The 9 best amusement parks in the Alpes Maritimes

We know that the Côte d'Azur is a great place for family vacations. Its coastline, its breathtaking landscapes, its typical villages and its preserved natural spaces make it a destination of choice for a well-deserved rest by the sea.

But beyond its natural treasures, the Côte d'Azur benefits from numerous leisure parks with varied themes to the delight of young and old.

The pitchouns' meadow

Le Pré des Pitchouns is an animal park combining many small attractions: trampolines, slides, inflatable structures, swimming pools, water games, etc. A mini-farm allows children to discover and approach farm animals supervised by caring leaders, willing to let their 4-legged companions be given a few caresses.

Adults are not left out! A pleasant shaded snack bar is at your disposal as well as deckchairs, ping-pong tables and pétanque courts. Enough to spend a day relaxing and having fun with the family.

Kid's Island

Rather reserved for the youngest among us, Kid's Island is the perfect combo of little rides, water games and farm animals. The park offers small, well-designed games for children (maze, mechanical horses, electric boats, little train, etc.), numerous animals, pony rides and multiple children's play areas.

A catering service offers burgers, but also many sweet treats for snacks. A lovely animal leisure park for young and old.

Antibes Land

Just a stone's throw from Marineland, there is an amusement park worthy of the name! Ladybug, roller coaster, flying chairs, giant swing, haunted house, carousel, little train... You will find a number of attractions to introduce young and old to the horrors of emptiness and speed.

Little ones are not forgotten! Many rides are designed for them, as fun as they are unusual. Open every day during the summer, the park promises laughter, fun and adrenaline for the whole family.


The latest addition to the department's amusement parks, Koaland is located in Menton and offers attractions designed for toddlers.

There you will find the famous flying chairs, duck fishing, a carousel, inflatable structures but also indoor games and a mini stadium. A small snack will delight the children although the park is modest in size. Please note, although entry is free, each ride requires a fee.

The village of fools

A magnificent wooded park in the heart of generous nature, the Village des fous is a very large play park which combines different activities for children of all ages: water games, treetop courses, inflatable structures, karting, zip line, maze, etc.

Numerous shaded picnic areas invite you to relax, although a snack bar is available for those who are hungry. Access to the different play areas is unlimited after payment of your entry to the park. This amusement park is certainly one of the most beautiful on the Côte d'Azur for its green setting and the diversity of games for children.

The elves' wood

The perfect place to enjoy a family outing that is both sporty and fun. Le Bois des lutins is a park which is renowned for its magnificent hanging nets and its high-perched cabins.

Added to this are a few slides with buoys, bouncy castles, zip lines and a multitude of games with free access. The perfect outdoor outing you dream of when the sunny days arrive.

Canyon and Pitchoun Forest

Tree climbing lovers, these parks are for you! If they are part of the same structure, they only differ by the age of their little adventurers and their location. If Pitchoun Forest is aimed at little acrobats from 3 years old, Canyon Forest only allows access to its adventure trails to children over 8 years old.

A magnificent park immersed in an exceptional plant setting. One of the best attractions in the region.


Well known to residents of the Côte d'Azur, Aquasplash is particularly popular for its large swimming pools, its multiple slides and its play areas for toddlers. With a significant increase in attendance in summer, it is better to avoid the park on hot days.

However, the park is large enough to accommodate the whole family and allow young and old alike to enjoy an incredible moment of relaxation and laughter. Open every day during school holidays.


New in the Alpes-Maritimes (06), the AquaPark of Saint Laurent du Var is a paradise for water sports and thrills!

The floating ninja course is a real invitation to challenge and is a huge success with young people and adults alike. But many other activities can be offered to you: jet ski, paddle, flyboard, towed buoys... Enough to spend a pleasant day at the beach with the family.
