Puy du Fou, Les Epesses

4.7
#1 of 352 in Theme Parks in France
The historical theme park 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.

  • Fantastic. Highly recommended for all ages. Very busy ,but well organised.Full of colour and amazing visual effects.  more »
  • On the summer is the best time to go to this amusements park. The shows are given in an open air or in a building, very exciting. To compare the fee of the entrance it is worthy to spent a day there.  more »

  • This was incredible! Really enjoyed everything😍 it’s quite hard to visit all the shows during one day but we visited as many as possible. Definitely recommend this place to both adults and children!
  • Loved it well worth the visit. Had a great time. Food on site awful so take your own. We managed to watch 5 shows all great performances highly recommend
  • Wow. This place is an amazing experience for the whole family. The park itself is beautiful and full of little villages with authentic shops like the old days. With crafts, food and a glimpse to agent times. The shows are spectacular - as an adult i had at least 30 'wows' today.. Be ready to run between shows to make it from to the other, and if you want to see everything you'll need 2 days. Though in my opinion 1 day is enough (:
  • This is the best theme park I have ever seen. Brilliant !... really impressed, professional, on a massive scale and did I mention brilliant ?
  • It was good with the way things were displayed, and the effort that went into setting them . I found that quite often, the wait to get into see things was longer than the actual show. The bird show was a definite highlight for me. It is a good idea to plan your day before hand and to factor in time for queues.
