The French theme park Le Puy du Fou is located in Les Epesses, between Nantes and Poitiers. It offers various shows in terms of fencing and equitation, stunts, pyrotechnics and other special effects. In this sense, it is absolutely unique in Europe. From Vikings raiding, knights' duels, fencing battles or Roman gladiators in an arena – everything seems totally real.
The park is ideally embedded in nature as well as maintained. In the evening, the highlight is the Cinescenie show with a combination of music, dance, parade, 3-D video projections, water features and fireworks. In 2017, 2.26 million visitors were welcomed in the park.
Its uniqueness is also a slight negative, as the park lacks variety. Apart from the shows, a medieval farm and a few animal paddocks there are practically no other attractions. Adrenalin junkies would be at the wrong address here, while the public transport connection also requires improvement.
