely swapped by new ones. They just don't belong to Khan :evil:

Also in China, PA have added the driving school called "Kids&Cars" (sponsored by Peugeot) featuring electric cars to teach driving lessons to the youngest of the family. This addition really fits in the area and could even be called 'cute'. It is located next to the Great Wall, where the old arcade games used to be.







And finally, digital time displays have been added throughout the park (I don't know if they are at the ride entrances too). Seems the way to go, since the chalk blackboards were very messy (were not updated regulary and properly) and people used to erase the times or even change them :roll:



So far, you can see the major roller coasters on top (including Shambhala), and then a random selection of rides featuring water rides, Hurakan Condor, etc. If you look closely, the bottom has still some space. This will show the waiting time of seasonal attractions (Halloween, Christmas, etc.).

Can I expect Khan to be open if I were to visit on...say, the 3rd of April? Because if it isn't, I don't think I will bother going to PA this year

I'll be at the park on Wednesday. Still, if I read somewhere in the Spanish forums that Khan is running I'll let you know.

No, I actually like them. **** you.

They really accentuate the shape of the train, which I love.

It's past midday Lofty, I thought the rule was you had to give it up after then?

Fool, they look terrible. ;)

Each to their own, I don't care, I genuinely like them. They're wild.

For those going to PA, Khan will be open from Good Friday to Monday 9th of April (local holiday) from 3pm until closing time (so, 7pm or 8pm).

After the 9th Khan will remain closed until the opening of Shambhala. This will allow B&M and the park to test the hypercoaster safely and continue themeing the area.

The trains are growing on me, just like the track colour did, I'm sure it'll look vivid and colourful when it's running on a hot sunny day!

It looks like a visitor ate too much at the confectionary store, and got nervous when they were about to board -_-
