    The choice to go there someday sullen, allowed us to be relatively quiet and enjoy a lot of slides to do and redo at will without queue... Good on the price of tickets for 5 people is a little strong, but in the end everyone was super nice; the duo, solo or in family slides are very different sensations guaranteed...

    We found this park j admit that after reading some reviews j was apprehensive a bit but my experience n was not negative. My children 14 and 15 years old that are popped. We chose to picnic and enjoy what it does not need to go in a picnic area. The slides are nice, we love slides as we can do without the buoy. The staff we met was charming. I think that the people who aren't are not satisfied should not attend this kind of place can be a spa or a hotel that would be to their level of requirement. I recommend for a d day bursts with ado.

    We came in late August family, luckily we had a discount for our tickets, then we realized that it was essential to take a VIP pass or day there would have been catastrophic. We had a very good day though! But beware ⚠️ young people dealing with infrastructure play between them, to grow in the water and down streams standing! Actually a child fell into the River, and to very scared, we have the help and out of our buoys because nobody was to monitor, much too busy to tickle down the River in water (they were 5 fun). Meanwhile our buoys fell so we had to go down in the water, we were yelled at because we were standing while two Minutes before even Mr. standing was trying to have fun with his colleagues downstairs! So yes's got it a full figure and Yes we told him we were going to call his Manager to signify a lack of oversight. BINGO! He hurried to tell all his colleagues to each point! There are no laughing at the mouth of the world and giving orders to security when even the employees do not respect! Big damper on it. Second little trouble, if you wear glasses! Good courage you need to remove them for each ride! A little more buoy to each attraction would go quickly to go and renew someone ' one, the infrastructure is becoming too old! Take your coolers to eat, restaurant disgusting! And if you eat no meat, for you in the menu will be fried, and that's all! No fish! And to finish the best is to come to an even number, because the rides are almost two but never all alone! Good luck for the rest!

    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

    Easily spend a whole day here but would recommend taking your own food as very expensive.
