In the space of a decade, Peur sur le Parc (Fear in the Park) has become an unmissable event at Parc Asterix during Halloween and the half-term holidays. Once again this year, from 5 October to 3 November 2019, Parc Asterix will undergo a metamorphosis and become a permanent show featuring monsters and terrifying creatures. Themed attractions, scary encounters in the Streets of Paris and La Foire aux 6 Trouilles (6-fright fair); Parc Asterix will be full of terrors, large and small. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Peur sur le Parc, a massive surprise awaits those who love to be afraid – head for The Catacombs, the new haunted house at Parc Asterix!
THE CATACOMBS: PARC ASTERIX UNVEILS ITS NEW HAUNTED HOUSE
This new haunted house is only for the boldest visitors. They are invited on a terrifying expedition into the darkest corner of the catacombs. A gravedigger guides them to a secret entrance in the middle of the cemetery that leads into a large underground chamber. They’ll quickly realise that they are trapped. This new haunted house covers 300m2 where visitors face plenty of nasty surprises! As they try to find the exit, our brave visitors are spared nothing including landslides, mass graves, and corpses. Theatrical smoke, sound effects, wind, special lighting and smells are all part of this unique adventure at Parc Asterix. Advance booking on the website www.parcasterix.fr required for this expedition or book directly at the park ticket offices (fee-paying activity: €5 additional fee)
