Located in Cuges les Pins, Bouches-du-Rhône, the OK Corral is for those who love a Wild West theme. Among its attractions, the theme park offers re-enactments of famous Western stories, including the Gunfight at the OK Corral, for which it was named.

Meanwhile, other attractions include staying in a teepee, as well as many fun rides and stunt shows.

The park attracts fans of the Astérix cartoon characters and features the largest wooden rollercoaster in Europe. Moreover, for those brave souls, the park has a looping rollercoaster that turns its riders upside down seven times during one ride.
