Once a year, and just for a few weeks, the city of Palma gets its own theme park experience with the traditional Fira del Ram, which currently resides within the area of the “Poligono Son Fusteret”. This theme park will be around from the 24th of February to the 16th of April and features over 170 booths, bars, and attractions for all ages and for all family members.
Depending where you are in the city, one can recognize the area of the Fira del Ram by the visibibly large and gigantic Ferris wheel, which is probably one of the most popular attractions, giving visitors a spectacular view of the area and parts of the city. Nonetheless, upon entering the Fira del Ram zone, you’ll find plenty of things to do for all ages, whether it’s a fun house with your children or riding the new 60 meter tall tower that lifts people in a rocket form while spinning on it’s axis. Absolutely crazy.
The entry is completely free to the theme park itself as, unlike other theme parks, there is no single entrance fee. The rides are paid for directly at each of the attractions with prices ranging from ca. €3.50 to €7.00 depending on the ride. Hence, the activity of visiting the theme park itself may be costly for families depending on how much your ride, what you ride, and how many people ride.
There are also virtual reality rides including the tower hotel or the haunted house roller coaster which provide an interactive virtual reality experience while riding a classical theme park ride. Children will also find numerous activities for all ages including bumper cars, trampoline jumping, many stands and more.
The Fira also several food booths and stands where you can grab everything from Churros to hot dogs, to grilled sausages. Your typical theme park food, so don’t expect anything all to exciting.
