Theme Parks in the Vendée

Theme Parks come in all shapes and sizes and the Vendée is no exception. Whilst there is nothing on the lines of Alton Towers or Longleat the Vendée does have some of the finest Theme Parks of their kind in France.
The largest and best known Theme Park in the Vendée is without doubt the Puy-du-Fou. The Park offers two distinctly different experiences with the Grand Parc du Puy du Fou operating during daytime hours and the spectacular Son et lumière of the Cinescenie which operates after dark. Both are unique and are world renown. The daytime experience requires an early start if you intend to see all of the attractions and such is the popularity of the Cinescenie that booking well in advance is advised.

Theme Parks can also be based on the activities they provide, below are lists of the various types of theme with those attractions that can be found in the Vendee.
