Vulcania, Saint-Ours

#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.

  • Visit to discover the history of the volcanoes of Auvergne and understand a little better the history of volcanoes in general. To do with children because the explanations provided are very complete but also easy to learn for younger. Some interesting attractions including the film relative to the Eagles inhabiting the Auvergne: "beautiful" remarkably film report.

  • The entrance is a bit expensive but there are than that negative :). The attractions are all great, the exhibitions are very well made for the general culture (volcanic preferably :)). I had the opportunity to go there many times as a kid and now this park has really changed (for the better). Too bad for the time because every time I went to the Park I not couldn't make the balloon of the domes :(. A major tourist destination of the region to visit absolutely!

  • 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.
