AttractionsWalibi Rhône-Alpes

Walibi Rhône-Alpes is an amusement park located near Chambery at the foot of the French Alps. Walibi has attractions and rides for all ages, from small children who are just walking to adults who are looking for a little excitement. Rides are organized by height with limits indicated at the entrance to each ride.

There are 3 roller coasters, the Boomerabd being the fastest. There are also two other fast rides, a swinging boat and a ‘tomahawk’, plus a ride where you free fall a few stories. Slower rides include a train, raft, bumper cars and merry-go-rounds. There is also a small farm and water park.

The nice thing about Walibi is you have a good verity of things to do for all ages.

Some suggestions if you visit Walibi:

  • Get there when the park opens – 10 am. This isn’t so much to beat the crowds as to beat the traffic going into the park. As Walibi-Rhône-Alpes is served by a two lane road.
  • Bring your own lunch. Park food isn’t too expensive, but why buy food when you can bring your own.
  • Bring you swimming trunks. There is a park within a park, a water park – L'Ile aux Pirates. The only catch is that there is separate admission, €8, but €5 if you enter before 12pm. The water park, like the amusement park has a good variety with wading pools for young children to slides for those looking for thrill.

Walibi-Rhône-Alpes is located off the A43 Autoroute exit 11 (coming from Geneva, Annecy or Chambery) or exit 10 coming from Lyon. Once you exit the Autoroute follow direction Bourg-en-Bresse for exit 11 or Les Abrets exit 10.

There are a number of other parks owned by the same company. See for more information.
