It was the BEST day of your ONE week in Paris. Both my children enjoyed to the hilt. My Son was overjoyed to see the Rides and Shows. My three year old daughter had more than her share of fun. This Park is very very exciting and filled with adventure. We purchased a lot of souvenir. The park staff is friendly. The roller-coasters are awesome and the Demon Ride is an experience to remember. The Water rides are equally good. For a person who loves Asterix, the different sections are a real treat.
If the choice is between 'Park - de- Asterix' and Disneyland..... I would highly recommend 'Park Asterix'. Disneyland is CROWDED. The waiting period for EVERY ride is 30 minutes. The Shows are 'out-dated'. Considering the fact that Paris is usually cloudy at this time of the year, one would expect Disney to make some arrangements to protect tourists from the pouring rain...... but NO NOTHING. Most of the '30-minute' shows were actually 10 minute shows with a 20 minute 'Introduction'.
The one tiny shop selling raincoats was located far far far away and we spent 45 minutes in locating it. Many of the rides are very ordinary and the shows have very little value in terms of 'novelty' or 'surprize'.
I have already recommended this tour to my friends.
The Guide was very friendly and jovial. He brought the stories to life. So interesting was his narration that even my nine year old son listened with rapt attention and understood many of the stories.
I personally had read about the assassination of King Henry and the 'Beheading' of King Louis XVI by 'guillotine' but the guide explained it such a wonderful manner, he brought emotions into the tale.
The walking tour also took us to many places that we would otherwise have NOT gone in search of. Heard the stories of the 'Notre-Dam' lock and the 'Barber- Butcher' for the first time. Walking at a leisurely pace and admiring evening time Paris and listening to un-heard-of tales is the best way to spend an evening.
