Friendly theme parc Jul 07, 2005
Parc Asterix was a nice stopover for our trip to Italy. It´s the home of Asterix and Obelix, you know, the characters created by Goscinny en Uderzo. Unlike Disneyland Paris, the park opens only from April to October and has generally shorter opening hours. However, it is easily visited in one day, 30km north of Paris. From Holland it´s a 430 km drive. We slept in hotel Les Trois Hiboux, the theme hotel adjoining the parc. We arrived just before the high season...yeah, it was quiet. Service was good at the hotel, rooms were not overly big, but clean! The parc itself was swarmed with school classes. Very logical, as it was almost the end of the school year and all those kids needed some air obviously!
With six rollercoaster rides, we had a good afternoon! The sun let us down terribly, but that didn´t stop us from trying every rollercoaster in the parc.
We were ready for our next stop: Chateau Versailles.
Tonnerre de Zeus, a wooden roller coaster, top-rated in Europe
Goudurix, a large steel multi-looping coaster

When I was doing my study abroad program in France, we visited Paris. Our tutors gave us the choice to choose between the two theme parks in the area: Disneyland Paris and Parc Asterix. We Chose Parc Asterix because it was the Frencher (if that's even a word) of the two, and we didn't regret it.
Parc Asterix is a Theme Park that exists since 1989(almost as old as me) and is based on the Cartoons and Comics of Asterix the Gaul. It is very famous in France, and I'd say it is decently famous world-wide. This theme park's specialty are rollercoasters.
This park is open only from April to October, so if you're near Paris on those dates, you should visit it. Luckily, the park can be easily visited in a single day, so you'll only be paying the 35 euros admission fee once.
Between the rides that I tried and liked, you can find:
* Tonerre de Zeus, its a top notch wooden roller coaster.
* L'Oxygenarium which is a water slide in which you hop into some round thingies.
* La Galere which is nothing more than a swinging ship, but it is still a classic.
* Menhir Express, which is a classic water ride where you hop into a log and just let the flow take you (to a 13 meter drop).
