Valcartier Vacation Village Reviews
One of the most fun activities I have ever done on a vacation! I’m so thankful my school chose the tube park for our trip to Quebec City. Amazing resort and seems great to stay over night. I just stay... more »
Very good place for some good old family fun or even just for a spa time very professional water slides. And outdoor snow tubing highly recommended more »
We hit Val Cartier on a cold, but sunny Sunday in March and had a fabulous time tuning all over the mountain. There are dozens of descents with many interesting enough for even the hardcore thrill see... more »
We have visited the ice hotel 3 times previous and I have to say that it has gone way down hill. It use to be a fun family place to visit with things like mini ice mazes for the kids and maple syrup poorer over snow. It has evolved in to a cash grab venue, scrubbed of its festive fun. They have this method of charging visitors based on height. My 8 year old son was charged an adult rate because he was a centimeter too tall. He was wearing winter boots. This is really a shame. Sad to see it turn into this. I would not advise this venue to families.
Went to play in the arcade and for the evening water slide session. Arcade was fun but 2 of the game were on but not functional, the trigger on the flight simulator was broken and the player 2 gun for the zombie game didn't work. Other then that fun times. The water park was amazing but an announcement or better signage would be nice in the areas of where to purchase tickets and also that the food stand closes really early
We stayed for a 2 nights package ( 1 night in the Ice Hotel & 1 night at the hotel) and the hotel & amenities exceeded our expectations. We found the restaurants a little pricey for the same food ( burgers, fries etc) but the hotel was fantastic. Nice large rooms, comfortable beds, great water park...like a Great Wold Lodge, but better. We traveled as a family and it was fantastic.
Must see place while visiting Quebec in the winter. The ice hotel is a must see. It showcases the talent of Quebec artisans that pain stakingly decorate this icy cold piece of art. The amount of work and details these artists achieve should be permanently displayed in a museum, it is unfortunate that all this work erased when warmer weather melts it all away in the spring. Quebec is truly a winter wonderland, and the ice hotel is well worth the price if admission. If your daring enough you can even book an overnight room!
Nice clean fun, but expensive. Make sure if you have kids you measure them before you go. My youngest was told he was fine when we paid, once in he could only do the baby stuff and he's 4. He was missing 1".
