It was perfect timing. We arrived right before the park opened, and left right after.
A great day out - very well organised - I liked the idea of having a seperate window for vouchers like this - unlike the Disney Parks where you can wait for up to an hour.
The email voucher needs to be exchange for another voucher at a dedicated counter which opens later than the usual one. We were given another voucher which could not be understood by the gate keeper and she needed to flag for the supervisor to override the gate to get in. One other thing, ages below 12 are only considered children in France.
Overpriced and understaffed as Disneyland but at least it is not overcrowded. Great rides for the teens. Worthy a visit if you are not short in time and traveling with kids.
Apart from roller coasters not too much else in the park
Having been wanting to go to this park for years, I finally got to go. Well worth it too. A very well done park with great themeing, decent shows, and a great assortment of rides, including the Tonnerre de Zues, a very fun wooden roller coaster thats's considered on of the best in Europe. Even some on and off afternoon rain didn't spoil the fun for me here for there's plenty to do in Parc Asterix.
We had tons of fun at Parc Asterix. The themes were great and performers moving about the park were enthusiastic and entertaining. We enjoyed the water show except that it got very hot since there was no sun shade over the seating area. We didn't get to go on Tonnerre de Zeus since it was broken down for most of the morning. The rest of the rides were a lot of fun and line ups were not excessively long (no more than 20 min), unlike some parks I've been to. We travelled to the park by taking the RER to Charles De Gaulle airport Terminal 1, then purchased a bus ticket at the Parc Astrix booth in the terminal which then took us the rest of the way. It was very easy and better than renting a car, and if you already have a metro pass that goes out to zone 5 (i.e. the airport), you might as well take advantage of it. If you like amusement parks, this tour is well worth it.
The transportation situation is an absolute disaster. We were told that the bus would leave at 8:15 and that we should show up 15 minutes beforehand. After much confusion upon arrival at the travel agency office, we were silently led a considerable stretch to an underground bus terminal far from the meeting point found on our itinerary. After sucking bus fumes in the darkened terminal for over 1/2 an hour with a large group of families, I asked our chain-smoking bus driver (who was far removed from our darkened and locked bus) when we were finally leaving, and he replied in the most rude and arrogant manner I've ever encountered. We left at 9:15. After a fantastic day in Parc Asterix, this very same bus driver left the families baking in the sun for over 1/2 hour past the clearly designated leave time of 18:30. When he finally found time to pull up, he managed to insult just about everyone who dared to ask him why he waited so long. He even found the time to tell me that I should go back to England (a country in which I, by the way, do not reside.) That he was still able to smoke so many cigarettes between insults is a minor miracle. I've never complained about anything online, but this man should not be working with foreigners, or people in general for that matter. It wasn't just the driver.The entire run-around from the travel agency is a minor disaster. Clear information, accurate pick-up and leave times and a bit of courtesy would be major improvements. That said, the park deserves 5 stars. It is lovingly conceived and executed. Just PLEASE do something to overhaul the transport arrangements.
Great park had a good time. Only drawback is having to wait for transportation, you need to spend the entire day there and we got tired a few hours before departure.
I took my 8 year old daughter to Parc Asterix during our visit to Paris. She really enjoyed herself. Does not compare to Disneyland, but she had a wonderful time (which is all that mattered to me).
What a great day out! It was packed with lots of rides and shows, something for everyone. The dolphin show was my favorite, I went to the show twice.
This was a great day, we really enjoyed ourselves. This is suitable for young and old. There was a slight hiccup with the voucher for the bus, but it was all sorted out with just one phone call.
It was fantastic. The parc is very well organized and beautiful. It's for all ages.
Kids loved the rides and we were lucky as weather was great that day.
