Since their premiere in 1959, Astérix and Obelix have spawned 13 films, numerous games, and multiple comic books. Over the course of their adventures, they have traveled to Egypt, England, and America. The antics of Astérix and Obelix are rooted in French humor — the characters are highly visual and undergo many coincidences. Compared to Disneyland Paris, Parc Astérix is significantly cheaper. A one-day ticket to Parc Astérix is about $57 ($48 for children) while a one-day ticket to Disneyland Paris can range from $100 to $200 depending on if you are visiting both parks, the time of year, the day, etc. Granted, Disneyland Paris is two parks (and you can choose to go to one park) and is larger than Parc Astérix. However, since Disneyland Paris was designed by Americans and is rooted in American culture, it’s simply not as French as Parc Astérix. Another difference is the minimal English spoken in the park. Last summer my husband and I made the trek to the outskirts of Paris to visit...
The park is divided into “lands,” each modeled after a different place that Astérix and Obelix had visited (alas there was no America land) and featuring a ride dedicated to their time in that land. As we entered the park, a large Obelix stood at the front gates, posing with guests for pictures. I immediately ran up to get my picture taken with him. Obelix quickly picked up that I did not understand him, and would motion for me to do certain poses, such as raise my arms up to show off my muscles. We both giggled as we did our best to communicate. The first land of Parc Astérix is an entire recreation of their village. Thatched roofs, cobblestone roads, and numerous souvenir shops line the streets. A giant, goofy-looking sphinx stands on one end alongside a statue of a cartoon roman soldier holding a sign directing you to the nearest pizza parlor. Paul and I walked down the street in awe. We left the village, walking into a land entirely dedicated to Egypt. As an Egyptian-American, I...
There were a few rides that had no discernible connection to Astérix and Obelix, including L’Oxygenarium, which started off on a raft that takes riders through a gigantic nose. I was unsure if we were meant to be snot or if the nose was an inside joke only known to French people. Despite having no knowledge of Astérix and Obelix, Paul began to pick up their stories. Since French humor is highly visual, he giggled as the Roman soldiers crashed into one another and as Obelix let out gas after devouring an entire boar in the Attention Menhir attraction, a “4D” film of Astérix and Obelix. Numerous stage shows also happen throughout the day based on episodes and cultural notes from the places the characters visited. While the rides and shows are quite impressive, the food is equally intriguing. Some options are no different than that at an American theme park, just with a French twist. Hot dogs on baguettes and slurpees are sold every few feet, as well as ice cream and pretzels. Some of...
Parc Astérix is based on the comic books about "Astérix the Gaul" by two Frenchmen, Goscinny and Uderzo. The stories are set around 50 B.C. when Julius Caesar had conquered vast regions of France. In the stories there is one small village left that won't surrender to the Romans.
