Fortune favours the brave: these are Hungary’s most thrilling adventure parks

Sárvár Adventure ParkSárvár Balaton

You can choose from more than 60 adventure park programmes in Hungary. But what is an adventure park and how is it different from an amusement park, for example? Adventure parks build on personal activity, as opposed to passively enjoyable theme parks. A good adventure park will not be an easy ride; you will lose some sweat on land, water and in the air.

This is your chance to engage in a series of exercises to improve dexterity, balance and endurance while having fun. Fortunately, everything is as fast, strong, and adrenaline-fueled as your mood or physical fitness allows. Choose the level of difficulty yourself, and in return you get recognition for completing a challenging task.

Why are adventure parks so irresistible?

Adventure parks are so popular because you can test yourself in extreme situations without putting yourself in real danger. You can feel like an extreme athlete, while in complete safety. You choose which tasks you want to try and are also assisted along the way. There can hardly be any more experience-filled recreation than this – it’s a great opportunity for exploring your own limits and creates strong bonds between members of a team. Each park has its own specialty, from the simplest rope and plank-based skill tracks to mind-boggling canopy slides. There are bobsleigh track and snow-donut slides that require less activity, as well as climbing walls, go-karts and paintball tracks that require serious skills. Here are a few:
