Welcome to our guide to the theme park of Terra Mitica in Benidorm on Spain’s Costa Blanca.
Theme parks have become all the rage to have a family day out and Benidorm is blessed with FIVE of them!
Benidorm is blessed with long hot summers with little rain and maximum enjoyment can be had at the famous Terra Mitica theme park.
Terra Mitica is an ancient world theme park with rides, roller coasters and live entertainment.
You will find the theme park located on the hillside just outside of Benidorm and it is easily accessed from the AP7 or the N332.
Once inside the park there is something for everyone. As most people come to enjoy the roller coasters and the altitude rides where you can enjoy getting wet.
There are also mini versions for the smaller younger visitors, who are measured before each ride for height.
To make sure you choose a dry and sunny day to visit Terra Mitica checkout Benidorm’s weather forecast before you go.
Benidorm itself is located on the Northern Costa Blanca in Spain. To take a vacation in Benidorm flights would have to be booked either to Valencia, Murcia or Alicante – all within a 90 drive from Terra Mitica.
While in Spain you have to hire a car to enjoy all that the Costa Blanca has to offer as everything is spread out and local bus services are limited, or alternatively you can drive your own car to Spain from the U.K. to avoid paying for car hire.
Attractions and Rides
Terra Mitica is an ancient world theme park based on five civilizations featuring shows and rides.
The first civilization is Rome with its gladiators, Iberia Park, Ancient Greece, Egypt and The Islands.
The Terra Mitica park is not open all year round (see exact opening times below).
The scariest rides at Terra Mitica are Magnus Colossus and SynKope.
Families really enjoy the Rapids of Argos where you float down the rapids and most people in the raft get soaking wet!
There are 15 children’s rides which are exact replicas of the scarier adult rides so they don’t feel like they are missing out on the fun.
There are so many rides at the park that it is hard to do them all in one day. If you can, take your time and at the end when you leave they give you another days admission for just €8.
When you enter the park you will immediately enter the world of ancient Egypt with its pyramids and the river Nile.
You can take a cruise from Alexandria towards Iberia with a view of all the fantastic rides or you can go straight to the first ride of the Nile Waterfalls. This ride takes place inside a log flume with a twenty meter forward drop not for the faint hearted!
When leaving your boat from the Egyptian docks at El Moll there are a great variety of rides in Iberia including Crazy Cars where the cars have been replaced by bulls, cows and sheep.
Taking the train on El Trano Bravo is a must in Iberia a fabulous experience.
The Mediterranean Islands are represented by a great area of water rides including the Rapids of Argos, be prepared to get very wet as you battle currents and rescue Ulysses.
Greece’s most scariest ride is Synkope classed to be Terra Miticas newest terrifying ride consisting of a giant red wheel which can hold seventy screaming passengers.
The temple of Kinetos is another attraction. Children can explore the Ancient Greek world on horseback. The main attraction of Ancient Rome has to be the flight of the Phoenix which takes you seventy meters into the air and will drop you at a rate of 120 kilometers per hour.
The main rollercoaster of Ancient Rome is Magnus Colossus, the children’s version is Tentaculus telling the story of the Fire and the Phoenix. There are live shows in the amphitheatre portraying life in everyday Rome.
Even if you are not into rollercoasters and rides there are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops to keep you busy as well as some really good shows such as Tarantela, a circus performance filled with dance and humour.
Every year Terra Mitica premiers a new attraction such as the Warrior of the Dawn. I wonder what it will be this year?
For those that love speed, the Mitikarts are a must.
The Pyramid of Terror is Terra Mitica’s answer of the Haunted House, where mummies and pharaohs will scare you half to death.
