Tushar posted on 25 May

Done with the sun? No plan for a tan? No worries. Nobody said you couldn’t have a great day out when it’s scorching hot outside. Check out these fun, indoor activities you can do around the city without hitting your boiling point.

Go To India's Largest Trampoline Park

Skyjumper Indoor Trampoline Park is spread across 13,000 sq. ft. (that’s massive) and has 100 wall-to-wall interconnected trampolines you can jump on. They also have a big pool of foam cubes you can leap, hop, or go flying into. You can enjoy a jumpy game of volleyball on the trampolines, or go for the one-on-one variant. There’s dodgeball, too, so you can take out all your frustration with some well-aimed headshots.

Play Bubble Football

Good Earth City Center’s Oh My Game will have you playing footy with a zorb bubble as your costume. The game is played with only five players per team, and each half is only five minutes long. But the really tough part is being inside a zorb bubble and scoring a goal against your opponent – while making sure you knock them down too! That is the only way to win it. Up for the challenge?

Ice Skating

Best way to beat the heat? Entering an ice rink, of course. There are a couple of them around the city—iSkate in Gurgaon and Ski India in Noida. The former has a huge rink which can easily accommodate about 150 people, with enough instructors to guide you and a cafe to hang at. Ski India, the latter, is Delhi NCR’s first ski resort, complete with skiing and slope tobogganing to bobsledding, snow-sledging, ice-skating and a snow carousel.

Play Soap Football

As if we didn’t love the sport enough already, there’s now a more, well, slippery version of it—enter: Soap football. It’s exactly what it sounds like—a cushioned floor covered with plastic and soap water (who needs friction anyway?) and the whole thing surrounded by inflated tube walls so you don’t go flying out. Think you can score a goal or two here?
