Visited with our two boys aged 4 & 7, both of whom we very confident in the water and reasonable swimmers.
We cycled with our picnic from our campsite up the road and paid our €70 for the family.
It was fairly quiet in the morning, but got busy later. Most of the slides did not have queues, but the one where you ride on rubber rings had long queues in the afternoon.
Oddly, there were no age limits on most of the slides, but when you got to the top sometimes the staff said they shouldn't really let our four-year old go down. The slides were:
Wide slide - advertised as being for whole family to go down, but in reality only let two people go down side-by-side. quite good fun.
Big drop: the most impressive slide. Children cannot ride on parents knees, and it's pretty scary even for a grown-up as you go over the jumps. Our 4-year old went down on his own, bounced from his bottom over into his tummy (banging his face on the slide in the process) and ended up crying in the water. The 7-year old enjoyed it and went down a couple of times.
Water chute: traditional curly water slide but sadly didn't go fast enough to be fun!
Rubber ring ride: great fun with boasters to keep you going fast down the track. Even the two-seater rings could turn backward which made it more exciting than similar rides (eg. At Alton Towers)
There was a pool with a "beach" which had a wave machine which wa switched on every 15-20 minutes. Our kids loved it and spent a lot of time in it.
The kids pool is a bit pathetic, but suitable for toddlers.
There is also a traditional rectangular pool which we didn't go in.
As well as the swimming stuff, there's a little playground and plenty of room for picnicking. There is a lake with swan led aloes which cost extra. The refreshment huts where we bought coffee and ice cream were very expensive - as you might expect!
We left at about 5pm, so felt like we'd had a good day out!

We were staying in a hotel Les Sables D'Olonne further down the coast without access to a waterpark so this seemed like an excellent day out. The park is easy to get to and is a good state of repair, it could be considered pricey but all days out in Vendee usually are. The kids loved the slides and to be honest I did too, it is a little windy but we lucky that it was a warm day.

70 Euros for a family of 4! Once you've paid to get in you still have to pay for the swan pedalos on the lake. Apart from the high water slides, we had comparable facilities on our campsite down the road. The kids had fun, but cooled down quickly with the cool breeze. To enjoy a whole day there you would need a hot day with little or no wind. Our kids had had enough after half a day, and there's not much else to do unless you're in the water. In all it's much too expensive especially if you already have a pool and water slides were you are staying.

The area for young children (under 8 who won't go on the big slides) is poor and we had a better childrens area at our campsite. My husband quite enjoyed the bigger slides but really it was a bit of a let down. There is a park on site but this is also poor. We paid 70 Euros to get in as they charge for 3 year olds. It was a complete waste of money for us. I can see families with children old enough to let loose and play would enjoy this park much more.
