Nigoland: What’s new in 2018

Elected by its peers as the 3rd best theme parks in Europe, Nigoland celebrates its 30th anniversary last year. The park will be open from March 31 to November 4, 2018 and featured two new attractions.

First of all, Nigoland is a family story: the Gelis-Caron family continues 6 generations of tradition of show, circus and funfair. After starting in the circus business in 1838 with Frédéric Caron, the circus manager and trapeze artist, and his brother Philippe Caron, clown, the family never left the entertainment business.

We find them again from 1925 on the roads of France at the head of the most beautiful funfairs in the country before settling down in 1987 when the brothers Philippe and Patrice Gelis created Nigoland on the family lands.

A family tradition not likely to stop, as shows the arrival of Rodolphe, Phillipe’s son and Valentine, Patrice’s daughter, running the park in early 2017.

Today, with about forty attractions including 12 thrilling rides and 28 that are kids-friendly for kids under 1 meter, its 8 restaurants and its Hôtel des Pirates 4*, Nigoland has been elected by its peers the 3rd best theme parks in Europe before some major international groups.

Nigoland welcomes you on a 40-acre field at the heart of the Forêt d’Orient in the Aube department and invites you to visit the 4 themed villages:

  • The Village Suisse [Swiss Village] with 7 attractions

Speaking of attractions, little by little, Nigoland wanted to get rid of its image of theme parks for kids with its 27 attractions available for kids under 1-m tall, and for a few years now, it offers new thrilling rides. We find the world’s highest rotative drop tower: the Donjon de l’Extrême inaugurated in 2016. This attraction allows the boldest visitors to enjoy a 360° panoramic view over the park before a vertiginous 100-m drop stopped by magnets at the end.
