ANIMATED FOREST. ADVENTURE CIRCUIT
The adventure circuits are set in the middle of the trees. One for the youngest children, one for kids over eight years old and one for older kids and adults.
It’s a great plan for everyone. The kids have a great time walking on the ropes, climbing and jumping on the zip-line. For the older ones, it gets more complicated, and the route is much longer and more emotional.
The adult tour is a challenge for everyone. A highly recommended experience if you want to test your skills on the trees. Great activity for the whole family to have a great time, the kids will be amazed to see you “climb” along the circuit… it’s not easy, but it’s worth it!
ONE OF THE LARGEST ZIP-LINES NEAR BARCELONA
The route is long and, depending on how fast you are, can take about an hour and a bit to do the whole thing. But the effort is worth it, and after the whole circuit, the climax is the 150-metre zip line, which is 9 metres above the ground.
It’s a pleasure to let yourself fall to travel at maximum speed along this enormous zip-line, 150 metres long, with a maximum height of 30 metres. Just… enjoy!
RESTAURANT AND PICNIC AREA
After the tour, take the opportunity to have lunch. You have two options: you can take your picnic with you and eat in the picnic area of the park, or you can eat in the park’s cafeteria/restaurant.
Eating in the restaurant is very pleasant as it has a large terrace where you can relax outdoors. It’s worth checking out all the menu options on offer as they are very good value for money if you buy them together with your ticket. They offer sandwich packs or menu trays.
It is one of the best-known areas of the park. The model exhibition is a 25,000 m2 map of Catalonia in “real” reality, where you will become a giant. You will discover the geography, architecture and culture on a pleasant walk in the middle of nature.
The park has more than 150 models divided by regions: Gerona, Tarragona, Barcelona and Lleida.
The kids will enjoy recognising many of Barcelona’s most famous buildings: La Pedrera, the Sagrada Familia, the Cathedral, the King’s square, Monserrat Mountain and, of course, Camp Nou.
Many of the models have buttons that operate some part of it: a fire engine extinguishes a fire, the ski lifts on the ski slopes, the boats in the harbour or planes at the airport…
All the models are surrounded by vegetation, which creates a beautiful environment. You can walk around and enjoy the landscape and the models at your own pace, without rushing, without crowds thanks to the huge space where they are located. Children can run while they enjoy and get to know different places and monuments in Catalonia.
And to round off the day, we took the train that circles the model exhibition and from where you can see the whole park. The kids enjoy it tremendously and it’s a perfect attraction to see the whole park from the heights while resting after a super full day.
The train ride of about 10 minutes during which you can enjoy a panoramic view of the entire model circuit.The price is 2.00 euros/adult and 1.50 euros/child per way.
