We strongly recommend that you book your tickets online, a head of time, in order to preserve the desired time allocation. The entire Foresta Lumina experience takes place outdoors. For safety reasons due to partially leveled but not asphalted trails it is important to wear adapted footwear and remain cautious at all times in order to avoid risk of injuries (sprain, bone fracture etc.). When acquiring your tickets, you undertake the activity ACCEPTING THE RISKS and ACKNOWLEDGING THE CAUSES entailed by this activity. You agree to play an active role in managing these risks by taking a precautionary attitude towards yourself and other individuals in your surroundings.
The experience still takes place even in the rain; be sure to bring a rain jacket. Of course, if there is a major storm, we reserve the right to close Foresta Lumina, in order to ensure the safety of our staff and visitors. Management takes the decision to open/close at 3 pm.
Cancellation : If we need to cancel certain time schedules, a purple banner will appear at the top of our website starting at 3 pm and the information will also be on our Facebook page under: Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook & Foresta Lumina. It is therefore your responsibility to verify in case of bad weather conditions if the events are cancelled. Guests will then receive an email during the day to give them the procedure to postpone their visit to a later date for the current season. If you do not see a purple banner around 3 pm, Foresta Lumina is open.
The entire experience takes place outside within the Canyon’s trails which are partially leveled but not asphalted. These paths are not recommended for people with reduced mobility since they consider several step levels, downhill and climbing as well as the crossing of the Canyon’s suspended footbridge. Using a baby carrier is recommended although strollers are not recommended including the off-road/sports models.
Your ticket is valid for the current season only. If you cannot print your ticket, keep your confirmation on your portable phone or mention your name or order number upon arrival. The time you booked is a time space so for example, if you booked a ticket for 9 pm your departure is assured between 9 pm and 9:30 pm.
