Parc Asterix is based on the popular comic and the heroic Gauls, Asterix and Obelix. This theme park offers a variety of roller coasters. They follow the adventures of the two adventurous Gauls as they encounter Roman legions. Visitors can meet Gaulish villagers, travel through 'Ancient Rome', marvel at the beauty of Greece, experience the Middle Ages and even shake hands with The Three Musketeers.
The most popular ride is Tonnerre de Zeus, which is the third longest wooden roller coaster in Europe. With a track length of more than a kilometre and a 30 metre lift, this is considered to be one of the most exhilarating rides in the world. The Goudurix is another popular ride. It holds the record for the rollercoaster with the highest number of inversions. Other exciting rides include the Oxygenarium, Transdemonium, Trace Du Hourra, Galere, Menhir Express and the Grand Splatch.
