A new amusement park dedicated to volcanoes, Vulcania, combines scientific discovery and family tourism with a virtual tour and discovery trails to explore the history. You and your children will love the indoor simulators that take you on a flight over a super volcano in Mission Toba. Remember to visit the legends of the underworld on the Dragon Ride and face the harshest elements in the Angry Earth series. Ride the VolcanBul, an outdoor electric vehicle that explores the Chaîne des Puys, look at the geyser, and step into the greenhouse with sub-tropical and ancient volcanic environments.

  • Stayed for the late night openings available through July and August. We arrived at 4pm, had dinner and then took advantage of the lack of queues before heading to the Fireworks show at the end of the night. I'd advise you not to go to the show before the Fireworks or else you may not get a seat in the stand. The show was absolutely incredible. Plenty for kids to do throughout the park - we went with a 3yo and 5yo who really enjoyed the playgrounds too. Would definitely do the late opening again as we break our journey through France.
  • Extremely well done. 3 levels of Disney like entertainment, a great intermediate roller coaster (will feel like astronaut training for you amateurs out there, a blast for 7ish and up, A+ to the engineers), an actual classroom on volcanos that was fun, great architecture and landscape, great staff, steak and fries were yummy and priced reasonable... I got a kick out of the volcano sounds rumbling on the PA everywhere. Really well done gem for the family to spend a day if you're in the Claremont Ferrand area. Looks like a huge planetarium is coming in 2023 too. Bravo to management on continued investment. Thank you Vulcania for such an amazing time!
