Nice theme park, not too crowded despite summer hols, few queues, easy layout, lots for little ones. One request: taps for filling water bottles. Selling water in plastic bottles is sooo passe!

A small park but a lot of activities for younger children, teenagers and adults ! A good restaurant near the park. It's better when it's sunny.

Always a great day out for families with younger children. Larger picnic area and reasonable admission charges that make a day out very affordable. Great fun, good rides....and they are also investing. Two great new rides for 2016..

We finally found the place! It is NOT obviously signed, one minute it is signed with parc Papea signs then parc des attractions, then nothing, so you need to keep a good lookout. Once there though this is a perfect park for children up to...More

Brilliant park for people of all ages and low cost compared to many similar theme parks. Love the addition of water slides but disappointed our son's swimming shorts didn't comply with the lifeguard's requirements for "Speedos" and no suggestion to try the shop (which we...More
