Big Kids’ Day Out
If hurtling through the mountains at dazzling speeds with jumps, turns and all sorts of spinning sounds like your idea of a good time, then Chamonix Luge is the perfect rollercoaster for you. You will be flying through the mountain tops in a toboggan style alpine coaster for 1300 metres while (trying to!) enjoy some of the stunning views. The Luge is open all year round - day and night - so if you fancy doing something different from your usual ski day, grab your mates and head to Chamonix Park for some cheap thrills!
Paintballing: The Big Kids’ Playground
There’s something inexplicably brilliant about attacking your friends with balls of paint over and over again! Paintballing is the perfect opportunity to get your own back at your mates while having a good laugh at each other’s expense!
For only €16 each, in teams of 3 or more, you will be guaranteed 2 hours of adventure, hilarity and victory (or defeat!). Chamonix Paintball welcomes you to its “wooded landscaped grounds”, filled with natural obstacles that will really keep you and your opposing team on your toes. All of the gear is included in the price – don’t forget to book ahead to avoid disappointment!
Paragliding and Speed Riding: Perfect for Thrill Seekers
If you want a memorable, adrenaline-rushing experience, then you have to try paragliding when you visit Chamonix! For as little as €100, you can be flying high at an altitude of 2050 metres while facing the glorious Mont Blanc! Or, for an even bigger rush, try the Grands Montets option at an altitude of 3295 metres to really get your head spinning!
If you’ve tried skiing off-piste and think that you’re ready for the next level of adventure, then speed-riding could be the winter sport for you! Race through the mountains at dizzying speeds while flying close to the ground with your new wings.
