Touted as a magnet for developers in otherwise lacklustre spots, Spain's four flagship parks have fallen short of the over-enthusiastic predictions on which they were founded.

I thought Port Adventura was one of Spain's Flagships also. I wonder how that one is doing??

And Port Aventura in Salou with its white-knuckle rollercoaster rides, continues to lose money nine years after it opened.

There you have it, Port Aventura !

Well damn Gina! No need to get raggedy! In the list of related parks it listed everything sans Port Adventura!

A shame as they're all such quality parks. It's Port AVENTURA by the way, not Adventura.

A Valencia park isn't doing well??? hmmmmmm.

That's Valenica, Spain, not Valencia, CA.

It's unfortunate that these parks are having so many problems. Plenty of people in the US would be very happy with a WBMW Madrid or a Port Aventura being built in the region.
