Equilibrium

Smack in the centre of town, this climbing wall focuses only on the bouldering technique, which means no ropes to keep you clinging. So if you slip, you fall. But it’s not as harsh as it sounds because the entire floor is padded and as they very aptly put it: A fall will only break into a smile.

When: 6am-11pm

Contact: +91 8861684444

Price: INR 3,300 per month or INR 150 {morning} and INR 200 {evening} for a single session

Not the most popular sport in town, this one is amazing once you’re hooked to it. Or rather once you’re not tossed around like clothes in a washing machine. Offering zorbing for land, water and fighting {yes, you can have war in these bubbles}, Discovery Village is the best spot. Once you’re done with floating about in the big bubble balloon, do hit the obstacle and rope course for added adventure.

This multiplayer game sees you use physical and mental strength to ‘tag’ other players. We love that this place has various game configurations to play with. The Death Match requires you to just shoot at anyone playing but the tougher formats, like Capture The Flag, means plenty of team work, strategy, base protection and then eventually find the person from the opposition who is carrying the flag.

Where: #01, 14th Main, 17th Cross, HSR Layout Sector 7

When: Daily, 11am-11pm
