“Quite a few people recommended Puy du Fou when we...”

Written on: 26/08/2010

Quite a few people recommended Puy du Fou when we arrived in Vendee so we decided we had to see what the big deal was. Although the shows themselves were all very good (the gladiator and bird shows were by far the best in our humble opinions), we were significantly less impressed with the organisation of the park itself. For starters, it should be called Puy du Queue - we felt like we spent most of the day either waiting to get into a show or waiting for it to start, rather than actually watching the shows. The 5 main shows were scheduled much less frequently than I would have expected (only 2-3 showings per day) which put us under a lot of pressure to get to the next show otherwise we would not have another chance to see it that day. As for the non-show part of the park, we can't actually say much about it since we never really had time between rushing from show to show. Our gut feel, however, was that there was wasn't much else to see or do apart from visit a bunch of themed souvenir shops. Overall, we'd still recommend a trip there even if it's just for the cultural experience of seeing a truly french theme park (i.e. unlike Disneyland Paris) in it's full artistic glory... just expect to spend a lot of your day sitting around waiting for things to happen.
