Spring into the school holidays at The District Outdoor Adventure Park

  • Written by Skye Vadas


With Melbourne still buzzing from the recent culmination of awe-inspiring TV hit Ninja Warrior, The District Docklands is giving everyone the chance to become a champion in their own right these school holidays, with the launch of an Outdoor Adventure Park opening on Saturday 21 September!

 

Situated under the Melbourne Star, immerse yourself in the challenges and triumphs of all the Outdoor Adventure Park has to offer, with a range of obstacles, activities and sports challenges designed to suit those of varying ages and abilities.

 

Will you be the ultimate champion on The Eliminator, jumping to avoid a wipe-out, or do you have what it takes to combat the inflatable commando course known as the Mega Extreme? These obstacles will have you ducking, jumping, crawling, climbing and sliding your way to victory while trying to compete against your teammate, friends or family members.

 

For sports lovers, get your muscle on, when four challengers are harnessed in to try and make the touchdown or sink the ball in the basket on the Extreme Sports Challenge. But there’s a catch, participants are connected to each other with the bungee, making this tug of war nothing less than extreme!

 

If extreme sports are not your forte, you can showcase your acrobatic skills with backflips and somersaults on the Bungee Trampoline – an ultimate crowd favourite!

 

If all of the action has got you craving a well-earned break, its time to sit back and relax in big, comfy recliner seats with plenty of new movies for the kids (and parents too) at HOYTS.

 

Or if you’re in the mood for some laughs, spend the day challenging your friends and family at arcade games, dodgem cars or bowling at leisuretainment arcade, Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq!

 

The laughs don’t stop there. Spend the day falling about at O’Brien Icehouse (and practising your ice-skating skills of course), or working through the twists and turns of Glow Golf Docklands.

 

To ensure the little ones don’t miss out on any of the fun, Chipmunks Playland is the place to go, and parents looking to sit back and relax can enjoy a treat at Chipmunks Café.
