PortAventura announces world-first Uncharted dark ride coaster

PortAventura has announced plans for a new Uncharted dark ride coaster with Sally Dark Rides and Intamin behind the €25m attraction






Popular Spanish theme park resort PortAventura has teamed up with Sony Pictures for the development of a world-first dark ride rollercoaster dedicated to the Uncharted franchise.

One of the world’s most successful gaming franchises, the new dark ride attraction will be based on the movie version of Uncharted starring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg, with the ride expected to open in the middle of 2023.

The coaster, which is being developed at a cost of €25m (US$25.8m, £21.6m), will be 700m (2,300ft) in length, reaching heights of up to 12m (39ft) and will be entirely located inside a 4,800sq m (51,700sq ft), 16m (52ft) high immersive space. Located in the Far West area of the park, the location is fitting for the story, which will see riders go on a hunt for one of the greatest treasures ever discovered. The ride has significant pedigree behind it, with Intamin and Sally Dark Rides both working on the new attraction.

“This alliance will allow us to be present at a global scale launching our first dark ride rollercoaster and perfectly complement our offering,” said David Garcia, EVP and managing director of PortAventura World.

“We’re convinced that this new attraction with state-of-the art technology will be instrumental in creating great moments and memories for families and friends that come to spend their holidays and free time in our resort.”
