The red and blue theme translates throughout the ride, and it was a thrilling start to the day at the park.

4. BATMAN™: La Fuga
Gotham City in Parque Warner Madrid, Spain
Head into Gotham City for the next ride. And nope, you wouldn't be seeing Christian Bale or Ben Affleck for that matter. Instead, prepare to head to the Arkham Asylum, a prison that houses The Joker, Poison Ivy, Mr Freeze, and Bane.

The tracks of Batman La Fuga are on the top so you'll feel like you're flying as you are on the rollercoaster. In comparison to the other rides, this is a much milder one that you can possibly go two, or three, or maybe even four times!

5. Lex Luthor
Lex Luthor, Parque Warner Madrid, Spain
Lex Luthor is an inverter ride that takes you 360 degress, leaving you upside down a few times throughout the ride. Be sure not to take a full meal before the ride to avoid throwing up!
For us, we have tried faster inverter rides that are more thrilling than this. We thought that this ride was a little slow for our liking and it is probably more suitable for younger children.
Thrill factor: +
6. Police Academy Stunt Show

Like fast cars? Then you got to watch the Police Academy Stunt Show where you'll get to see cars and motorcycles pit against one another as the police catch thieves narrative come into play. Alongside stunning pyrotechnics and loud booms and bams, it is a show appropriate for families.
Thrill factor: ++
7. The Crowds
What crowds? There were hardly anyone in the park. We believe that a good theme park experience = short waiting times, low crowd to maximise your time there.
Look at the number of people, you can possibly count it with both hands. This also meant that we had opportunites to take the rides multiple times with hardly any waiting time!
As compared to many other overrated theme parks, where there are long waiting lines, with you struggling to get a fast pass, why not go to Parque Warner to experience what it may seem like your own private park.
8. Warner Bros Characters

How many of you have pictures taken with Mickey, Minnie, Winnie the Pooh and the likes... But how often do you get the chance to take photographs with the Warner Bros Characters like Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Bugs Bunny, Tasmanian Devil, and the Marvin the Martian? It is indeed a unique experience to see these characters come to life as they walk around the park. Statues of them are also erected everywhere round the park.

Along with the fact that there's little families (and people in general) in the park, you won't have to wait in queues just to take a photo with the characters. If you are a parent with little children who absolutely want photos with every single character, this is the place you should go to!
9. The food!
Delicious ribs and sides
After taking all the rides, you'll definitely want to fill your stomach with food. With 21 restaurants and cafes in the park, you can have your pick on what you would like. Be it a sit down restaurant, or just a quick snack. What's more, with a Spainish price tag, what's more to grumble?
