Thrills and Chills Await This Halloween Season at PortAventura

PortAventura, Spain (August 6, 2015) — This Fall, PortAventura will lift the lid off the cauldron of terror. On September 26th, the new Halloween season begins. Horror fans of all ages will enjoy the park’s attractions and shows in an eerie atmosphere full of mystery. The great range of spectacular shows and rides will make PortAventura’s Halloween unmissable.

Following last year’s huge success, “Horror Passage” will return to PortAventura with the popular spine-chilling experiential show inspired by the latest film of the famous zombie series “[REC] 4: Apocalypse”. Guests will walk through an inhospitable passage and, while running for their lives, the special effects, petrifying noises and atmospheric scenery will allow visitors the chance to face up to zombies.

If guests feel tough enough, the legendary “Selva de Miedo” outdoor terror walk through the jungle of the Polynesia area will be waiting. Visitors can also try Horror en Penitence”, a macabre and difficult to escape maze in the Far West area.

In the Mexican area, guests will be delighted with a breath-taking show based on the Day of the Dead folklore. Those brave enough to visit Emma’s House restaurant in the Far West zone will have the chance to meet a macabre family whose dishes hide scarily funny surprises.

But there is no doubt visitors of all ages will enjoy the Halloween entertainment offered in every area of the park. Younger visitors will adore the family friendly Sesamo Aventura area that will offer fun activities for children.

Music lovers shouldn’t miss the incredible “Rock Symphony”, a gothic performance of extremely talented dancers and acrobats. The legendary show “Love for Vampires” won’t be forgotten as it tells the story of Alexei, the master of darkness, and his beautiful maidens being hunted by vampires. “Bang Bang Halloween” is another incredible acrobatic show not to be missed.

The Mediterranean area will host the majority of the night-time program, with the “Halloween Parade” bringing to an end the series of daily events each evening. A colorful collection of vehicles will be taking part including an old horse-drawn hearse, a cute pumpkin, a giant skeleton riding a bicycle, and a huge demon. The lake in the area will stage “Horror en el lago,” a spectacular fire display, with fireworks and music featuring a monstrous dragon and the sinister character of Death.
