These inspections may be outsourced to a security firm if necessary. In the event that a visitor refuse inspection, Les Parcs du Sud reserve the right to refuse the visitor access to the Park.
Please note that the following items are prohibited on the Park grounds:

– Any object likely to disturb visitors (vuvuzela, megaphones, horns, whistles, etc.).
– Recreational objects such as drones or any other remote- or radio-controlled toy.
– Any object that Les Parcs du Sud may consider to be inappropriate or disruptive.
1.2. Large Objects
Large or bulky objects – in particular luggage, suitcases larger than 55cm x 40cm x 25cm (including pouches, wheels and handles) as well as any size cooler – are not allowed beyond the Park’s foot baths. Groups who have reserved in advance may leave these objects in the hut(s) they have been allocated. We recommend that visitors bring none of these objects or that they use the lockers designated for this purpose located at the Park entrance. Apart from these lockers, employees of Les Parcs du Sud working at the Park are not authorised to hold your articles. Pushchairs are authorised outside of the attractions.
1.3. Transport Devices
Unless a medical certificate is presented, it is prohibited to enter the Park with, and/or to use, roller skates, bicycles, scooters or any other type of transport device, motorised or not, without explicit written authorisation from management.
Proper attire is required in all circumstances. We also reserve the right, at our discretion and at all times, to refuse entrance or to accompany outside the Park grounds any person wearing attire, make-up or tattoo(s) that may offend or upset children or family audiences, or which Les Parcs du Sud may consider to be inappropriate and/or which may foster interactions with or disturb other visitors by impersonating characters in costume. Any clothing that drags on the ground is prohibited. Any attire of a religious nature is prohibited within the Park premises.
For safety reasons, any attire that totally covers the face is prohibited excepting that worn for medical reasons. Wearing costumes or masks is prohibited for visitors aged 12 or older (excepting medical reasons). When worn by younger children, masks must enable clear and permanent peripheral vision and allow others to clearly see the child’s eyes. Access to the Park may be refused in the event of non-compliance with these dress requirements. For any special private events, specific rules and regulations may apply. Please take note of any information on the dedicated resources concerning these events.
Bathing suits and trunks are the only permitted attire for water activities. Street attire, such as cotton underwear, and full-body suits like burkinis, is prohibited. “String” bathing suits and “topless” suits are prohibited. Lycra and anti-UV swimwear are authorised above the knees and up to the elbows.

Les Parcs du Sud reserves the discretionary right to prohibit access to attractions by children under the age of 7 who are not accompanied by an adult. Consequently, unaccompanied children must comply with verification of their height and age upon entering attractions. Regardless of age, minors are the responsibility of their parents or guardians, who are accountable for any damages they may cause.
Unaccompanied minors between the ages of 13 and 17 may enter the Park on their own upon providing a discharge form signed by their guardian (parents, etc.).
This discharge is available at the sales points or may be downloaded here.

In this respect, each visitor agrees to having verified their state of health before coming to the Park and to having reviewed the warnings, access conditions and security regulations in brochures and on websites as well as the information at each attraction or in guides, and having listened to Park employees’ instructions. The restrictions relating to health issues and safety concerns do not constitute discriminatory practices.
For security reasons prescribed by slide manufacturers, certain restrictions regarding participants’ size and shape may limit access to some attractions.

Pregnant women and people with permanent or temporary disabilities, as well as any person benefiting from the right of priority in queues, should be familiar with the risks, conditions, restrictions and terms of access regarding our attractions, either by stopping at our Visitors’ Centre or asking our operators at the Park, or reading the information on our website before their visit.
3.4. Photosensitive Visitors
The attractions and entertainment that use lighting effects may be problematic for photosensitive people and should therefore be avoided (like the slides: PSYCHEDELIK or RAINBOW RACE).
3.5. Closing and Delayed Opening
The Park, as well as certain shows, attractions, parades, restaurants, shops and establishments, are seasonal in nature and may be closed or delayed in opening for reasons of adverse weather (storm and/or wind and/or rain), safety conditions or repair works. Visitors are informed that certain venues may be closed with no prior notice; this shall not entitle any visitor to financial or other compensation.
When an attraction or the Park itself is closed to the public, it is forbidden to access their area. Management accepts no responsibility in the event of accident due to non-compliance with this regulation.
