Parc Astérix (France)

                                         
The Park Astérix is a theme park based on the world of Astérix (by Goscinny and Uderzo) with a hotel.
The park is near Paris, but in the south of Picardie. Saint-Quentin is 2 hours away from the Park Astérix.
                                                    
We love going to the Asterix Park because it’s funny and the attractions are beautiful. We particularly love the sensational attractions, which are simply thrilling!
The most sensational attractions are:
           
Tonnerre de Zeus (thunder of Zeus),
a wooden roller coaster
Transdémonium, a haunted house
filled with special effects

Goudurix (Justforkix) ...    
...a large steel multi-looping coaster      



La Trace du Hourra with cars
that reach 80 km/h
La Galère (a galley) a pirate boat

Oxygénarium, a large, twisting water slide
Menhir express, a Menhir-themed log flume ride
with a 13m high final drop. We finish very wet but it’s
fun, and it’s beautiful when the weather is fine.

Grand splatch, a River Rapids ride



















The other attractions include the Via Antiqua, the Roman Empire, Greece, “The Vikings”, “Throughout the time”, Gaul and Egypt (inauguration in 2012). They show places from the different Asterix comics.
