Activities in the Vendée – old & new!

Alongside fantastic beaches, beautiful countryside and lively resorts, the Vendée is also a great place for fun days out. We’ve rounded up a few of our favourites for a day out suitable for the whole family…or at least those without a fear of heights! O’Gliss Waterpark – scheduled to open on 25 June 2016 Opening in June, O’Gliss Park, looks like it’s going to be a pretty fab waterpark! From artist impression images there’s a large ‘rock’ type thing in the middle of the park with lots of great looking slides coming out of it. Situated next to the Indian Forest around 15 minutes from La Tranche-sur-Mer, the waterpark looks like it’s going to be fantastic for the whole family. According to their blog, it’s going to be separated into four parts – Lud’O Park, an area dedicated to children, Sunset beach, ExploralO with some wild rapids and Delir’Space, which is home to some thrilling water slides. Indian Forest Adventure Park  This adventure park is fantastic for the whole family! There are four fantastic ‘Accrobranche’ treetop trails which suit everyone from the most timid in the family up to the most adventurous. For daredevils, the Water Jumps will surely get the adrenaline going. With a collection of jumps and slides ranging in lengths and heights, everyone over five years old (who’s brave enough) can join in! A new ride has been launched for 2016 – The Crazy Race.
