Description: Parc Asterix is a traditional theme park based around the classic French cartoon character “Asterix”. And of course it is more French than Euro Disney!

Our recommendations: Start with the ‘Spies of Caesar’ ride, a leisurely pedal around a track built high above all the attractions. This is a good way of working out where everything is. Make sure you have a go on the Goudurix rollercoaster which turns you upside down no less than seven times during the ride! If you are staying in Central Paris you can take a special shuttle from The Louvre, departing at 9.45 am for for a return price of €20* and €16* (entry tickets NOT included).

For the children: Provides a nice balance for all ages with wicked rides for the older children, whilst there are gentle rides, sideshows and activities for the really young ones.
