There are no major theme parks in the Dordogne but there are many parks that provide holiday fun. In Recent years the climbing parks are very popular: forests where you can climb to the treetops and with all kinds of steel cables crossing from one tree to another, sometimes over valleys. There are also animal parks (parc animalier, such as the aquarium in nearby Le Buque) or prehistoric parks (live and do as in prehistoric times).
Les Magnolias is an excellent location to visit these activities.
