The Parc d’Attractions de Chamonix, Chamonix’s very own amusement park with views of Mont Blanc, makes for a great family day out!
As well as the Chamonix Luge-Alpine Coaster, which is open year-round, there are a couple of FREE playgrounds in the 1-3 years and 3-12 years age brackets, great slides, motorbikes and cars to ride, diggers to operate, trampolines, and various water-themed rides. In addition, Les Planards ski area is located right next door.
While the Chamonix Luge-Alpine Coaster operates with a ticket system, the rest of the amusement park operates with a system of jetons (tokens) that can be purchased either from the machines or from the caisses. The slides are for 4 years upwards and a bracelet for unlimited access can be purchased.
There is a great and friendly self-service restaurant, as well as picnic spots.
