Hong Kong’s industrial areas aren’t conventionally thought of as “weekend escapade” material. But with the increasing need to dodge our blistering heat or moody rainstorms (when can we ever get ‘perfect’ weather?), we searched far and wide for ‘weather proof, fun indoor activities in the city. We found them in places like Kwun Tong, Fo Tan, Lai Chi Kok… Abandoned warehouses have become hives for artists, adventure enthusiasts and young entrepreneurs.
Get creative. Jump onto a hoverboard. Slide stones across a white sheet. Just go ahead and give these fun indoor activities a try. The following 5 spots have buy one get one free offers on the ENTERTAINER App, too, which should guarantee you and your entire squad hours of fun.
Fun Indoor Activities in Hong Kong’s Industrial Areas
As far as pottery workshops go, this one’s surprisingly large, airy and clean. The teachers are friendly, patient and give detailed instructions. Expect to try your hand at creating something useful, like a bowl, cup or plate. Your creation will even be glazed for you, ensuring you have a beautiful memento of your visit. Aprons are provided. All levels welcome.
It’s all about non-violence here. City Hunter is a 10,000 square foot war game centre across two exciting zones. Suitable for players who are six years old and above, this venue is fast becoming the hangout du jour in the city for gathering and partying with family and friends.
If you haven’t yet heard of, or experienced, “pool soccer” or “curling” – you’re in for a treat. Ball Room’s three outlets in Kwun Tong and Lai Chi Kok aren’t only spots for innovative sports but are entire leisure complexes where you and your family and friends can hang out all-day. You may buy refreshments on-site. Food is currently not available, but you may order it in. If you have a particularly big group, call ahead to ask about private bookings.
Get ready for lots of fun and laughter as you try to get both your feet onto the self-balancing scooters. You’ll first be equipped with appropriate safety gear, after which the experienced instructors provide a 10 minute tutorial on how to use the hoverboards. Sessions are either 30 minutes or 1 hour long. The 5,000 square foot venue’s platform serves only 14 hoverboarders at a time, so best to call ahead and book using the “Call” icon on Azzita’s page, on the ENTERTAINER App.
This isn’t just a whole bunch of bouncing around, although there’s nothing wrong with that, either. We had a ball looking at snaps on Instagram showing the Ryze’s kid-friendly foam pit, plus silk ropes, trapeze and monkey bars for more advanced players. Throw yourself into the trampoline grid or put your arm and leg strength to the test in the ninja course at this next-level trampoline park. Perfect for spontaneous outings, or even full-blown birthday parties.
