To list the many awards won by the PUY DU FOU park would be enough to justify a diversion to the Vendée during your camping holiday in the Vendée or the Deux-Sèvres. The Puy du Fou has indeed been voted the best theme park in the world and the best park in Europe on several occasions. And Tripadvisor users have placed it in 2nd place among their favourite theme parks. That’s all there is to it! Not to mention the attractions and shows that have been winning awards for several decades. The latest award to date, the Fire Wedding show, a night-time phantasmagoria on the theme of the 19th century, received the Show of the Year award at the Park World Excellence Awards.
LE PUY DU FOU, AN AMUSEMENT PARK THAT PLUNGES YOU INTO THE HISTORY OF FRANCE
No one would have bet on such a success when the Cinescénie show was first performed in 1978 at the Château du Puy du Fou. However, 40 years later, the park attracts more than 2 million visitors every year. Its shows are still as attractive as ever and its attractions are a delight for families. The success is such that this year, a variation of the Puy du Fou is opening in Spain.
