The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s golden–haired character may have turned 100 last year, but his popularity shows no sign of decline.
Alongside Astérix, our Petit Prince has the rare honour of having an amusement park named after him. It’s also the first aerial park in the world, and only just opened on the 1st of July this year.
Saint-Exupéry’s timeless classic has been translated into more than 270 languages and sold over 150 million copies around the globe, making it one of the most read books. While there is a feature length film and an opera about his adventures currently in the works, this new theme park intends to take children into a poetic and philosophic journey that will help them see what is really important in life.
Located in Ungersheim, in the heart of the Alsace region, just 50 kilometers away from the Swiss border and 15km from the German border, the 24-hectare park is more about slowing down and appreciating the little things around us than big thrills.
