Is there a better way to entertain the family than to ride a hungry roller coaster or fall freely?
If you have a family of thrill seekers, find out more about amusement parks and theme parks less than a million miles from Luxembourg. Includes Disney, Europa-Park, and Phantasialand.
Warrigator Park- Maizières-lès-Metz
Gently riding on a monorail or carousel, or an anaconda roller coaster or a freefall space chute that disturbs your stomach is an ideal place for young children and teens to enjoy.
Illusionist Tim Silver will have two afternoon magic shows. No doubt you’re here that day, so the park has several fast food restaurants, a kiosk that sells drinks and snacks, and a restaurant grill.
Family tickets, which are open from late April to early November, can be purchased online for € 24-29 per person. Alternatively, you can book your Family Pack online for € 98.
Frepertuy City – Jean Menil
Returning to € 25,50 for adults (more than 1.4 million people), this park near Epinal has thrilling rides, but not the size of a warrigator. Still, the cactus, timber drop and Grand Canyon roller coasters are exciting.
With a steam locomotive and lots of water vehicles, you’ll feel the unique pirate theme that Captain Milling Sp and his parrot Coco are ready to welcome you. There are plenty of rides for younger children, and you can get old photos and fake tattoos.
Refuel burgers, pizzas and Mexican food. Open from late April to the end of September.
Diddyland – Morsbronne Levan
On the way to the Black Forest and Strasbourg, the park has several thrilling rides like Megadisc O, from elephant flights to bumper boats. There are only self-service restaurants and snack bars in the park, so I want to bring my own food.
The price reflects a more limited number of large vehicles, with an admission fee of € 21 (adults € 23) for those over 1 meter.
Dinopark – Teufelsschlucht
It’s not technically an amusement park, but it’s close enough to mention. Embark on a 620-million-year-old expedition to visit T-Rex and friends with 150 realistic dinosaur models. Great for children who are Diplodocus fans. There is a research camp where you can make and draw dinosaur figures.
Open from the end of March to the beginning of November, tickets cost € 13,50 for adults and € 10,50 for children ages 4-12. This is probably only worth it if your child is a dinosaur fanatic.
If you have too many stunning views of the Eifel region, head to this animal and amusement park.
Although less common to older children, newer vehicles these days include the Platzhirsch, which turns you upside down at a height of 50 meters, and the new free-fall tower. It’s also fun for small kids who can try waterways, disappear into ball pits, see falconry exhibits, and pet animals at the petting zoo (but you can’t pet bears). !)
Open from the end of February to the end of October on Easter and Halloween (and the wildlife section is open all year round), tickets range from € 37,50 to € 34,50 depending on your height.
Holiday Park – Hassloch / Pfalz
Teens will love Sky Scream and the Big FM Expedition GE Force rides. Toddlers can enjoy dancing fountains and surfing. If it’s raining, you can hide from the fire-breathing dragon of Falkenstein Castle.
There are also good choices of rides, water ski stunt shows between Halloween and summer and thematic events.
Open all year round (but mostly on winter weekends), tickets range from € 15,50 to € 42,50 per person.
Wild Park Crotten
Near Koblenz, this park is another park that combines animals and attractions. Bears and raccoons live in wildlife parks, and vehicles include roller coasters and wild waterways. The latest interactive family ride, Kunibert Castle, is where the haunted house meets the Laser Quest incident.
Many of the vehicles are self-propelled. You can also enjoy lunch at the park restaurant overlooking Moselle.
Open from April to early November, tickets cost € 22,50 for children under the age of 14 and € 24,50 for adults. Every Friday is Family Day and the whole family pays an admission fee of only € 21,50.
This place is a paradise for teenagers who can ride Star Trek at warp speed into the Bermuda Triangle. The attractions are rated from soft to intensive and are suitable for all age groups. You can watch the video below to see the attractions offered.
Open from April to early November, admission ranges from € 49.90 to € 54,90.

