New additions for this year include ‘Le Monde Imaginaire de La Fontaine’, which was first developed in 2012. The revamped immersive experience celebrates 400 years since the birth of Jean de La Fontaine.
‘Le Monde Imaginaire de La Fontaine’ now extends across a garden of 7,500 square metres, where actors and animals bring the fabulist and poet’s fables to life.

In addition, Epique Studio is a new audiovisual production centre at Puy du Fou. Epique Studio features the full range of Puy du Fou sets and services.
