My girlfriend and I went here whilst touring France with a tent and a car. It looked such fun. When we saw the price we was shocked. Around 70 euros for the two of us. My girlfriend really wanted to go and it was a very hot day so I thought what the hell. Big big mistake. The queue to... More

We spent one day here - 2 adults and 2 children (aged 6 and 2), it cost over €70 for us all, and they even charged our 2 year old €10 even though he was just about the entry height!! It was a bad experience, firstly if you weren't over 110/125cm tall you were very limited on what you could... More

This place is pretty expensive, it's 25 euros entrance, then you also have to fork out if you want sun loungers, lockers etc. To be honest there were 6 of us & we were not sure on how many lockers to get, we got 1 between 2 when you can easily fit twice as much in, so I would say... More

€193 to get in (4 adults 4 kids), €60 for 3 burgers and 1 large pizza - what a rip off ! The worst thing was having to pay adult prices for a 9 yr and 10 yr old because they were just over 140cms tall. And yes they will make your kids stand next to a height chart when... More

This parc has some great slides. However it is expensive to get in, poorly managed and you have to queue for everything. When we were there slide queues were averaging 45 - 60 minutes each, so you could not ride all the slides in the time that the parc was open unless you forgot about lunch and everything else bar...

This was our first experience of an Aqualand of the Europe wide chain, and we should have stayed at the beach. There are not enough rides even if the park is only 2/3rd full as on our visit and you easily surpass Disney length cues of over an our - for a 20 second slide down a tube. And another... More

Excellent park, but get there before opening so you can rent the red rings you need to beat the queues. You can take your own food and erik, which helps keep the cost down. 25euros per adult and 18 per child, so it can be a costly trip especially if you add the parking (4 euros) and sun lounger rent...
