PortAventura, which is located in Salou, Catalonia, became Spain's first theme park when it opened in 1995. Since then it has expanded to include an aquatic park, three golf courses, four 500-room hotels and a convention center with capacity for 4,000 people.

PortAventura is the premier theme park in Spain in terms of revenues (nearly 175 million euros), visits (nearly four million) and profitability (27 million euros net profit), and one of the leading parks in southern Europe by number of visits. PortAventura also boasts the Shambhala, Europe's highest, fastest and longest-descending roller coaster.
