Find answers to your most frequently asked questions here.
What happens if it rains ?
As all our shows and activities take place outdoors, we recommend that you come on a dry day to make the most of the park. In case of light rain, the park remains open and the shows are guaranteed. If the rain intensifies or if the ground becomes soggy due to heavy rain, some shows may be cancelled for the safety of our animals and staff. Unfortunately, wet birds cannot fly and our horses cannot run in the mud..
Where to buy park tickets ?
Tickets are sold at the park reception on the day of your visit. If you wish to offer tickets as a gift, you can contact us and purchase them by mail. They will be valid for the entire following season.
Is it necessary to reserve a seat for the shows ?
Reservations are only necessary for groups of 20 people or more. If you come alone, with friends or family, there is no need to book as the number of places is not limited.
Are there seats for the shows ?
As the park places great emphasis on natural materials, wooden benches are present in all show areas, except for the waterfowl show.
Is the park accessible to people with reduced mobility or pushchairs ?
As the park is located on a flat area with no particular obstacles, it is fully accessible to wheelchairs and pushchairs. A ramp facilitates access to the restaurant terrace and our toilets are adapted. For people with reduced mobility, however, an attendant may be useful to place them on the lawns of the performance areas.
Is it easy to park around the park ?
The park has a large car park, located 50m from the entrance, in front of the Museum of Prehistory and Geology. It is completely free.
Can we leave the park and re-enter ?
Upon payment of the park entrance fee, a small ink stamp will be applied to your wrist. It will allow you to go out and return to the park as many times as you like during the day.
Can I take my dog with me ?
Dogs are not allowed in the park for safety reasons: not only for our visitors, but also for our birds and even for your dog !
Are the performances suitable for young children ?
Our shows are very visual and juggle pedagogy, humour, action, aesthetics, history, stunts… Young and old will enjoy them and will come back with unforgettable memories. Admission is free for children under 4 years old.
What do your birds of prey eat ?
The birds are fed every day of the year by our falconers, according to their natural feeding needs. We therefore feed them mostly raw meat (red or white meat, quail, rabbits, mice, rats, chicks, etc.) alternating with fish from the lake (roach) in the case of eagles, which are fish eagles. An eagle eats between 200 and 300g of meat per day.
What happens when the park closes ?
Out of season, the park is closed, but not asleep ! Our falconers are present every day to feed and care for our birds of prey. The birds do not fear the cold thanks to their layer of down and insulating feathers. The couples form, reproduce and enjoy the peace and quiet before presenting their offspring to the public at the spring reopening ! This is also the time to renovate and carry out landscaping work in the park and to plant shrubs and flowers that will enhance your visit during the fine weather.
Why are some birds in very large aviaries while others are tied to a pole ?
We organise the distribution of our birds according to different criteria. In general, the larger aviaries are reserved for paired birds, so that they can breed under good conditions. These birds are not used in shows in their breeding years. On the contrary, the poles to which some of our birds are attached are used for the birds we train and which fly regularly during our shows, and allow them to keep a good quality of plumage. Some birds of prey have a tendency to jump on the net of their aviary or to fly against the net, which can damage the feathers.
