The weekdays could be a stuck-up routine for city dwellers thus, the weekends are usually greeted with great joy as it seems like a breakthrough from the routine. However, sometimes there are times where it felt that even the same routine keeps on happening during the weekends; A day of strolling around the mall, shopping, catching dinner and movies, or simply having a lazy day at home.
A week ago, I decided to let myself have a non-ordinary, non-basic, non-repetitive weekend when I visited Houbii, an Urban Adventure Park located at Pondok Indah. Situated in an enormous hall, there are a total of 6 courses that you can enjoy at Houbii. The courses consists of the ever tangling Ropes Course, the adventurous Ninja Course, the athletic Dodge Ball Arena, the daring Extreme Slide, the sporty Slam Dunk Arena, and last but not least the bouncy Houbii Airbag.
For you who are easily bored, don’t worry because there are plenty of activities to do- even to finish one course can be kind of tiring especially for the Ropes and Ninja Course as it is the most variative and challenging of all. My favorite is the Houbii Airbag arena- an area filled only with a giant plastic airbag where you can jump as much as you want. Of all, I think this is the most stress relieving activity because you can jump your problems out and for that exact reason, I dare to nominate this course as my favorite.
Overall, spending an hour for my weekend in Houbii is quite an exhilarating experience. It is new, fresh, and for some reason it is able to detoxify my mind from all the weekdays hassle. Therefore, even though the pricing might be considered as a little bit high (Non-Members: Rp. 200.000,00 for weekends and Rp. 150.000,00 for weekdays), I recommend to visit Houbii for weekend getaways with your loved ones, be it your family or your friends.
