The story behind PortAventura World’s Stampida is somewhat unusual. Two years after PortAventura Park first opened its gates, the Connery and Cranberry families – the founders of Penitence – decided to build a roller coaster in the Far West area. However, when their plan was first set out, no one imagined that they would create a race track for their constant duels, nor that they would invite visitors to the park to ride the trains.
But they achieved much more than just this, going above and beyond to create a truly blistering experience. One kilometre of high-speed climbs and descents, where the dust clouds rise behind you and it’s impossible to resist the urge to shout “yee-haw!” into the skies.
Finishing first depends on the colour you choose. As soon as you reach the queue, you’ll need to choose whether you want to ride the red train or the blue train. If you’re one of those people who hates losing at just about anything, we recommend making the right choice… because only one train can finish first!
The important thing is not the result, but feeling the thrill
Do you know the best thing about PortAventura World’s Stampida? Well, even if you don’t come first, the emotions will be so strong that you’ll want to ride it over and over again.
