Is the Adventure Park accessible to anyone?
Yes, anyone of any age that is in good shape can enjoy the various routes. The black route “peperoncino” demands that you be particularly in good shape. Moreover, it is necessary to be in good health and not have any heart problems.

At the weekend, when is the best time to come to the Adventure Park?
There are generally less people present during the morning.

Do the minors (-16) have do be accompanied by adults?
Yes, from the green route, the minors (-16) (1999) must be ACCOMPANIED by their parents or by an adult who are responsible for them (1 adult every 2 minors).

On the yellow route (children), participants have to be visually guarded by their parents or by an adult who are responsible for the children. In such cases, the adults have to follow the introductory course (briefing) with the children.

What is the age required to undertake the routes?
The limit is defined by the height of the person and not by age.

Yellow route: for people that are more than 1.20 m tall
Green route: for people that are more than 1.40 m tall
Light blue route: for people that are more than 1.40 m tall
Blue route: for people that are more than 1.40 m tall
Red route: for people that are more than 1.50 m tall
Black route: for people that are more than 1.50 m tall
Black PLUS route: for people that are more than 1.50 m tall

In practice, for those who are smaller than what required, the height of the safety lines make it difficult or even impossible to self-secure with the karabiners. The accessibility also depends on participant’s agility.
