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.

  • Reservation by internet easy with discounts for meals. Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the restoration. We wanted something else than a theme park type Astérix. Nice and spacious place, with lush vegetation and constructions of quality. Many world and waiting. We did 4 activities during the day. Quality shows. The car parks can be at the other end of the world looks like a crossing of the Vendée globe fortunately there is a shuttle.

  • An amazing day out for all the family. So much to see and do. Even if you don't understand French, or use a translation headset, at €15 A set quite a rip off!, you can still have a thoroughly enjoyable day out. Some forward planning us advisable as the individual shows start bang on time, plus there are so many to choose from you can't possibly see them all in a single visit. Best to buy your tickets online More than Three days in advance to get the best prices. We have now been twice, in consecutive years, and would not hesitate to go again. One last thing, plan on taking a picnic for at least one meal whilst in the park, as fast food outlets and restaurants are pricey, even for French prices. Enjoy!
  • 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.
  • I was sceptical and ready to be quite scathing about all the praise this place gets... IT'S GREAT! Don't miss it. The attractions are somewhere between fascinating (at worst) and absolutely gobsmacking. The "dernier panache", the roman games and the birds are stunning, don't forget your camera! We spent an entire day there without thinking we're bored or what shall we do next, and then it was over, time just flew by (just like the birds)
  • 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.
