  • I was disappointed on my last visit last summer, a lot of people, quite high price, minimum queue time of one hour before you can go down a slide, we spend more time to wait to enjoy the attractions.

  • The Park is big, spacious, with several attractions at all. However, the most part queues are in the shade and wind, so when it's wet, it was soon very cold. Especially since the waiting time is about 1 h see 2 h. We spend our afternoon standing in line is quite unbearable

  • A lot of security and facilities in good condition. Plan to spend the day in order to amortize the cost of the ticket. There is for the whole family but do not hesitate to book a sun bath in order to you have or take a NAP in your little ones. Attention in high season it's 30 minutes 1 hour queue to access the attractions and is the major problem.

  • Not sure why this park is getting such bad reviews. Friendly staff, great rides, clean loos! Could probably do with a bit of TLC. We went at the end of August and I believe the French kids were back at school so this may have reduced the queues. One tip.. when you go to get the locker key deposit back, go at least 30 minutes before the park closes. You don't have to leave early but it means you won't have to queue for ages.
  • What a joke and "hit and run" rip off! One star is too much. Absolutely appalling. Place is falling apart and desperately needs an overall. Changing facilities and other places reek..Staff is superbly rude. Completely overpriced for the few rides they have. On top you are charged extra at every turn you take e.g lockers 5 EUR etc Rides for kids below 1,20 extremely limited. Most of the better rides require 2 people making it a real hassle if you are a couple with small children and have to take turns. Clear no go.
  • Total disapointment, high prices, tourist unfriendly, too much people, long queues on everything Recomended: buy VIP, come early or never, learn french This was second aquapark we visited on our vacation and we expected a lot by photos on leaflat from hotel. Price for my grown family was 4x 28€ which was 5 times more than in first park in Germany. We arived at 13 so there was no lockers left. First 100 m in park was no place where we can place our towels and leave bagage. One sunbed cost 4€. Main reason why we chose this resort was the amount of tobogans so we went to one of them. Because we are not used to queues we have no idea that we had to choose which ones to ride. In 5 h I tried only 4 of them so it was literally 7€ for one ride. I had no idea that there can be bought VIP because there was not a single sign is in english. After 2 rides hunger striked and we went to restaurant. One was already closed so we bought small food in their fast food. I am sorry for every cent we spend there. Fries was awful and burger the same. Also there was no sunshades to hide under. At the end when I write down my complains on their opinion tablet, it did not even display it because it was to negative. Not coming again maybe not even to France
  • Absolutely brilliant. Clean, good facilities and fun for all ages.
  • Easily spend a whole day here but would recommend taking your own food as very expensive.
