Tushar posted on 22 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.

Jump Away At This 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.

Bubble Football & Laser Tag

DLF Phase 2'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?

In case football is not really your jam, opt for laser tag and the VR games here.

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 Snow World 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. Snow World (previously known as 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.

Sign Up For Art Workshops

It's always a good time to brush up your artistic skills because you never have any idea when or how you might end up needing them and also, creating art can be a lot of fun. Thankfully, Delhi has a bunch of ventures like HobbMob Studio, Delhi Drawing Room and Culture Chauraha that host the most fun workshops and classes. These places offer everything from DIY fairy light-making and block-printing workshops to paint parties, and calligraphy and macrame classes. 

Cooking Classes

Tastesutra is a venture that helps people master cusines and dishes in the most fun and interactive way. The art of plating, chopping, cleaning and cooking everything from starters to desserts (with 7-8 types of dishes) are some of the many things attendees are taught in these classes. The classes are organised in groups of two and can go up to a maximum of 25 people in one group.
