Summer in Shanghai means soaring temperatures and stubborn showers. If you're looking for something fun to do that doesn't expose you to the elements, here are a couple we've rounded up, from indoor rock climbing and cage batting to laser tag and trampolines.
Where: Jump 360, 1408 Jidi Lu (near Jizhan Lu) | 258 Changjiang Lu (near Jungong Lu)
Trampolining has been steadily growing in prominence in China, with a few of these halls popping up in Shanghai in the last two years Jump 360 is one of our favorite - this indoor bounce house stretches out over 5,550sqm and holds a few dozen trampolines, foam pits and challenging obstacle courses. Two obstacle courses as well as a parkour zone for all you free runners help keep bouncers from getting bored.
Where: Shanghai Stadium Rock Climbing Center, Entrance 6, 666 Tianyaoqiao Lu (near Lingling Lu)
The highest rock climbing wall in China is located in Shanghai reaching over 20m high with 8 different walls that ranges in difficulty, so is accesibile for both beginners and experts alike. It's a great option to stay in shape as rock climbing works out your body and helps in buidling core strength. The best part about the Shanghai Stadium Rock Climbing Center is the price, though. Most rock climbing places require patrons to own their own gear which can be quite pricey, but this center costs less than RMB100 per session with gear included.
Where: CAGES Bar and Sports, 3/F Jing'an Sports Centre, 428 Jiangning Lu (near Wuding Lu)
CAGES Bar and Sports boasts over 700sqm of space, including a 400sqm turf area, 200sqm sports bar and restaurant, and a second-floor viewing area. There are a variety of activties available for a good workout while still keeping dry - head over for their batting lanes that boast “state of the art” technologies as well as imported gear and machines from America. Though the facility was designed to function well enough for professionals, any skill level is welcome to take a swing.
Where: Mr. X, Bldg, 1 550 Jumen Lu (near Quxi Lu)
Working out more the grey matter than sheer muscles, Mr. X is a brain tickling challenge where you and a group of friends find yourselves locked in a room with nothing but your wits. The objective: make it out as quickly as possible. Clues and red herrings are strewn about the room, forcing you to use your observational and logic skills to get to freedom. This quirky life-sized puzzle is great for parties and groups of people for when the weather isn’t working in your favor.
