  • We have not had enough one day to discover this complex. Far from being an amusement park, it is a real centre of volcanism. There are many information panels. Attractions: abyss explore (dive to 2500 m depth in a volcanic activity), the awakening of auvergne Giants (and if the volcanoes of auvergne were waking up?), the film on screen of 415 m² tornado alley (American experience with tornado hunters), the return of the dimosaures... In short everything is amazing. Small clarification: the majority of the attractions are underground do not distort the exceptional site of volcanoes. A little wait to some attractions (less than 30 min) but in August it is not catastrophic. Nice and quite shaded parking.

  • Great Park on the theme of volcanoes, can be fun and at the same time to learn a lot of things it's perfect!

  • Amazing facility but unless you are fluent in French you will not get value for money at €90 for a family of four. All signs, information and literature are written in French with no translations. The workshops, talks and experiments are all in French also. This is obviously understandable with it being in France but although there is audio equipment available for translations, it is limited. This should be made clear to non-Fench speakers before payment is accepted. That said, for the French this is a great place to visit.
  • I was pleasantly surprised by this park. There were lots of activities for kids of all ages and adults. We went there on a rainy day expecting it to be a waste of time. However, it was completely the opposite. This is a place you can visit on a rainy day with no problem and no loss of quality.
  • Far exceeded expectations. A fascinating place with plenty of choices of what to do and see.
  • I went there in 2012 in July. my friends and I we had such wonderful time there. the tickets weren't expensive at all
  • The Park is detailed and very interessting. But everything is written in french. Makes it difficult to understand and leaves the foreign tourists lost in translation.
