Christmas is coming to PortAventura. From November 23rd the resort will transform into a fantastic winter dreamscape where young and old alike can enjoy a truly magical Christmas. With spectacular lighting, fir trees and festive decorations, plus 17 daily shows created especially for the season, PortAventura will become the perfect place to enjoy an unforgettable Christmas getaway or family holiday.
New for 2013
The biggest change for this year is the huge Christmas Market in the Mediterrània area. Inspired by the traditional markets in the great capitals of central Europe, its 31 wooden stalls will offer visitors a cornucopia of Christmas treats including leather goods, wickerwork, soaps and perfumes as well as handmade delicacies such as breads, cheeses and crackers.
Market visitors will also be able to watch the artistry and incredible technique of an ice sculptor as he creates figures from his imagination. PortAventura has installed another new feature that follows the route of its Wall of China: Snowtubing. This slide is designed for children but it’s great fun for grown-ups too. Meanwhile, those who want to test their acrobatic skills will have the chance to feel like professional skaters as they glide across the new ice rink in the México area.
During these days, PortAventura will also launch a new movie in 4-D: Christmas Adventure, a story where fairies, Christmas characters and also the viewers will be in charge of the making of a sweet dessert for a child. We will follow the sweets across Santa’s factory in a unique and fabulous journey.
Festive family shows
Just like every Christmas season, PortAventura will present a packed programme of festive family entertainment. Musicals featuring acrobatic displays and spectacular outdoor ice-skating will feature alongside performances of live music, filling every corner of the park with popular yuletide tunes.
The China area’s Gran Teatro will be the stage for the must-see Regalo de Navidad (Christmas Present) show. It tells the story of a little girl who, according to legend, didn’t believe in Christmas and whose worried parents decided that the only solution was to go inside her dreams and take her on a journey to PortAventura’s toy factory. Regalo de Navidad is an astonishing musical whose dances, songs and attention to detail will take audiences on a magical ride through a world of surprises. Another cracking Christmas show is El Bosque Encantado (The Enchanted Forest), where goblins, wizards and fairies roam at will, searching for the secret shortcut that leads to the home of Santa Claus.
In China we’ll have Pushankina Daria, an artist who will makes us discover how sand can create magical in the show Christmas Sand Animation.
The smaller ones can not miss their annual meeting with their favorite characters in SésamoAventura
Very young visitors will be delighted with the annual chance to meet their favourite Sesame Street characters in SésamoAventura. Cast regulars Elmo, Bert and Ernie are joined this year by Count Von Count to help them sing and dance the craziest Christmas carols. But without doubt the most unmissable event will be the visit of the Royal Emissaries. Fresh from the East, these envoys of the Three Kings will visit the park collecting Christmas letters from children in PortAventura before providing the finishing touch to the Christmas Parade in front of Mediterrània’ s lake.
And of course, on January 5th the Three Kings themselves will arrive to lead the traditional Kings’ Parade, delivering gifts to all the children who visit the park on this most magical night of the year.
