Bird House võimaldab ise köögis toitu valmistada aga seal kohapeal ei pakuta hommikusööki vaid külalised suunatakse lähedal olevasse Ordesa kohvikusse. Hinna sees 1 croissant ja tee/kohv/kakao (üks valikust). Aga cammoon.
Tibidabo lõbustuspark on tinglikult jagatud kaheks, ülemine osa sisaldab algupäraseid ning alumised tasemed hiljem lisatud atraktsioone, mida on võimalik kasutada päeva jooksul piiramatu kord (Krugeri maja).
Ailil on (väike) kõrgusekartus, mille ta esimest korda vapralt ületas (oih, lennates juba) ilusal värvilisel vaaterattal. Käisime peaaegu kõigil atraktsioonidel, mis täiskasvanutele sobilikud olid, karusellid, rongid, peeglite tuba, 4D kino jne. Olin esialgu arvanud, et oleme umbes kella kolmeks lõpetanud aga järjekorrad ja huvitavad kogemused ei teinud seda mõeldavakski. Ja Aili järjekordne eneseületus, Ameerika mäed.
Eelviimaseks Krugeri hotelli järjekord. Järgmised 40 minutit ootamist. Sisse lubati maksimaalselt kümnesed grupid, loeti peale sõnad mitte joosta ning püsida koos. Meie gruppi sattus kolm väikest last. Oi, see oli ka super elamus. Oleks veel saanud grupis esimene olla, mina olin viimane. Tubades kohtasime paljusid õudusfilmidest tuntud tegelasi nagu Freddy Kruger, Hannibal Lecter, Dracula jne. Väga hästi grimmeeritud näitlejad ning mitte lihtsalt ootamatu ehmatamise peale üles ehitatud. Lapsed kisasid ja olid tõsiselt hirmunud. Kõige kõhedam oli teadmine, et keegi liigub sinu selja taga.

Tagasi hakkasime sõitma umbes 17:45 ja kesklinna jõudsime 18:30 paiku. Õhtusöögiks veisefilee Celler de Tapas restoranis.
1st August. We have a one hour time difference with Barcelona that made waking up without an alarm clock really easy. When looking for a place to live I read that Bird House room price includes breakfast. For me, it is no essential but it makes the start of the day so much easier and I make my desicion in favour of room with a breakfast 98% of the time. Bird House has a shared kitchen and a fridge (for three rooms in our case) but it doesn`t have breakfast opportunities in the building so we got breakfast coupons for Ordesa cafe that includes a croissant and either cocoa/coffee/tea. But cammoon.

We had plenty of time so we could take our time walking to Placa de Catalunya. The first bus to Tibidabo mountain leaves at 10:15am. The drive took us through Barcelona`s busy traffic and the constant traffic lights and ended on top of Tibidabo 512 meter high mountain. The mountain that is crowned by Sagrat Cor church and the amusement park that was built in 1899 and opened in 1905.
Tibidabo amusement park is diveded into two parts, the original attractions in the top level and the newer ones, that can be used countless times a day (except for Hotel Kruger), on the five levels below.
At some point we found ourselves waiting in a looong queue that moved really slowy. When we got closer it was clear the virtual reality train ride with goggles took 1min50sek and by then we had waited for about half an hour. That massive queue. The train drove two laps and when it finished the first, most people screamed and continued so until the end of the drive. After an almost 50-minute wait it was finally our time. That wait better be worth that wait. We found our vagon, received our goggles, put them on and the world disappeared completely.There were three cartoon animals on an old time raiway and the sound coming from the goggles isolated the outside world. We drove on the railway, flew into abyss when the tracks ended, flew a dragon. It all felt soooo unbelievably real, as I was actually there. That was absolutely incredibly indescribable experience and so worth the almost one-hour wait.
Then it was time for Hotel Kruger. Another 40-minute wait. Maximum 10 people inside at one time, we were instructed not to run and stay qith our group at all times. We had three younger children in our group as well. Wow, that was also a brilliant experience. I only wish I could have been the first in our group, but I was the last. We met several horror movie characters moving from room to room like Freddy Kruger, Hannibal Lecter, Dracula, etc.
Real actors with realistic make-up and the horror built not only on unexpected surprises but also good acting. The children screamed all the way, being really spooked. But the creepiest thing was the knowledge of someone walking behind you.

We started driving back at about 5:45pm and reached the town centre at 6:30pm. For dinner
we had a beef fillet in Celler de Tapas.
