Hello, does anyone know the Smurf Theme Park in France, somewhere near Paris?

The Smurf theme park is called Walibi Schtroumpf. It's located near Metz in northeastern France. When the park was open as a Smurf theme park is was a fun place to ride, play, and have adventures with The Smurfs. It even featured a real Smurf Village (le Village des Schtroumpfs)! There were many smurfy attractions at the Smurf park - including a ride where Gargamel exacted his revenge on the Smurfs!

Here were some of the Smurf rides at Walibi Schtroumpf:

Eventually, in 2003, the smurfiness ended. All Smurf references ceased and the Smurf park was no more. The Smurf rides were changed into non-smurf rides: Gargamel's Revenge became Space Shot, SkySmurf became Monorail, MokaSchtroumpf became The Dancing Cups / Les tasses dansantes, AquaSmurf became Minis-Rivère, AstroSmurf became The Flying Barrels / Les Tonneaux Volants, Smurf Train became Small Train / Petit Train, and Salsepareille became Salsa.

The Smurf park has had many incarnations. The history of the park is as follows:

Name: Big Bang Schtroumpf (owned by Sorépark) - From: 1989 - 1990.
Name: Walibi Schtroumpf (owned by Walibi) - From: 1991 - 1998.
Name: Walibi Schtroumpf (owned by Six Flags) - From 1998 - 2002.
Name: Walibi Lorraine (owned by Six Flags)- From 2003 - 2003.
Name: Walibi Lorraine (owned by Palamon) - From 2004 - .

Hope this helps!

Happy Smurfing,
