This is a must do and see. Such great fun and excitement for the kids and big kids. Passed away a couple of hours no bother walking and riding around the miniature train park. Good restaurant and snack facilities with plenty of shaded picnic options also.
This is an amazing family place. Kids had fun an we did as well , can't resist staying on that run. Highly recommend Clean toilets Tips that we learn: Restaurants around the area are closed till 6pm (2nd shift) make sure to secure some snacks for the little one Public transport connection in St mourice station will give you only 3 min to catch the train back to Geneva , you will need to run :)
