When I was a little girl, I liked to read Asterix. I liked to see the pictures of Asterix and Obelisk. They were cute. When I was in Paris, I went to Parc Asterix, 35 km north of Paris. It is designed after the famous Asterix French comic books by Goscinni and Uderzo. They are two Gauls resisting the powerful Roman army.

The Parc Asterix is an amusement park that's a lot of fun to young children.The Tonnerre de Zeus, a magnificent and unique wooden roller coaster, takes you 30 meters off the ground over the treetops. It's a frantic 1200 meter race with top speeds of 80 km/h and breathtaking twists and turns.
