Parc Astérix is a large theme park just 20 miles north of Paris which celebrates popular French comic book heroes, Astérix and Obélix. The park contains 39 attractions based on the much-loved Gallic duo and you’ll find plenty to enjoy for the whole family, ranging from thrilling rollercoasters such as the 40-metre high Oziris to a more gentle cruise through the air on Aérodynamix for younger children. Be sure to visit Discobelix, the park’s latest addition and brand new for 2016, to take a unique trip on a giant discus! Although famous for its rides, the park also offers you the chance to experience a variety of shows including live recreations of scenes from the books, such as an epic battle between the Gauls and the Romans.
Parc Astérix is open from 2nd April until 2nd November 2016, typically from 10am until 6am, occasionally opening longer. However, make sure you check the official website as the park is sometimes closed on weekdays. General admission by buying tickets on the day is €47 and €39 per child aged up to 11. However, you can take advantage of various discounts if you buy online and visit between specified dates. The most convenient airports are Paris Charles de Gaulle or Orly and, if you’re hiring a car, you can take the A1 motorway towards Lille and be at the theme park in half an hour. Alternatively, you can take a Parc Astérix shuttle bus from the ‘Parc des Loisirs’ desk at Charles de Gaulle airport which will deliver you there in 30 minutes.
For the adventurous, get into the Gallic spirit by trying out the Wild Boar Kebabs at the park’s Restaurant du Lac!
