It was an unforgettable, magnificent experience, for my children it was the best gift of these Christmas and New Year 2023 holidays

At first you’ll thought that this activity is only for kids but once you are there, your inner child will be amazed!

I would recommend taking a mask with you, too little air for visitors, otherwise everything was too much.

I absolutely loved it. It was just the best. Probably the best thing I’ve done in Paris.

It was a perfect experience. I totaly recommend it
