Good for the adventurous
Aug 2021
What an experience - definitely don't miss this if in Interlaken.

I appreciated that they trained each individual and made sure we had all understood the rules including the children. It would have been better if they had a coffee shop for the ones who didn't want to do it.

Its expensive so to make the most of it be prepared to spend a few hours.

Awesome, thanks for your review! Yeah, the best way to enjoy the Seilpark to the fullest is, to keep a half day free in your calendar and explore all of those routes 😊🙌🏻

Exciting Rope Course for Young Family
Jun 2021 • Friends
Excellent adventure ropes course. As a family we really enjoyed our time and ended up staying 4 hours. They have lots of picnic tables to eat at. There is even a community fire to grill brats. My youngest is 7 and met the height requirement for 8 courses and they were all fabulous. Lots of zip lines and enough adventure for mom too! Creates critical thinking skills for the kids to figure out solutions on their own and I really liked the “clamp” system they have for best in safety as you are never on a rope course not secured in properly. Bring a picnic, wear long shirts to go under the harness and bring water.

Dear eurof840 Thanks so much for this fabulous review! The best thing to bring is a Swiss ‚Cervelat‘ to grill by the fireplace. 😊🙌🏻

Fun, safe, and great exercise! (But it'll be tough if you're not physically fit!)
Jun 2021
We visited this ropes park on a recent family visit to Interlaken: Husband, wife, teenager, preteen. Everyone loved it. There's a variety of courses, from "easy" to "very hard."

The courses basically involve getting from tree to tree along paths of varying difficulties. There are also a fair number of ziplines which don't require any skill, other than making sure to brake appropriately near the end. You don't need to bring anything other than clothes comfortable to move around in. A harness and gloves are provided.

The hard and very hard courses are genuinely difficult unless you're in great shape. In my case, I have a rotator cuff injury which affects my strength in one arm. I managed three easy courses and two medium, but at that point I was exhausted and just didn't have the arm strength to do more. I did repeat the 3rd easy course later in the day, just to enjoy the eight ziplines on that course.

So be aware that if you're lacking in the arm strength department, the course difficulty will ramp up quite a bit. There's also a lot of balance required on higher-difficulty courses. For all that, on the courses I did, I never actually fell to the point of hanging from my safety cable. I don't think any of the four of us did.

I saw an earlier review complaining about how the safety equipment works. I think there must be a different system now, because we had no problems with it, and I actually found it ingenious. You slide your safety hook across a metal plate, and then it's on the course cable. At that point, your safety cable slides with you, occasionally moving across a plate, but you never actually unhook until you're at the end of a course.

So there's no dual-cable "hook onto the next part before you unhook from the previous part" where if you do it in the wrong order, see you at the bottom! In the system here, you just never unhook at all. (The staff apparently has special tools to open the safety cable clamp if you need an emergency unhook.) Once we got used to sliding along the plates, it was easy to use. As a programmer as well as a parent, I can definitely appreciate a system that eliminates user error!

Special shout out to staff member Shelby, a native English speaker like us, who did a great job of explaining the cable system, was patient as we did the practice course to learn the ropes (literally, ha ha), and was always happy to answer questions and help us figure things out throughout the day.

Admission and meals:

- Your admission covers the whole day (from open to close, 10a-6p in our case).
- The site says to allow 2-3 hours, but you can easily spend the full day, especially if you're an adult, not a sprightly young teenager, and you need to rest now and then.
- You can do each course as many times as you like.
- You can leave (e.g. for lunch) and come back if you like, as we did.
- You can bring meals or snacks. There are picnic tables and free drinking water from a fountain. There are cold drinks and snacks for sale at the building at reasonable prices. (There's not an actual restaurant, though.)
- There are bathrooms in the building.

Storing your stuff:

- There are shelves inside.
- For more peace of mind, there are also small and large paid lockers.
- You don't have to decide how long to pay for a locker up front. You can pay the minimum, and then pay any overage when you return to get your stuff. (But make sure you keep a few Swiss franc coins in your pocket if you're going to do that!)
- You can also just pay for the maximum time and then not have to worry about it. It's only a few francs.
- You can open and re-close your locker any time during your rental. When you scan your bar code to reopen your locker, it'll ask if you want to continue or end your rental. Make sure you say "continue" unless you're leaving for the day. (The locker UI speaks several languages.)

Getting there:

The ropes course is only a 15-20 minute walk from Interlaken West. The road can be narrow in places. There's a small forest trail you can take that makes the route a bit shorter and lets you avoid cars on the road. There are signs to direct you.

Have fun!

Nice park for kids, many different trails
Apr 2021
Our daughter enjoyed the park very much. She loved the long slides and there is a trail with 8 of them. Many different trails and easy ones to start with. It is rather expensive, but worthwhile if you stay 3-4 hours.

