Vulcania, Saint-Ours

3.1
#1 of 19 in Childrens Museums in Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes
A new amusement park dedicated to volcanoes, Vulcania, combines scientific discovery and family tourism with a virtual tour and discovery trails to explore the history. You and your children will love the indoor simulators that take you on a flight over a super volcano in Mission Toba. Remember to visit the legends of the underworld on the Dragon Ride and face the harshest elements in the Angry Earth series. Ride the VolcanBul, an outdoor electric vehicle that explores the Chaîne des Puys, look at the geyser, and step into the greenhouse with sub-tropical and ancient volcanic environments.

  • Such a curiosity in the middle of nowhere, this park looks like an Enigma to me. Starting from an interesting and innovative concept it seems unfortunately tentative... past the 3 or 4 dynamic projections and permanent exhibitions, the beauty of the site gives me a taste of incompleteness. Visited 8 years ago, I have found no changes or new features, worst I am annoyed me. And the recurring theme eventually tired, so no surprise to wait. In short to see at least once to have a good time if you are passing through the area...

  • Vulcania is not your typical kind of amusement park. Almost all of the attractions are under ground level, making it enjoyable when it's hot or when it rains. Waiting times or not too long as most of the attractions have a good throughput. I recommend the park to parents with children age 6 to 12. During summer time, there are events on multiple occasions. Check these dates as it offers extra value for money.
  • Great and original park. Only small problem, there is a lot of people waiting at the start of every attraction but most of them are worth the wait in my opinion ( except the abyss explorer ). Most of the attractions are underground and are 4d experiences which I've never seen before. Overall this is a great park to learn about volcanos and also see/feel things you've never seen/felt.
  • Nice place for children to discover volcanos but there is a long queue!
  • Great entertainment park to discover the area. A lot of 3D movies. A surprisingly interesting place for kids.
  • Spectacular. Mostly oriented towards younger ages.
