The Experience

* Arrangement: Riders are arranged 4 across and parallel with the track, 4 seats per car with 2 on either side of the rails for a total of 24 riders per train. Note the seats do not spin on this 4th dimension coaster as do another design.
* Notes: Baco is the Spanish for Bacchus, the Greek/Roman god of wine. Built at a cost of 15 million € while the entire project was budgeted for 27 million €. The park retained Thinkwell Europe SL to spearhead the creation of the project as they did with Temple del Fuego. Half of the seats in each row are to either side of the track giving it 4th dimension attributes. Located in the Mediterrània section of the park.
* Structure: Baco is the Spanish for Bacchus, the Greek/Roman god of wine. Built at a cost of 15 million € while the entire project was budgeted for 27 million €. The park retained Thinkwell Europe SL to spearhead the creation of the project as they did with Temple del Fuego. Located in the Mediterrània section of the park.
* Elements: Launch, tunnel, slight dip, overbanked turn through another tunnel, left turn, inline twist before sweeping across the water and returning to the station.
* Features: Acceleration from 0 - 135 km/h in 3.5 sec using hydraulic catapult launch. Storyline follows a crazy inventor and his mischievous pet monkey who set out to create a new fangled machine to transfer wine into bottles. While in the queue staging area riders will see robotic mechanics picking grapes and collecting wine into bottles. The coaster is the means of transporting the barrels of wine. While inside the building it will be apparent that crash test dummies are used for this new form of transportation but have crashed ... more "crash test dummies" are needed for the experiment. This is where you come in.

The Verdict


Furious Baco. Just came back from a trip to Portaventura. The Kids were lucky enough to get on the ride before the official opening on Wed 6th June as they opened it up to members of the public for about two hours. There was a virtual stampede as they opened the gates and the queue was approx 1.5 hours for a ride that lasted approx 1 minute! They said that the speed was awesome and you could really feel the G force as you took off; the inverted bit came as a surprise as you couldn’t really see it coming. Much faster than Aerosmith Rock n rollercoaster at Disneyland Paris.
