Located just south of Madrid, thrill seekers can get there via public transportation or car. This park has roller coasters like the Superman: La Atracción de Acero with its floorless train giving you the feel of flying with the man of steel. However, if you’re not keen on losing your lunch in front of your friends, then we suggest trying the more kiddie friendly rides from their Cartoon Village.
