Petit Futé's opinion on VULCANIA
The only park in Europe dedicated to volcanoes, Vulcania offers many activities and shows for all ages in Saint-Ours.
The only park in Europe on the theme of volcanoes and the phenomena of the planet Earth, Vulcania offers you a family adventure combining emotions and discoveries in the heart of the Auvergne volcanoes. Each season, Vulcania park offers new attractions in addition to the existing ones (The Awakening of the Giants of Auvergne, Dragon Ride, Abyss Explorer...). In 2021, the monitoring and research laboratory of the "Namazu" team of seismologists will join the park. Based on a seismic fault with unstable activity, watch out for tremors. And to understand the seismic activities, nothing better than a... coaster! You are about to enter a dangerous zone, where earthquakes are a daily occurrence. In 2021, an icy wind blows over the park with the projection of a film on a giant screen about... the formation of snow! What are the consequences on the fauna and flora, and on human activities? The park offers activities for children aged 3 and over, including the Children's City, a real place of experimentation for little scientists.
In summer, the park will be set ablaze 10 times with night-time events ending with the fireworks show Dragon Time: on 14, 21, 27 and 28 July and on 3, 4, 10, 11, 18 and 25 August.
The park has plans: after Namazu, the largest planetarium in France will be opened at Vulcania in 2022.
On its website Séjours, Vulcania offers packages with entry to the park, accommodation and possibly other activities (Panoramique des Dômes, Aventure Michelin, PNRVA...).
