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 is a FREE playground, great slides, motorbikes and cars to ride, diggers to operate, trampolines, and various water-themed rides.
In addition, during the winter season, Domaine des Planards ski area is located right next door.
Parc d’Attractions & Luge-Alpine Coaster
While the Chamonix Luge-Alpine Coaster (see here) 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 intended for children 4 years upwards and a bracelet for unlimited access can be purchased / see here for more details;
There is a FREE playground for 1 to 3 year olds on-site, opposite the Restaurant des Planards!
There is a great and friendly restaurant on-site, the Bar/Restaurant des Planards.
For the FIFA Coupe du Monde Russia 2018 football season, there was a large screen set up on the terrace of the restaurant . . . the perfect spot for families to watch World Cup matches, with all that the Parc d’Attractions had to offer on-site, and mountain views (and a quick escape for family members not so interested in the football!).
