There is plenty to do in Brisbane to entertain both adults and kids together. Check out these ideas to for a fun ‘kidult’ day out.
Go jumping indoors in Skyzone at Macgregor. You can bounce to your heart’s content and burn a few excess calories at the same time. Jump on huge trampolines, between huge trampolines, off the walls, into pits of foam, all while shooting hoops and dodging balls. And when you’re done jumping and leaping, have a game of laser tag in the three-storey arena.
Get your skates on at Stafford Skate Centre. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time with the retro skates, decor and playlist. If ice skating is your preference, try Iceworld at Acacia Ridge and Boondall.
Try your hand at indoor karting at Slideways. It’s located at 870 Kingsford Smith Drive, Hamilton. The track is a 425-metre, two-level indoor track, complete with a bridge, tunnel and loop of the carpark. It’s safe and exciting at the same time.
Escape rooms are one of the fastest urban activities for all ages. Escape Hunt is a global company with its site at 77 Russell St, West End. There are six rooms and three games. You have to complete the clues to progress through the game and escape the rooms. Each of the experiences is Brisbane-themed.
Take a paddle in a kayak or stand-up paddle boarding at Riverlife at Kangaroo Point. You can go it alone or with an instructor. Enjoy great CBD views while you splash around safely on a daytime or nighttime paddle. If you prefer, you can go rock climbing instead on the Kangaroo Point Cliffs.
For the little ones, visit Where the Wild Things Are. This is the magical name of a bookshop with books for every child, from chamomile calm to wickedly wild. Dedicated to children’s books, this bookshop has everything from board books (for little ones interested in chewing on books), junior fiction and novelty books to the latest, thrilling Young Adult book series.
