Spending a day at an adventure park is a great bonding activity for families on holiday, and in the Vendee, there are plenty of places to choose from.
These attractions may not be of the same scale as Thorpe Park or Alton Towers, but they are among the best of their kind in France and you're bound to have a fantastic time at any one of them.
Here is a list of some of the department's top adventure parks:
This unique park is entirely based on French history, and many of the shows are dedicated to heroes and legends of the past. Welcoming a whopping 1.5 million visitors every year, Puy-du-Fou is the fourth most popular attraction in France.
Highlights include reenactments of events involving the Vikings, musketeers and gladiators, while tourists can also enjoy smaller magic and musical shows as well. Between each production, wander through themed historic villages or take your little ones to the outdoor playground.
Parc des Dunes
Another adventure park the kids will love, Parc des Dunes is centred around water sports and, boasting more than 40 different attractions, is one of the biggest outdoor parks in the Vendee.
There's something for every member of your family to enjoy, with fun activities such as waterslides, inflatable games, swings, ball pools and table football on offer. It's even got it's own mini-golf course with 18 holes.
This adventure park, billed as France's biggest, is set in five acres of oak forest and features 17 different courses suited to all ages and abilities - perfect for those visiting with their families. As well as paintballing and air games using inflatable equipment, you can also zipline across the lake.
One particular highlight is the Parcours Sans Baudrier attraction, which participants complete without wearing a safety harness, adding to the adrenalin-pumping experience that sees you jumping through the trees with just a safety net below you.
