Family Fun at the Best Amusement Centres
If you’re looking for a family activity where children and adults can go crazy and burn some energy, an amusement park is just the thing. Open all year round, they are tons of fun for kids—and adults! See the biggest and best indoor amusement parks in the Québec City area.
Méga Parc at Galeries de la Capitale
There’s a legendary shopping mall in Québec City that’s so big, it even has indoor rides. It’s called Galeries de la Capitale, and the mega‑exciting amusement park is the aptly named Mega Parc. Freshly renovated, the steampunk‑themed park has 18 attractions and rides, for mega fun.
Ferris wheel, roller coasters, and bumper cars… this place is going to keep you busy. If you like skating, the mall is home to the biggest indoor skating path in North America. There are also tons of great stores and boutiques for the shoppers in the family. With an Imax Cinema and a food market to boot, it’s the perfect place for a big day of family fun. If you’re going for maximum excitement, get the all‑access passes to the Mega Parc. Otherwise, if you just want to try a few rides, you can also pick up a points card.

All in a fun Polynesian‑themed park where it’s always a balmy 30°C (that’s 86°F).

For an exciting and memorable day, there’s nothing like Village Vacances Valcartier.
Tip : Bora Parc is so popular that it’s best to buy your tickets in advance, since space is limited.
