The Stade players went to Parc Astérix and, judging by photos posted on Twitter by the likes of Hugo Bonneval, suggested they were not feeling the pressure ahead of their Dublin mission while they trained on a pitch close to the amusement park.
And they hope it will be a case of history repeating itself.
In April 2011 they went there ahead of their Amlin Challenge Cup semi-final against ASM Clermont Auvergne and went on to book their place in the final with a 29-25 victory in Stade Charlety.
Harlequins denied them by a point in the final in Cardiff but rather than dwell on this painful memory, they are out to inspire themselves with the title of French champions earned on Sunday by prestigious neighbours, Paris Saint-Germain.
Some players also tweeted their happiness to see their football friends win a title. "Parisians and champions, it will hopefully still work one more week."
A new technical staff (Gonzalo Quesada, Jeff Dubois), a few worldwide stars (Digby Ioane, Morne Steyn) and a brand new refurbished stadium at Jean-Bouin all make the players hugely motivated to play in the Heineken Cup next year.
