Vulcania celebrates its 15th anniversary

In the heart of the Auvergne Volcanoes Park, just 30 minutes from Clermont-Ferrand, Vulcania is a theme park where children and adults can learn about earth sciences in a fun and interactive environment.

Attractions include 5D films, motion platforms, interactive exhibitions and Le Ballon des Puys, a tethered helium balloon offering a 150m high view of the Chaîne des Puys. Vulcania is the front door to discover the volcanoes of Auvergne according to the guide Lonely Planet.


To celebrate its 15th anniversary, Vulcania will open the doors to Maison de Pitoufeu, a new volcano themed play area aimed at the younger visitors. The attraction Tracing the Footsteps of the Dinausors will be coming back for its third and final season and will be featuring many new animatronics. On the occasion, the park also proposes a cartoon on dinosaurs, a 3D film on a big screen.


In April, the park organises activities around its mascot Pitoufeu (magic show, games… ).
In May and June, get ready for an adventure with Défi des Volcans, an interactive game with quizzes and challenges by Professor Yapadrisk.

In the summer, be prepared for days and nights of magics and surprises with street theatre, science challenges, experiments, fire work and much more!
