What do you think about an amusement park paying homage to one of the most controversial personalities of history, where you can watch water shows recreating battles or ski amid frozen carcasses? On the outskirts of Montereau-fault-Yonne, situated just 64 Km from the Paris’ Arc de Triomphe – commissioned by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1806, in a place where cannonballs from the 1814 battle with Austrian forces and their allies are still being uncovered, the plan for a Napoleon theme park is the first of its kind in the world.
