Embark on an exceptional adventure in the underground river which was diverted by Le Nôtre in 1654 during the creation of the French formal gardens. This specially designed and interactive trip draws on La Fontaine’s text « The love of Cupid and Psyche ». Guided along on the Styx, the river of the classical underworld and equipped with front lamps and thigh boots, you will go through a series of tests of agility and logic… An unprecedented and intense adventure performed by professional actors!
