Ah, summer’s here and we’re dashing indoors. But that doesn’t necessarily mean spending the next three months sat inside watching Netflix and filling your face with takeaway (although, as it happens, we’ve rounded up the must-see series and appropriate munchable pairings right here).
Instead, get out there and head to BOUNCE Dubai’s indoor parkour park, also known as the assault course from Ninja Warrior, actually known as X-Park.
At the Al Quoz activity centre, best known for its awesome trampoline park, you can take on some of the trickiest and most physically demanding challenges from the global hit TV show.
So, in the spirit of keeping active, and unleashing our inner ninja/parkour free runner, the Time Out Dubai team took the afternoon to try their hand at one of the top challenges around. From the warped wall (a concave, roughly 4-metre-high wall you have to run up), to zip lines, up-and-unders, slacklines, spider walls, climbing walls, spinning logs and more, they tried it all.
Emphasis on “tried”. Because they did not succeed. Suffice it to say that Time Out Dubai won’t be training up its own ninja army any time soon.
You can check out the team’s efforts below, in this week’s episode of Time Out Dubai Vlogs, on our YouTube channel.
And, what’s more, you can win passes to BOUNCE Dubai and try out the X-Park for yourself, just by commenting on the video and subscribing to the Time Out Dubai YouTube channel (which is here).
Every week we get out and about into this awesome city and find out the best stuff there is going on. Whether it’s jumping out of planes, jumping off of mountains, swimming with sharks, failing to surf, taking on the city’s craziest food challenges, getting a kiss from a seal, falling out of supercars or anything in between, if it’s happening in your city, the Time Out Dubai crew are on it.
