This beautiful family theme park in the middle of nature opens its doors for a new season on Saturday June 27, 2020. Let's have a look at the health protocol set up to face the coronavirus epidemic and the novelties this new season has in store.

La Mer de Sable is the family theme park par excellence. Located at the heart of a sand plain, this 50-year old park has everything to seduce children and adults. These past few years, the park renews every season to seduce even more. New attractions, new shows, new events, it's time to grab your schedule and prepare yourself to play cowboys and Indians.

Situated in a beautiful location in the Ermenonville forest, the Mer de Sable will transport you to other time periods and places for incredible adventures.

In order to make the best of this family day in the best conditions possible, the park has made a few measures:
  • Distancing measures in the queues, rides and shows
  • Facemask recommended in the park, and mandatory from 11 years old in queues, restaurants, stores and some rides
  • Contact zones cleaned up and disinfected regularly, in compliance with the health scheme validated by the prefect (queues,rides, bathrooms...)
  • Hand sanitizer availble in bathrooms, queues and points of sale
  • Plexiglas-screen at checkouts
  • "Contact-less" payment in all points of sale
  • Take-away offer in restaurants
  • Terraces and picnic areas refurbished

 Young and old adventurers can enjoy three amazing worlds:

  • The Wild West world, “Aux temps des Pionniers

  • The mysterious and colorful world, “La Jungle

  • The Mexican universe
    Last year, the park created a new themed area. This is a genuine Mexican Pueblo that is now available, a theme perfectly sticking to the natural park's universe. 2 food areas are also opened in this new universe including a sandwich store named Poca'Petito and Hacienda with its terrace featuring a view on a sand dune. Of course, these two areas will serve Mexican dishes.

The 3 latest attractions open in 2016 at La Mer de Sable:

Disco Loco
Disco Loco expects you in the universe of the Mexican Fiesta. When you ride this “Disk’o,” you’re in the middle of a whirlwind, as the name Simoun (a hot desert wind in the Sahara) suggests. 24 adventurers hop aboard and are strapped into their seats around a large disk, facing outward. The disk runs along a U-shaped track while spinning around.
Must be at least 1.2m (about 4 feet) to ride

Chiqui'to
