The Sky Walk opens
On 27 January 2000 the Social Security Treasury (TSS) seized certain plots of land, buildings and facilities of the Company, by means of public auction. On 11 February 2000, the TGSS exerted the pre-emption right over the goods auctioned, awarding them in their favor. On 22 February 2000, the Barcelona City Council and the TGSS signed an agreement on the sale and purchase of properties executed by the Company. Despite the difficult times, 5 new children's rides were added. From 2002 the future of Tibidabo was studied and innovative, creative projects were planned for the general public. And in 2004, leading on from this, the Tibiclub pass card was created, access to the Park was improved with new panoramic view lifts, and the first Free Fall ride in Catalonia was opened to the public, followed by other rides such as the Balloons, the 4D cinema called Dididabo and the newly opened and spectacular Roller Coaster, which is unique to Europe. Along these lines, in 2007 the funicular railway was renovated and the upper level of the Park, which was extended up to The Florida Hotel, was open free to the public. The area is now called the Sky Walk and includes a statue in tribute to Dr Andreu (retired in 1996) and new entertainment facilities and activities such as a Children's Theatre, Slides and the Sky Building, where you can see a documentary film on the history of Tibidabo. From the Sky Walk you can enjoy the best views of Barcelona.
