New family fun at an unusual children's adventure playground in the Tyrol: Big wooden balls run for 500 metres through the high forest along channels made of stone pine.
Biggest wooden ball run facility in the world
The tracks stretch over a distance of more than 500 metres at various heights and angles between the weathered pine, fir and spruce trees on Mount Glungezer near Hall in Tirol. For the high start, the ball is taken up in the cable lift, the inclined lift or set off from the tree house, which stands on stilts at the centre of the approximately 8000m² large play ground.
Local wood, local manpower and the alliance between tourism team, agricultural assocation, local commune and mountain lift operators provide the basis for an adventure land, which is unique with regard to the realisation and use. Except for work performed on the supporting trees, the construction of the installations did not involve any environmental intervention. An existing forest trail enabled access during construction. The facility can be used without any external form of power supply. The access to the Kugelwald am Glungezer facility is also completely ecological: One can easily travel from Tulfes to the mountain adventure facility on foot or with the chair lift.
