Parc Astérix is looking forward to a new season in 2024. And this special year, which celebrates the 65th anniversary of Asterix and the 35th anniversary of the Park, promises many surprises. A new attraction, a musical and a new float are all on the program, and we tell you all about it.

Parc Astérix, the park of the irreducible Gauls, which is constantly renewing itself, awaits you for a new season full of surprises. It's worth noting that 2024 is a year like no other, celebrating the park's 35th anniversary.

In 2023, Parc Astérixwelcomed 2,815,000 visitors, making it the second-busiest theme park in France. With its 50 attractions and shows, divided into 6 themed universes, this park has been immersing us in René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo's famous comic strip since 1989.

This year, the park continues to innovate. After thrilling us with Oziris in 2012, delighting families with its Dogmatix forest in 2014, releasing new shows in 2015, unveiling Discobelix in 2016, tousling our hair with Pegasus Express 2017 , taking us to new heights withAerolaf in 2018, celebrated the arrival of the Hôtel Cité Suspendue and then the Quais de Lutèce, took off with the Tonnerre 2 Zeus and the dives in 2022, and hit the big time with the Toutatis universe last year, now the park is unveiling a new attraction and even its first musical.

What's new?

The Edifis Tower

The new attraction, which reaches a height of 40 metres, is located in the section dedicated to Egypt. Edifis is undoubtedly best placed to manage this project in his own unique way. To facilitate work at height, he imagined an innovative crane with several arms, capable of lifting and assembling the stones while ensuring precise layout. Just imagine, you'll be suspended up to 40 meters high during all three phases of the adventure: the ascent, the rotation offering a 360-degree view, and finally, the descent. How about it?

On Saturday June 1, the Edifis Tower was inaugurated by its talented architect (or not), Edifis himself, aka Jamel Debbouze, the godfather of this new attraction.

The new P'oz Kebab restaurant

The Egyptian zone has been enriched by a new gourmet spot that's sure to delight kebab lovers! P'oz Kebab, as its name suggests, offers kebab meat specialties. The menu costs €14.90 and includes a turkey and veal sandwich, French fries and your choice of beverage.

The 1st Parc Asterix Musical

Discover the adventures of Groupidupianix and Sérotonine, where one dreams of becoming Gaul's most renowned bard and the other of breaking tradition by becoming the first druidess. Their quest is fraught with pitfalls, but together they are determined to make their magic shine. Joined by 9 talented singers and actors, they will bring to life new melodies by Vidal & Salvia, specially created for this unique show at Parc Astérix. After three years of preparation, the 600-seat Panoramix theater is now vibrating to the sound of these compositions. Prepare to be dazzled by a 26-piece set and over 80 revolutionary costumes, the work of experts from all over Gaul. We loved discovering this hyper-dynamic show. With its lively music, insane energy from start to finish and talented singer-actors, don't miss out.

The Défilé Gaulois and its new Hispanic float

The park's parades return this year with a new float to brighten up the parade. In addition to the drakkar on which the characters ride and the imperial float of the illustrious Caesar and that of the legendary Cleopatra, there's the Hispanic float. This handsome wagon features the famous cartoon characters Pépé, Soupalognon and Crouton, accompanied by an animated bull.

To be (re)discovered at Parc Astérix :

The Toutatis Festival

Toutatis, that's the name of the crazy roller coaster opening at Parc Astérix in 2023, an attraction that spans over a kilometer, speeds up to 107 km/h and climbs to a height of 51 meters. But that's not all, as a whole area opens up to us, complete with playground, family ride and restaurant.

Tonnerre 2 Zeus at Parc Astérix

A second course, Tonnerre 2 Zeus, has been waiting for you at Parc Astérix since 2022 for even more thrills. Imagine a 90° inclined hump (the only one of its kind in Europe), two high-speed turns, two new humps, fourteen "airtimes" (moments when speed lifts passengers out of their seats), a tunnel with special effects and, for the bravest, the last carriages reversed, so you can experience the attraction in reverse... In short, thrill-seekers are in for another treat.

Diving from Olympus

Goodbye dolphins, Parc Asterix's large central amphitheatre is now home to an incredible spectacle of extraordinary diving. In honor of Zeus, 4 Roman and Greek athletes compete in a diving competition at the Theater of Poseidon in the heart of the City of Olympia. At the end of the team competition, 8 athletes perform a series of equally spectacular figures, with the winning delegation then competing in the individual competition. Only one of the winners goes on to win the famous Trident of Poseidon!

Rififi in the Lower Court

We're off to the famous Gaulish Village to set up shop in the 200-seat Théâtre de Barde for a lively, entertaining show ideal for all ages. The show features a Roman soldier trying to infiltrate Bucolix and his farm animals in the heart of the village. Between the search, the stunts and the twists and turns among the animals, we laugh out loud.
