Hyper Coaster

Opened in 2012, Shambhala towers some 249-feet over the Spanish theme park. The ride has become the tallest roller coaster in Europe, hitting a top speed of 83 miles per hour at the base of 255-feet first drop. It is themed around an expedition to the Himalayas, and features extensive theming including tunnels and water features.

Manufactured by Swiss coaster specialists Bolliger & Mabillard, Shambhala cost some €25 million to install at Port Aventura. Its circuit features five camelback hills, providing significant "airtime" for coaster fans. Sections of its circuit intertwine with the existing Dragon Khan coaster, which it is set to supercede as Port Aventura's biggest draw.
