Another fun activity at Seilpark Engadin, this game may be enjoyed by anyone ages 5 and up. It’s a lot like mini golf but with a Frisbee instead of a ball, and you’ll discover a 9-hole course filled with fun and challenges.
Fun for both children and adults, this activity combines a trampoline with a bungee cord for a bouncing good time. You’ll be safely buckled in, and it’s possible to bounce down to the ground and high into the air and even do somersaults in midair.
Night of the Rope Parks
Each June, Seilpark Engadin and rope parks all across Switzerland offer a special night challenge that runs from 6 p.m. to midnight.
