For younger kids even the most fascinating cultural and architectural sites will soon lose their interest. We recently wrote about four recreational attractions for kids in Marrakech and here’s another one likely to meet with their approval.
A day out at ‘Ludiparc’, an adventure theme park located on the Route de Fes, just 15 minutes from central Marrakech, is guaranteed to restore family harmony and have the kids squealing with delight in no time.
Set in a location patterned with a series of small lakes, Ludiparc comprises a series of well run indoor and outdoor play areas. There is also a café/restaurant on site as well as other food outlets. Attractions include:
- Arcade games
- Bouncy castles
- Track for radio-controlled car racing
- Kids quad bikes, luge, pedalos
- Shetland pony rides and even a small zoo
The zoo is home to an aviary housing 55 species of exotic birds, many of them quite rare (some of them fly freely over the park), as well as deer, goats, ponies, sheep and other animals.
The park is open from 10:00 to 18:00 on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Entry is around 25 dirhams* (around £1.85*/ Euro 2.25*) per child. Adults go free! You can get there by taxi or by number 26 ‘Alsa’ bus.
The park offers everything that kids and their long-suffering parents could possibly wish for in a fun day out. What’s more, it offers all this at an exceptionally reasonable price, even by Moroccan standards!
