Are you looking for an interesting, fun-packed and enjoyable day out in the beautiful interior of Istria? Do you want adventure and excitement for you and the children? At Glavani Park near Barban in Istria there is all the fun and adventure you require. Not only does the park have the best and largest high ropes climbing course in Croatia, it also has an animal park for everyone to see goats, sheep, chickens, rabbits and all the babies plus, of course, the ever friendly dogs and cats!
Glavani Park is situated on the edge of the quiet village of Glavani 6km from Barban on the road towards Vodnjan (10km) and well signposted from the main Pula – Labin road at the Manjadvorci junction.
Glavani Park started business on June 1st 2011 and immediately became a success for the Croatians and tourists alike. The Park has been certified by the European Ropes Course Association and is inspected every year to ensure that it continues in its very high safety standards. Awarded a "Certificate of Excellence” for 2012, and again in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 by the world’s largest travel website "Trip Advisor” it is rated as the number one attraction in Istria.
The staff are professional, qualified and extremely friendly.
Building on this success Glavani Park doubled in size for the 2013 season adding two new major attractions: Firstly a fantastic 11 metre high 3G swing which is constantly voted the best thrill and adrenalin rush in the park: Secondly, the Devil’s Causeway which is the huge suspension bridge across the valley consisting of four ziplines, a long skateboard run, three mad crossing bridges and the highlight; a 35 metre long monocycle ride 12 metres above the valley floor! One zipline takes you 120 metres along and 20 metres above the valley floor!
The adventure starts when our top quality harness is fitted on to you by our qualified instructor. Then you have a brief, but thorough, training session on ground level to ensure you understand all the safety and operational features of the gear and the park.
Once ready you will spend just a few short minutes on the two metre high "yellow level” training and small children’s course before deciding if you are ready to start the 6 metre high "blue level” course which, after 10 great and variable games, ends on the thrilling 113 metre long zipline!
Now you are ready for the 10 metre high "black” course with even bigger and more taxing games, which ends with another trip down the 113 metre long zipline!
Rest! Enjoy a drink and ice-cream.
Now tackle the Devil’s Causeway the huge suspension bridge, climb again on to the black level for three games before diverting on to the 80 metre long zipline which guides you towards the suspension bridge! Enjoy spectacular views and the wonderful feeling of flying through the wind! Be free and full of adrenalin in a truly safe environment! Test your nerve. You’ll be pleased you did!
Now you can continue your day with the game giving the scariest memories and thrills, we challenge you to go 11 metres high and drop from the skies on the 3G high swing. Experience making the silliest face and screaming with the shrillest voice while shooting down close to the ground before whizzing up to the skies again on this fantastic swing, it is truly the "Icing on the cake!”
Now you can go, rest, drink, eat or, again, continue – because -2017 was a really special year for us - we built our arena for concerts and three new games: The 12m high climbing wall , The 20m high tower where you can challenge yourself and jump with the Quick Jump system and the biggest game of them all, the human catapult, where you will fly 75 metres in one second. This is the only horizontal catapult in Croatia and the most awesome game in Croatia!
