MyCyprusInsider have done a lovely article on the park, including lots of wonderful images, which we have included for you, below:
“We’ve been busy at work for the past three years now,” says the park manager, Elena Themistokleous who is very excited about the upcoming opening. “It took a lot of hard work to bring our vision to life.” With Cyprus now catching up with the rest of the world when it comes to outdoor fun, dedicated rope parks are a big thing abroad, especially throughout America and Europe.
The Platres park is geared to people of all ages, from young children, to teens and adults who love outdoor activities. It includes various courses with ropes between the glorious pine trees, with different challenges requiring no previous climbing experience.
Once you get there, you’ll receive a briefing, then handed the proper equipment and safety belts to travel between the trees, and from one platform to another. Members of the park staff are constantly on hand to offer help or answer questions. When it comes to safety, you’ll always be strapped in, with a special magnetic French safety system in place.
With all the courses boasting different difficulty levels, it all comes down to each individual’s preferences. As for those looking for a real adrenaline rush, they’ll no doubt love the gush of wind in their hair on the ‘speed zip line’. “Kids have to be over the age of three, but apart from that, there are no limits,” says Elena. “In Europe you even see 80-year-olds enjoying it. But I think it’s the young people that love it the most, it’s really great to see the kids helping their parents along!”
Hailed as an ecological park, the owners aim to double the quantity of trees in the area over the next few years, while the whole vicinity has been carefully laid out with respect to the natural environment and the forest which houses it. Worried about getting thirsty or peckish in the midst of all the action? There is also a coffee shop on the grounds that will be serving ice creams, drinks, sandwiches and more.
