We’ve put together a list of places in Melbourne where it’s socially acceptable to act like a kid again.

Taking the occasional break from being an adult is absolutely necessary, because let’s face it – being a grown-up is really really hard. The best way to get out of your own mind is to let your inner-child take over for a while. No we don’t mean throwing a tantrum in the chocolate aisle of the supermarket because they’re out of Kinder Surprises.


Zero Latency – Virtual Reality

22-32 Steel St, North Melbourne VIC 3051

Zero Latency offer the world’s first multiplayer free-roam virtual reality experience. Intrigued? We are! Get a group of friends together and make a booking. But prepare yourself, this is not for the faint hearted – there are zombies EVERYWHERE and you’re going to have a hard time convincing your brain that it’s not real. That being said, you owe it to your younger self (who could only ever dream of a virtual reality game) to check it out!

Le Mans Lazertag

59 Waterview Cl, Dandenong South VIC 3175

Maybe the idea of virtual reality is a little too intense for you, that’s okay! Option two is an all-time favourite; Lazertag! Le Mans Lazerzone have recently had their facilities re-vamped and can boast an area that will fit 35 players. They also offer bbq amenities, go karting, a licensed bar and paintball arena! Aw yeah!

Trapt Escape Room

377 Lonsdale St, Melbourne VIC 3000

If you have never been to an ‘escape room’ before then this recommendation is for you. A typical escape room experience involves you and your team being briefed with a story, blindfolded and taken into a room. From here you are required to solve a series puzzles, within a time frame, in order to win back your freedom. It’s all logical thinking and combined effort – which makes for an excellent corporate team building idea! Trapt in Melbourne CBD offer four different themed rooms and best of all, an underground speakeasy bar a where you can celebrate your successful escape.

Xtreme – Air Trampolining

1 Fiveways Blvd, Keysborough VIC 3173

Sometimes all you need is a safe place to bounce those adult woes away on a grown-up sized trampoline. Enter, Xtreme Air! They even provide foam-pits, dodgeball courts and slam-dunk lanes.

And hey, if all of the above ain’t your scene – there’s always still finger-painting, pasta necklace making or nap-time for those that are willing to push the boundaries of weird to embrace their inner child.
