Tibidabo Amusement Park holds the "No Limits Summer" festival

More than 1,800 children with various disabilities and reduced mobility have had an equal opportunity to enjoy the Park’s rides and attractions

Tibidabo Amusement Park has opened its doors exclusively to people with various disabilities and reduced mobility, for the 23rd holding of the festival "Un estiu sense barreres” (No Limits Summer). More than 1,800 children from 67 schools for the disabled have taken part, each of them having an equal opportunity to enjoy all the Park’s rides and attractions, thanks to the work of volunteers from the Red Cross and Volunteers 2000.

Highlights include the automaton "Thirteen-Twelve", created by the curator of the Park’s Automata Museum in 2017. The automaton is made especially for people with visual impairment, and can be touched to identify its shape, the materials it’s made from and its mechanisms. A special performance of the show "Geronimo Stilton and the Enigmatic Letters" has also been produced.

Meanwhile, there are already fully accessible rides for people with disabilities in the Park, such as the Giradabo Ferris wheel or the “Embruixabruixes” (Witches’ Den), with pods adapted for wheelchair access.

An adapted Park map has been published

Tibidabo Amusement Park continues to be committed to making more areas and rides increasingly accessible. With this in mind, an accessibility map of the Park has been published this year, with specific information for people with disabilities. The map is contained in the pre-visit pack, which is intended to help you prepare your visit in advance, and the Braille panel situated at the Park’s main lookout point, from where you can see the city’s most iconic places and buildings.
