"The best show I ever seen" Puy-du-Fou by vinc_bilb

Puy-du-Fou Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 20 photos


After The Mont Saint Micel and 3 hours by Car (south), we arrived in Vendée for 2 days. After the cultural session, we intended to relax in the most famous historical theme park, called Le puy du fou (official web site in english) (The podium of insanity).

The unexpected best show I ever seen

>>> Personnal rating: 5/5

Well, how to say that: the idea of an historical theme park, based on the history of the Vendée region could be attractive for ... some passionate.

But it's a wonderful success, focusing the energies of the whole region and the show grew into a huge spectacular trip through 2,000 years of history.

The Cinescenie spectacle is the best show I ever seen, including the impresive firework display.

The park brings in some 1.2 million visitors every year, making it the second most popular attraction in France after Euro Disney.

A travel in the time

With the Puy du Fou Park, travel in the worlds and times have disappeared... but you'll not be alone. The crowd is directly a consequence of this great success (but, as the organization is very efficient, we didn't have to face to major wastes of time).

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Amazing, the Cinescenie show is ... WOOH
  • Cons:Crowded (but OK), almost nothing outsite the Park
  • In a nutshell:an exciting glance at the history ... with fun, thrills and emotions.
