Acoatica is a collaborative game intended for the whole family, not just a specific age group. The various adventures offer a multitude of different challenges that will appeal to the skills and interests of all. For some young children, games that call on using knowledge and logic will require help from an adult or an older child, in particular when it comes to reading questions or instructions. However, they will be able to understand and participate in other challenges more or less on their own, including during the visit of the fun adventure. The fishing activity requires the supervision of an adult at all times; however, as it consists of an initiation to fishing, both children and adults will learn more about the sport and perfect their technique. Finally, although access to the site is free for toddlers, children aged 2 to 3 will also be able to enjoy the facilities and discover the site in their own way.
