The blue one is for children starting from 8 years old. The platforms are 4 meters high above the ground. And, last but not least, for the more adventurous, there is the red circuit. The platforms are 6 meters high and there is a zip line of 120 meters long.

Barcelona being a busy touristic city, queuing for attractions can be long. However, you can book in advance with us a package of 17 euros where you will have access to these 3 circuits for the whole family and spare all troubles! However, you might wonder what if you book in advance and it rains the day you bought your tickets on? (Because yes, sometimes it happens in Barcelona). Well, do not worry since because if its rains, you will still be able to go since the park is covered!
