FUN FOR ALL: Seasonal festivities at Port Adriano. CREDIT: Port Adriano

MAGICAL festive fun for free continues at Port Adriano in the run-up to Spain’s traditional Three Kings celebrations, as adults and children alike enjoy the only ice theme park in Mallorca.
Until Monday, January 7, the Starck Marina will remain the only ice theme park in Mallorca, thrilling visitors with one of the largest skating rinks by the sea, along with a giant slide.
The ice rink is 30 metres long and 10 metres wide, and skates are given free of charge to everybody over four years old. Younger ones aren’t allowed to skate, but a special slide area has been set up so they don’t miss out on the fun.
For the more daring, there is a mammoth slide with three lanes to ensure that everyone can have a go at throwing a sled more than three meters high and sliding at full speed for 30 meters.
Entrance to the island’s theme park is free from 12 noon to 8pm.
And continuing with tradition, Port Adriano has its mythical and much-awaited giant ball where Santa Claus and King Melchior greet adults, children and even pets who want to give their letters before Three Kings on Sunday, January 6.
