Angkor, la última atracción de Port Aventura
Port Aventura Entertainment profits went down 5% for 2013 despite a 5% viusitor surge.

The theme park operator bagged proceeds totalling 13 million, down 18% over a year prior.

The firm's earnings hit the 182 million mark against 181.22 million a year earlier. The visitor count nearly reached bearly 4 million. The facility fell short of matching an all-time high on record: 4.1 million visitors for 2007, before the economic downturn struck.

It should be noted that the venture capital fund Investindustrial has a majority stake of 50.01% in Port Aventura Entertainment. KKR clings in turn on to a 49.99% stake.
