Siblu in the Vendee, Puy Du Fou was one of the places we planned to visit, having read about it back in the UK.
It is a huge theme park, but rather than rides there are spectacular shows and authentic villages to see and experience. If you click on the link above it has a fabulous video summing it up! We were able to book it via Siblu reception, who offered the same discount we would have got booking via the Internet. The great thing is that the tickets are then valid for some months (ours said Apr to Sept), so you are not tied to a date, just in case the weather or plans changed.
|Amazing bird show!|
The Ball of the Phantom Birds and
The Secret of the Lance
The doors normally open 30 minutes before each show, but don't worry about kids getting fidgety, they very cleverly have little warm up acts to keep them entertained, and I have to say they were pretty hammy but very funny, including taking people out of the audience to embarrass :)
The shows themselves were incredible, amazing, jaw-droppingly fab. The costumes, scenery and special effects were superb, and the acting by the actors and all the animals left you smiling and often wondering "how did they do that"? The fact that they were all in French didn't detract from their entertainment either - you could hire headphones to translate - but we didn't feel it necessary.
I cannot recommend this show highly enough, they are planning a Christmas spectacular too, which is certainly on my radar at the moment!
One final cheesy family picture to top it off, Scarlett took this whilst we were waiting for the Roman spectacular, and yes I am restraining Jasper as it suggests haha!
