There are a couple of places that offer "escape the room" experiences. You are locked up in a room along with your team, and you have to find the clues and solve the puzzles in order to find an escape route within 60 minutes. These games are themed in order to make it more interesting. It is a lot of fun. You can choose to go with your family or friends. It is advisable to call up and pre-book the slots.

2. Parasailing:

Yes, you read that right! You can fulfill your dream of flying in the air like a bird, at Jakkur airfield. Parasailing is an activity that is very similar to flying a kite, except for the fact that you fly along with the kite. The open parachute is anchored to a moving jeep. It is one of the safest aerosports. If you are too scared to try it alone, you can fly with a friend. How cool is that !

3. Laser Tag:

Laser Tag is a game played in groups. Each person wears a laser tag vest and is given a laser tag pistol. You are supposed to tag your friends (destroy the enemy base) by targeting the infrared sensitive spots on their vests, for which you get points. It is usually conducted in a large indoor arena with minimal lighting. Each game spans about 15 minutes. It is an exciting, action packed game.
