Summer starts at Tibidabo on Wednesday
The park changes to longer opening hours for the summer season, opening its doors from Wednesday to Sunday in June and July.
The summer season at Tibidabo Amusement Park begins on Wednesday 27 June, with various new attractions, such as the new laser show, the new “castell dels contes” (Castle of Stories) and the traditional event, Tibidabo Magic. As usual, the Park is extending its opening hours for the summer and will be open from Wednesday to Sunday from 11.00 am. In July, the closing time will depend on the day of the week: Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 9.00 pm, Saturdays at 11.00 pm and Sundays at 10.00 pm.
During August, for the first time, the Park will stay open every day until 11.00 pm. For the first two weeks in September, the summer opening hours will continue. You can check the opening hours by clicking here.
The new end-of-day laser show begins on 11 August, an audio-visual night-time spectacular based on the history of cinema. The Plaça dels Somnis will be filled with lasers, beams of light and colourful dancing fountains, all in time with the music, while a projection shows animations and graphics with an accompanying narrator, explaining the changing face of the seventh art and different movie genres. The Castell dels Contes (Castle of Stories) will also be opened in August, aiming to recapture the imagination and the heart, in children and adults alike, with the tradition of storytelling.
Before that, on 7 July, the Ramon Martí Bonet Foundation charity festival will be held, with the aim of raising funds for the project "Vision For All in Catalonia", to ensure the right to healthy eyesight for vulnerable children and adults. Park tickets will be sold at a reduced price and sunglasses will be given out in aid of the charity. Also in July, it will be the anniversary of one of Tibidabo’s showpiece attractions, the Hotel Krueger, which will be 22 years old. Other shows will include a gospel concert on 15 July and a concert by Coral Voces on 22 July.
This year the now traditional Tibidabo Magic will be held for the seventh consecutive year, in which, every weekend in July, visitors can enjoy different shows where magic is the star, performed by five well-known magicians.
First will be the show "Plorarás ... de riure" (You’ll cry ... with laughter), a show by Nani the Magician mixing magic and humour, involving the audience and inviting them to join in with the magic tricks which include doves, magic handkerchiefs, playing cards and even fire. Magician Toni Cors will bring Andrew to life in the show "Andrew i la bossa màgica” (Andrew and the magic bag), featuring a magic bag that keeps him young even though he is 100 years old.
The show "Jo, Xicana" (I, Xicana) stars Xicana, played by magician Anna Montserrat, a clown who tries to do magic but always gets it wrong, mixing tenderness and innocence with the themes of the show. The family show "Encara Belluga" (Still Moving), by Montserrat Escopinya mixes magic, humour and improvisation with audience participation throughout. A perfect way to spend a while, with entertainment, fun and excitement guaranteed.
On the last magic weekend, visitors can enjoy "Potadecabra”, the best magic for children of all ages with very visual games performed with everyday items such as bags of crisps, sweets, plastic bottles, coloured marker pens or books.
