Memories from France: Airpark

Posted by Picasa
Whilst canoeing down the Dordoyne we noticed some wires across the river and decided to investigate. What we found was a place called Airpark which was a park in the air! We were given harnesses and a short lesson before being set free. There were three areas, toddler, six-ten years and ten and over. Ben had great fun in both the smaller areas, pretending he was a solider, whilst the rest of us tried out the big course. It was great fun and there were all sorts of obstacles to overcome. Of course I fell tested the harnesses for the safety of my family and they worked!!! We all agreed that the zip wiring was the most fun and the children enjoyed it so much that we returned another day.

That looks like a lot of fun but I'm not sure if my fear of heights would allow me to do it!

ok. so that is so totally awesome. i would love to go there, two if my best memories from childhood are exmouth camp where they had just one of those pully things and some place up the m4 (near badminton?) where they had this kind of wooden park thing with all this stuff to do like that - maybe mum can help here cos I can't remember ?

Beccy, how do you do those photo collages like that - is it a blogger function or do you make it elsewhere and then upload it as one photo??

Debbie said...

Wow! That looks like such great fun. Terrifying, but fun. :) I have never heard of an air park before. What a great idea.

Gorgeous photographs - bet they had so much fun!

I think I might even enjoy that. I'm not much into roller coasters etc.

Outdoors stuff (safe stuff) would be the way to go.
