There’s a reason why Le Puy du Fou® has been voted the best amusement park in the world – it deserves it. Every year, hundreds of thousands of visitors and tourists come here in both summer and winter to enjoy a wealth of beautiful shows. More specifically, nearly 1.5 million visitors and it’s not over yet! The park has been receiving visitors for over 30 years and is still going strong.
New in 2016, the Dernier Panache (The Last Fight) is a great saga based on a colourful character, Charette de la Contrie, whose secrets only Le Puy du Fou knows! Discover his exploits, his fights, his feats of arms..

New in 2015, make way for Verdun, and more specifically, for the Lovers of Verdun. Relive the hell of explosions, the world of the First World War, through the writings of a soldier and his fiancée. Le Puy du Fou® still has many surprises in store for us!
This year, in 2014, we had the privilege of attending the Renaissance du Château (The Revival of the Castle), which was truly thrilling! As you pass by, the characters of the Castle come alive, talk to you and some ghosts still dance… Make no mistake about it, the castle is haunted to the delight of visitors.
