Re: Portaventura tips!!!

to be honest if you are looking for a cheaper option then maybe staying in Salou and then buying multi day tickets with added water park may be better for you

Re: Portaventura tips!!!

I have stayed a few times there. For me the nicest hotel is Caribe, but is only half board. El Paso is great and is all inclusive. You will get a fast track card to enjoy a few sneeky queue cutting rides. With staying at the El Paso you get to eat in the oarks at certain vendors and get a refillable...

Re: Merlin Fastrack - the solution?

Me personally think that Merlin should use the same a Disney in more ways than one. Fast Track like Disney. But when you return for the ride you use the alternative enterance that takes u into the queue, but 3/4 of the way in so you still have a little wait then there is little disruption to the mai...

Re: Universal Orlando Resort: General Discussion

I went out for Horror Nights in October and it was good. The 3d maze was excellent. I also went out for xmas and new year and this was totally busy. Mad in fact they were shutting parks by 10.30 as they were at capacity. Jaws has now closed in Universal Studios. Apparently according to a guide we ha...

Re: Universal Orlando

We went mid june 2010 and it was pretty dead. Apart from Harry Potter nothing really went over 1hr queue time. If you book with Virgin Holidays you can get early entry into the Happy Potter area before hotel guests get there and also have a breakfast. Really good as you get to see it all in the dark...

Re: Scarefest 2012

My first Scarefest was 2009  and I was really impressed with it, I loved the Haunted Hollow with all the actors. The teenagers who thought it was good to scare little kids tho got on my nerves. I went in 2010 and was not that impressed tbh. I was disgruntled that I had to pay for mazes when I a...
