Visiting the theme parks in Benidorm

Theme parks are a sensation and, actually, quite a few people organise trips only with the aim of visiting them. Benidorm possesses 5 different theme parks attracting thousand of visitors each year.

One of them is Terra Mítica, a theme park where the visitor can know during the tour the history of ancient civilizations such as Egypt, Greece, Rome and Iberia.

Funfairs fans will have a good time in Terra Mítica, where is placed the longest wooden roller coaster in Europe, and “The Flight of the Phoenix” with 60 metres height.  And not only that, they will be fascinated with two of its most famous attractions, Infinito and Infierno, where strong emotions are more than guaranteed.

Nature lovers will enjoy a walk by Terra Natura, a 320.000 square metres park with recreations of natural habitats hosting 2.500 examples of flora and 1.500 animals. Among them, you can contemplate some endangered animals such as the first Indian rhinoceros born in captivity in Spain.

In addition, animal enthusiasts could also visit Mundomar, a marvellous park with sea and exotic animals such as flamingos and parrots. The dolphins shows are a real wonder.
