Explore the deserted island where the Swiss Family Robinson was shipwrecked. Cross a bridge at the foot of a large leafy tree and climb handcrafted wooden stairs. Explore the living quarters of the famous adventurers and discover open-air rooms brimming with a bevy of 19th-century articles salvaged from the wreck.

Don’t forget, This is a treehouse and it doesn’t come with an elevator. That means navigating the 116 steps.

Along your never-ending trek will be such exciting scenes as the pulley system that uses bamboo buckets and a water wheel to get water to the top of the tree. When your attention isn’t riveted on this and the other “amazing innovations”, you’re probably considering backtracking. (Sorry, once you start, you have to keep going.)

Fun Facts:

  • A large wooden wheel gathers water and carries it up to the rooms inside the treehouse.
  • There are a total of 330,000 leaves that make up the leaves for the tree.
  • Since the Swiss Family Treehouse tree isn’t exactly a real tree, but a fabricated tree, it also has fabricated roots. The roots are made out of concrete.
