Lost in the depths of provincial France it draws hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. Spread over several hundred hectares are castles, princesses, knights… From the very young to the very old, everybody joins in the fun and takes the plunge into the Middle Ages. With their epic battles and fairy tale adventures, the many spectacular shows have earned the Puy du Fou the title of best amusement park in the world. And as the park is expanding in size, the concept is now exported all over the world. A look behind the scenes of an incredible success.
