Attraction in Jacquou Parc

Which attraction do your children want to go on first? Hard to choose! Will it be the big pirate boat or Les Montgolfières, the hot air balloons which take you to 10m height in a group of four people? The younger children like to go on the horses or in the small train or the bumper cars. Do you want to take it a little easier? Then go into one of the large sombreros and let yourself be driven. You should also try La Tour Magique, Les gabarots and Ali Airport. One of the newest attractions is Aéroplane 360: get on a plane and enjoy the antics. Les Chaises Volantes, the flying seats, are great for cooling down in on a hot summer day.

Ferris wheel La Grande Roue

You can already see it from afar: the Ferris wheel of Parc Jacquou. With a height of 25m. it stands out everywhere. Go together or alone in one of the cabins and go to a great height. You will have a beautiful view of the surroundings from the top. Small children are only allowed to go in it with a parent.


There are several roller coasters in the park. There is a roller coaster for young children which does not go very fast. For teenagers there are two other roller coasters: one that goes a bit faster and another in which you sit in a circle in a round wagon which rotates during the ride.
