Terra Mitica attractions

And let's move on to the most important part of the park: the attractions and shows. Terra Mitica has a multitude of themed shows and more than 25 attractions different. The main attraction is the park's themed atmosphere, something that will certainly not disappoint you, both in the rides and the shows.

The highlight of the park is its themed areas. In each of them, the scenography of the shows and the decoration of all the rides and attractions is very well done. This is something that Terra Mítica takes great care in. If you have a predilection for any of them, you will certainly like them, although we recommend you to visit them all and enjoy large doses of fun for which you will need more than a full day.

Many of the shows are seasonal or change over time, so surprises are guaranteed.

We explain some of the most important attractions:

  • Argos Rapids. It's a great route at the end of which you're sure to come out wet. You recreate the mythical journey of Jason and the Argonauts in ancient Greece.
  • Nile River Falls. Riding on a sarcophagus of the Egyptian Pharaoh you can enjoy several falls, one of them on your back. The water is guaranteed.
  • Triton's Fury. A Splash with two falls, one of 10 metres and the other of 16 metres in the Greece area.
  • The Rescue of Ulysses. Another water journey centred on the search for Ulysses by his son Telemachus. Very well acclimatised and the scenery is very well done.
  • Tornado. A swivel chair attraction.
  • Synkope. It is a pendulum that swings and swings at a speed of 90 kilometres per hour. At the ends of the ride you will be at 120 degrees to the ground.
  • The flight of the Phoenix. You will feel the free fall at a height of 56 metres and a speed of 80 km/h. Nice views of Benidorm when you get to the top but... then a spectacular fall awaits you.
  • Titanide. A roller coaster with a height of 31 metres and a speed of 90 km and 5 inversions.
  • The Labyrinth of the Minotaur. It is a "dark ride" in vehicles and you will carry laser crossbows with which you will have to kill various creatures to defeat the Minotaur. It is located in the Greek area and recreates the labyrinth in which Theseus defeated the dreaded Minotaur.
  • Inferno. Another roller coaster. It is short but intense as the seats rotate on themselves throughout the ride.

We can also mention Magnus ColossusThe roller coaster is a great roller coaster in the Rome area but is currently undergoing maintenance.

Without a doubt, if you want to have a good time, Terra Mitica is the ideal place. You will probably need more than one day to enjoy all its wonders. Not only for the fun of the attractions but also for the atmosphere of the shows and all its corners. An experience not to be missed.
