This decade became known for the modernization of the facilities and continuous improvements
. And a large number of new rides were set up in the Park of Barcelona including a Superslide
and its "Trans-Mobile" drag lift, 180º Cinema, a new Big Wheel
called the "Panoramic", the Super bumper boats, Tibi-Trains, trampolines, Billagolf, Setidabo, the Space Ship, Twister, MotoSchoppers, etc. There were also exciting events such as Acrobatic Shows,
the opening of the Automaton Museum and a great poisonous snake exhibition.
Also, in 1986 the Park was fenced in and an entrance fee was charged at the gate for the first time. Then, in 1988 a great revamp to the Park began when the businessman, Javier de la Rosa
, bought the Park and set up a holding company called the Grand Tibidabo. A year later a general overhaul
of the Park took place with some rides disappearing and new ones being added. So, in 1989 a new Tibidabo called "The Magic Mountain
" was opened with new rides such as The Diavolo, The Piratta, Aladin's Magic Carpet and the 2-tier Merry-go-round as the star attractions.
