Growing up watching American tv shows, I envied the way kids and teens could just skip over to their backyard to jump around on their very own personal trampoline.If like most Singaporeans you’ve lived in high rise apartments your whole life, jumping around trampolines was just a dream unfulfilled.
Originating from Melbourne, BOUNCE has opened its doors on our sunny island. This indoor playground is fun for all ages but especially for adults! Where else can you run and jump around like you did as a kid?! BOUNCE is split into 3 areas, depending on your expertise. Conveniently located at Orchard Cineleisure, tickets are available for $24 per person for 60 minutes, which is more than enough time to try out some backflips and full twist jumps!
What’s the best part about BOUNCE? They host birthday parties and events!
So if you’re looking for something new to try out the next time your town. Head on over to BOUNCE!
Tip: Book in advance, BOUNCE gets full on the weekends and holidays!
Look Out: You MUST purchase a pair of BOUNCE grip socks at $3 before you can start having fun at BOUNCE.

2. Laser Tag

If you’ve seen even a single episode of How I Met Your Mother, you would have seen how Barney Stinson is crazy about laser tag. After trying it out myself, I can see why.
Laser tag gets a bunch of people involved in combat, don’t worry it’s 100% safe! You’re given a vest that tracks how many times you get shot and a gun. You’re then given scenarios and now the fun really begins!
The arena is chock full of hiding places and sharp turns, with thumping background music and flashing lights laser tag is bound to get your heart racing!
While it might be a little pricey, depending on the scenario and the number of missions you could be paying anywhere between $15 and $35 per person. But if you’re looking for something that encourages a little more team play then laser tag is a great way to get your heart pumping!
What’s great about laser tag here in Singapore? You can choose your location! Adrenaline Laser Tag allows you freedom to choose where you want to play! Bummer is you have to enquire and book in advance! If you’re looking for something a bit more traditional and controlled, opt for LaserOPS.
