Ideas for families

Parc Astérix

On the road to the Gaulish village! Rides, open air shows, big thrill attractions and a lot of fun for little Gauls at just a 2-hour drive from Eurotunnel Terminal.

Parc Astérix is a mix of 47 attractions and shows set in 6 unique worlds (Gaul, the Roman Empire, Ancient Greece, the Vikings, A Journey through Time and Ancient Egypt). Parc Astérix is a dizzying adventure aboard OzIris, the attraction of the Pharaohs, or on Goudurix, the rollercoaster with 7 loops ; emotions for Little Gauls in the Forest of Idéfix, and even thrills for the whole family with Pégase Express!

Sanitary measures of the highest standards have been put in place across all the attractions, hotels, restaurants and shops: click here for more information.

Open air shows

Parc Astérix’s lively, comical shows will make you cry with laughter, gasp in surprise and maybe even shed a tear. « Révérence » at the Théâtre de Poséidon and « A Ruckus in the Farmyard » at the Théâtre du Barde will remain open.

The two indoor shows, « Gauls v Romans: the match » and « Chronos; magic and illusions », as well as the Gaul Parade and street performances, will not take place to prevent large crowds gathering.
