^ ? Huh?! I'm confused. Lol!

In all honesty, it fits this area, as I said in the Shambhala topic a LOGN time ago, it fits with the whole Prayer Flag colour scheme. It's fantastic.

Today Khan has been open since 3pm and boy was the ride popular:



I have never seen a line like this since opening year.

If anyone was asking how do the trains look like:





Even though they look nicer with these final touches, I still don't quite dig the new colours...

And an on-ride video (it's a bit dodgy but shows some unusual views from Khan):

I bet everyone thought they were going for Shambhala.

I quite like the trains now, with the logo and all!

The floor? ;)

See. The trains don't look bad at all when they're on the track. Plus, that queue </3

What do you think of the new paintjob now that we can see the train roll on the track?

It doesn't look as bad as I thought but I still don't like the colourful scheme :( I liked to tell which train I was riding on!

It doesn't look as bad now they've got them running and have the 'Port Aventura' decals on them, but they'll still a bit ****. I much preferred the older trains, these are too busy.

Also, the sky in the fifth picture looks very evil! :p

Those pictures have actually cemented my belief that the new train colours are absolutely fantastic.

PA is officially no longer a theme park and more of a dump:



Foam party at a park? Next thing will be women doing lapdance at the Saloon...

PortAventura will never be a dump.
And you should have seen the queue for Shambhala last thursday, jesus christ, it was LONG.
Here is a few pictures of it,







As if I would ever wait that long.

**** that. Seriously, that's genuinely pathetic and disgusting. I am not looking forward to coming, I'll be honest.

Gosh, calm down, the Sunday before that it was fine.

It won't be three hours, plug it up and stop being such a girl.

I can't see this being a three hour queue, it looks more like 4-5 hours, the park may say it's only three hours, but I can see this being much longer... I mean it's right the way out of the enterance of the area.

That queue is horrendous. Why would anybody want to queue that long for a ride, no matter how good it is or regardless if it's new.

^^At least it's a B&M hyper and got great capacity! I remember Baco having (almost) these queues as well.. Not very tempting to get in line when you know how bad the capacity is on that one!!

It seems like Shambhala so far has been a great success for the park :) That's wonderful news since more visitors=more money=new ride sooner!

Going in July/August, I can bet it won't be far off this nearl every day. I can imagine it being VERY busy indeed, being over there at this time a few years back, when Baco was new, it wasn't far off of the same.
