Puy du Fou Part 3 Triumph's Sign

 Another of the big shows at the Puy du Fou is the Triumph's Sign.
Set in a Roman coliseum, it is the biggest "in park" show...with lots of actors, stuntmen and animals. In 40 minutes you get a nice soft summary of what could have been Ancient Rome entertainment.
Lots of wild animals, gladiators, a chariot race. The Christian slave didn't get eaten though (note the mild disappointment here).




A very realistic chariot race...
A very laid back lion

And, yes, Romans are the cutest ;)
I realize I didn't take a single photos of the "Gallic heroes" (versus the horrible barbaric pagan Romans) ...I guess the French Christian propaganda was a bit lost one me... or I just chose to ignore it.

O waw... a chariot race too!! Excellent fun!
That park looks like a big circus (and amazing too!) rather than a regular amusement park, which I really love to see, I hate the big ones with lots of rides and noise...

I hope they take good care of the animals when they are not working!
Love the outfits and the arena, looks impressive!

That must have been really fun! I love the gooses, I didn't had any idea that they used to parade with gooses :P :)))

Wow! Amazing shots! The laid back lion is definitely my favorite; he stole the show for me! :)
