Very nice and clean facility. We spent half a day here with our 14 year old boys. Everything is there that you need. Restaurant with a nice view of the park, many different attractions. Everyone should find something there. I did not expect such a park here in the Ötztal - cool

Super fun, challenging and cross-border, but the good energetic guide was super to deal with if it got too challenging and we felt we were in safe hands. Worth all the money. Vh. Hanne
