Rock climbing, trampoline platforms, zip wires and pedal car tracks – SuperPark’s the kind of place worth putting down your phones for.
Here’s the thing: We love our weekend shebang of Netflix marathons, looking for a new go-to dinner spot or trying that facial oil in our makeup stash. But if you’re itching to do something new – and not to mention, a get-off-your-bum kind of activity – a trip to an indoor activity park with over 20 exciting activities might suffice.
We’re talking about SuperPark, a fun new indoor playground concept hailing from Helsinki. Opening its doors here in Singapore on 17 November, the 40,000-square-foot area will have plenty of sports activities and fun obstacles including an augmented climbing wall, trampoline platforms, foam pits, a parkour area, skate and scoot areas (where you can rent scooters, helmets and safety pads for free) and pedal car tracks. If you think this sounds like something for kids, think again – SuperPark doesn’t discriminate in age. In fact, everyone is encouraged to try a hand at everything (though we’d leave the somersaults and backflips to the pros).
We had the pleasure of checking out a couple of parks in Helsinki (yes we do solid research for you) and it’s everything we’d imagine it to be. The park is split into three different areas – an Adventure Area for the young ones featuring zip wires, a mini foam pit, and an obstacle course with tube slides and tunnels that are big enough for parents to join in the fun. Fun fact: Founder of SuperPark, Taneli Sutinen had his eureka moment while struggling to manoeuvre through a kid-size playground with his daughter.
The Freestyle Hall is where thrill-seekers can put their skating skills to the test and challenge friends to an interactive parkour game or go ninja warrior-mode at obstacle courses. We know what you’re thinking but don’t fret – friendly park instructors are present at all areas so safety is top-notch.
Finally, channel your competitive side at the Game Arena where you can compete with an AI goalkeeper at the soccer corner, shoot some hoops at a basketball court and swing for the stands in the baseball net. All goals, swings and scores are measured by radar and digital systems so you’ll want to beat that high score stat.
Already thinking about your next team-building day with the work fam or party with the kiddos? There are seven party rooms for something fun and unique.
We said it first here: this is pure unadulterated fun. SuperPark’s going to change your idea of all future hangout seshs’.
SuperPark Singapore opens on 17 November at Suntec City. Day passes range from $18 to $40 per person. Watch this space for more details…
