Great theme park aimed at people of all ages and degrees of lunacy from very sedate pink flamingo peddle boats to the most incredible, adrenaline pumping loop the loop roller coaster. Nicely landscaped and plenty of amenities. Quite pricey and 5 Euros for car parking was a bit steep. Restaurant facilities could be better, probably best to take your own picnic.

We visited Bagatelle during the summer holidays 2013. We live on the south coast and it was a nice day trip by ferry and car. Easy to find and less than an hour's drive from the port.

The park is a mixture of old and new rides, and has a big loop the loop roller coaster. It also has smaller rides and some shows, including a penguin and seal show. It costs £19 (22.50 euros) per person and is worth the money. The queues were at their longest around 3pm, so I'd say go for the most popular rides earlier or later. Surprisingly, the longest queues were for the water rides, although they were not really worth the wait. The pirate ship, roller coaster and the first roller coaster-type ride on the left as you go in were our favourite rides with reasonable length queues.

This is not Thorpe Park or Chessington, but is good for all ages and worth a visit. :)

We went to the Park last week and as expected it was absolutely heaving...

We managed to get on about 5 of the rides (in the 5 hours we were there), surprisingly enough the main whiteknukle ride Le Triops was one of the shorter queues. This park is aimed at younger families I would say, it is OK but not up to the standards of say Chessington, or Legoland in the UK. It is also very expensive in my opinion... we paid €90 for a family of four and it is just not worth that amount of money. That said we did have really nice creams at €2 each. Le Triops was good and worth a try... it did make me feel quite ill though!

This is an excellent day out for the whole family with so much to do and you don't have to wait too long in between rides. Taking a picnic is a must as you will queue for hours, even just for chips and the food is not that great.

We arrived as the parc opened for our family day out (2 adults and 9yr old and 7 yr old) and we stayed until it closed. We had such a fantastic time with so many rides we all went on together. It's not really a big thrill ride theme park although there is one big ride which goes upside down and it looked pretty scary! This was one of the highlights of our holiday. The parc is very relaxed about people taking in their own picnics, with a picnic site near the car park or you can take it in with you! One thing not advertised is that the parking is 5€ extra but don't let that put you off.
