Family Fun: Sicily's Adventure Parks

The adventure parks in Sicily are aimed at those who want to "have outdoor fun" immersed in greenery, experiencing the thrill of climbing and challenging the force of gravity.

They consist of routes suspended between tall trees or between rocks where, with different levels of difficulty (suitable for both children and adult), action takes place under the careful control and assistance of qualified personnel.

Adventure parks equip their users with safety devices generally used by mountaineers (harnesses, carabiners, pulleys) to reduce the risk of injury to zero.
