There’s a lot to do in Paris, and scouring the theme parks in the region is one of them. You have indoor water parks, hot air balloons, Gaul-themed parks, adventure courses, and even the ever-popular Disneyland. If you are tired from traditional, roller-coaster theme parks (although who could get tired of those?), why not try zip-lining through nature or visiting a more cultural and educational park? Or if you’re taking your kids with you, check out the more family-oriented ones for you to bond with them, depending on their age groups. Most of these theme parks in Paris open later in the year (from March onward), so do take some time to research and plan your trip.
