  • So far, we have another Adventure Park, but now we have discovered it and really liked it. Friendly, courteous staff. A wide variety of careers. We're going to have to come.

  • Very good set up, nice staff but crowded on weekends. Had fun, the hardest corse is very challenging. Had fun there.
  • Awesome place. In nature, good exercise, and very cheap.
  • Fantastic ropes courses with friendly and helpful staff.
  • We went there on May 20th, a family of four. It was the most horrible experience of this kind! I don't even know what to begin with. The park doesn't have a nearby bus route so we had to walk around 15 on the road to get there. We were greeted by a lady in a boot who didn't speak English at all. I was with my fiance and his family who are Hungarian so thank god. We got to fill in some forms from a table outside and handed them in to that lady who got us wristbands. We then proceeded inside where at a bigger boot that resembled a cabin again we are greeted by a lad who guess what he didn't speak at all and we get are harnesses and a helmet which I didn't want to wear because it seemed ridiculous. I am informed by my fiance that I have to wear it otherwise I can't go on. Anyway I agree to do it and we are told to wait in the green area a little bit down the path where an instructor will put the harness on. *Please note that my fiance did all the translation since ABSOLUTELY NO ONE SPOKE ENGLISH. The safety brief was literally 40 seconds and the resume I got was 2 lines. Again thank god I am an instructor myself. So we go on with the little one and surprise surprise we are not allowed to use the pulley for crossings. Just the safety lines on the steel cable. We then go to another one of our choice where all three of us become aware that the whole deal with no pulley means a great deal of strength and 100% friction. We struggle a lot until I finally decide to use the pulley as it became ridiculous at this point in time. We were barely moving along. We managed to do that to 3 or 4 crossings until we pass over the green area from the beginning and an instructor sees me doing it. He comes under me and says something in Hungarian, rolls his eyes and leaves. I turn to my brother-in-law to ask for translation and he tells me that he wasn't really paying attention and it was something like not to do it again. At this point in time I am already tired and very angry with the staff. When we finally reach the zip wire I amazingly find out there is no landing site and that you actually land on the hard ground and a broken ankle is definitely not what I want so I choose to somehow deflect that and land sideways to avoid any damage. We decide to try another route since my brother-in-law has never been to something like this before. My fiance gets stuck halfway during a very poorly Tarzan Swing design and then we discover there are no patrolling instructors!!! We literally scream for help since we have no idea how to do it at his point. An instructor comes and tells my fiance how to do it without offering any sort of reassurance or to even stay with us to make sure we are fine. At this point I am fed up with this Not Talking English Personnel and their bitchy attitude. It just goes on and on, one bad thing after another. I managed to rip my jeans on the bum area and my fiance ripped his sleeve and the back of the tshirt when he got stuck on one of the crossings. Again. I understood also what the helmet is for. A bunch of things are banging your head, ready to crack your skull open. We were so tired and randomly we see an instructor and we plea for him to get us down in the middle of the course. My fiance translates for me saying that they can't actually do this and that is really against the rules. When we go back to get our harnesses off my mother-in-law tells us that if it were for normal circumstances we will have to pay to basically get rescued. All in all TL;DR very angry staff, very unsafe course, if you don't have someone to speak Hungarian you are screwed, I will not recommend it. Go to a park or something. Do not go. Period. Here in Uk this kind of a rope course will be closed in a heartbeat for health and safety reasons. Can't stress this enough do not go. It was the most horrible experience with a rope course in my life.
