This extended All Saints weekend was somewhat of a nightmare for the teams at Parc Astérix. Endless traffic jams, denied access… Visitors paid the price. And even Natasha St-Pier showed her displeasure!
While the All Saints holidays are in full swing for all French children, many families have taken advantage of the fact that November 1st falls on a Tuesday this year to treat themselves to an extended weekend. Yes, but now, according to the many reactions on social networks, everyone had not really anticipated the thing. Starting with Parc Astérix… And even the singer Natasha St-Pier paid the price! She let out a rant.
Oise motorists did not expect such a mess on the roads this Sunday, October 30, 2022. And obviously, the teams of the Asterix Park no more. Indeed, according to our colleagues from the information site Oise Weekly , Faced with the large influx of visitors, the Gallic village so popular with the French was forced to close its doors at the end of the morning. No offense to those who had tickets dated the day elsewhere. However, the number of people rushing to the park entrance was such that the A1 motorway ramp serving the place had to be closed, automatically causing significant traffic difficulties .
Dozens of customers immediately expressed their dissatisfaction on social networks , pointing to very poor communication from the park. In effect, many visitors learned of the closure of the site 100 meters before their arrival after several hours of waiting in traffic jams . Others also reported not even being able to access their hotels. And even Natasha St-Pier went there with her comment.

The singer, yoga teacher in the South West where she has lived for a few years and host actually posted a story on her Instagram account indicating that she was disappointed with the theme park. 'I had dated tickets for today and tonight with my family from Canada' , she first wrote. Before continuing: 'We were turned away even with the tickets dated the day' .
And the mother of little Bixente concludes, visibly very upset: 'Inadmissible!!!!! @parcasterix you gave me' . In response, the amusement park, which is sold out until November 5, immediately replied in story that it was no longer accepting any visitors that day. Site officials also said that tickets valid this Sunday would be valid until January 1, 2023. Traffic returned to normal a few hours later.Source journaldesfemmes.fr
