Forget Disneyland Paris. The kids will love these bizarre European alternatives...
Starting in 1978 as an open-air amateur dramatics night, this rural theme park has become France's second-most visited park after Disneyland Paris. Bizarrely, there are no rides. Instead visitors are treated to spectacular recreations of historical events, on a Cecil B Demille scale.
Giant farting dog (Bon Bon Land)
A theme park based on Danish confectionery, yet featuring a roller coaster that takes riders on an exciting journey around giant mounds of dog poo. Just what do they put in their chocolate?
Fun at Plopsaland (Plopsaland)
While we're on the topic, this theme park is based on Belgian cartoon characters called The Plops. Eat at the Plop restaurants. Buy a trinket or two from the Plop Shop. Go on, you know you want to.

Asterix characters at Parc Asterix (Parc Asterix)
Based on the stories of Astérix, the beloved French comic character, this theme park is famous for its rollercoasters. All of the rides are themed on historic cultures like the Romans, Ancient Greeks and Egyptians. They are all given an Astérix twist so don't expect them to be historically accurate.
