Acoatica in summer

We recommend that you book your tickets online, a head of time, in order to preserve the desired time allocation.

You must show up at the exact time indicated on your confirmation.

Good weather, bad weather Acoatica is open, except in case of closure for security reasons.

On the gourmet adventure, you will find barbecues where you can cook your catch. You can also enjoy the local side dishes (extra costs).

It is prohibited to bring your cooler into the Fishing Adventure area, but you can bring it along with your picnic in the Gourmet Adventure section.

We recommend bringing your fishing rods. If this is not possible for you, we will provide you with fishing rods and worms for free. Y ou may also easily leave with your catch since on-site guides carefully prepare the fish in a bag containing ice. You can also bring your container.

Employees are on grounds to help you install the bait, take off the fish and answer any questions you might have.

Acoatica’s experience may be compared to a concert or a movie admission. If you are not able to be present, we do not make any refunds or modifications on your initial purchase.

Drinking water is limited on the site. It is recommended that you bring your water bottle with you.

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.

The garment should be made of at least 2 layers of close-knit fabric.

The fishing activity takes place outside, there is no heated shelter near the pond. We therefore suggest warm boots and clothing. It’s always a good idea to bring a few extra layers in prediction of variable weather conditions.
