Head for one of the many activity multiplexes in Lyon and its surrounding area!
It's air-conditioned! So forget the heat and have fun!
With its climbing wall and numerous other activities on offer, Azium has something for the whole family! For tiny tots there's a ball pit and giant slide, and for older kids there's a zipline and rope bridge. For the adrenaline junkies, the bungee Power Jump should definitely do the trick!
Exalto is another air-conditioned venue that's perfect for summer outings. It boasts 4 activity areas: a trampoline, "funclimb" climbing walls made up of lots of different fun and colourful modules, a laser game area, and a virtual reality experience, all right next to the canal-side flea and antique market known as Les Puces.
To enjoy some fresh air in a more sedate manner, make for the city's museums. Ever been to Mini World? It's great, and all the better for being entirely air-conditioned! In need of oxygen and fresh air?
Pay a visit to the City Aventure leisure park in Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon, to enjoy the sweet, cool air beneath its shady, century-old trees!
If the temperature rises too much, you can enjoy an indoor free fall experience with family or friends (age 5 or more) inside IFly's enormous glass tube.
Heatwave? What heatwave?
