Puy du Fou is one of the best historical theme part in France. The park offers us extraordinary shows which vividly bring us back to Medieval times. I’ve been to the DisneyLand, I’ve been to Futuroscope, but this time, Puy du Fou has left great impression in me. The feelings was fantastic, it brought me from this surprise to another. Even my little 18 moth girl kept saying wow all the time!
There are 5 main shows at Puy du Fou. If you have only one day only, you shouldn’t miss any of them
This is an indoor show and photos are not allowed. The show features Musketeer performing swash-buckling sword fighting and Gypsy girls Flamenco dancing in water.
2. The Secret of the Lance: the performance tells us a story of a young shepherdess who defends her dojon from English knights.
The shepherdess is singing and dancing.
3. Triumph’s Sign: is set in a replica of an amphitheater, which reminded me of Colosseum, thought I was there actually. The actors have excellent warm-up activities before the performance starts and we will quickly travel back to the atmosphere of Roman times. The performance features a traditional parade of people and animals, gladiators combats, chariot racing and executions.
3. The Vikings: tells us a story about a fight between people living in an old fortress and the Vikings. This is my favourite show of all. It includes great effects, wonderful music and a real-life performance.
The story starts with a marriage, people happily dance and sing.
Then the Vikings come in a longboat, all of a sudden.
And the fight
5. The Phantom Birds Dance is a performance of many birds with great music and songs. Sometimes the birds even fly over our head.
