What a great find this place was. Son picked up a leaflet when we were out and about, they had him at the first picture and he lobbied hard for a visit. Not in our plans and having found nothing about it in my pre-planning trawls of the internet, Husband and I agreed it looked like a fun place. It happened to be only a stone’s throw from St Paul de Vence so slotted nicely into our day – sightseeing in the morning and forest fun in the afternoon.
I was glad we had checked the website before visiting. Although it was summer, our visit didn’t coincide with what they had as their peak season and the park only had limited opening hours. It would definitely pay to check this out beforehand to avoid any disappointment. They claimed on their leaflet it was three hours of fun. We stayed at least four and could have made it longer – we left at closing. Not busy at all either, there were some other French families there and a nice atmosphere but no queues for anything – bliss.
The whole place is a treetop assault course. The minimum age is two years old, I do think children would need to be a bit older than that to fully appreciate and enjoy all that is on offer. There is no maximum age…
We found huge trees with walkways leading from one to another, cabins in the trees and a range of slides taking you back to ground level. All themed around elves, we had the best time here.
We climbed ladders made of net and rope, came hurtling down a plethora of slides, some plastic tubes and others were made of sheet plastic which generated incredible static crackles, crazy hair and much laughter.
Trampoline type nets stretched across valley areas with huge clear balls you could bounce or roll at each other.
Hammocks to relax in and catch your breath…
A giant play area with a zip wire was also fun and then we found inflatable balls to get inside and propel yourself around an astro turf pitch. Much laughter here too and Son proved he is so much better at this type of thing than we are.
Drinks in the cafe and then we did it all again.
We found a “room” full of rustic type games which brought out our competitive sides.
Last but by no means least was a tube slide, the only bad thing was hauling those huge, heavy tubes back up the hill.
We had the most fun ever at this place, Husband and I were more than a bit exhausted at the end but all were glad Son picked up that leaflet.