Propza Kuo / Prop the Hasselt
The visit to the Ardennes in Belgium would not have been completed without a day at Propzakuo. Riding is aimed at early teens and you will have the opportunity to meet the crew of Paw Patrol in addition to flying bikes and small roller coasters.
Open from April to early November, tickets cost between € 13,50 and € 28,50 per person (adults today are cheaper than they were two years ago).
Plopsa Hasselt has a huge indoor play area, as well as an outdoor climbing mountain and aqua playground. Older children may survive to the point of a free-fall lighthouse, but not so many for them.
Tickets cost € 12,99 for less than 1 meter and € 23,50 for more than 1 meter, open all year round.
Walibi – Wavre
Walibi, near Brussels, is not a bad option if you want to please everyone. Thrilling rides include the Cobra Jet Coaster, Dalton Teller (I won’t say any more), werewolves and vampire roller coasters, while the smaller ones include the carousel, minitrain, and gentler rides.
You can try traditional Belgian food and get burgers and pizzas. Of course, there are many places to sell french fries and waffles.
Tickets are 42 euros for adults, 37 euros for children (less than 1.4 million) and 8 euros for parking, but are currently not available until the park is reopened.
Meet Sea Lions and put parrots on your shoulders at this amusement park in Liege, where you’ll find elastic castles, toboggans, mini zoos, dog shows and much more for young children.
Admission to the park is only € 10 per person and an additional € 10 will be added to the attraction (so basically parents only pay the entrance fee). Open from March 31st to September 30th (and weekends in October).
Dolphin and seal shows, wild river rides and an old carnival carousel are worth visiting this park near Bruges. Most rides are for younger children, but there are also couples like Orca rides and Pirate Ship that older kids can enjoy.
There are indoor soft play and mini golf, and of course, sea animals to see (dolphin and sea lion show). The worrisome name MacDolphin offers burgers (presumably not including dolphins).
Tickets cost € 28,50 for children over 12 years old and € 25 for children and seniors between the ages of 1 million and 11 (discounts apply when booked online). From May to the end of August, during the weekends of September and during the winter, it is open at various times for the aqua show.

Toverland Amusement Park, a very impressive amusement park in Limburg, is divided into areas ranging from Land Van Tooth with torrents and roller coasters to Magic Forest, Troy Area and Merlin’s mythical Avalon. ..
Dive vertically in your backstroke and ride the fastest and tallest roller coaster in the Benelux, Troy or continue your quest for Merlin. In addition to Arabian and Celtic restaurants, there are plenty of restaurants for all ages, including water displays and interactive magic shows.
The online price includes a big discount, but we will pay 35 euros for those over 1.20 meters and 25 euros for children over 90 centimeters at the gate. You can check the business hours here.
Yeah, if this is a fun family holiday that everyone wants to remember, choosing one of the three big ones is a must. Experiencing these parks in one day can be a daunting task, so look for hotel deals that combine two or three day tickets.
About 2 million people visit the park each year, which is not surprising given the world’s fastest multi-launch roller coaster. Black mamba and tarocan aren’t for the timid, but there are plenty of upside-down rides, including new upside-down rides through the world of steampunk. Not really a place for young kids, this is a place to go if you have older teens who are looking for thrills (and don’t mind going on a ride without you) is.
It is open almost all year round and ticket prices vary from season to season. We will pay 57 euros for people over 12 years old and 47 euros for people 4-11 years old. It offers hotel deals.

Europa-Park, the second most popular park in Europe and the largest park in Germany (including a huge water park), has more than 100 attractions, including 13 roller coasters. Its main attractions include Eurosat Can Can Coaster, Paddington 4D Ride, The Dome of Dreams Falling Secrets, and Voletarium that makes you feel like you’re flying.
If all this sounds a little scary, there are spinning dragons and teacups, 4D magic cinemas, play areas, and restaurants that represent every corner of Europe. You can stay in front of a Spanish castle or a replica of the Coliseum of Rome.
There are magician shows, parades, cabarets and puppet shows.
It is a day trip ticket for people over 11 years old, open all year round and costs between € 47 and € 55 depending on the season. You’ll definitely see everything in one day, but you can buy a two-day ticket online.
Disneyland Paris – Marnervale

Europe’s number one amusement park, where you can fly Star Wars battleships, tip over in the Tower of Horrors, ride with the Pirates of the Caribbean, or sway on the Aerosmith roller coaster. Little ones can spend hours in the Toy Story area, meet Disney Princesses and eventually see the “small world”.
There are parades, shows and fireworks. This is the mother of all theme parks and is sometimes overwhelming for adults. You can stay at one of the theme hotels or at the new Village Nature (the encounter between Center Parks and Disney). It’s a good idea to book a two-day ticket that covers Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios.
Two-day tickets cost € 96 per child and € 104 per adult, but Disney has its own offer and many other suppliers offer holiday packages that combine hotels and tickets. So let’s find the best deals.
