2 kids loved this. Staff were brilliant. Would definitely recommend for young kids. Mini golf a bit boring though but the climbing courses are brilliant.

Visited as a family, 2 adults and 2 girls aged 9 and 6. There are a number of these sorts of businesses in the area and we chose this one as it was close to the campsite and reviews were good.
I didn't expect our youngest to be able to manage much but she did four of the courses, which are colour graded for difficulty. The safety brief was in perfect English and we all understood.
Top top - be sure to tell them if you're staying at a local campsite as they offer discounts for those that promote them. We flashed our wristbands and saved a chunk.
The kids called this the best day of their holiday, so I'd say that's worth five stars!

Went as a group of 3 adults and 2 kids - 10 and 13. We were staying at a nearby campsite and - although we didn't know in advance - got a discount, paying the group rate instead of full price. There are various prices depending on how many levels you are able to do so full price for adults and older kids (our smallish 13 year old could do them all) and then reduced prices for smaller children (based on how high they can reach with arms stretched up). After paying you get fitted for harnesses and then there is a safety instruction (separate groups for English and French speakers) after which you are free to wander and select which coloured route to go on. Unfortunately rather than start on an easy route, we let the 10 year old pick. She went for green which we realised soon in was her second hardest and was really quite scary (for the adults, the kids were unfazed!). Once started on a course you have to continue to the end or call for help and be rescued so we stuck it out but needed a break afterwards! You get 2 1/2 hours on the site and can do as many courses as you want or have time for, they are well graded and I would recommend starting easy and (possibly!) working your way up. Would highly recommend this place and would definitely go again if staying nearby in future.

Visited here with 2 sons 13 & 10. Tours set off every half and hour, separate briefing in French and English. The guide spoke good English and explained each of the bits of equipment well, and then we all had a go on the initiation stage to check out our understanding. There are a whole heap of different routes - 8 in total I think. We were limited to 2.5 hours as it was busy and to be honest we had had enough by then. We did 3-4 routes in the time available - it was slow going at times due to the number of people. The price was reasonable, and there was plenty to go at within a remarkably small area. The cafe at the end was reasonably priced, parking on site.

We were staying at camping les chouans and decided to take advantage of the discounted ticket price on offer.
Glad we did you get a safety briefing then a small obstacle course to show you how to get around then your sent off to get on with it and have 2.5 hrs to enjoy yourselves freely.
We have 2 girls aged 15 and 10 and they loved every minute of it although we were sore and aching for a day or so after lol
Its very much like GO APE but in my mind a little safer as your main safety cable is always attached and you don't do the unclip one clip one on thing like go ape but instead clip on and that's it till your back in the ground so easier for the kids to get on with.
