Très bon moment

Commenté le 09/01/2024

Aucune difficulté, très bon moment, bien organisé. Chasses au trésor au top pour les enfants, très contents également de repartir avec de « vrais » trésors. Je recommande cette activité (la grotte) à partir de 4/5 ans, pas avant. Plusieurs enfants dont mon fils de 4 ans avaient peur dans la grotte.


Très bonne expérience !
