I have visited Portaventura since i was 8 years old, this is the first time i came back incredibly sour in the mouth from the way i was treated.
I have a head injury which means i wear a protective helmet (specially made with straps so it has never fallen off) as a precaution for my head scars.
My doctor has always told me that there is more danger in falling over while walking around a theme park that the rides themselves, so i never let my head scars get in the way of my fun. i have been to Germany, US, and theme parks all around England ever since.
I have been to Portaventura ever since i was around 10, i've ridden Baco, Shambhala, Dragons Khan and ECT a million times and loved the place.
Though on my visit last week the staff were rude, refused entry on rides due to my helmet, refused even after taking my protective helmet off, pointed to my head mockingly. This completely has left me sour on the park and Salou as a place overall.
The hilarious thing is.. Some rides like Shambhala, Furius Baco and Dragons Khan refused me, but i went to Ferrari Land and went on Red Force 3 times in a row? WTF PORTAVENTURA? WTF?
Overall my trip to Portaventura was very bitter, i constantly felt on edge and punished for being disabled, which is disgusting.
If you have any disability, go to Europa Park in Germany.
They will actually treat you with respect.
Even if you do end up in Salou, avoid Portaventura like the plague.
