Skypark Parco Avventura - Perticara di Novafeltria (RN)
Skypark, just inland from the Adriatic Riviera, from April to the end of October, offers 1 kilometer of adventure divided into 18 different routes. With more than 130 passageways placed at various heights with the help of creepers, nets, cables, climbing walls, bridges and walkways, here you can experience great excitement while respecting nature in a day outdoors among the trees of the beautiful Monte Aquilone forest, in the heart of Montefeltro. Besides the many ropes courses, this is the best area for doing outdoor sports, such as Archery and Geocaching, or free falling with the Sky Jump, a true adrenaline rush that will challenge even the most courageous!
Created in 2005, park is designed to have fun at any age while being very safe. What makes Skypark unique is its special atmosphere. In fact, here only eco-friendly activities are done without using electricity or pollutants. Entering into Skypark you leave behind everything that is artificial in the world.
Built with the utmost respect for the trees, using just wood, ropes and the necessary steel cables for safety, these courses are so well integrated into the nature surrounding them that they almost seem to be part of the woods, which reveals itself as you go along with amazing views.
The Mini Area, with free admission, even small children as young as age 2 can have fun on different balancing games that simulate the ropes courses. Then there at the Children’s Courses divided into Yellow, Orange, and Brown for children over 100 cm tall; together with the Mini they make this the biggest and most fun area for kids on the Riviera, with about 30 different passages.
Kids can also do the Green, Green Plus, Blue and Blue plus (easy to medium difficulty levels), which can be done by adults as a warm up and by children more than 130 cm tall. The new Purple course is a relatively easy course, good also for kids, but it reaches considerable heights and offers breathtaking panoramic views. For adults and brave kids more than 140 cm tall, it is possible to take on the more difficult courses Red and Red Plus; the very difficult Black at 16 meters above the ground will test even the bravest visitors. This year there is also the Black Plus which is mentally and physically challenging, with very difficult exercises to do at very high heights.
The experience of the highly specialized staff built up over the years guarantees safety and fun for everyone. The instructors will make you wear suitable equipment – harness, ropes with spring clips and pulleys, helmet – then after the instruction phase and the practice courses (there are three inside the Park) they will be available for advice and help. The use of innovative intelligent “Clic-it” clips and the continuous lifeline “Zaza” makes these activities completely safe. Skypark is continuously looking to improve its customer service. In fact every year the park meets the European code for safety standards UNI EN 15567-2008.
Inside the park there are also educational activities with the intention of educating and informing both adults and children about living in harmony with and respecting the environment. During the school year, various labs are organized with experts such as the astronomy labs with recycled materials, observing the sky with your eyes or a telescope, educational classes about biodiversity and environmental education observing animal tracks in the woods, as well as guided hikes with readings of short stories or fairy tales.
The activities here at the park are great for group work, which installs trust in ourselves and others, which is fundamental for a class.
Admission to the park and use of its structures is free, there is only a charge to go on the courses. Skypark is therefore an ideal destination to spend a day in an out of the ordinary way, just 45 kilometers from the Riviera, immersed in nature, organizing a picnic or eating at the Skybar which offers very good handmade “piadina” sandwiches and typical local products.
Campers can spend the night in the square at the entrance to the park, and there is no better way to enjoy the star studded sky of Aquilone Mountain and the breathtaking view of the coast after a long day of fun.
