Where do the young ones go? 5 new hangouts of millennials

Gone are the days of spending the weekends in malls or meeting with friends in coffee shops. This bunch of young adults is all about trying something new everyday, which also means hanging out somewhere that offers more than good food and pleasing ambiance. 

So, where do millennials go and what do they do during their free time? Perhaps one of these:

Defying gravity at Trampoline Park

Many people bounced with joy as their dream to jump and fly came true when this trampoline park in Mandaluyong City opened its doors. 

Trampoline Park, whose concept came from Britain, has dozens of trampoline mats—in lieu of walls and floors—where guests can jump and cartwheel their stress away. 

While it looks fun to bounce around, the park serves as a sort of fitness center where Zumba classes and plyometrics, among others, are held. Those who dream of slam dunking can also do so as Trampoline Park has mounted basketball rings for all basketball lovers. Guests can also try parkour and do aerial tricks in the facility. 

According to Trampoline Park, working out on trampolines burns up to 1000 calories an hour, improves balance and strengthens heart, among others.

Reminiscing childhood at Ball Pit Manila

Since ball pits in amusement parks actually have age limit, Ball Pit Manila was conceived to be the playground for adults who want to feel like a child again. 

Guests can dive into a pit of 80,000 white balls in this first and biggest adults-only ball pit playground cafe located in Makati City.

The standard entrance fee of P349/ hour comes with free coffee or iced tea. And remember, in this playground: the older, the better.

Solving mysteries at Breakout Manila

Thrill-seekers who love to play detective and live in different scenarios with well-crafted storylines can be found in one of the rooms at Breakout Manila. 

Mind-boggling puzzles, unexpected twists and hidden clues abound as players try to escape the room in 45 minutes--or lest they will be “locked forever” (but not really). 

Breakout Manila, which now has three branches: Pioneer in Mandaluyong, Serendra in Taguig and Katipunan in Quezon City, is the first real-life escape room game in the Philippines. One thing’s certain though, friendships and relationships will surely be tested in this frustratingly fun game.

Ludo, which is Latin for “I play,” has about 700 in-store games available at the guests’s disposal.  

This gem of a bar and cafe in Quezon City is a haven for board game lovers who want to spend time playing with friends while having a drink or one of the establishment’s “crazy Asian” meals. 

Ludo Board Game Bar and Cafe is open until 12 a.m. or until as late as 2 a.m.