Safe and lots of fun
Aug 2019
Both our kids aged 11 and 14 had loads of fun, it is perfectly safe, there is a tiny cafe, water fountain and a toilet and ample parking. It is a bit difficult to find when using public transport, there is a short walk from the bus stop. We were there for 3 hours and there was so much more to do.

Two visits in one week
Aug 2019 • Family
I can not recommend this place enough! My two boys first visited this place while our explorer scouts went canyoning. They loved it from the varying courses on offer from easy to extremely hard. We watched their confidence grow as they explorerex the high ropes up in the trees. The staff were great with them.

They enjoyed it so much that we returned a few days later with 35 explorer scouts too, all aged between 14 and 18. The staff were so accommodating and great with the kids. Everyone had a safety briefing before ascending the ropes, and they were always on hand to help our scouts. Again they loved the different aspects of activity and even the more anxious ones liked that there were lower courses for those not so keen on heights and then higher ones with amazing zip wires for those a little more daring. It remains a firm favourite of our trip with the youngsters and would highly recommend to anyone looking to do some adventurous activity in Interlaken.

Absolute blast!
Jul 2019 • Family
Visited this park mainly to placate the 11 year old boy. The 48 year old and 50 year old had as much fun as he did! Staff was attentive and came quickly when the 11 year old had a technical issue with one of the obstacles. If you have kids, this is a must do. If you don't have kids, but like to have fun, it's a must do.

Fun active time in beautiful forest
Jul 2019 • Family
We have a 10 yr old who’s favorite travel adventure is this kind of park. We’ve done quite a few all over the world (including one in Zermatt a few days ago-which by the way got 5stars from us).
I’d give this one 5 stars for: 1-location (beautiful forest), 2-accessibility (we fast walked our way from Jungfrau Victoria Hotel in Interlaken & made it in 20min - it’s 15min from Interlaken West bus/train station), 3-variety/number of tracks (you can spend many hours doing the entire thing, or choose freely to skip ahead if you’re pressed on time).
However, it has been rather underwhelming. And the ONLY thing that makes it this way is this ‘double safety magnetic carabiners’ system they have. It’s absolutely maddening & frustrating & all it does is slow you down. You’re tinkering with this stuff so much it’s down right annoying. Every time you start a pass, you have to hook these 2 things on the line via magnetic slot. Before you end that pass, you have to do it again. Sometimes you have to do it in the middle of a pass (I really don’t get this one!). Multiply that by let’s say 10-20 passes per course, it’s so boring (Let’s say you have a 10 pass track, you hook these approx. 35 times) I literally remember messing with these things 10 times more then the actual pass from tree to tree (which is why you’re there!).
The zip lines can be fast and you’re braking with your gloved hand. No padded landings either. The harness feels comfortable. My husband & son said same thing.
They said they rebuilt last year. I wonder if this safety system is new, and if yes for what reason?! I’ve seen it built in other places where one hooks in at beginning of a track & doesn’t have to mess with it anymore, your safety line is on a continuous path until the end. Or, if it’s a double safety like here, it’s a simple basic carabiner. Click on and off, no magnet, and do one at a time. So much easier!
So basically, if you’re a rope course nerd, don’t bother. Or go, but with the right expectations.

Thanks for sharing your experience, it sounds like you had a great time despite not getting comfortable with the "CLiC-iT" system, which is good to hear! For those interested in knowing more about the safety system used in The Adventure Park, please google "CLiC-iT Adventure". We're impressed by the system and found it to be the safest way to allow independence throughout each course with no risk of accidentally becoming un-attached. However, this is great advice... and make sure you take your time when you arrive at the park to learn how to use the system correctly, it'll make your experience that much better :)

Great adventure
May 2019 • Family
Attended today with a group of 20 Scouts from the UK aged 10-15yrs. What a fantastic time everyone had. Three hours of high adventure. Staff were great and one of the instructors went around with one of the Scouts who was frightened of heights. Facilities were great and staff very knowledgable.

A must do!!! So much fun!
Aug 2018 • Family
My family came here on a rainy day as we weren’t sure what else to do. It was so quiet and we stayed for about 5 hours, it’s such good value for money! Really really good.

It was so nice to be able to go round and round again and try out all the different difficulty levels.

The whole system is well thought out and we all said how safe we felt, the instructions at the beginning were very clear. However, towards the end of the day my 10 year old brother somehow managed to not be connected to any of the cables high up in the tree. It was a mystery as that’s not supposed to happen, it was a worrying 10 seconds and we don’t know how it he managed it. We told the staff and they said they would look into it and check the harness isn’t broken.

They have a variety of drinks and snacks but I would recommend taking a picnic if you are staying a while as there are plenty of tables outside

Overall, highly recommend this place! SO much fun :-)
