Parc Astérix, Paris
Asterix and his Friend, Obelix are two Gallics who lived in Britany and who refused to surrender at Cesar after the defeat of Vercingetorix.
They are drawing heros and an amusement park is dedicated to them.
Price : 31 Euros (adult) 23 Euros (3 to 12)
An example of success for a French style amusement park.
I don't know if you know this cartoon but it's the most famous in France. This park in the second biggest them park in France (after EuroDisney) and not very far from Paris, 30 km in the north.
If you like big rollercoasters (like me) and want to see dolphins, you'll prefer this one than eurodisney.

Travelling with kids, while in Florida I had to go to Disneyworld.
In France, why should I search for American culture (and business) to go to Disneyland? I preferred Asterix Park.
It's the same idea, lots of amusement, and... it's french.
it is SOOOOOOO much better than disneyland, smaller queues, better rides and cheaper entrance prices.
it has one of the scariest rollercoasters in europe, the longest rollercoaster in europe etc
it is MINT!!!!!!!!
it is based around the asterix books by goscinny and uderzo so make sure u brush up on your knowledge of the gaulish village b4 u go!!!!!
For those of you who love amusement parks, another one you can visit is Parc Asterix which isn't too far from the centre. You can get a one-day pass or a two-day pass. We got a one-day pass and found it was quite enough to see most of it (although we were lucky since there weren't too many people!)
You can buy the tickets before you get there from some metro stations which included a free bus transfer from the metro station to the park and back.
