#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.

  • The host is very nice. Hard bread is offered to feed the animals, who, accustomed to visitors, will be happy to visit you to fences. We also had the chance to cuddle and watch very closely the coypu in the company of a healer, very professional and friendly which assisting us in detail on this case. We also approached the wallabys closely back in their pen, always in the company of the benevolence of the healer. A great experience that to fully enriched our knowledge.

  • Interesting Place if you want to know something about vulcans and dinosaurs. I was there in June in an exchange with an French school. The weather was good and there were many things to do, like 4D cinema or an indoor playground. There is also an playground outside and a small forest with an "dinosaur track" where you can see "real" Dinosaurs. I had to give one ☆ minus, because we had to pay extra for the ballon trip (cause of the good weather). But ib conclusion: It was very nice and I am looking forward to visiting this place with my Family again. (Sorry for my bad English, but I'm German and I wrote in English for the people who don't understand German 😉. And yes I know that Google is translating the references automatically but I wanted to write in English😊)
  • 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!
  • I loved it.
