This is the 2nd time we've been here with an age mixture of 13 to 48. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and were suitable challenged with the obstacles. It seemed very safe and great fun. Would recommend to families with teenagers

What an excellent all day experience for children at a really low price (less than £20). Arrived at 10am with 2 children (6 and 9). Shown safety video (only in French!) but this was followed by detailed instructor session in English to properly explain the equipment. Children progressed through the routes, to more difficult challenges in the afternoon until we dragged them away at 6pm. Really good approach to safety. Instructors always about but staying in background until they were needed. Toilets clean but refreshments limited. Suggest a picnic. Overall - really recommend.

Having been to quite a few of these in France, it was very good. Plenty to do and has very easy climbs and some very challenging ones. I observed enough to do for all ages. It is a popular spot and was very busy when we visited. Well worth a go.

Beautiful woods and lots to do for all the family - we have visited 3 times now and each time have wanted to stay longer. Staff are very helpful and friendly and all we met spoke very good English. It felt organised and safe with lots of staff on hand to make sure everyone feels confident. It is worth knowing that they close between 12.30 and 1.30. As you pay for the full day anyway it would be good to come early and bring a picnic to be able to do lots of the different routes.

What a great day out for all the family. From aged 3 upwards climbing is available with an attached wire through the treetops next to the river Dronne at Saint Aulaye in the North Dordogne. Professional tuition in both French and English allows hours of endless fun over differing courses subject to levels of difficulty. The highlight seemed to be the long zip wire experience which travelled the width of the park. Enjoyed by young and old alike. Free parking, picnic areas and a waterside and swimming pool and an inland river beach just across the road. What more could you ask for on a summer's day. Strongly recommended.

This was the closest family activity to where we recently stayed near Bordeaux and it proved to be a real hit. The staff were friendly and helpful in giving us an introduction and showing us how to use the equipment and then we were off through the trees on swinging walkways rope climbing frames and zipwires. It really did suit everyone - from ages 10 to 50 in our group. It was great fun in a lovely patch of forest to keep us from getting hot and bothered.

I took my children - 16, 14 and 5 years old. They all love it. It's colour coded like ski ran. Is not only a zip line, it's interesting. You climb, Tarzan swing, balancing etc. as a parent you can follow them from down below for photograph or video. The staff are all friendly and they are watching on the ground and supervising if they do it right. The children are own their own independently after teaching how you to use the life line. Unlike in Asia the staff is with the child up on the line supervision. I saw some children were too scared to do it. But I don't understand French some adult from behind help too. But I do recommend for confident child. Put insect spray, loads of mosquito in August.
The fees for this €20 per person. No credit card. Only cash or cheque. You can bring and have a picnic on site while the staff are having their lunch. Open from 10 am closed for lunch at 12 til 1:30 pm. Must check the web for opening hours and closing. They serve coffee and cold drink but no restaurant. I'm sure wheelchairs can be use on rough rd. toilet is basic.

We searched for this on line and had 2 to choose from. We originally went to the "Tepacap" in Merignac but after a quick look realised it was very small with not very many trees and looked much better suited for younger children so went onto Arbor et Sens. The reviews looked ok so thought we'd give it ago. Our youngest is 12 and the eldest 46. We didn't book and were a group of 10. Like some of the previous comments, it is a little old looking with some broken wooden boards and frayed rope but nothing dangerous. The safety system is one of the best I've seen. We've done "Go Ape" a few times so have that to compare. They do have sections for younger children but it seemed mostly geared for older ones. You can easily spend 4 hours there and at €20 per person (we asked for a group discount and got it for €18 pp) it's great value for money. I would recommend having water to hand as it's thirsty work! You could put it in a carrier bag and leave it on the ground near the next section. The guys who work there will help with that. Really friendly bunch and a good English speaker there too.

What a great way to let the kids let off steam - this is great fun and a great sport for all the family, provided you don't have vertigo! Great for ages 8 to 18 especially - that difficult teenage time when visiting monuments, vineyards and medieval villages is "boring" and the weather isn't great for sitting by the pool. Friendly staff, good safety, great, challenging routes through the tree tops and not too many people. Well worth the 45 minute drive to get there.......

The parc is well equioed and have tracks for all ages. Friendly staff and one of them did speak english so we felt well treated there.

A few minor details is that the parc is no longer new which can be seen - there are a few places where an renovation would be in place. The security system when climbing is not as moderne as other parcs and it is possible to make manual mistakes and unhook yourself - not likely but possible.
