OK, so you didn't come all the way to Europe to visit an amusement park. But when there's one nearby, it might just be the perfect way to avoid history and culture overload — especially if you have little ones in tow. Let loose at Isla Mágica, Seville's sizeable theme park that's suitable for all ages. The park is divided into eight 16th century Spanish colonial-themed areas, which feature rides like the Igazú log flume and the El Jaguar roller coaster. You'll also find plenty of shops, shows and restaurants at the park. A small water park dubbed Agua Mágica is slated to open in the summer of 2014.

One TripAdvisor reviewer suggests getting to the park with a plan of attack: "If you arrive early, go to the main rides (eg. Ciklón, El Jaguar, El Desafío, Anaconda, Iguazú, Orinoco) first as they will get crowded later in the day."

Isla Mágica opens at 11 a.m. on most days between April and October, and closing times range from to 7 p.m. to midnight. Hours and days of admission vary quite a bit, so check the park's website before planning a trip. Full-day adult admission costs €29 EUR (about $40 USD); full-day tickets for children ages 5 to 12 cost €21 EUR (about $29 USD); and kids younger than 4 or less than 3 feet tall can enter for free. Discounted rates are also available for afternoon-only or evening-only admission. The theme park is located about 2 miles northwest of El Centro, on the former site of the 1992 World Expo. You can walk to Isla Mágica from the La Macarena district by crossing the Barqueta Bridge or you can ride Tussam bus lines C1 and C2 from El Centro to the park's front entrance.
