Le Puy du Fou, Les Epesses

(4.7/5 based on 8,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Return of two days in the park last weekend, a delight for the whole family. Great performances, a very clean Park, staff always friendly and helpful. A great adventure has renewed. Perfect stay in the hotel of the cloth of gold... Only little detail the eagerness of the server to rid our table during dinner at the restaurant of the two crowns, his eagerness was just a bit oppressive. Congratulations to the teams of the Puy du Fou

  • Brilliant been twice now will go again. Use the park app to plan your shows. Need three day pass to get everything done at a leisurely pace. Can be very busy in summer. 5☆
  • Loved this place. Been a good few years since my visit. Totally realistic
  • We went a couple of years ago, it was absolutely brilliant 😊. But we missed out on the evening show.We are in the area again this year and intend to go again as well as the day we will attend the evening show 🌞🌞🌞🌞 so looking forward to it. Not only the shows but the little gift and craft shops .....
  • Really good. Stumbled on this by accident. Superb shows. Very busy so you really need to plan what you want see but excellently done
  • Amazing theme park. Spectacular shows and special effects. Well maintained, everything looks new and it all works. Nothing here is done on a small scale. Audio translation was available and worked for all the shows (just the occasional FM interference issue). Well worth the money with the shows on throught the day and until late. Just plan your day around the show times and allow enough time to queue.
