    Gravity Defying Thrills on the Spanish Coast


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     KosherBlend6 was in Spain on vacation and, as a roller coaster enthusiast, made sure to visit the PortAventura theme park in Salou. The roller coaster in picture #1 is called Shambhala, which he said is the park's newest roller coaster and the tallest roller coaster in Europe. 'I liked this roller coaster because of the speed and the moments of "airtime" or the feeling of weightlessness. It was also cool that the ride has moments when it flies over Dragon Khan (the red roller coaster).'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    PortAventura is one of the premier theme park resorts in Europe. Situated about an hour southwest of Barcelona by train, this park has something for everyone. I had the pleasure of visiting the park this summer and got the chance to ride some of their incredible roller coasters, including the 8-loop monster, Dragon Khan and the new Shambhala hyper coaster (both pictured). I highly recommend this park for anyone who will be traveling to Barcelona, Salou, or Tarragona.
