Perfectly timed with the start of the school holidays, the Foire Attractions will be back in Monaco’s Port Hercule for a whole month beginning Friday 20th October.
Looking for something fun and exciting to do with the kids during the vacances de Toussaint? The annual Foire Attractions on the port is just the ticket.
Some old favourites will be back at the funfair this autumn, including thrill rides Extazy and Mega Dancer, alongside some tamer options like Space Combat and Jumping Frog.
There will also be plenty of new attractions this year too, such as King Tower, a ride that reaches 130kmph, rises 45 metres into the air and rotates dizzyingly around an axis, and the Jump Zone trampoline course, an attraction requiring a certain dexterity.
Additionally, this year will mark the big return of Play Ball, the basketball-shaped ride that has been so popular in the past.
The rides and games will be complemented by a fantastic selection of food options, including waffles, Hungarian brioche and pancakes along with savoury delicacies like socca, burgers and hot dogs.
The annual autumn attraction will be open to the public every day from 11am till 11pm until Sunday 19th November, with special late-night openings on Fridays and Saturdays as well as bank holidays, when the funfair will be open until midnight. On Saturday 18th November, the day before Monaco’s official National Day, the park will remain open until 1am.
Safety and sustainability
Security and safety are always important to the organisers, so be prepared for bag checks at the access points, as well as a head count to ensure over-crowding is not an issue. If the fair reaches a saturation point, entry will be temporarily suspended until it is deemed safe to allow people in once again.
As in years past, the town hall, which runs the funfair, will be installing cameras around the site so that visitors can check out in advance how busy it is.
Finally, recycling and sorting stations will be posted around the venue to ensure this event remains as environmentally friendly as possible.
Make sure you’re never left out of the conversation.
