Paris Ouest Aventure St Quentin

This is a treetop adventure park that is suitable for both children and adults, providing that they are over 1.1 metres in height, which normally means children can participate from around four or five years of age.

This is an adventure park that will be as hard and enduring as you wish it to be, with different levels depending up your expertise and your daring, but don't even bother booking this place if you don't like heights!

Paris Ouest Aventure St Quentin

There are different courses that depend upon height and ability, which work their way up to the more extreme and starting at only 1 meter above ground, they can go as high as 25 metres and incorporate things such as monkey bridges, zip lines, rope ladders, etc.

The company Adventure offers three acrobatic forest parks that are situated around the outskirts of Paris: The first is 20km to the West of Paris, the second is 25km to the East of Paris, called Davy Crocketts Avenutre and the third is 40km to the South of Paris, called the Paris Sud Aventure.

The Adventure Park West Paris otherwise known as Paris Ouest Aventure St Quentin is the most affordable of the three parks and is installed in a wood on the north shore of the lake of St Quentin en Yvelines. This is a great area just outside the City of Paris where there are numerous activities to occupy the adventurous family, such as horse riding, sailing, canoeing, golf, a leisure centre, etc.

These are permanent forest adventure parks, rather than the mobile ones that you may come across whilst you are on holiday in France and they have to go through rigorous regulations and safety precautions.

With this point in mind, everyone wishing to go on the adventure trails will have a half an hour introduction course that is compulsory, to learn how to use the ropes and the safety equipment such as the harnesses that are provided for your safety.

The first course in this particular adventure park is called the Course Ecureuil Green and is suitable for all that are a height of 1.1 metres or above.  The platforms are between 1 and 3 meters above the ground and the smaller children can also make this journey, but with the help of their parents on the cables with them.  This is a great start for both children and adults especially if they have never done anything like it before.

The second course is the blue route called Course Sittelle and it has breathtaking views running along side a pond at heights of between 4 and 8 metres off the ground.

You leave the ground by a vertical ladder to reach the foliage and it is very varied with lots of different types of adventure activies from rope bridges to tarzan zips and is suitable for all ages, families, groups or individuals providing they are over 1.25 metres in height.

Now it starts to get harder!  The Course Hulotte is classed as the red course and is only suitable for people that are 1.4 metres in height or above and through a series of more difficult tests, you will be at rather dizzying heights within the trees of anything up to 12 metres.

The Course Martre is for those who had no difficulty on the Course Hulotte and is known as the black course, which like in skiing, means it is the most difficult course to do.

There are trapezes, a tyrolean giant, which is like a zip but 156 metres and it will test even the most adventurous and athletic of you, but again, you have to be over 1.4 metres in height to contemplate attempting this.

Reservations are a must and it is advisable to book well in advance as they can only cater for a set amount of people at any one time.  If you are in a group, then booking at least a week but preferably two weeks in advance is recommended so as not to be disappointed and week days are obviously quieter than at weekends, but on quieter days that are out of season, last minute reservations are often possible for families.

The treetop adventure park is open virtually all year round, however, it does have to shut in certain circumstances such as in severe weather conditions, so it is also recommended to check prior to your arrival that you will be able to get the fun you are looking forward to.

For reservations you would need to phone and let them know the park of your choice, the date and time you require, the number of people in your group, your name, an e-mail address and a mobile phone number.

You would need to telephone 0825 150280 [€ 0.15 / min] or 06 88 62 26 37 or 06 08 71 87 65 and the normal opening times are from 9am or 10am (first start) to 4pm or 5pm for last departure in the high season and 1pm or 2pm for last departure in the low season.

To get there by car from Paris you would need to take the A13 and A12 motorways towards St Quentin en Yvelines, then take the exit Montigny St Quentin, through the Porte de la Digue side, Base Nautique, in the town of Montigny le Bretonneux.
