Le Puy du Fou, Les Epesses

(8,500+ reviews on the web)
Theme Park Water / Amusement Park
The historical theme park Le Puy du Fou is immensely popular for good reason--it brings periods of history to life through performances of epic proportions. By day, you can watch as gladiators fight for their lives, musketeers engage in swashbuckling sword fighting, and Vikings rise out of the lake on their ship to ransack a village right before your eyes. At night, the main show comes alive behind the ruined castle, depicting 700 years of history. The Cinéscénie dazzles you with its award-winning pyrotechnics and exquisite choreography. More than 1,000 actors, including children and live animals, perform this massive show on an outdoor stage that many boast is the largest in the world. Headphones provide English translations of this and many of the main attractions. Shows sometimes sell out weeks or even months ahead, so book your tickets to the park and the performances well in advance. Put Le Puy du Fou and other Les Epesses attractions into our Les Epesses itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • All shows are outstanding live performances. Much more entertaining and educating than other amusement parks. Excellent value for the fee. The hotels in the park are roomy and have good restaurants.
  • Amazing.. amazing..wonderful..fantastic! Beautiful ! Everything ! Price? Worth it! Need more than 1 day to enjoy the full park.
  • Each show was spectacular. An excellent theme park without any of the usual theme park tackiness.
  • Absolutely one of the best parcs I have been too. Itsall in French but the shows are phenomenal. As well as the food quality, and friendliness. Super clean.
  • Truly amazing place. Rivals disneyland for things to do minus the rides of course! Dont worry about the language barrier, it is easy to understand the place if you dont speak a work of french. I do not know this place is not on the top 10 places to visit in your life. Visit it, it's mind bendingly huge....you won't regret it.
