The Tibidabo Amusement Park has a special timetable over the Christmas holidays. Over the long weekend, the park will be open until 7 pm on 6 and 7 December, and until 6 pm on 8 December. These times will be repeated the following weekend. From 21 December to 5 January, the park opens until 6 pm (except 25 and 26 December and 1 January).

New entertainment and parades for Christmas

Visitors to the Tibidabo Amusement Park will find two elves from Collserola, who will welcome people every day and help the Christmas spirit rub off on them. There’s also a chance to enjoy the balloon sculptures of Dr. Fly and take a trip around the park on his rickshaw with music and Christmas decorations.

The same characters will gather every afternoon at 4 pm, along with speaker Pep Callau and the Tibidabo mascots, to get the parade under way from the ‘Les Tasses’ ride to Plaça dels Somnis.

There are also two new Christmas shows to enjoy: Màgia nadalenca, by Dr. Fly, and Il·lusions de Nadal, by Pep Callau and Pepsicolen, when a giant Christmas card will be created. Both shows take place in Plaça dels Somnis.

The Tibimarionetàrium de Nadal is also back again this year, keeping some of the most significant puppets and featuring characters newly created for the occasion. Elsewhere, the Cinema 4D Dididado will be presenting The Time Carousel, a new four-dimensional film about a group of friends are tricked into a never-ending journey in time to do away with the fun of amusement parks.

Welcome to Tibidabo, grandparents!

This year brings the sixth edition of the celebration for grandparents, paying homage to grandads and grandmas who help educate children. Over the weekend of 21 and 22 December, pairs formed by a child and grandparent will get free admission to the park, as will anyone over the age of 60.

The ‘song of peace’ rings out again

The solidarity festival ‘La canço de la Pau’ (song of peace) has been held for 23 years and is being held again this year on 27 December, offering young children the chance to take part in an event where tolerance, solidarity and respect are the prevailing values.

On the day, pairs formed by an adult and a child up to the age of 14 will get free admission to the park before 11.30 am with a donation of 2 euros per head to go to UNICEF.

Throughout the day, children will be able to write texts in the Llibre de la pau del Tibidabo, which peace ambassadors will then read in public as messages of peace for the world.
