Questions about prehistoric workshops
Can we do all the prehistoric workshops and the visit ?
The schedules between visits and prehistoric workshops are organized so that you can do everything in a day. However, in this case, you must arrive at the site upon opening. Download your schedule in pdf on the "schedules" page.
Should you book the prehistoric workshops ?
Prehistoric workshops cannot be reserved. Each workshop is limited to approximately 30 persons. It is therefore not necessary to book because there are many timetables available for each workshop. When you arrive in the morning, you can firstly visit the caves and then do all the prehistoric entertainments.
Depending on the crowds in the park, we add an animator and therefore activities.
You can however make your reservation for the guided tour of the caves organized at fixed times (see timetables according to the calendar)
Our recommendation: before your arrival, organize your day according to the times indicated on our calendar page.
Is it possible to conduct the prehistoric workshops?
Most of the prehistoric workshops are distant from 3 to 5 minutes walking.
There is many paths through the park. The schedules take into account movements between 2 nearby activities. The 2 workshops furthest from each other are “pottery” and “fire” but you will not take more than 5 minutes by walking slowly with a young child.
Remember to download the mobile app to know the activities at any time!
What is the best way to organize your day ?
We advise you to plan your day by targeting the workshops you absolutely want to do and the time at which you prefer to visit the caves.
What is the age recommended for carrying out the workshops ?
We have indicated the recommended age for each activity, but obviously everything depends on the agility and precocity of each child.
Are the workshops canceled in case of rain ?
No, because all activities can be done under cover, with the exception of megalith traction and thruster shooting, but it is rare that the rain falls continuously... and nothing stops the valiant hunters!
Is the park shaded ?
There are many shaded areas in the park. The picnic and entertainment areas are also shaded.
Are pets allowed in the park and in the caves?
Pets are allowed in the park provided that their owners keep them on a leash, ensure the tranquility of visitors (barking) and the rules of cleanliness (excrement).
For the visit of the caves, only pets that can be carried throughout the visit are authorized.
What can you do with children from 3 years old ?
A dedicated storytelling tour (tale) is offered on Sundays to families with young children (3/5 years). It is necessary to reserve it on the internet.
The workshops "painting, prehistoric pottery and fire techniques" complete this visit in order to immerse the little ones in Prehistory.
Parents can help the little ones to adorn and shoot spears.
The excavation workshop can also be attended by the parents for the youngest.
How does the tale visit go?
It takes place every Sunday at 1 p.m. and to participate you just need to book online minimum 24 hours in advance. It takes an average of 1.15 hours to visit
Can we do only the tale visite ( without park access) ?
The tale visit is an integral part of the park's activities requiring the 1-day pass.
Can children go alone on workshops areas ?
Children are the responsibility of parents / carers and must be accompanied by at least 1 adult.
It is therefore not possible to buy 1-day Park tickets for children and cave-only tickets for adults.
The Concept of the Park is to share family entertainment. Adults who do not wish to carry out the activities can take advantage of the relaxation areas near the entertainment venues.
Should adults also participate in animations ? Do I have to participate in workshops ?
The prehistoric activities that we offer are as much for adults as for children.
The concept of the park is to share family entertainment.
However, no one is obliged to carry out the activities.
Relaxation areas are located near the entertainment venues.
Only wearers of the 1-day Pass bracelet have access to the park. Children are the responsibility of the parents and must be accompanied by at least one adult.
What outfit to wear for the workshops?
WHAT OUTFIT TO WEAR FOR THE WORKSHOPS?
At "Grottes du Cerdon", you are "on the ground" as close as possible to nature.
Dress accordingly in clothing suitable for outdoor activities which can be more or less dirty, depending on your abilities.
Remember that you are leaving your era!
How to reserve tickets for a departure to visit the caves?
When purchasing your tickets on our website, you will be able to select the time at which you wish to take the guided tour.
You will thus have the certainty that tickets will be reserved for you on the chosen departure.
When you arrive on our site, present yourself at reception no later than 15 minutes before departure with your tickets. If you buy your tickets on the spot, you will have the possibility of choosing your time of visit of the caves according to the remaining availability.
I booked a departure hour on a visit but I want to change. Is it possible ?
Report it to reception upon your arrival on our site and we will do so within the limit of available places.
I purchase my tickets on the internet. Should I print them or can I present my reservation on my phone ?
To avoid any problem, it is preferable to have proof of purchase on your side with your tickets downloaded beforehand on your smartphone. 3 or 4G coverage on the site is not always easy. However if you forget, do not worry: we have the trace of your reservation at the reception of the site!
Remember to come to the site 15 minutes before the start of the reserved visit or activities.
Can you bring your pic pic ? Is there a snacking point ?
We provide our visitors with several picnic areas, sheltered or not.
Our snack point "le Chasseur Cueilleur" offers snacks of local products as well as hot or cold drinks, to consume on the spot or to take away in the heart of the park.
The snack is open continuously throughout the day.
Is it possible to do the workshops with a stroller ?
The Park is relatively flat and access between the workshops is by dirt or grassy paths. Pedestrian access to reach the park is not possible by stroller. You must ask the reception for the best way to reach the park (small train route when it is not running).
Same time as for users of the trail that is not passable by stroller (stairs)
