Exercise for grown ups is so BORING grin

I'd play in soft play like a flash!

I figure trampoline parks are like adult soft play. I am yet to visit our local one but very much looking forward to the chance!

There is in some places.

The local Monkey Puzzle play area near me opens it up for adults on weekend nights.

There are in london

I think there is a museum of happiness somewhere near Brick Lane which has one - but haven't been there myself (yet...)

Slightly worried about sending other trampolines spiralling into space with my mass blush

I'm nowhere near London but am pleased someone has recognised this is a Thing!

There is one in Portsmouth

There are! Lots of cities have soft play for adults within bars, there's trampoline places,

Amusement Parks are parks for adults :D

What about those go ape parks? Tree top experiences? They have zip wires and all sorts of snazzy things to play on :D

My local park has adult exercise equipment which is ace fun.
I know of a playbarn place in North Wales that is open for adults after 9pm.

I read something about an adult soft play/ball pit recently.

If exercise is boring you're doing it wrong ;)

Have you tried the zombie running apps? You run and play a game at the same time?

Zumba? Ballet? Water polo? Scuba diving? I have my licence and it was a weekly class In a local pool! So much fun :D
Basket ball? Football? It's as fun as you make it _

Are you in the south west? We have woodlands and creley (?) which have massive indoor play areas, water slides etc. I went for my birthday last yeargrin

Just had to be really careful how I googled that...

Went for "soft play centre for grown ups" as "adult softplay" sounded like it would throw up all kinds of stuff...

blackteasplease Mon 03-Apr-17 15:11:59

I always thought climbing wall was a bit like adult soft play.

strawberryvanillachocolate Mon 03-Apr-17 15:19:32

I really can't run! The only forms of exercise I might enjoy are too expensive/inconvenient for me to do regularly.

That sounds very interesting Harriet, please do expand wink

Quite a few parkour parks, which are adult not really very soft, but basically soft play.

I was in one last summer on holiday. Not o my for adults but adults are welcome to use the equipment. Adventure farm. Somewhere around Derbyshire/Staffordshire.

Get a bike, nothing brings back childhood memories and that feeling of sheer exuberance of being alive like bombing down a hill in an early summer morning. Also get a strava account so you know how fast you were going compared to everyone else grin

I love swings. Now that play areas are all fenced off, though, you can't casually slide over if there's no children around - and I'm not brave enough to go all malice aforethought in my local park. I'm too fat for trampoline parks round me, so I suspect I'd be too fat for adult soft play as well - but I love the thought. They didn't exist when I was a child, but if I ever lose weight, I'll be in there like a ferret up a trouser leg.

Go ape is fab

There are a few ninja warrior gyms in the UK. Sort of like a playground for adults. Unfortunately none of them are anywhere near me.
