PortAventura World expects to welcome more than 5.3 million visitors in 2023 as the theme park resort kicks off its longest-ever season.

The site, located near Tarragona, Spain, will be open for 276 days this year, up from 267 days last year and 259 days in 2019.

Resort bosses predicted visitor numbers will increase this year by more than 200,000 as a result of the extended season.

About half a million British and Irish visitors are expected to come to the resort, which is one of the largest leisure destinations in Europe.

The resort operates six hotels including a five-star property plus two additional hotels outside the resort.

PortAventura will host its first Carnival across several weekends in February and March this year. The event is inspired by the Carnival in Brazil and Italy, the park said.

The world’s first dark ride roller coaster will also open in the first half of 2023.

The €25m attraction – named Uncharted – is 700 metres long and has five acceleration speeds which makes it ‘unique’ in Europe, according to PortAventura World.

In the summer, a solar park will open and power around a third of the park.

PortAventura Solar will have more than 11,100 solar panels covering 6.4 hectares.
