You’ll see plenty of grandmothers in designer coats at this elegant amusement park, which is adjacent to the swank suburb of Neuilly. There’s a farm with some animals, but the main attraction here are the rides, which include bumper cars, merry-go-rounds, and small rollercoasters. As the rides (manèges) quickly add up (you pay as you go), you may want to point your offspring in the direction of the huge playground, which includes an area where kids can run around under giant sprinklers in the hot weather. In the same area, you’ll find a puppet theater (Wed, Sat–Sun, and school holidays 3 and 4pm) where Guignol’s adventures are presented free of charge. To reach the park from Porte Maillot, take the Petit Train (little train; ticket 3.50€) from Allée de Longchamp at the entrance to the Bois de Boulogne.
