Terra Mítica Benidorm opens its doors

New shows and exciting rides are on offer at Terra Mítica. This leisure park in Benidorm opens its doors on 16th April with a whole host of interesting new attractions.

The expanse of vegetation has tripled and a 4,500 m2 natural roof has been constructed to offer shade and rest, with a fog system which creates a pleasant microclimate.

In addition, there will be more staff on hand and the number of seats available has been increased, so visitors should not have to wait any longer than 10 minutes to go on a ride. There are also three new rides for children, and the existing attractions have been meticulously inspected and overhauled.

The entertainment area has also been completely reformed. There will be four new shows and the programme has been extended; thirty performances a day with one performance every fifteen minutes.

Furthermore, the park will be open 170 days a year, representing an increase of 20% on the previous season. Opening hours will be from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., but will be extended to 10 p.m. on 21st, 22nd and 23rd April and until midnight from 15th July until 4th September.


Mediterranean Miniatures Fair in Benidorm

This weekend, on 16th and 17th April, the Hotel Don Pancho in Benidorm will be hosting the Mediterranean Miniatures Fair. Artisans from the different provinces of Spain will be presenting their tiny works of art with a view to turning this exhibition into part of the cultural offer available in this city on the Costa Blanca coastline.

The fair aims to bring the curiosities of the fantastic hobby of making dollhouses to both visitors and locals alike. Every year, it brings together miniaturist artisans, some renowned and others just starting out, who will delight members of the public with their works of art; pieces that are essential to bring dollhouses to life or which offer the inspiration required to create new scenes and projects.

During the fair, you can talk directly to the artisans, ask any questions you might have and understand more about their pieces, how they are made and how to adapt them to your projects.
