Parc Asterix ( amusement parc, theme 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.

How to get there :

By car :
A1 Paris-Lille Highway.Take the " Parc Astérix " exit between exits n°7 and n°8. 30 km north of Paris.

By plane :
Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle Airport, FRANCE.
10 minutes from the Parc Astérix.

By train :
TGV : departing from many major French cities. Direct arrival at the Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle 2 TGV station.

By underground :
Métro/RER : B3 line, from Châtelet or Gare du Nord stations. Get off at Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle 1 station.

From Roissy Charles de Gaulle 1
Regular bus link to the Parc Astérix from Roissy coach station with Courriers Ile-de-France (CIF).
Departure every 30 minutes from 9.30am to 6.30pm
Return every 30 minutes from 4.30pm to 19H00 or 20H00 depending of park closing time.

Funny and French

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 EuroDisney? I preferred Asterix Park.

It's the same idea, lots of amusement, and... it's french.

Parc Asterix

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.
