The Tibidabo Amusement Park was inaugurated in 1901 and is the oldest facility of its kind still operating in Spain. It is also the third oldest amusement park in Europe and one of the oldest in the world. One of its main attractions is that some of the attractions that were created during its first years of life, such as the Automaton Museum, the Plane or the Talaia, have been maintained, but new state-of-the-art attractions have also been installed.
This amusement park located on the mountain of Tibidabo, has more than 30 attractions for all ages, but that's not all. They also organize shows and itinerant animation, and special shows on days like Halloween. In addition, you will find restaurants with views, a picnic area and all the necessary services to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
- Talaia: It has been in operation since 1921. Climbing up to this attraction you will get to be at the highest point of Barcelona, exactly 550 meters above sea level and with 360º panoramic views over the city.
- Airplane: It flies over Barcelona since 1928. It is the most iconic attraction of the amusement park. The Plane is the first flight simulator in history and is a replica of the first plane that made the flight between Barcelona and Madrid. Although it is supported by a structure, it moves by the impulse of its own propeller.
- Automata Museum: A world-renowned museum that brings together more than 40 pieces (automatons, models and recreational games) from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The oldest of the pieces is the automaton called "The Mandolin Clown" which was created in 1880.

The Tibidabo Amusement Park has an important added value: the views of Barcelona it provides. In the so-called Panoramic Area, which is free access, you can follow a route in which you can enjoy the best views of Barcelona at 500 meters high. We do not exaggerate if we say that this is the best terrace in the city. On this route you will find the so-called emblematic attractions, which you can access with a pass, without having to buy the entrance to the entire amusement park.
La Cuca de Llum (the firefly)
To get to Tibidabo Amusement Park by public transport you have to take several means of transport. The last of these is a funicular that was completely remodeled starting in 2019 and began operating again in 2021. The new funicular car, which has been given the name Cuca de Llum, can be considered the park's first attraction due to its design and features.
When Walt Disney visited Tibidabo Amusement Park, he said it had been one of the most magical places he had ever been, and when he designed his own parks he was inspired by it. In addition, in 1957 he tried to buy Tibidabo's collection of automatons, but the company refused to sell them.
